Dear Mom and Dad,
Hey, thank you for the package and everything. Transfers aren't until May 18th, so I should get it in plenty of time. It sounds like everything has been crazy back home, eh?
Nothing too exciting has happened here. We have been doing a lot of walking and street contacting this week because the weather has been getting nicer. It got up to 16 degrees yesterday, it was beautiful. The only exciting thing that I can think of this week was we taught Loreene again and she has told us she wants to get baptized! But, she wants to learn more about the church, so we are planning for our next lesson to really focus on the Book of Mormon.
It was Elder Crowther’s birthday on Saturday. He is now 21, and a member here, Sister Leigh, was really nice and fed us lunch and dinner. She also got Elder Crowther a birthday cake and a present. She’s a really nice lady. Then we had an appointment cancel so we walked about 5 miles up and down the main street in Cochrane just talking to people, it was all right.
Easter was awesome, no one had signed up for dinner yesterday and we thought that there was going to be no one at church, but we had this British family invite us to dinner and then the Nzojibwamis had us over for dinner as well. It was a good day.
We had interviews with President Archibald on Wednesday and it was nice. He told everyone basically that the work in the mission is going to be improving and that we are going to be dependent on revelation from the Lord in all that we do.
That’s about all that has happened this week. Today we are going into Calgary to play basketball with the Zone. We invited Dallin Bachynski and Marc Nzojibwami to come play with us so I am excited. They are both really cool guys, and Dallin is 7 feet tall. =) Then I am going to go the mall before and probably buy a nice old fashioned pocket watch with that money you gave me.
I love you Mom and Dad.
Keep on Keeping on!
Love, Elder Dowd
