Last Skype Home

Elder Blodgett is scheduled to fly into Appleton on Wednesday 5/24/17 at 9:35pm.  Please join us for open house to welcome him back – on Sunday 5/28/17 from 4-6pm, in the community room of our condo.  We live at 400 N Richmond Street, in Appleton (Richmond Terrace Condos).  Entrance is at the northeast corner of the building at the corner of State & Packard streets.  I’ll post signs in the lobby directing people to the community room on the 2nd floor.  You can park anywhere.
The work isn’t ending by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s weird to think that I won’t be here soon. Yesterday, as you know, was my last skype home–one week and a half before I come home.
Anyways, we’ve have a wonderful week here in Mint Canyon. Last Monday, we had a awesome zone activity of mini golfing. Later, we spent most of the evening at our ward mission leader’s home having dinner and correlating missionary work.
Tuesday, was weekly planning, and we decided we needed to get an investigator to the temple visitor’s center. So we contacted as many people as we could to arrange it, but we had to cancel last minute because it was for yesterday and this investigator is struggling with her relationship with her mother so we decided to postpone it a little bit.
Wednesday, we had a packed day and we biked a lot. In the morning, I did My Plan, and then we got out to work. We biked up a bunch of steep hills, even though many people weren’t home. It was good to know we were out on the Lord’s errand anyways.
Thursday, we helped a less-active person by moving a few items of furniture out of their apartment and in to their garage. Then, we had district meeting. It is sad to think that I only have one more left. We had a training on how to address the needs of our investigators and set baptismal “goals” with them.
Friday, we visited more people with no more success than Wednesday, but we were able to contact some new referrals that came in through the system. We had lunch with our district leaders which was fun.
Saturday brought some sad news, a few members of our zone have gone home. We helped them out by cleaning up their apartments. We then had a great day talking to many people, inviting them to church and reminding them about Mother’s day. Later in the evening, we went to a baptism with one of our investigators.
Sunday, Elder Carter finished packing for India, and then we drove around our area looking at big houses. We were all sad for his departure and anxious for skyping home. We had church and heard a lot of great talks about the importance of mothers.
