Hey everyone!This has been one heck if a week for sure! It started on Monday with 2 hours of tennis. We decided that we were going to play, so we spent 2 hours playing and learning how to actually hit a ball. Then on Tuesday we helped a man move and he lives up the steepest set of stairs I have ever seen. It was ridiculous to try to get anything down the stairs. Wednesday we decided to play tennis for another hour since we get an hour of outside time due to covid. Thursday we went for a 2 mile run. And Friday we biked 14 miles. We had a bunch of referrals that had never answered the phone, so we decided to go contact them all in person! It was pretty fun actually. Saturday was basically our rest day, and Sunday we biked to Church, to a lesson and back home, which ended in 18 miles yesterday. I know the math doesn't quite add up, but there were tons of little bike rides between our 2 big ones. So, according to my watch our weekly final mile count is 40 miles biking! I'm exhausted, but it was so much fun!Friday we had a huge miracle though. While we were out contacting people one on our list lived on top of a huge mountain. That made it really unattractive to go visit her because I really didn't want to ride my bike up there. We still had some time though, so we went and got all the way up there, and she was actually sitting out front of her house just relaxing. We were able to teach her and her grandson the plan of Salvation, and have a super spiritual lesson! It made the ride worth the work! We also were able to put a man we are teaching on date! He kept talking about how he wants to change his life, and we talked about how baptism helps us change, and repentance is the key to lasting change, and he said that is what he wants in his life. He wants to repent and change for the better! It was also a super cool lesson! The work of the Lord doesn't stop for anything! Keep finding ways to spread the gospel in normal and natural ways!Love you,Elder Wilson
