Who’s in the photo with the bear?
That’s weird about hearing about flight plans right now--18 hours??---It still doesn’t feel like my last change. Just yesterday I was saying goodbye to Louis and Ian at 1:00 in the morning after playing pool.
Well, we baptized Elizabeth, and she’s progressing farther than we ever thought she would. We took the chance she was giving us, and we taught everything this week. She’s coming to church without our having to bring her, and is progressing, still it is a little hard though, because she can’t read or write.
We also set the new record for bringing investigators to church on Sunday----the old record was 12 people, was set by Elder Shinners, a year ago, he came in my group and just got home recently, because his brother was going to Iraq. This Sunday we brought 16 invited investigators, composed of three families and a couple other people. We found a family last Sunday night, and they all showed up this Sunday, and they loved it. The Santana family showed up again, despite their economic problems (they don’t show it, but they are suffering---we’ve met couple of their friends) they all came again, and with a friend.
We had a conference with Elder Martino, of the second quorum of the seventy. We learned a lot of the same stuff that Elder Clark taught us last year.
That’s crazy about the hunting trips, especially the photo.
Today was the first P-day since the rules have changed that we all got together as a zone.... I’ll send you pictures.
Well that’s all I can think of, it’s a bit resumed [shortened], but I’m a little tired today.
I’ll send pics--chow for now
