This week was amazing but full of pretty normal missionary things. I will just hit some of the highlights.
On Tuesday we got a new car - a Nissan Altima :) and got to hang out with some past mission companions while we waited.

We found a few potential investigators and have return appointments with them for this coming week!

We went on an exchange and saw some great miracles.

We contacted a less active part member family that has taken the lessons before and got so close to baptism. We are going back to start teaching them the lessons again.

We got to do some awesome service cleaning up a yard. We had to clear a chain link fence from vines and trees that had overtaken it. It was fun, we moved A LOT of plants.

We went back to Dr. Hoyas to have my companion poked with acupuncture needles.

On Saturday we went out with our ward mission leader to visit some less active members. Most of the ones who answered turned out to not be the person we were looking for and they apparently have moved out. We made a list and record of all the LAs that no longer live at the address we have. Its about 1/4 of the ward! Its kinda crazy.

Sunday was probably the best day of the week. Echo Miller, a recent convert of about 2 months, gave a talk in sacrament meeting. You could tell she really dislikes getting up in front of people but she did great and the ward gave her so much support it was awesome! 

It has been a good week, I am doing well and loving the mission. We are working hard to find and teach new people and we have people in the works but nothing amazing has happened quite yet.

Thank you for all the support, you are awesome!
