27 April 1998

Dear Family,
Whew!  That was a quick month.  It's been a good month, too.  No baptisms, but still a good month.

Yes, so I'm a DL now.  the district name is Whitemud.  It's kind of an odd name.  It took a month of living in Whitemud to get used to it.  There are 5 sets of missionaries in the district.  Us, a couple, and 3 more companionships.  One area has six commitments for baptism right now!  We hope they go through.

As for my area, and E. A's, we have too commitments for baptism.  CL and T.  C is totally cool -- she's been coming to church for six months or so.  We taught her the 4th, and when we asked about the Word of Wisdom, she kinda chuckled.  7th Day Adventist is more strict that us on their health law, which is something I never knew before.  She said she didn't totally adhere to it -- she uses mustard.  (sheesh)!  The story of T is in E's letter right now - so she can show it to you if she's not too busy.

I'll be transfered in two weeks, but I'm not too sure which area exactly.  But I'll be near this area, so I'll be able to get my letters & such.  Hope you all hav a good one.

Love ya'

[E's letter didn't make it in to my collection, and I didn't post anything about T in my journal, so I guess her story is lost.  I don't even remember who she is.  That is too bad.  So many people over two years, I tried to record a lot of it, but I am learning more and more that there are many people I taught who didn't get baptized that I forgot about.  I remember some of them pretty well, but others....well, I just draw a blank.

Another letter about everything else except me.  Hopefully some exciting, juicy stuff will come up soon.

For those who are interested, Whitemud is a region of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  Sort of the North West corner of Edmonton -- by the really big, famous mall (which was off limits to missionaries -- probably something to do with the movie theater and the indoor water park with a high probability of scantily-clad women.  Just a hunch, though, since I never actually went. :)]
