Ames - October 24, 2011

Just like mom said, this month has just flown by! holy cow its almost november!
Well, just like in other weeks, this one has been pretty much the same. Im sorta liking it here in the picture rocks ward, its still not as cool as my other wards, but it is getting better.
Thanks for the packages this week! I got both marens and moms. Unfortunatly moms somehow got a hole in the side of the box, and some ants made there way into one of my fruit snack bags! i was sooooo pissed, but the rest of the stuff was A Okay.
Last night when we were at dinner the dad was like "Elders!.. im going to call your parents and tell them that you're doing good. because when my kids were all over the country i would have killed for just a phone call! Ettinger!! whats your phone number" haha it was funny. I could hear dads voice and it seemed like to me that you didnt really know how to take the fact that he called haha. Pretty funny stuff. Cant wait to actually call you guys on Christmas! should be pretty fun!
We are teaching three sisters, they are 13, 10, and 8. They are so goofy and lots of fun to be around. we were able to teach them twice this last week, and we have a couple more appointments this week. We will be able to baptise the oldest one, but the younger two have a different dad and both parents need to agree on baptism of the kids. And the dad is pretty anti =( . but that is just a little bump in the road. They are way cool.
We also are teaching a highschool kid. He has been taught before, but he just wants to make sure he "Knows" that this is what he wants to do. He could totally be baptized tomorrow, he has a testimony and what not, and he lives his life like a mormon, so he wouldnt have to make any big changes. We arnt sure what the heck is his hold up! I wish he would just get it ya know!
Not much else going on, I wish i had some cool stories and stuff like that. Maybe Next week!
Love, Elder Ettinger
