Same old same old...JK

Transfer calls were on Saturday and I found out that I will be staying in New Castle... but even more crazy is I will be staying with Elder Millett. This will be the first transfer not having a New companion!

Anyways we had a great week this week!

It started out on Tuesday. We got a call from President Welch and he was wondering about an investigator that I did not know, so we decided to go visit him... as we were driving I realized this man lives super far away! We finally got there and knocked on his door, but of course he wasn't home. We decided we needed to find the reason we were in the area, so we knocked on a ton of doors, but no one was home. Until the last door we were going to knock on. A a guy about 18 years old answered and we were able to teach him on the doorstep! Super cool miracle! By this time we had worked right through dinner, so we were starving. We decided to go to this Mexican place not to far away. (It was really good btw.) While we were eating i had a strong impression that we needed to go to a lady named Carrie. Every time we tried to go see her, she wasn't home. We got up and left dinner a little early and went right over. When we got there we noticed she was outside, so we literally ran over there and started talking to her. She told us that she has lost a lot of her faith in God and she was wondering if he is really there. We testified that he really is there and he cares about her and the things she goes through. She asked us. How do you know this. We then told her about the Book of Mormon and how if she read and prayed about it then she would realize that God is there because she would get an answer to her prayers! It was a really cool experience!!

A lot of other amazing things happened this week but I don't have a whole lot of time!!

"Why me, Why was I so lucky to be able to meet you two and have this happiness you have brought to me and my family?" One of our investigators said. I too have wondered that almost same question, but mine is "Why me, Why was I so lucky to be able to grow up in this Gospel, Why were my missionaries with me since birth helping and guiding me?" As I have pondered this question I realized the reason for this is, so that I can be able to share what I know with others. I know that God looks out for us. He answers prays. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, because I have prayed about it and gotten an answer! I know that Jesus was the prophesied Christ! He suffered and died that I might live. What great happiness this gospel brings and even more happiness when you share it!!

Love y'all also congrats on the B-Ball team!! Well done!!

Also happy birthday to my tiny little Brother. If you see him please give him a big wet kiss for me and then tell him to hit the weights!
