Of hospitals and hand grenades.

After e-mail last week Elder Dowley and I had the opportunity to go down to the Youngstown Stake Center and play some basketball, volleyball, dodgeball, and chesh-wozy (which is kind of like basketball and ultimate Frisbee mixed). Had a pretty good time doing all of that and such.
Then we came back and tried to stop by some people but only stopping by the hospital to check on Sis. Fay and the rest of the family. We've been stopping by the hospital about twice a day for the past couple weeks just to see if there is any comfort we can provide or something like that. Sis. Fay will probably be passing away this week because they had to up her pain medication to once every hour. Which is a little sad but the family is doing well dealing with it. We've actually been working on a potential referral for the other Elders in my district.
Tyler Bennet is still going strong and he's pretty much been taught all the lessons. We're possibly going to Kirtland with him Saturday and then the following Saturday he should be getting baptized. Everything with him seems to be working out well. Just want to get the family more involved so he has more of a support system. But the stud hasn't missed church once since we started teaching him.
The Burgess family is doing well. They weren't able to make it to church yesterday because their ride wasn't feeling well. Basically everyone in the ward was sick yesterday. Although from what it sounds like him and his whole family was ready to come to church, which is a very good thing. We're also working on getting them a baptismal date but they need to get married before that happens. That is proving to be slightly a challenge but all will work out when they understand why.
We've also still been working with Harold Christopher (I don't know if I've mentioned him before). He is doing awesome just needs to come to church.
Last night we met a nice lady named Nicole and her sister Casey that currently goes to the university of Akron. Plus we also met her adorable daughter Brianna. Elder Dowley and I showed them a picture book and taught them all from just the pictures we were showing them.
Anyway love you all.
