Week 48: A lot of biking this week (See last weeks letter posted yesterday)

A lot of biking this week, we biked to Shevlin 7 miles away, also to Ebro 8 miles away, and also to a house 5 miles away. Also while we were in Thief River Falls we biked around twenty miles so, I would say our total biking miles this week would be around 60 miles. If we biked 5 more would be a one way trip from Bagley to Thief River. It has saved us a lot of miles though so we can do other things throughout the month. We are planning on biking around Lake Bemidji today as a P-day activity.

We had exchanges as planned. I went with Elder Wendell to the beautiful area of Cass Lake which is actually on the Leech Lake Indian Reservation. We stayed with some members who fed us Brats for dinner. As part of the exchange, Elder Wendell and I showed Robb Johnson, a recent convert of about a year how to do family history work to take names to the temple for his ancestors. He is super excited to do so and is also planning on serving a full time mission soon.
On Friday we had a great District meeting and then proceeded to walk around Bemidji all day long talking to people about the Church. It was great. The fireworks were also very good and were very pretty when reflected off of the lake in Bemidji.
Tonight we are having a picnic with Mia and the Niswanders. It should be really fun and we also are going to have the opportunity to see Alvin and Leslie there again as well.
It's been a very fast week. I love each of you,

With love,
Elder Davis
