Sept 28th

 It was just business as usual today.  Like usual, all of our appointments fell through this morning and nobody answered their doors while we were tracting.  It rained all day until around 5.  We got so soaking wet!  Tracting in the rain and biking in the rain was even worse.  My pants . . . → Read More: Dear Family…..from Erik Sept 28th-30th
