Matt 7-19-10

Well this week has just been awesome!! We were able to teach like 15 lessons and are working with a ton of people. So we met on Tuesday with our investigator named Orlando and gave him a baptismal date for August 7th but he didn't come to church yesterday so we are going to have to move it, but we are super excited!! We were also able to go out on splits twice this week and that was awesome because we met a new investigator as a referral from someone in the ward. His name is Justin and he is about 30 we are teaching him and his mom I don't know her name though haha. Then we also got a couple of referrals from the ward and from the church. On Friday we did some service for a widow in the first ward and we cut down some trees and tore out a stump. I’m glad that I have had experience using a bow saw. And many other tools. With the stump it was super rotten so we dug around it and just pushed it over. It was awesome!! I wish I had my camera but I left it at the apartment.

Well it sounds like you had a very fun week end and that going to the cabin was a hit. Do you remember when we had neighborhood day up there it was so fun!! The cabin is always a fun spot to be in in the summer and especially if you have a campfire and sing our favorite song haha :) Wow! boating and fishing for dad this week he is really suffering haha. Did everyone try to slalom again?

Hayden bill is in the mtc!! That’s crazy I will definitely write him in the mtc he is going to love it. It is so nice to be surrounded by the gospel all the time. And the spirit is so strong there nothing can compare to it.

Wow you are going to make a great ward missionary and I hope that you get to work a lot with the full time elders. I know it’s always great to work with the members of the wards here. Well this week has been just awesome!

oh I almost forgot to tell you we were tracing (knocking doors) and we met this guy who was super grumpy and he said that we were lucky that we weren’t Jehovah witness cause he would have shot us... then he showed us his gun... in my head I thought what caliber is that hahaha :) It wasn't scary just kind of crazy :) we also found out how to make cake in the microwave! You just put mix in a bowl then add milk just a little (you want it to look like pancake mix) then put it in the microwave for 30 sec to 1min and its awesome!! Dave would love this!!

Well hope you have a wonderful week love you tons!!

Love Elder Matt Christensen
