Puyallup--March 9, 2015

Dear family,

Thank you for your concern [about his wallet]. It's nothing compared to Elder Tyler Merritt's mission. He has to worry about thieves breaking in to the mission office. He even had to come up with and present a security proposal at zone conference!! It's happened three times already. How crazy is that?! Anyways, things are going well in Puyallup. My new companion is Elder Graham from Roosevelt, UT. He is a great guy and he loves to sing! We have been focusing as a mission on doing things by the Spirit, and in the Lord's way. For example, finding, teaching, planning, etc. Right now, we are focusing really hard on finding, and President Eaton told us that we're going to have to be creative in how we do it. His counsel to us was also to spend a lot more time street contacting and also to knock on a couple of doors when we go to an appointment. The "J"'s just had their baby, and they won't be able to meet for a couple of weeks. We are still trying to teach "I" and "R", but they keep cancelling our appointments. We are planning on seeing "F" and "T" soon as well. The sisters are also handing us two investigator's that just moved in to our complex. Their names are "S S" and "G B". They are waiting for their family to come up before they get married. 

Thank you mom for the CD's. I love them. I'm glad you were able to go to the temple! That is really neat. How do you like the rededicated Ogden temple? I remember the open house. It is beautiful. Jessica, it sounds like you had a lot of fun. I can't believe you payed $3 to ride a bike taxi. You'll love The Great Gatsby. It's a wonderful story. Aaron, I'm pleased to hear that you are using my old clothes. Sarah, I'm glad that you had fun arranging your room and going to Sky trampoline park. 

Love to all,

Elder Herbert
