Snail Mail Rec'd 10/23/09-We were definitely humbled this past week...


Hey Family,

I totally had this sweet email written and then when I tried to send it, it got deleted and then I was out of time. I hope this will be good enough.

We had a couple of rough days last week. We got a little prideful after we picked up 4 new investigators in one week. We were definitely humbled this past week after all of our appointments started to fall through and people didn't come to church. All of our investigators that had baptismal dates fell off date, one even came down with the swine flu. It just goes to show how much our faith and reliance on Heavenly Father determines how much success we are given. Faith was definitely what we worked on most this week. We are also working on keeping up our study and diligence. We've slacked off a bit in those areas, be I know that if we pick it up and use all of our time effectively then we will be even more blessed for our work.

We did a lot of service this week for an inactive sister in the area. We helped her move to a smaller home in a basement of a member's house. It was a little frustrating when we were helping her and all her friends that showed up to help us were all drunk and decided to stand around to watch each other spin a basketball. Fortunately, they weren't there the second day. Since we helped so much, the sister has agreed to let us teach her two unbaptized daughters. Score!
That's all I got for this week. The time is flying by.

Love, Elder Wright
