Julyl 23, 2012

Well, things are going good here in Galveston.
We've got a couple of really good investigators right now.  Although we found out today that our "Sunday miracle" is moving to Boston.  So we'll try to get the missionaries up there to teach her.   But we had some more Sunday miracles yesterday.  We finally got to teach an investigator from the English area that had been out of town for the past few weeks or so.  We had a really good lesson with him yesterday.  He remembered a lot of what the sisters had taught him over two months ago.  Then, we went to teach an investigator that the elders had been teaching, until he moved into our area.  We've been trying to sit down and teach him, and we had taught one lesson to his friend,  but his roommate decided to sit in on the lesson as well.  So our teaching pool about doubled yesterday!
It has been pretty hot and humid down here.  The only upside is that there is almost always a breeze in Galveston.  And we've had a hard time finding people this week.  There aren't a lot of people outside, and there aren't a lot of people home when we knock doors.  I think there are a lot of homes in our area that are beach homes or vacation rentals, so a lot of those people aren't interested.  And the two places where people congregate here are the two places we can't go: the beach, and the cruise terminal.  But we will keep on looking for people. 
Our zone conference with Pres. Ashton last week was really good!  He basically picked up where Pres. Saylin left off, and then taught us the next step to being better missionaries, and how to better study the scriptures.  It was really cool!  Then we got to say hello, and introduce ourselves to him and Sis. Ashton.  Tomorrow we will have our first interviews with him.  There haven't really been too many changes yet.  But I'm sure that some are on their way!
We haven't done much more than bike around, talk to people, and try to find some lessons.  We're going through a bunch of former investigators,  trying to go to places that we don't usually go in our area, but we mostly just hang out on bikes in the sun.
Well....I can't think of any thing else to say...It's been a kinda slow week.
Love you lots!
