Memorial day week

This week has been pretty sweet! This week we followed up with some people who had said we could come back after tracting and they were home. It was neat. So last week we knocked into a youth minister for the Catholic church and we taught half of the restoration and we had a great discussion about our similarities and differences. Then this last Saturday we went back with a member and hoped that he would be home. We rang the door bell and nothing. So we knocked and nothing. And right when we though he wasn't home he answered. I was so glad. His name is Jeremy. The ward missionary we brought with us connected really well with him and the lesson went great! We invited him to church and he said he would be willing to come some time. I was really happy about that. Also we stopped by another person that Saturday and taught him the restoration too. He said he would come to church also but he couldn't make it last Sunday so he is going to hopefully come this Sunday. He doesn't believe in organized religion but we are going to do what we can to help him. Everyone has concerns and they can all be over come especially when the spirit works within someone's heart. 
Today we have a set appointment with a family and this is going to be our first lesson with them so we are excited to be able to start teaching them as well.
On Saturday when we were talking to Jeremy on his porch some one drove by and yelled out "Go home" and that was the first time I had gotten that one. Elder Degn and I had fun talking about it that night and swaping stories of people yelling random things from their cars. What was great about it was that Jeremy said "you are home".  I thought that was really nice of him to say.
So things are doing great here in Frisco and things are going to keep getting better. Well I love y'all and I hope everyone had a great week. I can't believe that Christopher is all ready done with his play. I'm sure he did awesome! And Sarah is already graduating/graduated. Well I love y'all! Have a great week!
Your missionary,
Elder Drew Bowen
Notes from the Mommy
