Happy Easter!

Dear Family,

This week has been pretty good. It was Spring Break over here, so some people have been out of town. We have had a few funny experiences this week.

On Saturday, we were scheduled to have dinner with the Hamblin family. We are still getting used to the new ward and so we looked at one of our ward directories to find out where they lived. Their address was pretty far away, near Shady Lake. So, we mounted our bikes and headed out!

We got to Shady Lake a little early, so we biked around the lake a little and discovered a new housing development that is not on our map. That is cool! We arrived at their house about 5 minutes to 5pm. We knocked on their door and there was no response. There wasn't a car in front of the house. In fact, it actually looked like no one lived there. We called up the family and they said that they actually lived at this other address which was another great distance away. Woops!

So we biked as fast as we could and made it there in 15 minutes! We had some nice pizza with their family. They told us that they had lived there for the last 6 months. I thought it was weird because our ward directories needed to be re-printed at least every 3 months to keep it accurate. When we got back to our apartment that night, I looked at the ward directory I got it from and sure enough, exactly 6 months old. I should have looked at the newer one that was only 3 months old. Oh, well. It all worked out.

This week, we also got to meet a part-member family named the Rhode's. The husband was baptized last September and his wife was really impressed with the church. She claims that she is an atheist, but after talking with her and getting to know her a little, we are pretty sure that she is not. She totally believes in God. We think she is using that as a cover-up for a hidden concern. She is practically a dry Mormon (means unbaptized)! Wish us luck with her!

I hope you all had a great Easter! I love you all!

This is the Renton Zone! We had our Zone Training this week, too.

This is what happens when the weather report says no rain and then it rains a lot.

This is Shady Lake! It was hard to find a good picture of it because of all the houses surrounding it.
