May 30th

Well Elder P goes home tomorrow well goes to the mission home tomorrow but flies out on Wednesday night and gets home on Thursday. My new companions name is Elder Willliams don't know anything else
really about him. This week has been really good and really tiring we have been able to have two awesome lessons with Steve and he was at church Sunday, and he is just doing awesome when we meet with him it's more like he is teaching himself and we are just clarifying for him on a few things. His biggest question he has had so far is about the Sabbath being moved from the Jewish Sabbath which is Saturday to Sunday which we now use.  So today we had to go to the mission home anyway for Elder P's departing interview so I asked president for some scripture references about it and so that was good. Monday we spent most of the day running around getting souvenirs for Elder P and his family  then in the evening we had dinner with a cool family. Then on Tuesday mostly did finding and some visits. On Wednesday we had a really good lesson with Steve and also stopped by
some less actives. On Thursday we also had a lesson with Steve and a lesson with a Sikh (seek)  guy and it went okay but his friends were there and we pressuring him a little bit it felt like. Then on Friday it was supposed to be a really busy day with some potentials but none of them showed up. But then we had dinner and a lesson with one of our part member families from Poland and man that was the biggest meal I have ever eaten. A whole plate full of boiled potatoes sliced with some cream of mushroom sauce and then to breaded and fried pieces of pork. I was so full and could burst the she brought out the ice cream. But we had a good lesson and it was really cool and they were at church Sunday as well. On Saturday we had a slower day because Elder P had the interview today and because he didn't want to pack on Sunday we spent a good portion of it getting him last minute things and him saying some good byes to people that wouldn't be to church and him packing. But we also did a few stop byes and met a cool less active guy that he doesn't come out to church mostly because of a medical condition. Sunday it was really cool almost everyone we invited came to church we had Steve, our part member family, and three less actives at church it was probably the best turn out of my entire mission. And it was fast and testimony meeting for us here because next week we have a cool tri stake conference with Elder Oaks so it should be really cool. I hope I get a chance to shake his hand because then it will make it my third apostle on my mission that I have met. But with it being a tri stake thing most likely not. This week is going to be interesting and maybe a bit slow because Steve is on holiday this week and won't be back till Sunday just in time for the conference. I think this week we will mostly be stopping by less actives and trying to get our ward list under control. And inviting everyone to the weekly activities that we are going to start holding at the chapel.

Love you guys and thanks for your support
