Sept 3, 2012

Hey mom,
  The past week has been good. We have 8 people with a baptismal date now and several new investigators we should pick up this week. There's still tons of potentials here. All 15 bishops in the stake were asked by our amazing stake president to know and meet every single person in their ward. In effect to have every bed accounted for, and to compile a list of every non-member in each ward. They'll be giving that to us in the next week or two. That is going to help an immeasurable amount. We're really excited about that and it's doable because of the size of the college. Lots to do. We're finally gonna get to go fishing next monday. I really love this area a lot, i'm gonna miss it like crazy. We know everyone and that makes it loads of fun. I'm trying to teach Elder Larsen how to best work with the members cause that's where the true strength and success comes from in our mission and there's always a certain level of fun that comes from that. The biggest challenge for missionaries is knowing when you're engaged in a productive activity verses wasting time. If you're being a disciple or a dude. Like going to ward family home evenings on monday nights. Alot of missionaries would say that's a waste of time or that it's just hanging out but i'm trying to teach elder Larsen that there's a fine line between the two. You can go and build confidence in the members but you have to recognize what activities are appropriate there and how long to stay and such. Anyways, he's picking it up and has alot of common sense and i'm really happy about that :)
