Well, it's been a week. The work has slowed down, because our investigators keep dropping us. That's not fun. But, we're going to work harder on getting the members involved in finding, because people are more receptive to us when their friends invite them to hear us. It's really the best way. There's no substitute.
Elder Kelly bought a guitar last p-day, even though I told him he might not be able to take it with it when he gets transferred. We've been making covers of Beatles' songs and applying them to missionary work. We usually just come up with them while we're in the car. No, we don't bring the guitar into the car, but we can come up with the lyrics there! One of them is a cover of "Girl."
Is there anybody going to listen to our story
All about the boy who chose to pray?
God the Father and His Son appeared in all Their Glory;
Returning truth to those who'd gone astray.
We haven't come up with the chorus yet, but we're working on it. We've also made some progress on "Hey Jew", "Dear Prudence" (where Prudence is the name of an investigator), "Revelation" (instead of "Revolution"), and "With the Help of my Friends (the Missionaries)". We also had something going on "We all Live in a Yellow Submarine", but I can't remember how it went.
There's not a whole lot to report on this week. We just keep trekkin'! I hope you (Mom and Dad) had fun in DC! And Mexico!
We went to a fireside last night with Matthew S. Holland, Elder Holland's son. He talked about the importance of reading the Book of Mormon. It was really powerful, and reaffirmed my conviction of the book's importance. Read it! Together, and individually! It's the best.
I love you all and hope you have an excellent week. Stay true and faithful!
A Thought from MOM:
I know you are an amazing young man, and I know you are an amazing missionary. I love you and you are in my thoughts and prayers constantly. Keep up the work, and the Lord will bless not only you, but those around you as well!
