I'll do what He wants me to do

For this week, we didn't get any new investigators. We did a lot of tracting and talking to people on the street but not too many miracles this week. Not too much happened this week, pretty much the same old same old things. We just keep working. We’ve had some ideas for a lot of events that will be really good in the future.  I don't know, even though the work is going terrible and its unbelievably hard, I still think everything will be okay and that I had just a really good week!  Unfortunately Damian and David didn't show up to church because we couldn't get them a ride but later last night we went to his house and just explained that he shouldn’t rely on us to get him a ride every week.  I said, “You’re a grown man.  You should be able to figure out what you need to do to get to church."  It’s crazy how much effort people have put in for this church to go forth over the years. like those girls that took the pages of the Doctrine and Covenants and protected them with their lives, and the pioneers, and thousands of others that go great distances to make it too church.  But it’s hard to get someone from literally across the street to want to go. All I know is that I will never be lazy for any call that God gives me.

Today was an amazing P-Day.  We took a hike to this place in the middle of nowhere.  The other Elders found this trail after getting lost for three hours.  So we took a bunch of awesome pictures.

Today I'm so tired, but it's good. We handed out a Book of Mormon to a man that was really good to talk to and we did some good chapping today.

Not much has happened lately.  It's getting harder to write about things when you have been in an area so long and you do the same things all the time.  Damien cancelled because his mom is going into surgery.  So hopefuly we will see him Sunday  I've been feeilng sick so we went inide a little early.

Today I felt terrible so just slept and took tons of medicine.  That was pretty much my day.  Elder Patterson said I looked like death.

We  had dinner with Ryan Wark and it was cool because we saw him walking when we were on the way to his house and he forgot that we had dinner and he just said, "Oh that's right, well we can do food."  So we made nachos and talked about stuff.  It was fun.  Then Br. -- made an amazing family history night at the ward and asked us to help and like 7 non-members showed up.  It was great for them to see us and to talk with them.

So I apparently made Elder Davis sick, so today they had a lot to do so we took shifts for one to stay with him and the other going with his companion, Elder Dalton.

Today no one showed up at Church. David didn't come, nor Damien, but church was really great and it just felt good.
