3 email in one week:-)

Last week was kind of interesting. Sean canceled her appointment, and rescheduled for two weeks from last Saturday which is kind of frustrating. We haven't been able to get a Bible in Arabic yet, but we run into Hanann (the Egyptian lady) every once in while and says hi. She doesn't seem interesting in taking the discussions right know.

It was interesting because we got a call from Spanish missionaries asking if Elder Thomsen could play the piano for a funeral for a lady that passed away in their ward. How they found out the he is really good at the piano, we don't know. So it was awkward because we didn't know the lady that passed way and we didn't really know anyone there because it is a Spanish ward  so everyone there only speaks Spanish or is bilingual. 

We also got a text from a former investigator who wanted to meet with us again. The only problem is the missionaries stopped teaching him because all he wants to do is Bible bash with the missionaries, Elder Thomsen was one of the missionaries that first contacted him so he knows what he is like. He brought his pastor on one of the lessons. We invited him to General Conference because we were going to be at the Stake Center watching it. He said he would try to come, then he backed out. 

I enjoyed General Conference, it was a good one this time, I was kind of surprised that they didn't announce a new temple this time. So Sunday we had dinner with a family they were the Felix family, when I told them I was from Hyrum they got excited. Turns out bro. Felix is from Mt. Sterling and Sis Felix grew in a small town by Tremonten. They moved to California because of work. Small world.

Thanks for the love and support

2nd email:
I don't know I how forgot about this, but next week we get to go to the temple again next Wednesday Oct 16, so preparation day has been moved to that day, so I won't be sending out an email in next Wednesday. Thought it might be a good idea to let you know.

Sunday night after conference we always talk about what part of conference touched us.  This is Jake response:
3rd email:
I like Uchtorf's talk the same one as Rachel I also liked his Priesthood sessions about when you fall you get back up.
