"Come, Thou fount of every blessing, Tune my heart to sing Thy grace, Streams of mercy, never ceasing, Call for songs of loudest praise. While the hope of endless glory Fills my heart with joy and love, Teach me ever to adore Thee, May I still Thy goodness prove."

Week of Highs and Lows

Hi everyone,

This week has been a mix of highs and lows.  On the low side, we had a day that was so bad that it was almost comical.  Two of our lessons fell through.  When we tried the second one, as we were walking back to our car, a guy who was super drunk starting yelling at us.  He kept yelling really derogatory things as we were walking across the parking lot.  Later, we were trying to find a referral who lived in a maze of apartment complexes, and found that his apartment number doesn’t exist.  What did exist was the giant bird that pooped on us.  As we were walking back out of the complex, a car swerved to hit a mud puddle that splashed all over us.  Right about then it started to rain really hard.  Luckily by that point, the day was pretty much over.  :) 

On the high side.  We started to teach a new YSA investigator named A___.  He was a referral from the South Hills YSA ward.  He is super cool!  He is a Christian, and has really strong faith.  He said that he feels the spirit when he talks with us.  He even accepted a baptismal date for April 28th!  He also came to church this week!  Also, out of the blue, we got a call from a guy named M___, he asked us how to get baptized!  :)   We told him that there were a few things that needed to happen first, and we have our first appointment with him on Tuesday.

So yes, missions are full of highs and lows, but the lows make the highs so much sweeter!  Like my mom says, you gotta have some clouds to make an awesome sunset.!  :)

It’s been raining a lot here lately, but it’s starting to get a little bit warmer.  It feels like winter is finally starting to change to spring.  I’m really looking forward to general conference coming up soon!

Thank you for all your letters and support!  It has meant so much to me!

Love you all,
