Hello Everybodeeee!

It was great hearing from everyone. Always is!

This week nothing terribly exciting. We did lots of tracting because we are trying to find people to teach. It's interesting because area is pretty much the same area as Farmington.  We did find a guy that is seemed genuinely  interested. We have an appointment with him on Tuesday. Should be good.  He’s in his mid/late 30’s. Stay tuned.

We are also getting our iPads on Tuesday. We have some 3 hour meeting with president and maybe some other people. Stay tuned.

We did have a really good lesson with a family last week! The wife is having some health problems so her friend who lives out of state and is LDS, asked her if she would like a priesthood blessing. She agreed so the Elders went over a few weeks ago to do that. Anyway, we go back and introduced ourselves and we ended up talking to them for a while. Talking about their snakes, their lizards, their cat, that sort of thing. They have a boa constrictor  and some lizard thing that is native to Australia so they made a connection with Sis. Newman. I can see some progression. They offered to feed us dinner next week! Always a good sign. Stay tuned.

Sis Newman and I taught District Meeting this week. It was on "Our Purpose". We showed that clip of Elder Rasband at conference when he talked about the process of how missionaries are assigned to their specific missions. That's a good talk.

This is the video that Sis. Magnusson showed at her District Meeting and is well worth watching.  It explaines the process of how missionaries are assigned to their area of service. You can see the different areas of the world where Sis. Magnusson's family has served by clicking here and scrolling to the bottom of the post. 
We went to the Relief Society presidency meeting to talk about the Ward Mission Process. This ward doesn't really know how it works but between us and the elders hopefully we can see it implemented. When it is put into gear I know it can really be effective. Farmington ward did a good job with it.

 Okay folks, sorry this is a short email. Pretty slow week. But that's okay. I'm learning more and more, even when it doesn't seem like you are doing anything as a missionary, you are. Just sometimes you can't see it till later.
