Dear family and friends,

This week was super duper long! Maybe it was short for others, but it kept dragging on for me! Here is the weekly run down!

Monday: Elder Cannon and I went fishing and I caught a fish! It has been a while since that has happened so that was a lot of fun! Elder Cannon caught a bass like 20 minutes after my catch!

Tuesday: We did tracting Tuesdsay and also taught our investigator! We invited her to come to church and she said she planned on being there! After teaching our investigator, we did more tracting and visited some less active people in the ward! when it gets dark in Scottsboro, we dont knock doors because people get really mad at us.

Wednesday: This was another day of tracting! At night, we went to the church and taught a less active about a part in the book of mormon! He was really interested and liked the discussion we had! We then drove to Monte Sano for the night.

Thursday: We started our day at 4am...... it was super early I know! We had a temple trip and had to be in Birmingham by 8am and it is about a 2 hour drive from Monte Sano and we all take forever in the shower because we all have to look so fresh for the day! We drove to the temple and I got to say hi to some friends which was awesome! Here are some friends from the first night in Alabama! 

After the temple we went to get food and then drove back in a bad rain storm. It was a long day, and got even longer when Monte Sano came over for District meeting the next morning! And I finally have a picture with my companion Elder Cannon! 

Friday: We had District meeting and it was good! After District meeting we did some planning and then tracting. Later that night we had some priests from the Monte Sano ward come up with us on a mini mission! So I took this kid out and showed him the ropes of being a missionary! We met some drunk people and anti mormons and all the fun stuff! We did teach a lesson to a man and it turned out to be a really good lesson!

Saturday: The mini mission people came back and we went to a members house to help move his wife in! That took most of the morning and then we took the mini mission people back to the apartment and then for some tracting! The mini mission people left, and Elder Cannon and I did some tracting and that was pretty much the day!

Sunday: We had our investigator show up for church! She was super nervous, but loved being there! During the sacrament she was telling me how she felt the spirit so strongly and then Elder Cannon gave an amazing talk that almost sent this investigator to bawling her eyes out! After sacrament she had to leave, but kept telling me she wanted to come back next week and felt the spirit here and loved it! It was truly an amazing experience to see and feel that!

That was the week! I hope to hear from y'all soon! Love and miss everyone!
