Hey!I'm glad to hear that Dad and Grandpa got my Father's Day cards. Well it was sunny all this week! And today its POURING down rain ): at least we are not proselyting right now. Anyways, last Monday we went on the Cliff Walk and after that had lunch on the beach, so that was nice. I got just a little hint of paradise haha. Since it is summer and since Newport is a touristy area it has been very hard to find a potential or even a new investigator that lives here. Have had a few good experiences tracting, but nothing has come of it yet. Still have my head high, because the faithful members in Newport are coming out with us more often than usual. I think they even want to see some new faces in the chapel. Other than that we have been pretty successful in activating less-active members, that seemed to be working well for us this week. 3 less-active families came to church after we stopped by and visited with them. We are about to start a program in the ward to teach members how they can get their friends, acquaintances, etc to be investigators for the missionaries. Crossing my fingers that it starts a BLAZING FIRE. Your visit to Nauvoo sounds amazing, I can't say that I'm not jealous right now. But where are the pics of you and Aaron and the Nauvoo Temple? Just curious. The pictures that you posted are cool though. Yet again it sounds like many changes are being made on the ward and stake level.
