hi familyOn Friday, there was a ward activity where we watched 'The Testaments'. It was so members could watch it and also bring lots of nonmembers. There was only about 2-3 investigators, but it was a really cool experience. The work has really struggled in the past couple weeks. Finding people is way hard. We keep praying to be put in the path of someone who is ready. Not much else to report on. I love you all.
We did get two additional tidbits via letters to Elder Thorne's sisters and a recording he sent this week. He and his companion had the opportunity to teach early morning seminary last Friday morning. He reports it was a great experience and he really appreciates that he was able to take released time during the day as he had to awake at 4:30 am in order to get there on time! He related an experience that he and his companion were at a Ward Activity playing volleyball when a less active member asked to speak with them. They met with him and he told them that he had, for the last several years reverted back to some of his old habits. He had found himself now homeless and was living in the bushes at the church eating leaves and twigs from trees and shrubs. They went home and brought him some of their food and sent him to seek help from a member of the ward. The next day they went back and it appeared he had done just that.
We received a few pictures, including this one of Jaren in action in the kitchen:
