October 28, 2013 - Letter Home

Dear Recipients,

The branch here is practicing for the primary program as well.  The Branch Presidency said it is the most attended thing the branch does all year.

I let him know that for Primary we are spending the two hours together and working on the Primary Program which will be on November 10th.

In answer to questions about the car and how that works.  The car is handed off to different companionship's in a car share.  Sometimes there are multiple cars in the car share.  For example, four pairs of missionaries may have three cars.  Thus, three of four weeks a companionship will have a car, and one bike week.

As for tracting, it is non-existent.  We do what they call a Spiritual Harvest, where we approach doors only if we feel prompted to or decide to approach and ask if we can leave a prayer with the Savior's peace and blessing on a home.  I have not done much Harvesting though.  We try hard to avoid that and find people thorough members.  Investigators and less active members that come through personal connections are more receptive.

We are expected to exercise the half hour after we wake up.  I'm not the best at keeping up on it, but when I do I just do simple things.  Sit ups, push-ups, we have a pull-up bar (which I don't use).

I gave a talk in sacrament meeting yesterday about the importance of preaching the gospel and that one should not procrastinate a mission if you are able to serve one.

Thank you all for your love and remember to have the pure love of Christ.  Not only to others but have A pure love of CHRIST, loving Him above all else.

- Elder North
