August 11, 2015 Email

Hey Fam! Sorry this is later than usual! We went on a crazy cool hike yesterday and accidentally ended in taking a wrong turn on the trail. I'm sending pictures in another email to you guys. 

It's good to hear from you guys! I will keep praying for him and for the rest of the family as well. Definitely let me know when Stockton gets his papers and when he will open it!

This week has been pretty good for us here. We have had great success with getting contact with people and getting in to help them. We have done several service opportunities throughout the week such as log splitting, moving, yard work and various little things. The goals we set for this week have been most of the way met and it is awesome. Elder Shapiro and I have both been working diligently and with what we have to work with. One lesson we had on Saturday was very good and interesting at the same time. The investigator has been meeting with other faiths and has received some anti-Mormon doctrine and has been studying it. It's a bit of a struggle talking with him because he thinks we are there to contend with him on doctrine when we aren't. In the end of every lesson we go out respecting one another and having questions answered. Sunday was the toughest time for us. We have been trying to reschedule a time to visit a returning less-active that we have been putting back all week. We went through a huge hassle and running around to try and get it done. Finally, after all of this fuss and buss, we got to meet with her and had a great lesson. 

So that's my week for you. Hope you all have a great week and talk to you next week!

Elder Smith
