Week 16

Elder Carruth's caption to this pic "I thought this was cool. And yes there was a train coming and yes we almost got hit and yes we are still alive."  I think he was channeling the questions he thought I would ask when I saw this!  Melinda

This week was pretty crazy! We had a lot of people drop us and we also dropped some, but the Lord has been blessing us like crazy! We have a lot of referrals and also some new and progressing investigators! I love it! We had a lesson with a new investigator named Allen. He had a ton of questions and the lesson was all over the place! We called him today to set something up and he said he had a lot more questions from the intro to the Book of Mormon! We will see how that goes! We got to go on exchanges last week with the Zone Leaders! It is a little nerve wracking when the Zone Leader comes to your area and you are in charge the whole day. But it was a lot of fun and I learned a lot from Elder Bracken. When we were on exchanges we had a lesson with a new investigator named Curtis. He basically told us that he was there to learn and wanted to know what our message was! It was really good and I thought the spirit was super strong. Hopefully we can meet with him this week too and get him to church. It is crazy to me to think that September is already here and that I have been here for almost 4 months. Time flies when you teach the Gospel! Sunday was really good. The whole church block was all about protecting our homes. It was really cool! And the spirit was there as well. Yesterday we got to take the Manazno Sisters on a tour of Belen. They cover the whole stake so they were down here for the day and we introduced them to some of the YSA people that we knew. It was a good day. I know this email is short but I am out of time! Love you all!!

Quotes of the Week:

"Choosing not to decide is deciding."
"Let God's promises shine on your problems."
"The only thing fear fears is love."

Spiritual Experience of the Week:

Before church on Sunday I decided to say a specific prayer for one of the members of my district. I fasted and went to church. Right at the end of church I got the answer I had prayed for! The spirit testified to me that I had received my answer. It was an amazing experience and helped me to grow my testimony of this gospel. I know that it is true.

Love you all!!!

Elder Carruth
