A great week and a new companion

Hello everybody!

I hope that you have had a great week and everything went well.

Our week here was really good. We taught quite few lessons and we had 1 investigator at church. We have been teaching him for a little while but with a space in between because he some surgeries going on. We had an awesome lesson with him this week about the some of the commandments. We were talking about prophets and we were showing him a picture of President Monson and then we talked about how if he knew that Joesph Smith was a prophet, that meant his successors were prophets also. We he saw Joseph Smith's picture he kind of got excited asked if he was the one that was visited by God and Jesus Christ. He is our top progressing investigator right now. He has to do dialysis 3 times a week because of the surgeries earlier in the year and he has tubes in his chest that can't be submerged for a couple of months.

I really enjoy my new companion Elder Doman. We have a lot of the same goals and personality traits. We both feel that this companionship is inspired because we had pretty much instant unity. He came from an english area in wenachee so he had 6 weeks to learn spanish and then 6 weeks to forget it but he is learning really quickly. Tonight we are going to eat with a less active member and she said she is going to make some hot salsa to help him learn even faster. I took him to someone that always really hard to understand just to give him something to check his progress off of. The funny thing is that person is still hard for me to understand but it has gotten better. Elder Doman is from Utah and just graduated High School in June. Also we have the same birthday, just a year apart.

I'm super excited for General Conference this weekend! I love being able to listen and read the words of the prophet and apostles. I hope that you are getting prepared to listen this weekend! They have been inspired to speak about things that are important for us today and we are ready to listen with the spirit, then we will be taught so much more by the spirit.

Speaking of apostles, we are going to be having one of the apostles here on oct 26! We are super excited for it! We haven't been told who it is going to be but thats ok because they are all great men of god.

The weather here has been pretty rainy and cool. Still nothing like the Kansas storms. The days are getting shorter and shorter. It starts getting pretty dark around 7:45 and then people don't want to meet because they think its late. Hopefully as the harvest winds down we get busier.

I hope that you all see miracles this week and that missionary opportunities present themselves.
