September, 9 2013

Dear Family and Friends,

I'm glad to hear everyone had a great time at Grandma's on Labor Day. I was definitely thinking about you guys and knew you would be having a good time. It was kind of weird missing it, I'm not gonna lie, I was a little jealous! We had a up and down week to say the least. We had 2 of our baptismal dates drop. Jerry was really appreciative of everything we've done for him and the great love and support the ward has shown him. But he's going to be moving soon, so the probability of his baptism happening before he moves is kind of unlikely, but we're praying for the best. Jerry is literally the coolest, most sincere, kind person I've taught so far on my mission. 

Anne also dropped her baptism which was suppose to happen this weekend. But she said its not permanent. She just wants to make sure this is something she wants to do which is perfectly fine. We don't want to rush her or anything. Anne only has one foot and her other foot is starting to swell up really big and she's afraid of losing it and she was in a lot of pain. We had an opportunity to give her a blessing and I think she was really touched by the spirit. 

Elaine though is doing great. She had the Seventh Day Adventists church call he, trying to reactivate her and try to get her to come back to church. She told them to remove her records from their church and that she was investigating with the Mormon religion. I'm really proud of her for her decision and she's continuing to come to church and we always have great lessons with her. Her baptism is scheduled for September 28th.

Dennis is also continuing to do great and hasn't had any set backs. We're starting to meet with him more and more often as we're getting closer to his baptism. He's just as solid as ever. We're really excited for him. We even picked up one of Dennis' friends as a new investigator this past week. He's not even a member and he's already doing missionary week.

We're going to go golfing today with some other missionaries and we get to go for free which is pretty sweet! Transfer calls will be coming this Sunday and I'll probably be getting a new companion so it will be exciting to see who I get. 

Just in case anyone plans on sending me anything. Send it to the mission office because I don't know our new address and we will be moving out soon to a different members house in our ward.

Thanks for everything and for you love and support. I love you guys.
