Sundays are busy but good. We ride the bus to Church. We are getting the hang of the public transportation. We got our passes set up so they automatically renew when the totally on the card drops under ten dollars. We have our 3 hour block and then our missionary meeting after. We have 4 Barlow students for dinner every Sunday. We have now had 16 students to dinner. We are developing some special bonds with our interns. They really are a dynamic group. All the young women are return missionaries but one. All the boys are return missionaries but one and he got his mission call since being here. He told us tonight that he is going to Paris France. We feel honored to work with them. We have worked on our lesson for Monday at noon. I finally feel ready to teach. We have a meeting in the morning so it doesn't give us any time to look at the material before we head to Capitol Hill for our noon class. For the Sunday school hour we go to the new member meeting. Each week they have new young adults moving into the area. The committee talks to them and sets them up with information they need to fit into the ward. We are there to encourage them to take an institute class. After Church we meet with the missionary committee in the ward. So we are gone about 6 hours every Sunday from the time we leave to go to church and we get home. The gospel is great.
