The Work Continues Despite the Shoes

Dear Mom,

That invitation Sunday was a good idea for investigators.  I bet they were good talks.  So far I've had to give two talks in sacrament.  One was on the talk President Uchtdorf, "Lift Where you Stand." Which is an excellent talk by the way.  The other was on the Life of Christ.  They were really good talks.  The weirdest thing that happened to me this week was we were walking by a house and some guys came out after us.  They said the lady in the house needed a blessing.  She was raped the night before.  It was a good thing we were walking by.  I found a link in our genealogy that goes back to Adam!!!  I can't catch a break with my shoes.  The boots I bought to help with my feet tore apart while we were walking...

Dear Dad,
I'm feeling a little bit better, but I'm still really tired.  Everything is going good so far and the people we teach are receiving the lessons well.  We will be having 4 more baptisms in the next two weeks.  We have a huge teaching pool, like 25 people or so.  It is nuts!  I think we have 9 on date for baptisms.  I think this is the perfect place to teach because you are surrounded by good members everywhere and that influences people to meet with us.  Sometime it is just for financial assistance, but oh well.

So far my companion is doing good.  He is a little judgmental because I am not a strong, as fit, or my hairstyle is not what he thinks is cool, but most of the time we have a good time.  I am older than him by 6 months.  His birthday is the third.

  1. Sounds like Dakota is having a great time on his mission. Not sure why his shoes won't hold up for him!
