Hello! How's it going?
This week has been a bit slow. Trying to find find find people to teach but not much luck.
We are doing great with our less actives we are working with but as far as new investigators it is tough out here in "mormon town". We tracted and tried to contact former investigators this week but no luck. I just have to remember that we are helping the area out with helping in-actives. It's tough because everyone is so into numbers and our numbers don't look great with non-members but we do work hard! I think that's the toughest part is that we are exactly obedient and working as hard as we can but still have no luck.
We have a few potentials that we are hoping will become investigators this week though!
We are meeting with Josh tonight and hopefully will actually be able to get somewhere with him. He's so stubborn haha.
Levi has been out of town and won't be back until next week so hopefully we will meet with him right when he gets home. We do have good news with him though. He has been living in a few different places but will be back here in Kanab permanently next week. He is so golden too so I am excited for him to be back already!
Do you remember Michelle? We met with her like a month and a half ago. So golden. She is taking seminary and all her friends are LDS. But then we just never heard back from her, no response. We finally found her address and decided to go visit her. She wasn't home but her younger sister Tauna was. She let us in right away and was so sweet! We talked for a while, got to know her and she said maybe when she was older she would join our church. But then she agreed to take the lessons now and at least try with her parents. I think maybe that's why Michelle hadn't been responding because of their parents. We got her number though and gave her ours so we will see.

Well last week we decided to pick a scripture the beginning of the week to be our transfer goal/vision for us and the area. We may have changed a word.. see if you can spot it. Haha!
Alma 17:11 "And the Lord said unto them also: Go forth among the Kaibabites, thy brethren, and establish my word; yet ye shall be patient in long-suffering and afflictions, that ye may show forth good examples unto them in me, and I will make an instrument of thee in my hands unto the salvation of many souls."
We decided that the Lord decided to try our patience to see if we can still be the good examples and work hard. Haha. I guess the scripture went a different way than we thought but we are still pushing through it and trying our best!
We had a temple trip on Wednesday and got to do a session with more than half the mission at the St George temple. It was amazing and gave me an extra little boost that I needed. I love the temple and wish we could go more!

Well gotta go. Love you all and hope you have a great week!
