Mission time is so crazy! I can't believe, Elder Mitchell Schroeder has been out six months. It has gone by so fast & yet it also seems he has been gone forever! This is what I said to Mitch in his letter this week, this is his response & what he has been up to.
Yeah mission time is way crazy 1 day it feels like I've been here an eternity another it doesn´t. When I look at how much time has passed I'm like wow! Then I look at how much I have left and yeah you can guess what I think. haha. I have been asked if I have met Sister Dumas but I haven´t. I know she went to bonneville, but I never knew her. Parabens on the straight A´s girls, that is always good! The amazing race sounds awesome I'm way bummed I can´t watch it. oh well.
This week has been great. We've found a lot of new people to talk to, but none of them give us the right address or phone number. Elder Brown & I think that if people took as much effort in hearing what we´ve got ot say as they do lieing to us this entire country would be lds. They are really good at telling us the right street, but the address doesn´t exist on that street, so i guess it doesn´t even necessarily mean it´s the right street now does it...
We´ve got 1 investgator right now name Danielson. He's from Cape verde and really wants to get baptized the only problem is that he doesn´t know for sure if he wants to marry his girlfriend Catia who just had a baby( named Clara) and whom he currently lives with. He´s marked for sunday, but we haven'tt been able to get in contact with him and are pretty sure he´s not married yet. We are going by his house tommarrow so we´ll work it all out then.
We had district conference this week and a member of the 70 and President Fluckiger gave talks. I don´t remember the 70´s name so I can´t tell you sorry. District conference is just like stake conference except we´re currently not big enough to be a stake so we´re a district. We are next up to become a stake we just need 24 more M priesthood holders. Finding men is a bit difficult though, they are more closed then women. So I can´t think of anything else this week really, no funny rejections, no one tried to rob us. Oh, we did have a guy named Ishameal do something funny. We rung his button for his apartment and when we said we are disciples of Jesus Christ and we are here to say a prayer to bless you and your family. He promptly said "you´re lieing to me" and hung up. We didn´t know how to react, but then he actally came to the entrance of the apartment building and when we told him the same thing he said ok. So hopefully he works out.
We had divisions this week. I went to Faro A the other area in this city with Elder Fernades and taught 2 really awesome lessons with 2 of their investigators. That was fun! Then, on Friday after zone conference. We had a division with the Assistant to the President.. I went with Elder Palmer and we found this 16 year old kid named Rui who´s way sick, we are going to try an pass him today. Elder Palmer was my district leader for my 1st 2 transfers, don´t know if you remember me telling you about him.
Well that´s all, Love you mom, Have a great week!
We love him, we are so proud of him, & miss him so much!
