Dear Mom and Dad and Family,
It is my first Fast Sunday here and church doesn't start until 1pm. I am hungry. How are you guys doing? Are Roland and Rachel excited for school to be out? How are Roger and Rebekah? And Russell, Crystelle and the kids? We have a new investigator, his name is B and is in his late 40's. He has a young daughter named M. He has a testimony of Christ and wants to come closer but isn't sure how. We invited him to read the Book of Mormon and pray to knowof it's truthfulness.
President Brown also set new standards ofr the mission. No zone gatherings on preperation day(now referred to as pday), districts have to get permission to gather. We aren't allowed to use the car on pday except to shop or email. (Yes, we are in a brand new Jeep Compass with less than 2000 miles). We aren't allowed to email in the same building as another companionship and last of all music is restricted to only what you would hear in sacrament meeting. So not even the Mormon Tabernacle Choir because all their CD have an orchestra. Elder Hanson says emergency transfer are going to skyrocket so we might not be a companionship as long as we thought we would, but that is soley predicated on whether or not President Brown sees me as an (exceptional I think, I can't read his writing) missionary.
The work is not just physically draining but spiritually draining also,never have I exercised the spirit this much So I have something else that has to get in shape now.
PS I got your package with the fruit rollups.
PPS Happy May the Fourth
