27 May 2013

Dear Mom,

i did get the card you sent. was that for this week too? it is so much easier for me to do the emails here than it is to write physical letters, that and i don't have to check the mail box.

we had a good week here, between all of the things that members have been helping us with, and zone conference which we held this last Thursday. there has been a lot that we have had to do.

we were able to do the confirmation ordinance for the man that we just baptized last Sunday. this was the largest confirmation circle that i have been in so far while I've been out here. there was seven of us standing in the circle. 3 missionaries bishop and 3 others.

i have now been on this trio for one whole week. its been hard and fun, usually some where between the two. i am generally ready for it to be over though. we have had a lot of members being able to take us out to places which can be really nice because we can split up one of us can go with the member and the other two can go off to another place and we can get more done. i was actually able to go with a member of second ward who actually served here in Palatka about the time i came out. he got off his mission and then moved back here. what is even better is that i even knew him while he was serving his mission.

this last week has been the only time where i have had to cover two wards on the same day. and both wards overlapped. i went to 1 and a half sacrament meetings. only because there was a leadership meeting we had to attend. otherwise i would have had to be at both sacrament meetings the whole time.

by far Sunday has been the busiest day this week. that one and Thursday after Zone Conference. this week is starting to look like it could be really busy also. we will see as things come hurling our way again.

love and miss you all

Elder Ogilvie
