Hey mom, This week went alright. The beginning of it we taught our new investigator Hayden on Tuesday. Then Wednesday we taught Pedro, our recent convert. I was down on Friday and Saturday but Elder Gardner went on splits and he got three potential investigator lesson set up for next week! How exciting is that. Even though I was down we still worked hard and through that Heavenly Father blessed us and those ready to accept the gospel. What if I was sick and we both just decided to stay home. That would be quite a few souls not being extended the invitation to hear about the gospel. Yet another reason I love Elder Gardner. He doesn't find excuses not to work. On the contrary, he finds every excuse to work. I love it. I need to adopt more of that missionary mindset. Not to say I don't try to work, I just haven't quite reached the level he's at. Anyway so our week was great. Along with studying the atonement I've picked up reading Jesus the Christ by James E. Talmage. I tried when I first came out but I wasn't ready for it. haha but now I'm trying again. My goal was to finish it before the end of my mission but now my goal is to just fully understand what I read to the best of my ability.
