Well I'm not really sure where the week went... I don't even remember hardly a single thing we did this week. Last P-Day we did make some pretty sweet hunting knives with Angus Wright out of some railroad spikes. That was a pretty great time. Oh and we taught FHE at President Bartlett's home and it was super fun and went really well. We taught about Prophets and played a little game with them and their 5 kids. 
This week we were able to contact a less-active Spanish guy in our ward. He just got back from his mission like 3 years ago. Now he is going to come with us to go teach one of our investigators (also a Spanish guy) this week so I am super excited for that. Hopefully our less-active ward member will feel the spirit so strong that he starts coming back to church. That would really be a huge miracle and I'm praying my heart out for it. 
We've been having a pretty tough time finding new investigators lately. We've been asking for referrals and street contacting and contacted less-active and part-member families and we just aren't getting anything. But sometime along the way all our hard work will pay off. We have quite a few potential investigators who just aren't quite to the point of being taught yet.
There is a family in Jamesport that came in contact with the missionaries in Gallatin. The family even went to church in Gallatin with those missionaries. The problem is that they live in our area so now we have to try to get them to develop friendships with the members over here and come to church here in Trenton which is almost 20 miles further away from them than the Gallatin building is. Sometimes ward boundaries are just really annoying. But anyways, we will be working with them starting this week so I am looking forward to that.
 While I've been out in the boondocks I've been able to see a lot of super pretty country. It's been making me think of a scripture in Alma 30:44 which says "...all things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it..." I know that our Heavenly Father created this world for us as a place for us to grow and to learn and gain experience and as a place for us to develop eternal family relationships. Everything around us is truly a testament that our God loves us. He has blessed us with so many beautiful things in our lives all for the sole purpose of providing us with joy and happiness.
Well that's it for the week folks. Make it a great week! I love you!
