Aug 5


Hopefully we have 4 baptisms this month.  We have one this Saturday and one on August 31st scheduled.  There are two more we are trying to schedule for August 17th or 24th.  We got two new investigators this week. One is from Germany who has been in the states for 7 years.  Still has an accent.  :)  We teach people who's native languages are English, Spanish, German, Japanese, Afrikaans, and a Native American dialect.  Pretty sweet eh?  The other new investigator is a guy in his late 60s I think.  He has no religious background so we have to explain everything.  Brother Crist. His wife of 3 weeks is a member who is not pushing, but they both come to church every week anyways.  :)  Did lesson 1 and gave him some DVDs to recap the restoration and Christ's life.  He didn't even know any of the miracles Christ performed while on the earth.  :O  Sad day.  Hasn't read the Bible yet, but will start reading the Book of Mormon.  :)  

Last Monday we saw people present their goats for 4H.  We even got to pet a couple of them.  Pretty funny.  Their fair is so tiny.  Lasted 5 days and had lawnmower races.  :)  Then we met up with the rest of the missionaries from our zone a church building and played slaughter ball.  Pretty much an ultimate dodgeball.  We all run willy-nilly in the gym.  The person with the ball can only take three steps before they have to throw it.  Some run three steps, throw the ball up against the wall and run to catch it and keep doing that to cover more ground.  When you get hit you sit down.  Once your down you can touch the people running by so they are out.  Once the person who got you out is out you are back in.  It keeps going like that until one person has got everyone else out.  One game lasted over an hour.  Lots of fun.  :)  

Love you lots and lots and lots and lots...
