Week 5

What's up guys!

Sorry I didn't have a ton of time to write last week, but time is FLYING. It seriously feels like every other day is P-day.

So last week, to start out on a negative note, we lost Matt (our really cool investigator) cause he got kicked out of the nursing home for insurance reasons. It was depressing cause he was really interested and now that he is out of there, he is also out of our area so we
can't do anything about it. We talked to him on the phone and he said he is probably just going to go back to his old church. We compensated for having a straight up awesome week this week though. We found three new investigators, who are all interested a lot! 

By the end of the week and during meetings, me and Elder Clanton are just done cause we are in the only walking area in the whole mission. It's been a little
hard walking cause all the hills in our area, and there was a huge natural fire so everywhere has been super smokey and hurts to breathe. Haha sister training leaders thought we were acting like we were to cool to be at one meeting cause we looked tired, but I guess thats what
you get when you walk 15 to 30 miles a day in smoke. Oh well, our work has definitely paid off and we can both agree we saw miracles this week. 

As far as living, all four of us living together are best buds and are laughing or singing when we are studying. 130 bucks a month for everything can kinda make it hard, but it's slowly teaching me
better budgeting and spending habits. 

It's awesome out here, I love the work, and am doing my best to work my hardest. Everyday I learn something knew.

A quick thought for you all: we had a lesson the other night about how God has blesses us and how it's sometimes hard to see his hand in our lives. We have to remember that a lot of blessings that he has promised us are eternal, and if we live our life right and in harmony with Christ's teachings, we we can see the small ways God has blessed us here on earth, but more importantly, better appreciate the blessings that he has promised us eternally. God loves us all very much and wants us aware of the blessings we can receive if we are patient and obedient to his commandments. Obedience and patience has allowed me to see the blessings in my life and better appreciate the blessings to come.

I hope you all had a great week. Remember to think of referrals for the local missionaries in your's a lot of help;) love you all

Elder Andrew
