We walked and walked and walked ...

We walked a lot this week!

Our car was in the shop and we are now covering four wards so our area doubled and with no car we were walking all day. We did really good this week though. We were challenged by our zone leaders to teach the most lessons and the winner would get a prize. So we tried extra hard even with no car. We were able to teach a 9-year-old girl who's grandma is a member and she now has a baptismal date set up for the end of June! She is a sweet little girl and really wants to be baptized. Her dad is also not a member so we sent the elders in town to go and see him.

We did tons of work and had a couple mile long walks and I was able to work on my tan. There were also a couple of times where we got caught in the rain for awhile. We were wet but it was still almost 80 degrees.

Overall it has been a fun week and we have been able to get a lot of work done. We had a chance to teach a workshop at a ward missionary night in Kahuku. Each set of elders talked about a different part of member missionary work. We got to talk about "follow up". Follow up is key as Elder M. Russell Ballard has said. He says it is taking the hands of the investigators and walking the path with them. I can tell you how much easier it is when it is not just the missionaries walking that path with the investigator. When that person has a whole ward walking along side them as they strive to change their lives it will be that much easier. I challenge all of you to not only reach out to someone but also to follow up and show them that you really care.

Love you all hope you have a great week.
