This is the last time I get to stress over transfer emails!!  While I will be staying in Palmer Park ward for my last 6 weeks, to my surprise, Elder Gardner will not be my last companion.  Instead I will be serving with Elder Durrant a new Zone Leader and much younger missionary from Idaho.  Don’t know him personally yet so I will let you know more of what he is like next week.

Yesterday we went on exchanges with with the Spanish Elders in our zone.  It was a long crazy day but it ended with an awesome miracle. The last item on our plans for the night was to try and contact a LA family we had found in the ward directory the night before while planning.  The parents weren’t home when we knocked but their active daughter who was recently sealed in the temple was!  It was a good thing too because as we found out from the daughter, stopping in would have been a bad idea.  She filled us in on her family’s needs and introduced us to her 9 year-old sister who wants to be baptized!  The Lord’ timing is perfect!  We’re planning on calling the parents later this week to set up an appointment.

We found a new investigator tracting.  She is a heavier lady, walks with a cane because of a knee surgery she had and is a bit on the weirder side of things but we started teaching her anyways.  To prep her for Sunday we gave her a church tour with two sisters from the Relief Society.  At the end of the tour we were sitting in the chapel and we asked if she had any questions.  She said “Yeah I have a question.  I’m 49 and my boyfriend is 18.  Will the ward members have a problem with that if I bring him to church with me?”  It was really awkward after that.  She came to church on Sunday but seemed more interested in talking with me and Elder Gardner than listening to the speakers and lessons.  ICKY!!!  We are not going to pursue teaching her.

4th of July was uneventful compared to last year.  Fireworks were completely banned because of the fire so there wasn’t anything going on.  I think everyone left town because almost no one we tried to see was home.  We had dinner with Wally, Joyce and another Recent Convert that signed up to feed us.  The RC wanted us to help cook so I learned how to grill!

Attached is The CCSM Anthem, the song we’ve been recording.  It’s rough around the edges but considering our resources and limits it turned out pretty good.
