Well this was my first full week in my new area in the Bennion Utah WestStake! This area is going kinda slow but elder jones and I are workin our butts off to get more teaching going on here. I left Grantsville with 7 progressing investigators which are all on date for baptism now so that's my goal in this stake. To get that much work to keep us busy because when you're busy, time flies and it's much more fun teaching rather than just knocking doors! We were able to set several appointments this week so it's a start. Just gotta get them to progress! On Tuesday of this week, I was on exchanges with Elder Stevenson again because our companions do choir and we're both just like screw that, let's go work so we go on exchanges every Tuesday and Wednesday in my area and in his area which is my first area so I love it. But anyways, this Tuesday we were in my area and I had no idea what to do because I had just got into the area so we decided to try to contact some former investigators but elder Stevenson forgot his shoes with the Zone leaders so they asked us if they could bring them to us so we went to the nearest church building which is about a minute away in either direction because we're in Utah... Lol. But anyways, we get the shoes and then head back to the apartment to drop them off and we go walking back to contact some formers and then out of nowhere this guy pops out of his garage and is like "Elders!! Are you the missionaries for the bennion west stake?" and I said yes. And he said he's been wanting to get in contact with us and he wanted a priesthood blessing because he was going through a really tough time in his life and I had the opportunity to give him that blessing and then afterward he asked us if we could teach him the stop smoking program and if we could start teaching him the discussions. He's a less-active member of he church but he wants to get back into church and quit smoking because he has a baby that is due on my birthday!! So we are teaching him now! Such a crazy cool experience. The lord really does have a plan for everything. If elder Stevenson hadn't forgot his shoes, we never would have found him! THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES! Thank you for all the love and support. Remember, if you want to see what I'm up to I have an iCloud photo sharing album so just email me your phone number or your Apple ID and I'll add you to the album! Oh and most likely next week, I will be writing on Tuesday because we have a temple trip which means p-day will be changed to Tuesday the 17th. What better way to spend your birthday as a missionary than having a temple trip and p-day on your birthday. The only thing that would make it better is some letters (or packages) from you guys! (;
