July 1st letter: Subject: Investigator Slurpee Finding

We had a pretty good week this week in terms of missionary work. Slurpee’s helped me find another prospective investigator!

This week was a pretty busy week for us which was nice for a change. We had Zone Conference on Wednesday and that was a blast. The whole conference was focused on converting ourselves before we can help convert someone else.

Ziggy Ansah is Coming to the Mission‏–letter from Erik May 20, 2013

Happy birthday dad!  This morning there was an article in the paper talking about the most violent/dangerous part of Flint. It’s in my area on the South East side.
