January 25.2010


We blessed a less active's home and gave a sister a blessing this week. I wore just a short sleeve shirt for like 2 days this last week. It was like high 50s low 60s.

So the high light of my week was on Friday had about 7 less actives in the southernmost part of our area so we chose to go contact all those members. The first address took us right next to SafeCo field (Mariners stadium) we walked up the block across from the field and realized we were on the wrong side of the street. We look across and all there was was SafeCo. We figured it was a wrong number but decided to check it out anyways. We walked into the team store and asked if a Richard Griffin worked there. They gave us a funny look and said he was the Mariners trainer! We were sent to the executive offices and the receptionist called him up. He was in a training session and was really busy. He said he hadn't had contact with missionaries in 20 years, but was sorry he missed us. We left a note with our number on it. As we were leaving the receptionist gave us a backpack. Its supposed to look like the back of a jersey and says Griffey on it with the number 24. WAY LEGIT!!!

After that we had to penetrate a coast guard base trying to find one of our less actives. That one was a little trickier. We couldnt get a hold ocouldn'tbut the experience was fun.
Its taken a little bit but Elder Bunton and I get along good now. We butted heads a lot before.

We're working on Robecca's car tonight so she can drive herself to church which will help alot. I'm trying to learn little phrases from her tribal language. Right now i know hello and goodbye. Elder Bunton is trying to learn chinese too. One of his investigators in his last areas gave him a book with a cd to learn it. And lets just say the garbage disposal is a good spot for it right now.

So heres the update on our less actives.
total members in our area: 428
active members in our area: 108
number of people weve contacted: somewhere around 75
how many more people to contact: who knows

Oh one of the less actives is bipolar/paranoid and the first time we met him I feared for my life. Another one of those satan experiences. But last night he was totally fine so we'll see what happens there.

Zone conference is this week. I'm way excited for that.

My new favorite scripture:
D&C 75:2-5
