Hey it's me again,

Well another week has gone by. The weather has been crazy this week at
one point it was in the 60's and sunny and later in the week it
snowed. Now it is nice and cool, in the high 30's low 40's and partly
cloudy, so no real need for a jacket. It nice.

This really has been an interesting week. We have been able to do a
lot of service for people this past week which has been nice but for
some reason this was a difficult week to find people at home. A lot of
the appointments we had fell though. Despite all that Elder Johnson
and I have been working hard. We were blessed with several small
tender mercies throughout this week. One of those little tender
mercies occurred on Wednesday. Our 7pm appointment fell through and
our 8 pm appointment moved back to 8:30 so we were left with a blank
space so we turned to our backup. We went and tried to contact several
members that neither of us knew. The last one on our list was not home
but when we pulled up we noticed that another less active member
across the street was just getting home. After we tried the person we
had planned on we went across the street. By this point it was 8:15
and we had an appointment at 8:30. We weren't planning on visiting
right then because of our appointment but when they answered the door
they let us right in! We made it a quick visit but it was still
awesome. We had been trying to get a hold of them for a couple weeks
now so it was a great blessing, even though we were in a time crunch.
This week has caused me to think of the words to a hymn.

"God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
He plants his footsteps in the sea
And rides upon the storm.
Ye fearful Saints, fresh courage take;
The clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy and shall break
In blessings on your head.
His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding ev’ry hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flower."

(Hymn number 285, God Moves in a Mysterious Way)

Sometimes the work is tough but I know that there are always blessings
in store. I love being a missionary and the blessing that that is in
my life.
