Nov 15, 2010

Have had a somewhat busy week. The visa waiters got here last week. Elder Moore and Elder Lund. Elder Moore is from Utah and Elder Lund is from the Seattle area. They are learning to speak Portugese and when they get their visas they will be serving in Brazil. The wards are excited to have four missionaries here for the time being. Each ward would like to have their own set.
Things have been a bit hectic though. We were supposed to get some bunk beds but I guess the mission ran out so we have mattresses and luggage sprawled across our small apartment.
We also tracted into Homer Hickham (October Sky) last week as well. We talked with him for a few mintues on his doorstep. He is a nice guy.
We have still been tracting alot. Haven't found anyone yet but they're out there somewhere.
The weather has been mostly in the upper 70's except for yesterday and today. A bit colder and rainy.
Love you all!!!

November 8, 2010

This past week has been a crazy week.
We had Zone Leader Council this past Tuesday. We were informed that we would be in charge of a two hour training the next day on Wednesday at zone conference. We did not get home until 5:00 and had too many things to get done before we got in for the night so we didn't have much time to prepare anything. We worked on it a bit when we got home and then tied up any loose ends in the morning. The training went well.
We had a team up on Friday through Saturday and then two investigators came to church, Ashley and Ericka. They are both progressing alot and I am sure that Ericka will be baptized before I leave.
We also found out that we are getting two new missionaries into the area. They are waiting to get their visas so they can go to their assigned missions. We will have four missionaries living in our apartment, two who are straight out of the MTC. We have been tracting non-stop and so that is what we are going to be having the two new missionaries be doing.
Hope everyone is doing great!!!

I am back in the Weatherly and Byrd spring wards in Huntsville. It is great to be back here and see so many familiar faces. I am serving with Elder Harrison from Pleasant Grove, Utah. He likes to tract and thats about it so that is all we have been doing.
Nothing new to report really though. I hope everyone is doing great. Love ya.
