November 5, 2012

Hello family!
Hope everyone had a great Halloween.  We had to spend Halloween inside, well, we worked til 6, and then came in and did the rest of our studies. Halloween was actually a really good day.  We ended up having 5 lessons that day.  We've been busy teaching, and finding new people to teach.  We've also been looking for less actives this week.  We also cover the singles branch in the stake, so we've been trying to make them a focus this last little bit.  We've been going out with members to look for less actives, and we've been trying to get referrals from them.  One day it will happen, we will just have to be persistent.
Other than it being Halloween, I feel like has been a pretty uneventful week.  We didn't have to go to transfer meeting, which means we get to stay together, but it also means that we had to plan lessons for Wednesday morning.  We've got a baptismal date with a 12 yr. old.  Her family (mom, brother, uncles, cousins) are all less active members, except for the few that are active.  She's really sweet, and really likes to learn, and likes to talk with us.  We also found a less active for our YSA branch, who wants to come back to church, and she's really neat.  Things have bene going really well.  It always seems like we spend so long knocking on doors where no one is home or driving around trying to find someone to teach, but when we get home for the night, and add all our lessons up, it usually turns out to be a pretty good day. 
This email seems to be pretty short, but I can't think of anything else that has really been going on.  We just keep looking for new people to teach, and helping the people we are teaching come to church, and keep their commitments!
Love you lots!
