I'll take choir definitions for 200 Alex

Dear Family,
  Well it was a pretty good week in Lakota Creek.  It is definitely the winter, but I really dont get too cold.  Whenever we are outside, were always running so that keeps us warm.  We had a great Sacrament meeting, 5 of our investigators were there. Unfortunately the one that we were really counting on was not there. He drives trucks and starts at 3 in the morning on Sunday and ends at 11am.  But we'll get him there somehow. We found him this week and had a really powerful church tour with him.  We also found this man from Malouwi (spelling is probably wrong) in Africa. He came to church and has been to church before and is living the commandments, so we will probably baptise him soon. 
  The choir did a musical number for veterans day.  And we have seen the choir practice the past several weeks and the number of male singers were lacking. So we offerered to participate.  We only had the practice on the day we were performing, and I needed like a choir dictionary. I didnt know what half the words the choir director was saying meant. But it ended up being really good.  We sang America the Beautiful. 
  Kelly Gleed is the bishops wife. We ate dinner with them last sunday and they took our picture.  Stake Conf is this week. I am pretty excited about that. I will be  able to hopefully see the Flores family from Jovita Creek and the Gray family in Federal Way.  Bonus to have served in three wards in the same stake is that you know half the stake. 
  I have to thank Grandma for the Armor of God activity from Alma 50.  I have used it several times this past week.  We teach a lot of islander families and their kids are everywhere.  But it helps when their is an activity. Although sometimes they take the bow and arrow part a little too far.  I am trying to crack into the marshalese families that live in our area. But it's tough because their are two big families and the fathers are both pastors for a big marshalese church in Auburn.  It's all about connections/networking and understanding their culture. Once you get in, you'll have the potential to baptise a lot.
  Well good luck this week against Lawrence.  We need revenge from when they beat us in basketball in substate.  Sounds like Dad will have a good week in Orlando.  Have a wonderful week!
Love, Elder Clark
