Letter # 42

Hello Mom and Family,

It sounds like you have all had a great week this last week going up to the dam and camping this last weekend.  From the pictures that you sent it looks like it was a lot of fun and that you all enjoyed your weekend up there.  I am glad to see that dad got dropped on by some birds.  I don't want to make fun of him because it happened to me about 6 weeks ago when I was walking through the town center.  Luckily we were walking to the flat for lunch and we were pretty close to the flat so I didn't care too much.  So dad I know exactly how you felt when it happened to you.  

Well this last week was a pretty tough week for us.  We have still been doing a lot of finding with just a little bit of teaching in there.  Finding has been kind of rough for me because I see a lot of the same people all the time when I walk through town.  We are also having a really hard time finding people who are interested in learning more.  We do have some pretty good ideas for this next week to maybe help us out a little bit and make it more fun.  I am sure that mom is going to be excited to hear that we are going to try and put up a family history stand in city center and hopefully we will get some success with that.  We don't know when we are going to do it and if we don't do it this week we will definitely be doing it sometime soon.  We also have a couple other things that we want to try out so I am hoping that we will see some great success this next week.

Speaking of family history I didn't know that there was going to be a big indexing thing going on until I looked at the church news on the church website.  I thought that you would all be doing it so I was just wondering if you were or not. I haven't heard of anyone doing it over here so I don't know if they are doing it or not.  I am not sure if anyone is doing it over here but I am sure that there are probably a few people that are doing it.

Well I have some bad news for you all.  We did have the iPad training meeting this last week and it was definitely a long travel to get there.  We were on a coach for about 4 hours and we were up at 2:45 in the morning.  I was really exhausted the few days after that long day.  The bad news is we traveled all the way to the mission home and back for the training and we didn't receive the iPads yet.  I have no idea when we are going to be getting them but I will let you know when we do obviously.  

Well I don't really have much time because it is another bank holiday and we are at the church emailing with one computer.  I am sorry that I wasn't able to reply to all of your emails this week but I promise that I will speak to you all in a few days.   I am sure that you all won't be sleeping much that night so just have the iPad next to you at all times.

Well like I said I don't have much time and before I go I just want to say something about the quote that I sent last week.  When I truly think of whom I really am I think of being a child of God.  When you come to know that you are a child of God and that he is always there for you at all times then you will have no need to feel inferior.  
Well I hope you all have a great week and I can't wait to speak to you all on Sunday.
