I love missionary work.

This week was really good. We had some cool miracles. We found a lot more new people we're teaching! It's been great. Unfortunately we're not teaching Ray anymore. He called us the other morning and he has a lot of health problems right now and I don't know why but he said he doesn't want us to come by anymore. It's really sad when people we love so much don't receive the blessings that we know they're get from this gospel. There was so much good in the week though it was impossible to stay sad from things like that long at all. We were able to serve a lot--we helped a less-active put in tile in his living room (we're now "professionals" at spreading the mastic to lay the tiles on haha), we also got to help a family move, they're really awesome. We're excited to start teaching them. I love missionary work. 
We had a cool experience the other day. We were going to an appointment we had set up and we were meeting a member at the complex of the person we were going to go see and the member was pretty late and while we were waiting at the front by the gate where the cars come in a guy pulled up by us and rolled down his window and said, "Hey are y'all from the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints?" We talked to him and he told us to come over to his apartment. We went over when the member got there and had a great lesson. When we started teaching about how the church was lost from the earth after the death of the apostles and leaders of the church he said, "it was kind of like a big apostasy then?" (i haven't met anyone before that knew what an apostasy was). He's really solid. We're going to go see him this week. 
Well I gotta get going. I love y'all. Have a good week!
