Hey Parents! So since I last wrote I have had a whole bunch of fun! We had Leadership Council and I have seen a lot of my buddies on exchanges and the work in the Western Hills ward continues to roll forth in a wave of glory! There was this AWESOME stake soccer tournament and picnic and we had a lot of fun with all sorts of people. I have not played 5 games of soccer in a long time and I have all sorts of sore legs but I sure do love that sport more and more. The best part of the soccer games I would say was bonding with the men in the ward. I love it here.

This past week was pretty hard on me because I gave heed to Satan's negativity without noticing. I made silly mistakes that were easily recovered from but I was pretty hard on myself and sad. Well, God has given me spiritual experiences to bolster me up once again and teach me to rely on the Savior because I don't have the skills to do a lot of things right. God can change circumstances to create something beautifully spiritual out of something that I thought went horribly wrong. Long story short, I didn't make sure one of our investigator's wife got home right after sacrament meeting like she asked because I assumed she could figure it out. Our investigator is an alcoholic and a very angry person but will be baptized by the end of this year, I foresee, but he blew up at me and I was really hurt by it because it was my fault more than my other companions. Anyway, it's all better now and we are closer because of it and he explained to me how he was going to punch us all out but didn't because angels were surrounding us and him and he heard God say to listen to these boys. God changes circumstances ladies and gentlemen. Miracles are not logical.
In our leadership council we ended with a testimony meeting and it was extremely powerful. Very spiritual. I was able to sit still and not fall asleep up on the stand haha
That's my piece for this week!
