Dear President,

This week was kind of hard, mostly because I was feeling so sick and some of our plans had to get changed. I just felt like I couldn't give it my all. But, we still did have incredible lessons with those we were able to meet with. Yesterday we met with S***, who was an earlier investigator. As we were meeting I felt the spirit so strongly, and I felt like S*** was responding to what he was feeling. He told us that he knew the Book of Mormon was true, and that he wanted to make changes in his life that would lead to more happiness and joy. We had planned well last week during weekly planning, and I felt like we just taught well to his needs. We really wanted to help him redevelop the desire to meet regularly with missionaries again. He said that he would, and he also recommitted himself to read every day in the Book of Mormon this week. I am so happy for him.

This week we had some really great talks with members about missionary work. One day at the church our appointment didn't show up, but there were a couple members there so we ended up talking with them. We talked about preach my gospel and commitments and how it is connected to repentance and why it is so important. One of the members had some concerns about inviting people to commit to things, but as we redirected him to the gospel of Jesus Christ, he really understood better. I think it is crazy how easy it is to get distracted from that sometime. But when we remember why we do everything, we are more effective and we have power in what we do. Also, every Sunday in relief society we share a missionary experience with everyone. One of the young women had shared an experience she had had with us, and we invited her to come up with us. It was great!!

We set such great goals last week in our companionship, but we are still working towards many of them this week. We had some setbacks this week, but we are really determined.
