Dear What Pumpkins,
By the flowing magical grace of Elder Despain he has seen fit to grant me an added moment to deliver unto you a more proper epistle.
We have just had a FABULOUS lesson with Rachel, our Catholic investigator. She is learning and praying earnestly to overcome her doubts, fears and questions. We help as best we can but are confident the lord will see her through the darkness.
Our other main investigator, a young lady named Brooke, just went to church in Florida and we will be seeing her tomorrow. I think I may have already mentioned her baptismal date being on my birthday.
We went to the Elder Zwick meeting where they announced the iPads and I saw the Orey's again! I'm sure you already know about it since she no doubt sent you all the pictures. Elder Zwick told on President Wakolo to the mission about his speeding, which was hilarious.
I mentioned we did a lot of walking this week and boy is that the case. Going home one night Elder Despain also decided we should try a short cut. Almost nine o clock, it was dark out and we went tromping through a trail through the trees. It turned out well, so no harm no foul I suppose.
We did not end up doing the dinner thing on campus, which was kind of a bummer. It seemed like a cool opportunity. We ended up meeting with Rachel at that time instead. So no loss.
One of the best parts was a lesson with a less active woman. Visiting with her and we feel she's warming up considerably! She came to church this week and had her baby blessed. The baby's name is Serenity and she's darling.
It's been an exhausting week.
