Less-active to Investigator

Wuzz good?

Life here in Avenel, Iselin, Colonia, Fords, Edison, Metuchen, Keasbey, Perth Amboy, Hope Lawn, Sewaren, Woodbridge, Port Reading, and Carteret by Staten Island is good.

We finally helped a less-active member become an investigator of the Church!  She had thought her entire life that she was baptized when she was young.  I guess she was too young to remember that she was actually not.  Her records are nowhere to be found, neither the witnesses to the baptism.  She will be baptized in August, hopefully more than just because she likes the elders!

Elder Hunt is a sickly fellow.  He has vomited around four times this past week, received a bloody nose twice, and stayed at the apartment to nap 7 times.  His body is rebelling.

My district is awesome.  Hermana Schwendiman and Hermana Jarman enjoy being companions to one another.  Los Elderes Sumsion and Lopez are as well.  They have tough areas in Short Hills, where not many Hispanics reside, but they work diligently.

Our zone had the privilege of meeting President and Sister Taggart personally today during interviews, and they are awesome.  They are definitely green still, meaning that they are adjusting to missionary life.  But what a wonderful couple!  They do things differently from the Jeppsons.  Their main focus will be using the media to find new investigators.

Also, the missionaries in our zone performed musical numbers and skits for the Primary in the Scotch Plains Stake.  Those kids are cute.  They are ready to go on missions.

I went on a couple of exchanges to the Scotch Plains First Ward, and bonded with their ward mission leader.  They just baptized Diego yesterday!  The Holy Ghost's influence penetrated my heart as he was immersed in the water and his nonmember mom smiled and cried.  Then he bore his testimony and everyone but me cried.  Actually, I was the only one crying.  But don't tell anyone.

That's pretty much it.  I apologize for not writing you more often.  Preparation days here are busy.

Take luck, good care.  See you in two.
