I hope you guys had fun at Rocky Point! It hasn't cooled down here yet. In fact, we've had a bit of a heat wave; it's been in the 90s all week! Blechque. I am planning on going to the Stake Center to watch General Conference. I can't wait!!
George hasn't answered his door... One time we stopped by and his lights were on in the house, but then they turned off (a clear sign that somebody was home). He still didn't answer the door. Gah!
Kelly is doing well! She's very eccentric. I think that's a fitting word... She seemed to imply that she had (re)read the entire Book of Mormon in three days! We had a good lesson with her with a member present, which is always very helpful. We should be seeing her again soon!
Keep helping the missionaries! We love that kind of thing!
We had two dinners on Labor Day. We pulled through. On Tuesday we went on exchanges, so I was with Elder Serr, our District Leader. He was Elder Brunson's companion in the MTC! Cool guy. We went contacting in the valley (the rich part of our area) and saw a bunch of deer chillin' out max and relaxin' all cool in some people's front yards.
Elder Brunson and I had two opportunities to give priesthood blessings this week. I love to see the power of the priesthood work in people's lives.
At district meeting on Thursday, we got to know each other a little bit better. It was our first district meeting of the transfer, even though it's almost over. That was really fun. There's one question in our district that everyone has to take a stance on: Who would win in a fight, a grizzly bear or a silver-back gorilla? There is a correct answer.
On Friday we did some service at a thrift store called Arc. They have a ton of cool stuff there, and a lot of stuff that should be really expensive, but it's not! Anyway, we just helped them sort through their old clothes and make sure all was well with the clothes on the racks. It counts for service, I think because they do a lot to help the mentally disabled.
We had dinner scheduled for that night, and a less-active member called us up to see if we were free for dinner. Ahh! You can't say no when a less-active member invites you over for dinner! So we told her we could have dinner with her and her husband. The people we had dinner scheduled with called us that morning and told us they were just going to drop off a pizza at our house. Yay! We graciously accepted and refrigerated the pizza before going to our new dinner appointment. When you do what you can to help the people, the Lord will provide.
We had a couple of good lessons with investigators this week as well. We did a whole lot of contacting, but got no new investigators... Hopefully some seeds were planted!
I hope all is well with you and that you all choose the right! Don't forget to study the scriptures!
Oh yeah, per-duh! We Went to the temple on Wednesday!
I love going to the temple! We ate lunch afterwards at CiCi's Pizza, and all-you-can-eat buffet for $5.

A Thought from Mom:
"This is at the very heart of our sacred work—to feel a spiritual impression and be willing to follow it."
