May 7, 2012

Dear Family, Well another week here in good old Daugavpils. Things are going well here. I really enjoy the city and the people. We had a good time working hard and trying to find new people to teach. Hmm... let me think, what was something cool that happened this week. Well we did a sweet service activity this week on my birthday. We went to an old people's home and did a concert for them. There were about 300 people so that was kind of interesting. We sang a lot of cool songs. I even sang You Raise Me Up by Josh Groban. Two years ago I never thought that I would be in front of 300 people singing Josh Groban, but a lot of things happen on missions. We also had a nice day of getting absolutely soaked in the rain. I really like the rain for some reason. It's really fun walking into an investigators house and be completely soaked from head to toe, they get a good laugh out of it. Our investigators are doing well. We have so many people on the verge of baptism they just need to receive the final spiritual witness. We're praying for that though, it wouldn't be surprising if we had a baptism in the next month. And yes I did tell you where Elder Clark is from, you must have not been paying attention ;) He's from Calgary. I was also thinking about the traveling things. I think that your idea of waiting for a year is probably better. It is definitely tempting to do it right now, but I just need to learn and be patient haha. I think that it would have more meaning for me if it was in a year anyway. I think that's what we'll do. Thanks for being willing to consider all of my crazy ideas though :) I'll need to make sure to start saving up money as fast as I can to be able to go in a year. I found a sweet souvenir shop today; I'm going to get some cool stuff there for my birthday that I can bring home. I was thinking about the Russian hat thing, and maybe I'll try and find something that's a little cheaper that's more Baltic. I was thinking that I could find something that's more from my mission, what do you think about that? Those hats are really really expensive. Also as far as phone calls go, I'm really upset but Skype isn't going to have video. I'm going to still use Skype, and I'm super excited to see you. I might actually try and go buy a little cheap camera for a computer. My time is going to be at 7:30 my time so that means 10:30 a.m. your time. I'm sorry that I'm not able to work it out around your church, the only time that we're able to do it is right when you have church, so I put it at right after Sacrament meeting. Have a great week, we'll talk to you soon :) -Elder Pack
