This week was pretty good though. One day was kinda freaky. One of our investigators has 5 demons that have possessed him and when we were discussing getting rid of them in a lesson they really faught against him hard. He can see and hear them. But he has had them for years and they were physically hurting him and he could barely talk at points and was gurgling and had to run to the bathroom and spit up tons of crap and was hunched over in pain multiple times. It was insane. Its crazy how powerful Satan can be when you give him power over you. But we are safe so no worries. Nathan is doing well and is praying about baptism so we will see how that goes. The ward here is amazing though and they take amazing care of us. Having a great time here. Love you!

This week was great! Our investigator, Nathan, is doing really well and is getting closer to baptism. He's gone for a week at his ex step dads though who is totally anti mormon, so keep him in your prayers. But other than that he is super awesome. He is 15 and works so it's just a matter of getting work off on Sundays which will be the most difficult thing, and possibly quitting coffee.
Some members made us ribs and they were delicious! Just fell apart. Yummy!
But I'm being obedient and working hard. It's not worth it not to be. Things are going great with my new companion. He has read the Book of Mormon 10 times! Now that's impressive! He is a very hard worker so we make a great team! Did I tell you about how Elder Bennett told our mission we are the most obedient mission in the world??? Pretty cool stuff. The church headquarters called the mission this week to congratulate us on our obedience and change in driving since we have had the tiwis in our cars.

Things are going fantastic! My new companion, Elder Hall, is great! He's from Clinton, Utah. Super fun to work with and we get along well. He works hard too which is great. He's been out for 4 1/2 months.
Our area is doing good and one of our most progressing investigators currently is Nathan. His mother joined the church 3 years ago and is an amazing member (Sister Tara Reynolds.) And Nathan lives with her (parents are divorced) and he recently decided to start looking into the church. He is 15 and is so great! He is doing awesome and will totally join the church I'm sure.
I was made a District Leader and am being trained this week on how to do that. Exciting!
The Book of Mormon is so great! :) Love it and keep reading!

So I am staying in Kettering and my companion is leaving. Which I am indifferent about. It was nice because I have seen Elder Klingonsmith change so much and I feel I am going to be a lot more patient than some other Elders would be with the things he says. He can be very hurtful, a lot of the time, if I let it. It usually doesn't hurt my feelings very often but it has a couple times. So I'm really hoping he gets a companion he gets along well with and that can help him stay positive. But I have seen a lot of change in him which is good.
But I am excited cuz this area is really starting to come together and I'm PUMPED!!!
