Awtry has been in Canby for only 6 weeks more than me so we are both
pretty new to the area. We get lost a lot because neither of us have a
GPS. I only have a map. This area is on the grid system mostly so it
isn't too bad, but there are a lot of streets that don't go all the way
through. Also, there are two of every street. The Main street is called
99E that goes through the area. On either side of it are the Avenues.
There are avenues 1-16 on both sides of the main road so you have to
know whether it says NW or SE Avenue. On top of that there are Courts
for most streets that are dead ends. Those throw everything off.
Last week we taught two lesson, which is unusually low for this area (so I have been told). Normally there are about 7
investigator lessons a week. I can't wait to meet everyone. We were
supposed to have two lesson on Mothers day, but one cancelled and the
other was a no show. I hate when that happens, but nevertheless it does
more often than not. Both the investigators that I have taught so far
came to church on Sunday so that was sweet.
This week we are hoping to teach a ton of people. We have like
8 investigators that I haven't met yet so this should be a good week.
This area seems to have a lot more people that are relaxed and laid back then in West Linn.
