One Year Gone...

Whoa, time is just flying by!  I can't believe it's been a whole year!  CRAY-CRAY!  This week was pretty bomb though. Let me tell ya.  I guess the reason it turned out so well was because of church yesterday! We had 9 investigators there!  It was truly a miracle.  Because of the special meeting, we had church at the stake center which is pretty far away, so we figured it might be kinda hard to get everybody over there.  The majority of our investigators are youth, or don't have cars.  So that's a bummer.  But everything worked out and we had a whole bunch of members help with giving rides and we were able to get everyone there!  It was awesome!

And the special meeting was because the stake has reorganized all the ward boundaries!  As a result of this however, Elder Urry and I no longer live in the Bloomington ward boundaries, and so we might be switching to a different ward.  The Colton ward.  We won't know for sure though until tomorrow.  

Let's see, what else happened??  Umm, oh we had MLC last week! It was pretty good!  We learned a lot of really cool things.  It was fun because normally in these meetings, the President covers a lot of things about rules, and other nuts'n'bolts type stuff.  But in this last meeting we were able to dive more into doctrine and stuff! We talked a lot about conversion and how our investigators can become more converted if we as missionaries are converted.  We also talked a lot about the Book of Mormon.  It's so cool!  There is no way that the book of mormon isn't true.  Just sayin.  :)

This is kinda cool too.  The Mission President has allowed us an extra 30 minutes of companion study in the mornings! This is to be used to watch the District 1 DVD's which are all about planning.  For the last several months there has been a big push on planning and how to plan correctly and the District DVD's help so much!  So we are stoked about that! 

I'm so glad to hear that the baptism went well and everything!!  Congrats lucie!! :) I'm so proud of you! It sounded so fun!! 

I got all the packages this week!  Thank you so much!!  They were perfect!  We ended up going out to eat the next day.  Cause hump day was the day we had MLC so there wasn't much time.  It was delicious! Thanks so much! 

Wow!! That story about that girl is incredible! 
Well, I'm just about out of time.  I hope you all have an amazing week!!  I love you all!! This church is true and being a missionary is the best!

Love, Elder Wise
