This week was great but also possibly sad. So our investigators next door, Jeremy and Autumn, were doing great, and were making so much change. Jeremy is Bryce and Jared's brother who were the owners of the apartment. So Jeremy isn't always the most responsible and is not smart with money. He wouldn't pay any rent so they chose to kick him out yesterday. And Nathan does not want to be baptised but may still be interested in learning  and trying to figure it out. But there goes our only progressing investigators and people we are really working with frequently that have shown change and whatnot. But other than that it's been a great week! 
Fun fact, I am now the zone hair cutter for all the Elders haha! Cracks me up hehe. ;) They better not make me mad. ;)
Anyways, I love you!
To all missionaries preparing to go on a mission... the key for calling down the grace of God is exercising complete Faith, Diligence, and Obedience. Not just obedience to the white handbook and preach my gospel but obedience to the spirit. Acting diligently upon every prompting that comes in to your heart and mind (D&C 8:2) whether big or small, while exercising faith, prayer, and fasting, allowing no doubt to enter into your mind. When the spirit says go, you go. Remember that these are Gods children and this is his work, not ours. Plead with God for the Charity necessary to see and love these amazing brothers and sisters as Christ does and put your whole heart, might, mind, and strength into the work (D&C 4) and you will be a successful missionary. I love you all and wish you the best of luck.
Also the key for working with companions is communication and humility.
