Hey, everybody.It hasn't been too long since my last email and we haven't had a whole lot of exciting stuff happen, but things have continued to move forward. A couple of investigators dropped us, but we found some new ones, including a nice guy named J. and his friend E. who was working with elders down in Cincinnati a while ago. We had a pretty good lesson with J. and with a member who lives nearby. Elder Cole and I went to the transfer meeting on Thursday to help set things up, since the meeting is held in the church building in our area. It was interesting to see the changes in the mission and to hear the testimonies of the missionaries who were going home. We had a lot of rain one night this week, which led to a lot of mud on my pants, but it didn't rain too much while we were outside, so that was okay. None of our investigators showed up at church again. If you guys could pray for them to have a desire to do so, that would be great. We have done a lot of knocking in different parts of our area, which has led to some small successes. We have tried nicer middle class neighborhoods, poorer neighborhoods, and apartment complexes. We hand out a LOT of cards. Hopefully the people who receive them will at least look up Mormon.org due to some cancellations, we didn't have very many lessons last week, but we've had some good help from our members. I love all of you back home so much! I hope everything goes well for you guys!
