Spring arrives in Seattle

Dear Family,
  This week was pretty good.  We had some really good lessons with some of our investigators.  We are now starting to use our ward more fully and getting them involved.  As of yesterday we now have a senior couple named the Popes who are from the stake but they have been called specifically to our ward to cover re activation.  So that will take that part of the work off us, and should lead to a lot of missionary opportunites.  I think they will be doing something like Grandma and Grandpa.  They are going to be in my district which will be a little different. 
  Transfers are today, so that is why preparation day is on tuesday.  We have had the most beautiful weather! It reminds me of when I got here in late August.  Its a little scary.  The last 4 days have been 60's with really blue skies.  If it was like this in the spring and fall I could definitely live here. 
  I don't think I have ever been more tired in my life.  We have had a lot of meetings and discussions with the zone leaders on how we can achieve our goals and be accountable for them.  So  every night we have a district conf call. We have a spiritaul thought, a miracle of the day, and we talk about our day and the goals we have for tomorrow and how we are going to achieve them.  It was funny, the member we had dinner with yesterday asked if we got home at night and wondered what to do with ourselves (they were asking questions because sister dunn's brother is preparing for a mission). I wish we got home and wondered what to do at night.  We plan then I prepare for the call, then we have the conf call. It usually ends around 10 20 and then I rush and brush my teeth and in bed by 10 30. So we are pretty busy once we get home, and thats my excuse why I havent been very good at writing in my journal...
 I cant believe it's February.  I now have been out 6 months. We had a district blitz on saturday in cougar mtn. Cougar mtn area has sister missionaries there right now,  They are great. except they never answer the phone! But I was with Elder Aiken who is one of the zone leaders and he served in Federal way ward with Elder Bunton for a transfer. So whenever we are on exchanges we also talk about that ward and the people. But he said that you dont really keep track of your time but of everyone else's and that is how you realize how fast time goes. Its true.
  I heard the giants won this morning. Thats too bad. I wanted Tom Brady to win.  But it was funny cause Sis Robins told us that the Pats won sunday night, but I guess she got mixed up. 
  Have a great day! I love you!
Elder Clark
