Week 45

It was my first full week in Philadelphia and I am liking it. I would rather be in the suburbs. The city is too crowded and fast paced for my liking. It may not be what I prefer, but I still like it all the same.

It has started to cool a little lately, and I am looking forward to the not so humid time of the year. It has started to get a little chilly when the sun goes down, but it is not too bad yet. I will probably need my sweaters when conference comes around.

The Pope is going to visit the area on September 26th and 27th. The Pope’s visit is going to cause us problems because we don’t even know how we are going to get to our area. Even if we can most of our area is off limits to proselytizing during his stay. We might be told to work around our current apartment during that time, but we will find out soon. Mom here—remember he lives 20-30 minutes outside his area until they can get housing.

We are struggling to find anyone that lives in our area that is interested. We are finding people we can refer to another set of missionaries almost every other day if not every day. Just last Saturday, we came across someone who was a member but lost contact with the church shortly after her baptism. They rearranged the boundaries and she did not know where she was supposed to go to attend church.

Last Sunday was stake conference. It was different than the other ones that I have been to on my mission, mostly because it was not at a school's auditorium. Instead, the main meeting was at the Broomall building and then they broadcasted to another building so the whole stake could watch it.
