Happy Father's day! This week went alright. We need to find more people to
teach, but when it comes to knocking doors and contacting, my companion
always get lazy. I'm glad you had fun in Portland. That's great that you
are all going to go out with the missionaries. It's going to be a great
experience. I wish the bishop here would help us out some more. He's always
busy though. He doesn't get home til 8 or later every night from work, and
by then we usually are already teaching our last lesson of the day. Sounds
like everyone is doing great. Hopefully you and Mom can find some fun
things to do this week so you don't get too bored haha. This week, we went
to go visit one of the less actives in our ward, and usually when we go
teach, his wife isn't there, but this time she was. So we were talking to
her and she said that a lady that lives in the apartment across the hall
wanted us to go visit her, because she's been having trouble with alcohol
and wants to quit, but alcoholics anonymous didn't help her. So the next
day, we went and talked with her. It went really well. I think she'll
progress, and she said the guy she lives with is interested too. And that's
not even the best part. She's from Prague in the Czech Republic. It was
funny when we went and were teaching her, because we taught her in Spanish,
but you can tell that even though she speaks Spanish really well, it's not
her native language, but since neither of us speak Czech it was the best we
could do. Haha She has two little kids. A 7-year old boy and a 5-year old
girl. We didn't see her son, he was in the other room watching tv, but we
saw her daughter. She reminded me of a younger Courtney haha. She had the
similar facial characteristics and the same hair haha. It was weird. Well,
I hope you have a great week. I love you. Elder Janda
