July 28th email


first of all, thanks for the trek pictures theyre pretty good. and if you havent heard yet, i gave jenna a great big hug for all yall =) it was really weird to see her... and GGL and uncle dave/eloise/katie/steve. really weird. but fun.

i asked eloise and dave about what missionary work they are doing since they have two missionaries out. and they gave utah excuses!! grr. i might have rebuked them a little =)

but enough of that, on to the real letter. this last two weeks has been really hard because so many people were out of town. things that are hindering the work right now: camping, camping, flakey la mothers, flakey la fathers, doesnt want to talk about problems, disapeared, believes in trinity, dont like bappy conditions, dont want to be taught by missionaryies, etc... but apart from that we have three baptism dates =)

one of our eternal investigators is getting baptised this saturday!! his name is Bruce and weve been teaching him for awhile. hes recently overcome a, literally 24/7 chewing tobacco habbit of 37 years!! its so cool!

last week we found someone weve been hearing about for awhile but hasnt been invited to meet with missionaries. so we stopped by and she was really interested and wants to learn more. we havent been able to teach her yet tho cause shes been really sick for the past two weeks but we gave her a bom and she said shed call us when she feels better. her name is sister guard. i dont think she wants to be baptised yet but just learn. we will change that =)

Chalet needs prayers. she is going to be very important to the church someday because satan is working on her so hard before her bap and after. she just lost her job, she had to go to the hospital, and shes looking for a place to live. shes really having a hard time and understands why. shes super solid but its a struggle to stay that way.

satan definately doesnt like this work and will do anything to stop it but this is the Lord's work and with prayers and his help it cannnot fail.

i know thats true and that this truly is a "marvelous work" (d&c4:1) .thanks for all your prayers and missionary efforts. it helps the work so much.

love yall so much!!
Elder Hale

ps jenna told me you have a excellent missionary opportunity with the new neighbors. that sounds exciting! continue your good example and let them know what makes you happy =) love you
