25 August 2010

Sorry guys. Wednesday we went to the Rockies Braves game and didnt get back in time to email. And yesterday the library was shut down. No videos this week, but I really dont care if you put the videos on the blog or not.

I am staying in Evergreen for another six weeks and this is transfer number seven with my Vibe. hahaha Other than that we are working on moving where all our investigators are. They all live in between 15 and 40 miles away and to drive straight to their houses and straight back home it would take 235 miles. (we only get 250 a week) We found a house where they could house us and it would only be 61 miles to drive to all of their houses and back, but they were leasing their house, and they found out the owner defaulted and so now their house was just sold at an auction. YUCK! So we are trying to find another place. I am pressuring the Bishop, Mission President, Zone Leaders (who pressure the stake president who pressures the Bishop), Ward Mission Leader, Housing Coordinators, District Leader, and whoever I can to make sure we get a more efficient place to live. One thing I found in life is the more pressure you give from the most angles you can the more likely your plan is to succeed. And on top of that I discussed with the mission president the situation and asked for more miles. He said he'll give them to me for now the question is how much and he'll call back.

That is the issue that is on the forefront of our minds right now. We are teaching 6 families, but we are at the mercy of whoever can give us rides to do work so we cannot be in any way flexible at this time. It is kind of senseless to have weekly planning right now. We did that today and all of the points discussed in Preach my Gospel point to a need for us to move to be able to work with our investigators in that manner.

I hope that all is well back home.

Well I dunno what else to tell ya!

I love ya guys tons, and we'll talk soon.

So life is good. Coming up on transfer week so I will let you know the results of that soon. I think I'm staying though. My companion is starting to work. I told the mission president about 3 weeks back that there are some issues that need to be addressed with him and his previous companion, but I'd let him call so that the information is a slight bit more accurate. I really hope that it all works out since they talked about it today.

I am pretty excited an hopeful to stay. I guess I don't know what to write to you... HOpefully you enjoy the videos, I never feel like writing much anymore, so I figure thats the best way to do it.

I do love you guys and I will talk to the president about flying to SLC... I love ya tons take care of yourselves

11 August 2010

Hey y'all,

How are things. I got a 4gb card for my camera the other day and I decided I was going to start making videos throughout the week to send to you guys because I always forget what I wanna talk about in my letters.

So other than that life is good. We have another baptism on Saturday, so that should be exciting.

So today we saw Deborah the one who just lost her son in a custody case. You need to keep her in your prayers. I'm not gonna say too much, because I kind of am a minister and can't disclose a lot of information.

I don't know what else to say. Watch the videos and you'll get some of it. Other than that we have a member present lesson tonight and a couple refferals and we will be doing a lot of tracting. I am loving this area! It is beautiful and where else can you get 4 baptisms in a transfer?? haha Well keep your smile on and we'll talk soon.

Love ya,
