Message from Alex

That's awesome that everyone had a good time at youth conference and I was able to see the pictures of Dad and Ryan on their biking trip which looked like a lot of fun as well! We have not met the new mission president as of yet but tomorrow we are having interviews so we will see what he is like!

On the fourth of July we had a cook out with the other missionaries in our district which was a lot of fun. We had to be in our apartment complex by 6pm because they don't want us getting into trouble or getting blamed for anything or being out when everyone is partying, so after our missionary bbq Elder Warwood and I went and worked out for about an hour and a half, which felt good until I ran on the treadmill. I didn't run for that long but afterward I was just drained!

And then today has been a lot of fun so far, we got to go practice some golfing with this super cool guy that is a nonmember but his wife is a member of the church and so we went and hit some balls at the driving range and then went over and played the par 3 hole. I'll tell ya what, I am not going to be a professional golfer any time soon! We had a lot of fun though.

This is our last p-day before transfers and I can not believe that this transfer has gone by so fast! Which reminds me, if anyone sends mail in the next couple of weeks it would do best to send it to the mission office :D Well, right now we do not have any solid investigators :( We found a couple of people to teach but not much success so far that we can see. Our district has done really well, the other two companionships have been able to baptize this transfer which is always awesome. We have had some success with some less active and part member families and have gained their trust and friendship.

There are a lot of really good members in our ward as well and we have been fed at least every other day if not every night, its almost too much because we hardly have a chance to eat what food and groceries we purchase on our allotment! This week will be interesting because starting today we have our car grounded because we didn't turn in our mileage report on time, so we will be walking/ riding bikes the next couple of days. It wont be too bad because we are allowed to drive to our meetings, like interviews, church, district meeting, so pretty much only Friday & Saturday we won't be able to drive at all. Other than that things have been well. Elder W and I get along really good and have a lot in common with each other, so it will be intereting to see how transfers pan out next week. Thanks again for all your encouragement and support I need it! Have a great week!
