Elder and Sister Hyde took care of us at
Flamin' Amy's

Hey Everyone!

We contacted two new families that we'll be teaching.  We have appointments set up for next week so I will let you know soon.  One of the families we tracked, and also got them on a referral, so someone wanted us to keep talking with them.   Other than that most of the people we teach end up being one and done :/.  They have all been saved by grace and want nothing to do with anything that involves more than that, but we are still working hard.  Still haven't been able to get a hold of "M".. We taught four solid lessons then dropped off the face of the earth.  We have another guy who is working on quitting smoking and wants to get baptized, but still working on understanding tithing.

P-day ferry ride to the Aquarium

The last few pdays have been pretty fun.  Last week was a zone activity we played dodgeball, volleyball and mafia.  Today we went to the aquarium with our senior couple, Elder and Sister Hyde.  My favorite part was the ferry ride over and the albino alligator.The Hydes grew up right around Bountiful area, they knew a Vicki and Ann Haslam, are they your cousins?  They were both teachers and have been out a month longer than me.

Our apartment is average size, not too big, no bugs because we spray the place so it stays free.  The bed is comfy.  Idk, it's nice and quaint, just your average missionary apartment.  We have some people that live beneath us that blast this weird music, and there a big guy that lives by us who sleeps outside in his chair with his shirt off.

We had a funny experience this week, we were tracting and found a guy who was stoned out of his mind, he was telling us how a few weeks ago Thomas Jefferson sent a handful of marines over to the holy land to kill all the people who read the Koran.

Sorry, I had to email later, everything closes on Martin Luther King Day, so we went to the aquarium and then we emailed from the Hydes.

BTW, the bed wasn't mission or apartment property, it was ours, so it's OK!

Love you all,

Elder Shields
