Hello Family,
It is good to write to you again. Everything sounds like it is going good back home and I'm glad. It has been pretty good out here too. This week flew by to be honest, we had so much to do and so many people to visit, but somehow we don't have any progressing investigators. The people here are really friendly until the gospel is brought up, then they shoo you away, or they act interested when they actually aren't. It's a little frustrating at times like I said in the other email, but when it looks like no one will talk to you, you knock on a door and someone is super excited to see you which makes it all worth it.
I went on exchange Saturday with one of the zone leaders and get this, he is from Logan, went to USU for a year, loves golf, and even personally knows the USU golf coach (who by the way is the Bishop for the singles ward there). He was so awesome to learn from. He could start talking about literally anything with someone and then be able to tie in the gospel seamlessly into their conversation. We were also trying to visit a part member family but they weren't home, so we went to ask the person who lived across the street to see if they knew them. We were invited in and talked Bill Murray! Not the actual one, but he was super open. He has been through a lot in his life and is now confined to a chair and can't move around very much, and he is his wife's caretaker since she has some mental problems now. He is one of the strongest people I have met. We were then able to teach him the first lesson and he loved it. He agreed to read the Book of Mormon and pray, and go to church the next day. I won't be able to see him again since we were on exchange, but it is a cool experience that I hope I won't forget,
Other than that there wasn't a ton of other super cool things like that, it's 98% struggle and 2% reward, but the reward is worth it.
I love you all so much and miss you all. Let me know how things are in Abq and Utah, and just know that I think about each of you often.
Love you all,
Elder Wells 2.0
