Riley #39 - Trying to find ways to make contacts

                                                                            October 21, 2013
Hi Everyone,

      Thanks for the emails. We went bowling at a member's house today, so we don't have too much time to type.

     I will try to send the forms off today, but really tomorrow is probably the earliest and I don't think I can do it priority.

      If Sam is still in Oakland, see if you can ask him for the email of one of the Chinese missionaries there. I would like to be able to contact the Chinese missionaries in other state side missions and see if they have any ideas we haven't tried, so if you know of any let me know. Sam probably will get his Visa soon, so try to do it quickly.

    As far as meeting before Jake leaves is probably not possible according to mission rules.

 There wasn't too much change this week as we are continuing to work on the same things we have been doing. We did try Taiwanese shaved ice which was delicious; also, persimmons and passion fruit. Both were good, but the passion fruit looked really weird.

       Anyway, we are still working on coming up with ways to work find people and use our time more effectively. The universities are not in our area, since we are focusing on southern part of the mission. English class is good, but I feel like there isn't a lot of interest around where we live.

      Perhaps another activity would be more effective. Actually, we have a fair amount of people we are meeting with right now, but we are not able to meet with them regularly as most of them are busy a lot. If we could only meet with all of the at least once a week, we would be doing great. 

We are still trying to think of an activity for next month.

Lots of work, but not much else new with me. There should be pretty big changes over the next few weeks.
