It's been kinda hard, but it's picking up!

This past week and a half has been kinda hard- but it's picking up! 

We lost like 6 progressing investigators, all for different reasons. So it was kinda really hard. But it's getting a lot better! The sun is shining, literally it's 82!!!! And we have gotten to meet with part-member families we have been trying to meet forever! So that is exciting.

 One member is less active, so we stopped by his house to meet him. He is out in the country and he invited us right in. His wife looks just like Andee Neff and is just as sweet! They invited us over for dinner next week and gave us sausage and pork chops he slaughtered himself. They were so nice and they also had this cute 3 legged dog they are fostering. 

Speaking of dogs...Monday when we went tracking a dog followed us for a good 45 min. He had his tongue hanging out and would brush against me and slobber all over me. He was really sweet though. We named it Sandy (like from Annie), then Poppi- realized it was a girl then Olive Oil, then Squishy ("Finding Nemo" quote)- then thought we should change it because he kept running into the street and calling it squishy was asking for trouble. So we then called it Ohio... We tried tracting, but he would try to go into their houses which made it difficult, luckily his owner finally got him. 

We did service the other day for a member pulling weeds. So I never knew how much of city folk I was until I got here. I had to ask about what to pull... and ended up pulled out one of her plants. Luckily I didn't pull the root, so technically I just trimmed it. 

Transfer calls are today so I will find out sometime today if I am staying here, going, training, or new companion. 

I love you all so much! Hope everyone is doing great in school and work and everything! Love you all!!!!!!

Congrats to Christiana on the engagement!!!!!!!!

Love Always,
