Feb. 6, 2012 letter

Why hello everyone!
How are you all doing? I have had a pretty good week these last few days and am glad to say that we finally had more than 2 people at choir! We had 7 people, 1 an investigator, after church. They had fun, although it was kind of hard without power for the piano. Nonethless, we worked on He is Risen (hymn 199) and it was fun.
This week, Elder Shields and I have been trying some new tactics to increase our effectiveness in the area. We are going to now be trying to sift through investigators a whole lot faster to keep only those who are willing to progress.
I don't have a story about an investigator this week (we did a lot of dropping, and not much of teaching pregressing investigators). However, on Friday we got to go as a Zone to help someone start building a hut. It was pretty cool, but I didn't get any pictures of it.
On last monday, We also went to a park, and got some cool and hilarious pictures. Don't complain if you feel they are slightly off color. I try to keep the coloring the most consistent I can, but I am no photographer. ;P
