October 20, 2014 Email

Hey family! Sounds like you've had a little bit more of a relaxed week this time. It's cool that you're going to a Blue Man Group concert this week. I would love to be at one of those. And yes I have you guys on Facebook. So I can have you guys and some friends on, but I can't communicate with you guys other than through email. So just a heads up for messaging. 

This week was kind of a slow one for us here. We had an interesting thing going on where we only saw less actives and part member families this week. We did however get a new investigator who seems really interested in the church. We hope to get working with her and get her going. We had some of the schedules changed so we could help others with service and to try and find others who were available. Several people have a sickness going around. In fact, one of the Elders in our apartment has had stomach flu for a few days. He's being very cautious about what he eats and how much he eats so he can get rid of the flu as fast as possible. That's one reason we haven't been able to get in with several people this week. 

One miracle we had was yesterday. We were able to get in with a part member that we haven't been able to get a hold of for a while. They recently had a death in the family and have taken it pretty hard. When we arrived, we actually saw the plan of salvation pamphlet on the table. They've been going through it and the less active member helped her husband to understand it better. She is a great support to him and helps us explain some things that help her as well. We encouraged them to keep turning to God and to draw closer to him. Other than that, nothing exciting happened this week. We were going to go to this fun center center where they've got laser tag, mini golf, and go carts. But it started to rain and some people didn't want to do two rounds of laser tag. Don't know why? 

I love you all and hope to hear from you next week. You're in my prayers and I feel your prayers and love.
