Hello all, What's all going on? Everything is going great here in Newtown. For anyone who doesn't know I now have a new companion whose name is Elder Ross. He is from Green River Wyoming and he was trained by the same missionary as I was. He is a hard working missionary and he is very obedient so that is good. He is a good influence on me after having 2 companions who went home aha. I've been sick for this whole past week and I'm slowly recovering! We have still been getting our tracting in and finding people who weren't interested in learning anything but they were super nice to us. One guy we ran into was on the grass with his dog and we came up and introduced ourselves. He immediately asks us where we are from and talks to us and he knows members who live outside of our mission and we gave him the gospel of Jesus Christ pamphlet and our number if he was ever interested. We haven't seen too many miracles happen this week but I can list out what happened this week! Wednesday we looked up a potential investigator and she told us to come back later. I wasn't feeling to great so we went in early to rest, oh and we made a bunk bed in our apartment and settled in. And it was the start of a wonderful companionship! Thursday was Weekly Planning and a cool little lesson with a member and 2 non members. So this guy from Yuma Arizona has his sister who lives in Ridgefield Connecticut. The non members are both a little older and the man has bladder cancer and the women broke her leg bone or something but they both work at Keller Williams. We talked a lot about what we do as missionaries and just answered the questions they had. We will be calling them soon to set up a time to come back. Friday we went to see some of the less active older people and just to be there for them and read with them! I love being around old people because they are super nice to us and love us and always thankful for us being there! Did a lot of finding as well and weren't too successful. Saturday we did some service for a non member who knows a member from our Ward and we were in the forest pretty much, cutting vines from the ground and ripping them out and all that fun stuff. Yeah it was a good opportunity to talk to him about what we do and we left a good impression with him. We went up to sandy hook to do some finding and we decided to knock this entire street and we did that. At the bottom of the hill this weird guy said to us "is that it?" " why don't you keep going, go up there." So we decided to listen to this guy and we went up to this street, knocked on some houses and at the fourth house this guy comes out of this side garden and says hello. Soon his wife and kid come out as well. They were way friendly to us and we talked to them for 25 minutes. Turns out this lady knows someone from our Ward! It was such a blessing from the lord, we have put in time to find his children and he finally blessed us with a family. Preach my gospel tells us to strive to teach families so they can be sealed to their family forever. I can't wait to teach them! We invited them to church and they said that they would come sometime! Sunday morning we had an Aaronic priesthood meeting with the bishop because Elder Ross hasn't met bishop and he really wanted too. We were in with the priests and they set up some splits we will go on with the priests coming soon. We told them that we would tract their brains out and that it would be fun. I am scared to not be with an experienced companion because I am not good with door approaches or talking to people, but I know the Lord will bless me when I open my mouth. Before and after we had dinner we went and did finding and again no one interested. One thing I've noticed is that the Lord doesn't bless us all the time, we have to put in work and have the faith that we will find someone. Something I struggle with is having the faith that I will find someone. And lately I have felt as if Heavenly Father abandoned me and I wasn't having any help but if I think back I see that he has blessed me a lot. I may not be the best missionary but over time I will be better. We have just had a lot of finding time and that has been good but nothing to crazy happened over these past couple weeks other than just trying to find people and work hard and have no regrets. I know that this is the true church of Christ, and that Joseph smith was a prophet and the Book of Mormon is true. I know that what I am doing is the lords work and he is guiding me to the people who need to hear this message of the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love you and I hope you have a great week! Study Lehis dream in 1 Nephi 8, 11. Also preach my gospel from the very beginning will help us as members of the church!
