Good Week

Landon helping with the U.S. Open golf tournament a couple of weeks ago.

Greetings people!

So this week was another quick one in Pinehurst. By now the U.S. Open is over and the town is finally starting to settle down. The Women's U.S. Open was not quite as exciting. The crowds from the men's weren't here this week.

Some interesting things that happened this week: We moved! The trailer is no more. Now we don't have to stay in a honey moon suite anymore! That trailer was just awful. Let me tell you a little bit about what I had to live in for almost four months. There were mirrors everywhere, the carpet is dark purple, there's a bathtub in the MIDDLE of the bedroom, yes, the middle. Like I said, think honey moon suite. Ughh. The trailer was just too big for just two missionaries. It was near impossible to keep clean and we had to do lawn work. So when the contract expired we had Brother Gross, the ward mission leader find us a new apartment. The new one is SO much nicer. It's two bedrooms and one bathroom. And we have a doorbell, a garbage disposal, a dishwasher, a gym, a fireplace that we can't use, new carpet that's not dark purple, and just a better spiritual environment! It's also only five minutes away from the church as opposed to twenty for the trailer. 
So this week we just spent every day cleaning and packing. We had some good lessons with all of our investigators. I and F continue to be slothful in their progression so we're gonna hit em hard this Thursday and see what happens. If they don't progress, we may have to drop them. 

We also had a good lesson with A. This week we visited him a couple times and addressed some concerns he had. He's basically just a dry Mormon at this point. It's funny, we teach him all this stuff and he's like "that's great, but I really just want to know the doctrine so I can live it." I guess that's a pretty good thing. He was even really excited to live the law of tithing. The only thing we're waiting on is an interview with president about A.  And then we'll be sailing away into the waters of baptism with him!

Something else interesting we did this week was receive a new missionary. He replaced Elder Perse. He's from San Antonio, TX (how fitting that the Spurs should win the finals just after he leaves.) He's a good guy and I'm excited to be working with him. He says he's pretty good at basketball. We'll see about that haha.
So something else interesting that happened this week was we went up to Robbins to establish an English class. We went to the library and they said we can do it! So we'll be having class starting July 11th every Friday from 4:30 to 5:30 pm! This will help us so much and I'm really excited to teach these people!
Well those are the highlights of the week. Pinehurst is about to get a spurt of energy with a new Elder and a new apartment, so be looking for our success coming up! I love missionary work and I'm really starting to love my mission. I love that there's no culture shock to worry about, and I still get to learn another language! Who says foreign missions are better? Haha just kidding. All missions are great.

Well I hope you all have a good week! Oh and Dallin, I got your package! Thanks for the stuff! I'll have one coming your way soon!

Love you all.

-Elder Landon Carroll
