Week 7

How are you doing?  Hey dad, thank you for the sports updates. I really like those. It sounds like the baseball team is doing a lot better so that's good.  So my headaches are not getting much better, but I'm not too worried about them. I will be fine. My allergies are starting to kick in. The last two days have been sunny, which has been a change because it was snowy and rainy most of last week.  That's cool that you got to talk to Forrest yesterday. We do a lot of tracting and some teaching. We like to IQ, we are doing a lot of finding, which is good. I had a fun experience with tracting an indoor apartment complex.  We decided to do that because it was snowing like crazy, and the first door we knocked, this guy yelled at us for soliciting and told us to leave. He was not nice. We could have argued with him because we aren't solicitors. They couldn't do anything to us, plus there was no sign. But we decided to choose the right and not argue. We told him to have a nice day and left. So that was fun. -- I haven't heard about Noah yet, but yes, it is leukemia that he has.  Kathy may be moving to Louisville because that's where her husband works, but we are still working with her and proceeding normally. We haven't been able to meet her husband yet, but he seams to be ok with her getting baptized now, so that's good. We are trying to get back in contact with Greg. We didn't get to teach him this week, but we did find a less active who is really excited about church. She just doesn't have a ride and she has like 6 grandkids and 3 of them are accountable and want to be baptized, so I'm way excited for that. We are going back tomorrow to talk with them a little more.  I haven't had to give a talk or a lesson yet, but we did teach the primary kids about the priesthood for like 5 minutes.  We had our first dinner appointment with President McGwire (the branch president). We had kiesh and potatoes and salad. It was way good and we have another dinner appointment on Wednesday. 
     So our phone didn't recognize daylight savings, so we woke up an hour late. We didn't miss anything except that we should have been awake.  Oh well.  I love the area, the branch is good but we are trying to get the members more excited about missionary work. Me and Elder Tolman get along great! We have a lot of fun and we work well together.  It was cool to see Chaz.  Will you send my allergy medication?  because I can feel it coming. Well, that's all I have for this week.  Love you so much!  Have a great week!
