What Did Erik Do That Day?

Erik’s Letter home from Aug 13, 2012 (Photo’s coming!)

So like I said in our email chat earlier, we have an investigator on a pretty solid baptismal date for Aug 25. We have to wait for him on a few things so that may take until the middle of September… But hopefully it doesn’t! We also have another investigator on date for Aug25 but that one is a little more flaky.

Yesterday at Ward Council, the bishop brought up the fact that in the past 6 months we’ve lost a ton of power families. All in all about 20 people. He told everyone that we all need to step up our game and re-build the ward. Every Presidency is now re-assigning home teachers to everyone and we’re placing a huge emphasis on easy missionary work. Stuff like inviting your neighbors and friends to ward activities, inviting them over to dinner etc.

Other than that, things have been pretty standard. We had 2 long meetings this week on Tuesday and Thursday. Each of them were from 9:00am to 4:00pm. We usually have one long meeting a month and I can do that, but 2 huge ones in the same week is tough. We always hit rush hour through construction on our way back to Howell to so we usually don’t get home until around 7:30PM. The meeting always runs over too so that doesn’t help. Still, we learned a lot of cool things to help us teach better. And training meetings have awesome food we don’t have to pay for so that is a plus :)
Well, I don’t have much more time so I guess I better. I’m attaching some pictures of our apartment so you can see my awesome district leader wall and just how nice our apartment is (we easily have the best in the mission; another reason why I want to stay). Also how hard the rain was pouring the day that the bottom floor apartments flooded.
ps: that storm brought in a tornado warning in Chelsea which is about 45 minutes away from us.
