Good morning. Sounds like everything is going good with you guys. It really is crazy that Spencer is home already. I can remember that day where I opened my call and me and Spencer sat there looking at my information for about 20 minutes. It wasn't that long after that I left. Weird to think that I won't be that much longer till I get home. Less than 10 weeks now. Oh man...I'm tired. Well this week has been a good one. We didn't teach any lessons this week to investigators. We don't have any that we are really working with. This area is really interesting in that regard. Not a whole lot to do except knock doors. In the 2 and a half weeks that I have been here I haven't been in more than 25 percent of the area. It's a really big area and hard to access on foot. My bike is out of commission currently so maybe that would contribute to it. We are working with some less active/recent converts though. I think that is the biggest job to do here in the ward. We have less than 50% activity in the ward. One of the people we are working with is a lady named Nancy Wilson. We taught her twice this week. We went over the gospel of Jesus Christ as well as the 10 commandments. She is super awesome and we are planning on going to the temple visitors center this weekend. We were at church and after sacrament meeting she had to go home, so we stopped to talk to her for a bit. While talking she said she really liked my tie and asked if she could have it. So I took my tie off and gave it to her. One of the weirder things that have happened. The stake president was there so when he saw me without a tie he gave me a really weird look. Luckily in the clerks office they had some extras so I grabbed one and put it on. Another guy we are working with has been a member for about 2 years, and about 6 months after he was baptized he started driving trucks so he went less active since he was constantly on the road. He recently got in a wreck so he is not driving as of right now. He came the last two weeks to church and said the crash was god giving him a second chance. So he is super sweet to work with. Those are two of our main people. We are currently in the finding stages. I just hate knocking doors. It's tedious and ineffective. Well that was our week. One more down, and about 9 to go. Getting so close it's starting to seem real. My companions name is Elder Merrell. He is from Rexburg Idaho. He has been out about 21 months. He came just 6 weeks after me. We get along really well so that's good. My address is 4712 Commons dr. #302 Annandale, VA 22003 I don't really need anything. My clothes are officially giving out, but I can last. Iron on patches and sowing kit has worked wonders. Love you guys!
