This weeks email. This mission is making him actually write quite a bit, for a man of few words! hehe I love it. Sheila July 15, 2013
Wow what a week.Thank you for all of your emails and support. I haven't gotten any packages yet, since the ZL's don't go to Edmonton very often. They went a couple of weeks ago, but I didn't think there was anything there yet. There might be something today, but that depends if they brought down the mail when they went on exchanges with the AP's. If not I might get it Thursday when we go up for follow-up training meeting. There are a lot of chances, but everything is subject to change. There have been a lot more trips to Edmonton than normal.
We had weekly planning today and were able to accomplish a lot. We decided that some of our investigators weren't really progressing so we had to cut some of them. We are pretty much starting over. It was a really good planning session. We then went with the Ellis' (tried to go with the Blanchards) to talk to Gail. We showed up at her house and felt really good about the whole situation. We were excited and thought that she would be one of the most golden investigators in the whole world. We knocked. She wasn't home. We have gone back many times and she either isn't home or won't answer. We are still trying pretty much everyday. We then went and we had dinner with the Miller's. We stopped by one of her friends down the street that we have talked to before. They are an older couple and his health is declining really quickly. She was a baptized member that went inactive and doesn't remember she was baptized. A little weird. We got to talk to her and decided that we are going over every Tuesday so we can share a little spiritual message with them. It will be a cool experience. We had dinner with the Millers and then went to meet with Sister Woodruff, the Relief Society President, to talk about some help that we would like with some of our potentials.
P.S. I will be sending a lot of pictures so it might be a couple of emails with pictures.
