March 1, 2010

Well, I received your package today, thanks for the tie rack and the letters. It has been great to hear from you this week. I really liked the letter from grandpa about tracking without purse or script. I was telling Elder Eldredge about it when we went out tracting that day, and we just couldn't believe doing something like that today, no one would feed us. It would be a mission just to stay alive. Its hard to hear about Kelsey's companion, that would bug the heck out of me. I'm not even sure what I would do besides drag them around to do the work.
Dad, it sounds like you're busy as always, with work and choir. I miss not being able to go to your performances, and those busy nights around the house. Melanie, so you didn't get accepted, that's ok, I don't know how mom could handle 2 children living far from home. Roxy, I'm trying to find some time to write back, so hold on. Rachel, hope things are going good for you with your packed school schedule and what not. Mom, I glad you liked the tape so much, I actually started another one last night with a jingle about Clinton, you'll like it.
This week Elder Eldredge and I went on splits for a day in town. We got so much done with 4 elders and a car. One lesson we had was with a progressing investigator, we had our third lesson with her and she totally felt the spirit there. She didn't want to admit it but she started tearing up towards the end of the lesson. She told us she is going to come to church this week, so I'm excited. There is another investigator we talked to this week. He's been going through a rough divorce and has been very busy. He started to tell us everything that was going on when a thought came to my mind about when dad told me that in times of trouble, run towards the Lord and not away from Him. I could tell that touched him hard and he agreed to pray about being baptised. There was a little up and down this week but the lessons have really been coming easier to me now. It seems I've learned so much this week. Well, that's all I have time for but there will be a lot of answers to your questions on the tape I'm making.
