Another week down!

Hello friends and family!! Welp another week down here in the mission field! Idaho is awesome, even though I'm in the depths of it. Something cool... IDAHO HAS THE BIGGEST SPUDS (POTATOES) I HAVE EVER SEEN. These things are literally bigger than my head. Oh and they have the best jam I've ever had. That stuff is like candy!
This week was pretty slow, but had some good and funny conversations. I'll start with the funny. Well I guess I can say I've had my first person offer me their daughter once I get off my mission hahahahaha. It was an interesting experience none the less, but definitely something that made me laugh my head off once we got home. I was a wee bit uncomfortable, but all good because they're an awesome family! 
There are some really cool families in this area. A lot of younger families that own a bunch of land that they farm. It's pretty cool and wacky seeing these 9 and 10 year old kids driving trucks and tractors down the road haha! It honestly feels like I'm in a John Wayne movie all day long, but without the shooting and stuff. My companion and I got a little bug this week which stinks, but nothing bad. Just coughs and sore throats, but we're getting over it!
Well that's honestly all I can remember from this week because it feels like it's been 10 seconds since last Monday haha. I love you all and miss you all so much! I know this work is true and that what I'm doing is what my Father in heaven has called me to do! Even though times are tough and we feel like we can't keep going, keep going. Our Heavenly Father is there for you. Get on your knees every night and morning and pour your heart out to Him. I can let you know that He will listen, He IS listening! 
"Be strong and courageous."
John 14:6 
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
