Sept. 9, 2013

It's kind of becoming fall.  I think it will be really pretty when it does.  I know fall is coming because I'm starting to miss Cox Farms.  It's too bad Luke won't be working there this year, but he'll probably find a better job somewhere else.

Those cookies you sent were super delicious!  A testament to that being that very soon after their arrival, a horde of hungry missionaries flocked down and ate them all.  Missionaries are like cookie vultures....

I've been telling all the homeschool families I meet about the LDSHE website!  There's actually a lot here in Corvallis, and they do co-ops!  They're actually going to do a mission prep class for the homeschool youth, and they may involve us!  So that'll be fun.

So are you still sending out my e-mails to people?  Or just uploading them on my blog?  I may prefer the latter, cuz then you can cut out the pointless stuff.  But make sure you let the people who were on the list know!  Dana said she wasn't getting e-mails anymore.

This week we were able to meet with a less-active woman we had been trying to get in contact with for a while.  We were planning on sharing a mormon message on the Book of Mormon, but she didn't have a dvd player!  I looked down the couch at my three-week companion, and the 17 yr. old priest who came with us, and knew that the fate of that lesson rested on my shoulders.  Actually, this type of scenario is a very common occurrence that I just felt like dramatizing.  But I was able to pull a pretty decent half hour lesson out of my nonexistent hat.  I don't share this to brag about my skills, but just to say, it's amazing what a mission does for you!  Until I started training Elder Boswell, I didn't know how far I had come.  I never would have been able to do that before!  So we still talked about the Book of Mormon, then we gave her 9 or so yr. old daughter a copy.  She was so excited, she kept asking her mom to read it with her.

Aside from that, the week was pretty good.  We weren't able to teach Mandy, but we got in contact with her, met her husband, and we have an appointment for next week.  We got to go to the temple again this week!

Love you!
Elder Georgia
