February 29, 2016

Dear Parents,

This week was slower but still good.  We didn't have a ton of appointments but we met with some of the Bishops in the other wards to discuss how to work with the YSA’s in their wards. We got some good input and are going to contact some of the inactive ones this next week.  Some of them are only children of record and haven't been baptized yet.  We also just had a call from Elder Nockai. He is serving in this zone and had a referral for us.  A YSA kid who said he wants to join the church!  He is dating a member but hopefully he is still sincere.  I is out of town right now. He is going to be gone for a couple of weeks which is always worrying but we hope that as we stay in contact over the phone that we can continue to encourage him in his progression.  Dstill hasn't been able to meet and we are losing hope that he is ready right now.

I can't wait to see the house. I wish I was there to help.  Even more I wish you were here to help with our place.  It is in terrible shape and pdays much more packed now that we are near other missionaries again.  Oh well, I'll probably get it clean by the time I leave.

My new favorite thing is watching guys in the ward try to flirt with the girls.  Some kid will walk in to sacrament meeting and spots one of the girls.  He'll dither for a moment and try to work up the courage and then go over and sit next to her.  So far so good.  Now he just has to open his mouth and say something smooth and cool... and then he starts talking about anime.  We have a weird ward.  Its a lot of girls from Utah with soccer scholarships and then a bunch of older guys who are looking for "a girl who will just love them for who they are".  The dynamic is pretty funny.

I made maple bacon cookies this week.  They were weird but good. Thanks.

Cool to hear about Mariah.  

Sounds like Nathan is going to beat me home.

Sorry, but I can't think of anything very interesting that happened this week.  Love you all,

Elder Stapley
