Letter received June 9, 2014

What up?!  It has been a crazy couple of weeks with Memorial Day and Zone Conference and just life.  Memorial Day was great.  We spent it at Bishop's house with all of the Maddox family and all of the Jordan family.  So much fun with great food, some football and some intense games of Corn Hole (bean bag toss).  Then after that we went to Sister Anders house for another cookout with the Tuma's.  Nerf/water war was interesting...Then that evening we went and saw one of our investigators.  We were supposed to have a ride home from his house but for some odd reason the member wasn't answering their phone.  So we decided to just start walking even though it was about 9.  As we got closer to one of the main roads I saw 3 people, 2 with strollers, walking perpendicular to us and felt prompted to talk to them.  So we turned to walk toward them and said the usual "hey how you doing" and started to walk past them but couldn't ignore it so I turned around and struck up a conversation with them.  Turns out they wouldn't mind meeting with us.  So we found 3 new investigators!  Then and only then did our member call us to give us a ride :)  Had to do what the Lord wanted first!  Then Saturday we taught the Book of Mormon lesson to the parents of the family that we're teaching.  By Sunday night the mom was on 1 Nephi 7 then Monday the whole family was reading and all the kids wanted their own copies of the Book of Mormon.  Now they're on 1 Nephi 11.  Their 8 year old is such a great reader it's amazing.  Apparently today is supposed to be quite the severe weather.  I'm sitting here listening to the rain and intense lightening and thunder.  Could be a crazy day.  I can't believe Elder Gunnoe is going to Brazil.  That's crazy!  He'll do great :)  Well, I better get this in the mail.  I love you so much!!
Much love,
Elder G
