Let's see, what else? Well church yesterday was pretty good. We were counting on having 10 investigators at sacrament meeting, but only 2 showed up. So that was a little disappointing. Waiting for investigators to show up to sacrament meeting is easily the most stressful and agonizing thing about missionary work haha. Not something I'll miss when I'm home haha. The affect it has on a persons spiritual progression is just huge! There's such a big difference in their progression during the week when they come to church. This week will be better though!
Umm, oh I don't know if you guys know this or not. But there is a cool tradition here in the Redlands CA mission for when a missionary goes home. Each transfer there is a Departing Devotional for all the missionaries who are going home. So the missionary get's to send out invitations to all the people he wants to come to the mission office for this devotional. Each missionary is given like 5 minutes to bear their testimony and share an experience where they've felt the Lords hand in the work. So it's pretty cool. You get to see all your favorite people one more time before you go home. Well, today in the mail I got the "Trunky Papers" as they are referred to. Basically just a bunch of invites to send out, and a preliminary itinerary for the trip home. Crazy stuff! But kind of exciting haha.
Glad to hear everything is going well at home! Yeah I sent that package with Elder Darro a long time ago haha. He tried to deliver it once a few weeks ago while you were all in Mississippi, but obviously, no one was home. Glad you got it though! The guy who gave it to you was Caleb Reber I would imagine. He is a great guy. I knew him pretty well at school before the mission too. There were actually quite a few people from PG that I went to school with out here. It's pretty cool!
Jim and Diane's new calling sounds awesome! 35 missions huh? That's pretty crazy. What day do they leave?
And that's fun that all my friends were at the house haha. Can't wait to see them again! Glad they are doing well! And I'm glad to hear Grandpa T is doing lot's better!
Well, I hope you all have a fantastic week! Love you all!
Love, Elder Wise
