Being a janitor runs in the family


The best thing this week that happened this week was that I got to talk to my Family, but I won't bore you with details of that.

Elder Dudley and I have decided to go our own seperate ways nows. No, we don't hate each other, but in an effort to talk to more people, if somebody walks by while we're talknig to somebody else, I'll leave Elder Dudley stranded talking in Spanish and I'll got talk to somebody else. The best part is he likes it when I leave him stranded, it makes him forge through the wilderness of Spanish.

Our most top investigator still wants to keep a baptism a secret (just like his cousin did) and wont commit to a specific date, but everybody he's gonig to get baptized soon, so its not even really a secret at all, but thats ok.

Recently, we have a surplus of people wanting a copy of the Book of Mormon so they can read it and pray about it to know for thereselves that its true. I don't know what got into people, but I'm not complaining. We're trying to the flood the earth with the Book of Mormon anyways, and It appears as if the tide is starting to rise.

Well, this has been another incredibly short report from Elder Clark. I hope you have enjoyed it.

Thanks everybody

Elder Clark

We had a wonderful, though too short, 45 minute Skype visit with Jordan on Sunday. He looks great and has a great attitude. He is still Jordan, only even better.

We'll share a couple of other things he talked about Sunday since his letter is very short.

Jordan says the mission cars have "mean little black boxes" in them that gather data on their driving. (apparently a few missions have these) It knows the speed limit of all the streets they drive on and verbally tells them to slow down if they are going too fast. It also measures the G-force so if they are taking turns too fast they are also reprimanded. The car driver has an identification card that he has to slide into the box, so it knows who is driving.

Jordan said that his companion has him out running 4 miles a day. That is not a typical activity for Jordan, and he said he probably won't continue it after they are no longer companions, but it is good for him. Elder Dudley also had Jordan guard a soccer goal while he kicked balls at the goal and Jordan said he actually liked doing that.

He says at their meals with families he gets lots of beans, tortillas and a variety of meats and that he really likes the food. He is trying hard to be moderate in his food intake...getting enough to eat but not overeat.

He says he is known among the other missionaries for his particularly enthusiastic way of saying "perfect".

He says he doesn't feel homesick but in order to spare our feelings he said he does miss us.

That's all I can think of for now.
