So this email will mostly be about my week. But some will be saying that's what I do every time. The only difference this week is because it's about all the bad stuff that happened to us this week. We have had the worst luck. First off the churches wifi went out (we later learned it's because salt lake didn't pay our internet bill) so it makes it hard for us to plan because we need the wifi to sync our iPads so we've had to walk to McDonald's to plan and it's hard to do it there because it's loud. Then a lot of our investigations dropped us. Then our car started to have problems and made a horrible squeeling noise (found out later it was a rock stuck in the brake calipers). Then we got stuck in the town the dealership was (because it was under warranty) which was 45 minutes driving away from our house and we were outside our mission so we couldn't do anything. Then after we got back home we went out with the branch president in a 78 jeep with no top. Then as soon as we started to go it started to rain. We delt win it. At least till the jeep broke down (we looked at it and it had nothing wrong and it would start for a second but then die it's like something was preventing it from starting). And so we got stuck at a tiny convenience store and as soon as the dead car rolled to a stop it started to rain harder. It was like a classic movie. We got soaked all the way through our clothes the only thing dry on us were our feet because we both had water proof shoes. And we were cold and wet the rest of the night. But our car is fixed a lot earlier than we thought it would be and we found 3 new investigators. So it's been a hard week but one thing I took out of all that bad was that I'm supposed to be here. If I wasn't supposed to be here right now Satan wouldn't be working this hard to stop the work. It's just making me realizing I need to be out more and more. So this email will be short but this is what I'll leave with you and this will be my weekly quote. "There will be times that your faith may be tried. There may be times that things will not go your way. There will be times that you'll want to quit because things aren't going well. But I'll tell you this and make you a promise. Anything that is trying to prevent you from doing the right thing or the work of the lord is satan trying to hinder you and make you give up. But I promise you if you work through it and give it all your effort and diligently try your hardest that you will find things will go your way and those troubles will be resolved. It may not be the way you think or want but they will"-Elder Neyman   I love you all and hope you all have a better week than we did

We got a new mission president this week. Our old President was president Anderson. Our new one is president stone. He's only in his 40's which is young for a mission president and he is still raising 4-5 kids. So he's got his work cut out for him
