Mother and Father,
I am trying my best to think of what we did this week. Okay, we went tracting this past week and decided to do one more door. A woman answered and said !"Elders, please come in!" We had accidentally tracked into an active member. It turned out that they have an woman living in that works doing housework that is interested in the church. We set up a dinner appointment and taught a lesson and it was great. Her name is Saki. (I wonder if she's Japanese and Elder Campbell can speak Japanese to her...if he remembers any.) We also set up some appointments with some old potential investigators, so we pray this week goes well.
On Saturday night we stopped by a less active's house who we had heard had some potential. We talked to him for a little bit and said he was probably going to be leaving his job. We asked what his plans were, and he said that he was thinking of going on a mission. We invited him to church, which he happily accepted, and came for the first time in a long time. The ward is excited for him, and I pray that we can keep moving forward.
This week we got the Area Book Planner App, which means we had to spend hours transferring the data from our physical area books into the app. Our mission will be going entirely paperless soon. The document transfer has been tiring. I do like the scheduling and lesson reporting. Elder Tiai doesn't like it though.
I am curious, what is, "Once I Was a Beehive" about? (I went to St. George for a few days and watched this "Mormon" movie. I loved it. Here's a synopsis: Lane Speer is a 16 year old girl who spends her family vacations camping in the mountains. She takes the memories for granted until she loses her father to an unexpected bout with cancer. Only a year later, as Lane is still reeling from her father's death, he mother remarries a guy that Lane hardly knows. Worst of all, he is a Mormon. To top it off, while they are on their honeymoon, they arrange to have her stay with her Mormon step-aunt who takes her away to a bible-themed girls camp with a bunch of young Mormon girls. Confronted with memories of camping with her family, she tries to find peace with her new surroundings and deal with the death of her father.)
I hope you enjoy your last week of break.
