Happy Monday!

We went on exchanges with the Assistants this past Wednesday which is always a good time. I got to go out with Elder King and we had a lot of fun teaching together. We talked with everyone we came across so we had some really positive responses and some awkward moments as well haha. It's all part of the job.

We also had interviews with President and I always love getting a little bit of time with President and Sister Loveland. We talked a lot about the zone and they said that there is a lot of potential that is coming out and that's always something you want to hear.

Really cool experience! So we got a media referral this past week for a couple named Harley and Autumn and here is their story. Harley just got out a prison a couple weeks ago and while he was there, there was a member in that he became really close friends with. He realized that every single night before this guy would go to bed, he would pray and then read this book and he got super curious. When he asked him about it, the member started teaching him about the Book of Mormon and about the church. We got referred to him when he got out and we met him and have had 2 lessons with him already. He is awesome! He has committed to be baptized in December so we will see how things work out. He's all about change and his wife is semi interested but she'll come around sometime. I'm really excited to keep teaching him. Really great guy!

Also, George came to church again this past Sunday. He has been reading a lot and he had tons of questions. He had quite a few on the Word of Wisdom and we answered all of them and he was super satisfied with everything we taught. He told us that when he was 18 he was a body guard for Ludacris but quit. He said he was happy he quit cause if he didn't, he would have never found the church and met us. Super stoked about him. We are meeting up on Friday and that should be good!

A lot of blessings have been poured out on us this week. I know that as we recognize the blessings in our life, the happier we are. If you are not happy, give a prayer of pure thanks and then go on with your day. I promise it will change your outlook. I love y'all and hope all is well!
