Sep. 30, 2014

Aaaand... well, last week was relatively uneventful, sadly. I want investigators, but we've been having some hard times finding them. We did find some Saturday and Sunday night, but because of our Zone Conference yesterday, we weren't able to really get to our appointments. Therefore, we're going to be looking to recover them and gain more, because this week it's "2 for 1" as my Zone Leader said - we have the opportunity to get an investigator to have 2 church attendances on Saturday and Sunday because of General Conference.

Anyway, that's good that Andrew's left arm was broken (His little brother had a bike accident the week before). I don't know how I could live if I break my right arm - although I suppose I could finally have a reason to be ambidextrous. I also crashed on my bike on Saturday - there was a small gap between some grates in the road, and I was super deep in thought. Before I know it, I'm flying forward as my bike tire gets wedged into the gap, completely stopping the bike but not me. I was just fine - just a little sore in the right arm and scraped up. That makes three crashes.

I've been getting some strong hints that I'll be leaving Maravatio next change. I don't want to go, but that's how I feel it's going to happen. So, I've got to get the area very well prepared - my companion needs to know the area, we need to have plenty of investigators, and so forth. Everything needs to be ready for the time I go. And if I stay, then it's all good - I can continue working as normal.

And we're going to baptize this week, so I'm really happy about that. I didn't write yesterday because we had a Zone Conference in a city two hours away from here and we didn't get back until 7:00 yesterday. So... yes.

I also crashed on my bike.





And so ends this email.
