HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!!!
Well, it has been an interesting week. We were able to have a few lesson appointments work out, which was nice, but we have spent most of our efforts trying to find new people who will meet with us and keep appointments. We were rewarded with a few neat people.
On Wednesday, we had a specialized training with our new mission president, President Daines. We each got to meet him and shake his hand and also meet Sister Daines and their two youngest children. President talked to us all about his goals for his mission and the vision he has for his service here. I think he will be a great President. Since the new set of Elders in the ward are on bikes, we did some rearranging with the areas and our space is now slightly bigger than it originally was when I first got here, which has been nice. It gives us a little bit of unexplored territory to work with.
On Thursday we got to go work with the new elders in their area to help kick-start the work again there. That was pretty fun. They are good guys. The Fourth of July wasn't too exciting for us. We were able to talk to a fair amount of people, and had a nice dinner with some members, but all the fireworks were past our curfew and weren't visible from our windows. Oh, well. :)
I hope you all had a good week. It sounds like you were able to do some fun things. Thank you, Mom, Dad and Maddie for the letters. They were very helpful. I'm working on thinking of birthday stuff. I love you all!
Have a blessed week!
