July 24, 2017: Email for Mom

I think you mentioned about your poetry book a few emails back. I thought it was pretty cool that you and Nathan are designing the cover. Did you get a font design software to make your font?

We had a mission-wide “all bike week” this past week and I don't think I've been sweatier in my life. One day the humidity was way up and the actual temperature was 107 Fahrenheit. We probably would've biked it even without the special occasion because of the fact that it's hard to talk to people on the street when you're in a car. The last few transfers we've pretty well kept to the bikes.

Anyway, the reason I brought that up was because there were some members in some areas concerned about the missionaries’ health and contacted President Mansell. I'm pretty sure that from that day forward he was out on the bikes with a different companionship each day of the week and taught some lessons. He went with our zone leaders and randomly got into a pickup game of basketball. Pretty much the best mission president ever.

One of our newest investigators asked us if we could organize a ride for her to come to church before we even invited her! She's not the best reader, she said, but she feels the Spirit well and knows she feels it when we teach.

We also had a couple that came into church yesterday that said they were looking for a Seventh-day Adventist Church. They said his grandmother was one in Missouri and recommended they try it here. Not sure if they were confused as to his grandma’s church or if he thought we were Seventh-day, but in any case they decided they liked our church and are coming back next week. Miracles are happening in Duncan!

Love you, Mom!
