July 29

Dear Family and Friends!!!

Your week sounded great! All the parties and spending time with Shae and Bryce! That is great to hear about Eddie! Can't wait to see those pictures:) We had a neat challenge as a mission this week. We had the OEM Trek!! From Salt Lake to Eugene, 800 miles!! As companionships we had goal of tracting 10 hours, 10 new inv. 20 bofm, 20 resto pamphlets and 60 cards. That was our trek! It was amazing! We were excited to start the Trek and see miracles happen.

 On Tuesday we were going to follow up with a potential investigator and he invited us to come in. We asked him if there was another woman in the apartment and he said yes. We go in and it is his roommate Shanice. We had the first lesson right there with her. She loved it and has been looking for a church. Her and her family are going through a death in the family right now, so the Lord placed us in her life at just the right time. We are meeting with her again next week.
The miracles continued throughout the week. Thursday and Friday were a little rocky but we didn't let that get to us. We were determined to reach our goals for the trek and knew we could do it. 

Saturday came, a new and fresh day! We had 2 tracting appointments with the Lord. First stop, all 7 of the doors that opened accepted a Book of Mormon!! Second, was the time that we decided to tract as a district, we found a new investigator Andrea and some great potentials and ended the day with 10 Book of Mormons to 10 of Heavenly Father's children! The Lord really blessed us and we saw the fruits of our labors throughout the week. We reached all of our goals besides the new investigators but we are excited to follow up on those we gave bofm's to! 

Today for Pday we had a zone activity!! It was so fun! We played ultimate frisbee and President and Sister Young joined in. They surprised me how fit both of them were haha it was awesome! We are excited for this week! Lots of great things are happening in the YSA ward. We have 2 baptisms this week. Caitie Dickelman and Robert Greene. They are so amazing and were so prepared! Hope this week is a good one! Thank you for the emails!  I love you so much!!! 
Your Missionary!!
