Email March 24, 2014 – Elder Kenneth Wm. Burton

Bunch of Burtons

Our next door naighbor (spelling?) Sweden has just gotten iPhones. All the missionaries here are buzzing that we'll be next. President has been trying to get iPads for the mission for a while now and has been saying they'll be here this year. Kind of crazy. It really would be such a great tool for the areas though. It would make organizing information so much easier. In Odense we've already been trying to incorperate computers into the work. We've made spreadsheets that help organize the less active members in the ward and which missionaries are working with who. Right now to use it though we have to check it when we are at the church building, and being able to have it on iPads/phones whould be super nice.

 This last weeks been busy. Lots of apointments and lessons, a few of which fell through, but thats not a problem. We have a few people and families that if we could just catch them home we know would grow so much from our lessons. People who have shown a lot of interest with the first few lessons, but we're having hard times setting up the next lessons. We did get another baptisimal date for Michelle though! We had an eating apointment set up that she was going to go to. We showed up with a lesson ready and she wasnt there, she had gone to a pizza party at the church that had been set up by the missionaries and I guess she thought we were going to be there. But the next day she sent us a text saying she had decided on the 12th of April! We talked to the seccond ward bishop too, and have worked out all the problems with her living in seccond ward boundries and wanting to go to first ward. So thats a bonus too!

Thanks for all the emails this week! I opened up the email and the whole first page was unread emails! I wish I had time to reply to everyone seperatly.

Talk of the week- Walking in circles by Dieter F. Uchdorf
When humans dont have a referance point to follow they will literally start walking in cirles when lost, many times crossing back over there same path. If we keep spiritual landmarks in our lives such as the scriptures we can see where we need to go and we can continually travel in a straight line.

Im sorry this is kind of short. I had a bunch of things I was going to write about but for some reason I cant remember them now. Im practicly out of time anyway so maybe its a good thing.

I love you all. Until next week!
