Wow I had no idea it was Memorial Day, haha funny how that happens. So honestly this week was a bit rough but ended a bit better. Last night after having very few results we went to a contact. It was a family married for 20 years, with two 17 year old twins. They were really receptive, and she had already gone to church a number of times before. They had rented out a house to the Elders before. They are members of another church right now, but still really open. It was really cool finding them, cause we are really needing new investigators. This week was also transfers. First I am staying in the Rio mission, and I will be staying with Elder Richmond in Caxias until at least July 10th. I am excited, because I think if we work hard, we can have lots of success. We had training with the president today and it was pretty awesome. He said a lot of things but the thing that stuck was that we should always remember the converts we have done with God, and our mission is one of the only times we can turn ourselves over 100% to God. It is by doing this that we become truly happy.
So we have been doing PT at a place nearby. This week we will return to the doctor to see how things are going, and should learn more about how to proceed.
That is good to hear about everyone. Phew it sounds like you are busier than me! haha. That is awesome to hear about Lake Powell, did they go camp out there or what? I also heard about that Tornado, that is sad… lots of stuff happening these days. Thanks for the history and the picture though, that is pretty sweet!
Anyways I love you all and hope you have a wonderful week, (last week of school for the kids right?)
Love, Elder Ottosen
