Dear Family and FriendsThis has been another week of Crazyness here in Lincoln Nebraska so to start from where I left off Monday we saw Marvin and that was good he is making plans to start coming back to church he is trying to see if he can work second shift so he can guarantee Sundays the good news is it sounds like it is going to happen
Wednesday we did our studies and then we got our New PHONE!!!! ya so we spent a little bit setting that up then we went to the people city mission and did some service and most everyone behaved they didn't destroy anything, we went on a team up with Joseph Carlson and that was good we told him he didn't have to fellowship the sisters investigator even though they were trying to set that up (she is 14 and 6foot 4inches) and Joseph is 18 and 6 foot something but ya still shorter than this girl so it was funny because Joseph was freaking out and we were like really if you feel uncomfortable just say know she won't even be date able to you when you get home so let the sisters get the YW involved and all will be good. but after that we had to go to Columbus to pick up the Elders there (1.5hr car ride) because they got in an accident and would need a ride to District meeting so we stayed the night there.
Thursday we drove down from Columbus changed from pjs to suits and had district meeting we went to Super Taco for lunch and that was good we got our stuff unpacked after that we had dinner with the smith Family and I discovered That I am related to sister Smith she is a descendant of Archibald Gardner so that was crazy I have a 3rd cousin in the ward! ya our plans fell through that night so that was great
Friday we went Council Bluffs and I got time to study and we stopped by the mission office to pick up supplies on our way back I was so glad I was wearing a short sleeved shirt it was super nice weather we had one lesson with Wilfredo and that was a Joke he said he didn't read so we read with him but he really had read and was setting up a trap for us and so we were not happy but we weren't mad but it was an awful lesson we will probably have to drop him.
Saturday we had a good lesson with Maria Ninninger and that was good we read the family a proclamation to the world with her and she has had a lot of family problems and so this helped give her a little comfort (we hope) and we had Miguel (an investigator) walking down the street away from his apartment at the time of his appointment so we are kind of sad about that he is probably getting dropped toSunday we had some good meetings a small Spanish turn out but we didn't get any lessons but we did get the Quirino Family's new address they moved into the pioneer ward which is sweet they are only one minute from our house. I love you all have a good week
