Dear Family,

We kind of had a sobering week.  We didn't see a single one of our investigators.  They were all "too busy".  We got a few lessons as we tried to contact less actives who had moved but none of those we taught were interested in a follow up visit. None of our people came to church either.  "I" had transportation but got called into work and "A" said he was going to go to the family ward with his girlfriend but the Elders there said that he didn't come. 

We are kind of afraid that we are going to be whitewashed out of here.  President just sent us an email telling us to make sure that our area book is up to date because he is going to be making some changes. 

He he. Funny that the Elders in Manhattan have been worried about why I’m not in church.  We have tried to contact a couple people that turned out to be on missions as well.

I seriously can't remember most of what happened this week.  It's kind of sad.  It probably means I need to write in my journal more often.

We talked with a few people about their conversion stories this week.  It was interesting how they all seemed to join for different reasons.  Some were searching, others were happy where they were. They had different doctrines that appealed to each of them and rang true to them.  We never know when someone is prepared and we never know what will be the thing that touches them.  Only God knows.  Any person we come in contact with could be ready, there are no signs that mark a prepared person.  The only way to know is to invite.  So we need to invite everyone.  While we are inviting we need to be sure to include God so that it will be for the welfare of, not only our soul, but those we are in contact with.

Love you,
Elder Stapley
