As you can imagine, the 4th of July was a little different as a missionary, but we still had the ability to eat some good barbecue food and sang some patriotic songs. Good memories of hamburgers and watermelon and the sweet smell of chlorine passed through my mind. I'm glad that our ward functions well enough to assign home teachers to investigators. Please give a vicarious high five to the priesthood leadership in the Montecito ward for that one. President Anderson is here and we'll be meeting him tomorrow at zone conference. I know you don't really know any of the people that I write about, so it may not be of any importance to you, but I don't really spend any time thinking about other things so I guess I don't care. This week one of our investigators taught us a lesson. Sometimes missionaries say that meaning "we learned something." What I mean is we assigned her to teach the lesson during family home evening and she did. It was on the importance of commitment. She would be baptized already but she could have a baby at any moment so we might have to wait a while. Question for the RM's in the group. What ideas do you have to offer to help a companionship of two fantastic missionaries that just don't get along? It is an enigma. I'll be looking forward to hearing from you.
