April 26, 2010

Yes I got the package from you guys with all the ice cream and food! It was awesome, I didn't know that you could do that. I had a great time with the dry ice too. (It was Brady's 100th day of his mission a couple weeks ago.)
I was going to write a letter and send a package off this week but I didn't have time to put it together. We had transfers this week so Wednesday we had to travel to Peoria, Illinois. I got a new companion, Elder Thurman. He's been out a year this week so he's more versed than Eldredge was. I keep getting companions from Utah though. Elder Thurman is from the Provo area. He's excited about the area with our big teaching pool, but we have already had to drop a few people. Laisha had dropped us. She didn't keep her last appointment and then we went into her work to go and set something up again, but she is just not interested. Is weird because we have really taught her everything all with a member present and I know she has felt the spirit, so it was a little disappointing. We had a appointment planned for Amanda yesterday in a member's home, but just like last time, she texts us 2 hours before the appointment and cancels. It seems like a lot of our investigators have lost the desire to learn. But Mitch is solid. We set up a baptism date for him on the 21st of May. He came to church yesterday and was telling every one about his baptism and he liked the meeting. He's planning to come next week and has gone cold turkey with chewing tobacco. So we are excited for him.
Thank you for the shirts, I haven't received them yet but I'll keep an eye out for them. On Mothers day, I don't know for sure but it sound like after 7 pm I will be calling so that's like after 5 pm your time, I think. We get to use our cell phone so that's why we have to wait till after 7 for the free minutes. Oh I wanted to ask you if you had any information on the genealogy I sent a little while ago? The one I got from a member the had some Hales in her family.
Anyways I LOVE YOU ALL -Elder Hale
