Alright, well unfortunately this is going to be a pretty short letter,
and I know you don`t like that, but it is how it has to be. Because we
went hiking today. We went as a zone and it was pretty much awesome.
Hiking in the Alps. Too bad the top of the mountain was like 5000 feet,
right about Orem
level. But it was a lot of fun. I can`t remember the name of the
mountain, but it is right next to Centius, so if you look for pictures
of that general area you will see what I got to see today.
Well to answer your questions... first off I forgot to mention the
coolest part of serving in Wetzikon. And that is that our bishop is
the son of THE Pres. Uchtdorf. I haven`t got a chance really to talk to
him because he is super busy, but I was able to snag him for a few
moments and set up an appointment so that we can meet with him and see
what we can do to help him. The ward and ward mission leader are great,
but they look at finding new investigators as something that the
missionaries should do. But we will work on that with them. We are
planning on just stopping by on members when we are in the area,
teaching a short 10 minute lesson and see if we through the Holy Ghost can`t knock some referrals out if them. And we are working on joint
teaches as well, because they aren`t so very keen on that. But I am very
optimistic, because I think they really want to help deep down, but
they, like all of us, just sometimes need to be challenged to take
things up a level. I`m not going to lie, the best part of being a
missionary is that I don`t have to worry about stepping on peoples toes.
And of course, if one has the Spirit then it is fairly easy to help
We have about 10 investigators right now. One of them has a baptism date for the 29 of October,
but he still needs to start living the Word of Wisdom and Law of
Chastity. But hopefully he will make it.
No bizarre food, I beleive
there are 11 wards in St Gallen so that is 22 missionaries, zone meetings are in Winterthur,
right out side Zurich.
