good week/not quite as awesome, but good!

 dear family and friends
 so this week wasn't as awesome as last week but we had a lot of fun at zone conference and state conference. so I'll start from the beginning of the week so on Tuesday we had zone conference and that was really cool we focused on how we could overcome the lies of the adversary! and also how we need to make the gospel not just the check list but a what what we become from living it and how it has changed us not just that let's get it done list. And so that was really good. We also talked about how we can use our members better and how by just getting to know their friends not even teaching their friends will be able to talk to more people and will be able to have more contact with other people in that they will begin to have more interest in the church.
 and I also got to see to missionaries that went to Timpanogos while I was there their names are elder jacot and sister Anderson and so that was really cool. we also had a pretty good lesson with the Marten kids they're doing really well and we're going to start at working with their friends and try to talk to their friends about the gospel too so we're really excited for that they're really excited for that. William Marten said he wants to give his friend Book of Mormon and so we gave him one and he's really excited for that so we're going to ask them how that went this week. then nothing much happened on Wednesday but on Thursday we met this lady her name is Lindsay and we taught her the full restoration and she really liked it and said that she no it's God would not leave them alone and that she would give the people of the source new scripture not just old stuff but new stuff too! and so that went really well we couldn't meet with her on Saturday she wasn't home and on Sunday she wasn't feeling well so we're going to try her this week and try to get her to church so we're really excited for that. and not too much happen on Friday except weekly planning. then on Saturday not much happen either. but sunday was amazing so brother Corunna drove a to Kearney and we got to meet elder K. David Scott of the 70 and got the shake his hand and he talked a lot about making little changes in our life and to begin again today and then he talked also about this really cool things that I didn't really noticed until recently and it was that heavenly Father always gathers us together and Satan always separates us the for tears us apart. and that was just a big eye opener and he gave us a lot of examples of things in his life and our life that we can do to understand the gospel better. one of the ways he did that was telling one of the ways he did that was telling us a story about one time where he was going to go do something and they went downstairs and went through a whole bunch of rooms and right before he got to the room that he needs to go to he forgot why he was there and he did that 2 or 3 times and never remembered why he went down there and he related that to us coming down to this earth sometimes you get distracted where we can't remember why we're down here. And that was really cool too and then after a steak conference I saw two missionaries that I served around at the beginning of my mission and the middle of my mission.  so I first saw elder Goodwin and he now lives in Broken Bow which is in our stake  and it was really good to see him he has a beard now.  but the one that was really great to see was elder bair he was my eyes only either one I was in O'Neill and so we had a lot of fun and is great to see to see and talk to him and to meet his wife. And then we had another really cool miracle on Sunday night we met this lady named Ashley and we walk  up to her and she wasn't super interested she but she wants to learn more about other religions and that's really cool but then we asked her if we could share 5-minute restoration and she change her desire went up and she read the Book of Mormon and said that she'd be baptized if she knew that it was true and so we're going to go see her this next coming Sunday! so that was my week also this coming week is my birthday so email me because I'd love to get a bunch of emails but how you guys are doing and what's going on well I love you all

Happy Mother's Day and Miracles Galore

 dear family and friends
 so this week was a great week we got for new investigators and their names are Leo, Tanya, Dakota, and James.  so this week started off with on Tuesday we had another lesson with Leo and we read the Book of Mormon with him and he was kind of interested but not really paying attention but then he asked us a question that was just awesome he ask will I be able to see my wife again and we testified  to him that he can and we shared with him some scriptures that talk about that and then we invited him to read those scriptures on his own so that he could be able to learn about it himself and it was just really cool. then on Wednesday we went to go see less active member that we met the week before and we taught him and his wife and one of his sons about the restoration and and it went really well and we set her for baptism for June 6th and she said that she wants to be baptized and that she's willing and so we're really excited to work with Tanya and be able to help her do that also she is half death and so we're going to try to find someone who knows sign language to help her out with coming to church cuz she can read lips really well but it's just when it's far away it's hard for her and then on Friday my sinuses were acting up like crazy and I had 5 bloody noses one day and I had to change three white shirt in one day and so that sucked but is kind of funny. and on Sunday we talked to our families and that was lots of fun and I just wanted to say thank you to all the moms in my life especially my mother at DeeAnn Hall Brewster,  and also my mission mom's sister Taggart and sister Gardner they're awesome and also my drama mama Agnes Broburge  and also my stepmom Karen I think them for all that they have done for me and all that they have taught me and really how they have helped me become the man and missionary that I am today and so after our call home we went and tried some of our investigators to give them Mother's Day chocolate bars and none of them were home but we saw this man in a motorized wheelchair and we were prompted to go and talk to him and he was really nice and when we started talking about our message and about modern-day profits he agreed with it and really loved it and so that was just awesome and then we shared the Prince of Peace video and also give him a Book of Mormon and he said he'd read it and we're going to visit him this week and it was just awesome to see how humble he was and so that was our week it was a really fun week and I'm excited for this next one cuz I feel like the more and more I work them more miracles that will happen especially near the end of my mission so I'm really excited for that! so if you have any questions email me back and I will email you guys I love getting your email so please email me well have a great week!
