April 5, 2010

Hey Family,
I just got back from Davenport from Zone P-day so that's why I'm getting this out a little late. Thanks so much for the tape and the Easter Basket. General Conference isn't the same without candy. I also got a few other cards and packages from the ward family, it was great to hear from them.
I'm putting a tape together right now with some good stuff on it. I'm still working on getting the pictures you wanted and the questionnaire you sent me, but it's in the works.
Hey, in general conference I heard that in the next 3 months there will be a temple dedicated in the Phoenix area, is that right? You need to send me a picture of it when it's all done.
This week has been really crazy. We had a ton of appointments and follow-ups to do, but just about everything fell through. It seems like every time we can get a member to go with us, no one is home or they call and cancel.
We also had zone conference this last week so that meant another trip down to Nauvoo, which is always fun, just a long drive. Tomorrow we have an appointment with a new investigator, her name is Amanda. When we taught her it was one of the most powerful and spiritual lessons that we have ever taught being here in Clinton. She wants to be baptized and so we are going to teach her in a member's home tomorrow with some solid members. We also have met a real cool lady named Makeena, she always is asking us really deep questions and always wants to learn more. We have a appointment lined up this week also with a member. We are trying this week to get the members involved with most of our appointments. So just keep them in your prayers that all goes well and we will be able to meet with them.
Conference was SWEET. I have never been so spiritually fed in my life. There was a lot about teaching youth, but some good missionary stuff as well.
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. I wish I could write back about some of the things you told me in the tape, but I'm running out of time. I'll try and shoot you a letter this week.
I LOVE YOU ALL -Elder Hale
