well ok mission work now. well we had distrect meeting here in Grand Rapids last wedensday and we had trade offs with the distrect leader so i went with his companion back up to big rapids. boy was that a long day. when we got back their we went and walked around the collage that they have their it is like BYU-I up their in Big Rapids, so thats all they do is working on campus which is ok but it was cold. well here in Grand Vally are busy days are on friday and saturday and we dont know why on friday but it seems like thats when everyone can meet with us but i guess that is a good thing thou. monday we had a dinner apointment with a members and their family. the husbend is the young men president but when we was over their for dinner they have a pig pong table and the wife plays it a lot and she is really good. so elder Kohler played her and wow she is good and they invited us back to come and play again on are p-days so we are going to do that. on tuesday we was going to go and meet up with a person that we had a return apointment with and they told us that they didnt want to meet with us so their was somemore people that live in that house and they told us that they would love to meet with us so we asked if they had time and we told them about are church and invited them to be baptized and they said yes so we set a date with them for the 10 of december and they said ok. so now we have 5 people with a baptism date but we are going to have to move some of the dates back a few weeks cause we cant get a hold of them right now which is not good. so if you cant tell heavenly father works in different ways for different people. o here in Grand Rapids us the Grand Vally ward and the Grand Rapids word is doing a chrismans devo from the 1st Presidence chrismens messgae on the first sunday of december and it is at 8 pm our time so polly will be around 6pm your guys time. so we are going to invited all of are investigators to it and the mormon tableernackel choir is going to be singing and a lot of people knows about the choir that we have in Salt Lake City. but before that we are going to have a dessert party with everyone then watch the broadcast. we have dinners all this week but saturday with members which is ok with me and we have dinners all next week as well but saturday so we are getting feed which is good. o how was the missionaries that came to the door mom and dad. but thats all for now hope to hear from everyone soon ether in letters or in email. love ya
