October 19, 2015 - In which we start the last week of this transfer

Dear family,

Last week went pretty well! I'll need to give you a pretty fast rundown.

We weren't able to meet with J last week but he was at church and we are planning on going to read the Book of Mormon with him later tonight. We've been thinking a lot about how we can lighten his family's load and we had the idea to go and read the scriptures with them when they'd normally be reading a couple of days a week. I'm not certain how that will go, but it should at least help that we'll be in more contact with them!

Sister D continues to do pretty well. We had a fine meeting last week where we talked about temples. She wants to go there again and seemed intrigued by the idea of renewing her temple recommend even if she doesn't have a way to get to the temple any time soon. She didn't come to church last week but is still averaging every other week pretty solidly.

We're starting to work more with another less-active member, D, with whom we've worked in the past. He's gone out of his way to meet with us lately and committed to come to church next Sunday! That'll be the first time in quite a while.

We had a little hiccup where we weren't able to find any new investigators this week. We're hoping that things will pick up soon.

Fall is continuing to pick up; more and more trees are starting to turn colors and on some of them it looks like the color is frosting on only the very tips of their branches. It's beautiful. It's been very misty and rainy during the last week, so different from California.

I'm doing well, excited that I still get to go out in a couple of minutes to talk about the gospel! :)
