Hello everyone! I am once again please to host you on my journey of the last week. And what a week it has been! I can honestly tell you that this is the most exhausting week I have had throughout my days with a tag on. Monday I spent all day driving to, and in, Farmington! But it was a lot of fun I got to see a lot of my mission buddies I hadn't seen in a while. Tuesday I was up bright and early to head to the trainers meeting where we picked up our trainees! My new companion is Elder Housley from Dayton, Idaho, so not too far from home. Great kid, we are getting along well and working hard. I had my birthday this week! Thank you to everyone that sent letters packages and gave me any attention at all! What a blessing. The rest of the week basically consisted of us getting shut down and people being very short with us. Usually people aren't direct like that, they haven't been my whole mission, so it has been a really interested thing to experience. But it's good though, we have been working so hard! Trying by members we haven't met and just out knocking doors. I love the Lord and serving him! Sometimes you just gotta put your head down and grind it out, other times it is a walk in the park. But I love each and everyone of you! I feel like my ability to love has grown exponentially on my mission, and my appreciation for any expression of love has grown. The Savior loves you, and he wants you to do what's right, even when it's hard and even when you are tired. Here's my joke for the week. Why should you never trust Stairs? Because they are always up to something!
