Onward Ever Onward

Hello y'all

This is the report for this week!

So elder low, I'm finishing his training, third time I've been through training, gets easier every time I get trained! Pretty sure that it seriously is for me though since he is extremely excited to be a missionary, it's kind of refreshing honestly. Rejuvanting.  He is from West Jordan Utah. so obviously a good guy. We had some lessons with Mike he is our focus until his baptism, so we are hoping that it goes through! He is a good man with a strong testimony of our Savior, not very common these days!

A lesson I learned this week was Adapting, because basically everything happened that we wanted but never when we wanted it or when it was convenient.  For example, one day we were praying for somebody to at least talk to us and then a guy came and started talking to us just as our bus pulled up.   We ended up doing a lot of walking but it was good to talk to that guy! So we had to do little adaptions like that all week, even Sunday when the teacher had to leave and we were stuck with teaching on the spot, but iI prefer to teach that way anyway, keeps things
interesting and you seek the spirit more when you are under pressure. (maybe why we have trials?) We had fun with that. We also had a couple of Chinese people walk in who want to learn about Jesus in English, so we got well acquainted with google translate, it was rough, but fun.

We had something pretty cool happen as well, and it all started because we got the munchies, we were on exchanges and we got really hungry, so desperate that I even agreed to go to mcdonalds, (still regretting that one) While we were walking in we saw this lady outside crying.  She was dressed well but she obviously had recently been put out on the streets. She was crying by this mcdonalds so like Ammon, our spirits swelled at this opportunity. We started to talk to her asking her how we could help, we ended up walking in and buying her a mcdonalds meal. She whispered a thank you and we gave her our card.  We got our food and then we went back to work and as we were walking down a street a random guy came running from behind us, we stopped and he told us how impressed he was with what we had done, we exchanged info so hopefully something happens with that!

Well I have got to go now but just know that the Atonement is real! It is waiting for you! don't get discouraged! I am glad it is at least getting cooler for you! Love all of you with all of me! Have a fantastic week! its almost Halloween, holy smokes!


Oh and GO UTES!!!!!!!!
