This was a fun week! It's still hot and humid and I'm feeling for my brothas down in the south because it's probably hotter and more humid there.... Count your blessings! We did a lot of biking this week and I probably lost 5 pounds just this week, btw I officially weigh less than when I came out for the first time my whole mission dang haha! But I'm still not in good shape #missionprobs. Also everyone out here has turned into robots, literally everywhere you go there are groups of people walking around with their faces glued to their phones playing Pokémon Go haha it's hilarious!

All week long we struggled to find people to teach, it seemed like all of our appointments with potentials were falling through and many of our other finding efforts seemed to be fruitless so that was pretty frustrating but on Sunday after church we went to our Mini Zion to go round up all the people that we have been building friendships with in the past couple weeks and we picked up 2 new investigators there from it! Super pumped! Their names are Chucky and Janice and they are both super cool. They both have very strong testimonies about how God exists because they both used to suffer from really bad drug addictions and couldn't give them up no matter what they tried until they both prayed and asked for help, they have both been clean for 25 years! Also we have been teaching a man named Pedro and he is way solid! The Book of Mormon has answered a ton of questions that he has had about religion already so he is way stoked about reading it! Also we put our investigators Josh and Jess on date for baptism on August 27 so we're pretty pumped about that! The work has been picking up for sure lately!

Some members of the ward here volunteered us to help move their neighbors who aren't members so we went and helped them on Saturday and they were way cool! Their names are Chris and Megan and ironically enough, Chris' first cousin is none other than Jimmer Freddette!! Super crazy! For those of you who don't know who that is, he is in the NBA and he played for BYU and got the NCAA player of the year for basketball. But the best part about this all is that they want us to come back and teach them!

Transfer call-outs were this week and we found out that Elder Chester is getting transferred up to Pennsylvania and I am going to be training a new missionary here in Walkersville. Also another set of sister missionaries got moved into our district so now there are 3 sets of sisters and 1 set of elders (us) in my district. #ReliefSociety

Have a good week!!!
