June 25, 2012

Howdy Family,

This week has been weird. I don't really have anything to write you about. Thanks for the pictures Dad! The trip looked fun. Also, I am glad you and Mom had fun on your anniversary.

So, yesterday was somewhat stressful. Sacrament was great as always but Sunday is just so contentious that I just feel gross. Hopefully that will get better.  After church this guy dressed all in black came in and just said he had an appointment with the missionaries. We had never seen him before. As we got talking we realized he lived in a different area and just came to ours. He is studying to become a preacher or something and really just wanted to bicker with us. The member we had on the lesson took the bait and so it was just arguing about the Book of Mormon for like a half hour. We had another lesson that evening with a less active member that struggles with the word of wisdom and that didn't go well either. Mostly him just complaining about his wife.

Saturday was interviews and training with the zone leaders. It was cool but it took all day. We had an appointment for that night but when they got there she just told us to wait outside she was almost ready. Half an hour later she finally came out and we found a bench to sit on. We began talking about why we are here and the parts of the Book of Mormon she had read when her boyfriend showed up and they just got up and left..., I guess that is just how our week was.  

The only big new is that next Monday we will be moving apartments. We will be moving into the Elders apartment and they will be moving into a members while they serve a mission.  The move also means that our area will be getting a lot bigger. Not quite double but almost. I will get to know our new area mostly by myself because we only have a week before Sister Braginets and Sister Callister go home. The good news is that instead of having a 40 minute trip to get to church we will only have to walk for 5-10 minutes. I feel kind of bad for the Elders because we will be taking most of their area and investigators and they will be basically opening a new one out in the boonies. Oh well I guess. So much for learning how to work the doors...,I did learn how to open the doors at the church. Trust me it was an ordeal.

Well, sorry this is short, nothing really happened. The next couple weeks will bring with them lots of changes. It should be fun.

Well, I love you all!
