E-mail of November 7, 2005

Dear Family,

I have had a pretty good week here. We were able to do a lot of tracting, and were able to find a lot of new people to teach. Just to let you know, I have been getting my mail, I think the only one I didn't get is the one Cami mailed back to me. I am hoping none of my friends had any problems, because I wouldn't know which of them got letters back. I have no idea why there was a problem, to my knowledge, the address was correct. We had exchanges with the AP's last Saturday, and they said we were doing a good job in our area.

To answer your question, we use the optional key indicator to keep track of OYM's which is basically every person we introduce the Gospel to. We are mostly doing proselyting in this area. The problem is that missionaries in the past in this area just socialized with less active and part member families, so they expect us to come over and just talk to them, and are put off when we teach. So I am giving them a break and will try again in a few weeks.

Anyways, my companion seems to be doing fine. He is a little pessimistic, but I think he is doing a lot better. One of the hard things about training, is that everyone tries to "help you out" training your companion whenever you go on exchanges or something. Oh well. We are still doing really well, and the work is taking off.

Not much else to report. I'm praying for all of you.

Love, Timothy
