We had the opportunity to Skype with Mitch on Mother's Day for about an hour. It was so exciting to see him and talk to him about his mission. The younger boys really enjoyed getting to see him and ask him questions, it was a great day!
Here is the email:
Hey there! Happy Mother's Day! We had a slow week with our investigators and had a zone meeting here this last week. The zone has been slacking and has been a little off purpose for a while. We had that meeting and the APs had to teach it because the ZLs were dropped because of things that they were doing. It was a little tense. We had this problem before when President already had to come down here and counsel our District on obedience and our missionary purpose. It is difficult to focus on the Lord's work when you see missionaries who are not faithful at obeying the mission rules and aren't focused on what they are on a mission to do.
Aside from the zone issues, we've been meeting with most of our investigators and have really been focusing on getting lessons taught. Our investigators seem to think that we are there to hang out rather than teach them, so we've just been letting them know that we will be going over there to teach and to help them understand why we are there. So we are working and doing service for investigators to help them out and to let them know we are there to help them.
Here is a copy of that Cross-Fit Program that I've been doing. It is effective so long as you do it everyday. You do just the short divisions of the workouts for a half hour everyday.
Also, if it's not too much trouble for you guys, could you send out a few CDs of Vocal Point out here. We can have the music so long as it invites the spirit. If you could do that, that would be awesome and it would change up some of the music we have here already.
I love you all and I pray for you everyday. Keep working hard and keep looking ahead rather than back.
