Dear Cruisers,

Sounds like the parents had quite the trip! How exciting!

We have been trying to keep Trisha and David (David is Barbie's brother) on track for baptism but it's proved difficult. It seems we ought to impress the importance of everything on them more.
We found investigators in the most fascinating ways this week! Walking hope a girl drives her car up to us and asks what we're doing. We tell her we teach people about Jesus and she gapes and says, "For real?" We confirmed this and she pointed out her home and told us to come visit. Her grandmother is not fond of us though so we will have to try and meet with her somewhere else if at all possible.

Yet another instance of walking we were approached by a couple also strolling and struck up a conversation.

I will having an exchange with Elder Wright this week, that should be fun. It is Elder Sleet's Birthday today, Elder Bunderson had his recently as well. By the way, did you also see the videos on the SD card in addition to the pictures?

We ate at the Locketts on Easter and after visited the Bishop and some of his family. They do this thing called 'moose'. It's delicious. This one was raspberry, but earlier they had chocolate moose that was fantastic.

I've been told that my letters seem to be shrinking week by week. I cannot deny this, yet I have a very difficult time trying to figure out how to solve this issue! I have spent a great deal of time trying to think of what else to put down and typically come up with nothing more than what I've already included in vivid, sweeping detail. Could always add more ostentatious verbatim, but that has no real substance! A 
Some major car problems
perplexing puzzle to be sure.

Ah well! I will strive to do better. Thank you Grandma for your letter and I hope everyone continues to enjoy life! Remember, the gospel is Good News! Be happy.
