This week was a great week.  Elder Rush and I had a lot of success as we trusted in the Lord.  Wednesday night we had appointments booked the whole night.  We were so excited to go out and have a full night and see our recent convert and a few investigators.  Then, one canceled, then the next canceled, and finally the last one canceled.  We had no idea what we were going to do.  I was really frustrated that they canceled and dissappointed.  We proceeded to go out and try some investigators.  We went and knocked on the first door of one that we haven't been able to see in a long time and he answered and let us in and we had a powerful lesson.  And, then that happened again, and again.  What I learned from this is that sometimes we have plans.  And, sometimes they completely fall through.  Sometimes when this happens we get dissappointed like me.  But, instead of doing that, we should look to God and trust that he has greater plans.  Eternal plans that will benefit us eternally.  So, when our plans fall through, we should continue to press foward and have faith that it is part of God's plan for us. 

We were able to get in with Rodrick this week.  He is doing well.  He comes to church every Sunday.  We will continue to work with him and I know that he will eventually put in the effort and receive an answer.  We also got to see Deward!  He is doing really well.  He works a lot and is not able to meet with us very often, but we had a very powerful lesson with him and he is coming along well.  We also saw Juan and Anne.  They are doing great!  Juan told us that the next church he sets foot in is the one he will stay in.  And, they commited to come to church this week, so y'alls prayers for them would be much appreciated. 

Anyways, I am doing great and loving the weather as well as Elder Rush.  I Love y'all and hope y'all have a great week!
