Ok, so maybe July isn’t the happiest thing here in Mesa, but you know, it all works out. Plus, I can’t really complain, since I’m in a car. If I were on bike, then I’d have something to complain about, especially since it’s been hitting 112 or so just about every day recently. As a matter of fact, the thermometer in our car showed 121 for a second or two, but it’s not accurate after it’s been parked in the sun.

Anyway, this week has been pretty good. We taught some more lessons this week, which was really good, since we didn’t teach many last week. It’s still going a lot slower than the last area, but that’s giving a more relaxed atmosphere, so that’s a good thing.

Also this week, our Mission President, Pres. Watson, left. He flew out on Saturday. Our last meeting with him was actually in the temple, which was really awesome. We started in a chapel near the temple, where we had a little meeting, and then we all headed over to the temple, where we went though a session. Anyway, we all got to say goodbye to him personally, and it was a really great thing. Afterwards, we had a great lunch, and then he was off. He left on Friday morning for Salt Lake.

We haven’t yet gotten to know the new President, Pres. Bassett. But we get to have our first meeting with him tomorrow morning, which is pretty exciting.

Anyway, the work in the area is going pretty well, we just have a lot of investigators who go to church every week but don’t quite want to take the step of baptism. So, we’re working on that. We don’t even know what’s holding lots of them back. But, we hope to be able to get them to take the last step.

But yeah… That’s about it for now. I don’t have any more updates on the shoulder yet, though I’ll probably be calling the doctor this week to see what he says. Hopefully it’s been able to heal itself a little bit.

Anyway, that about does it. I hope that all of you have an awesome week!
