Hey everyone!! This week was a great one! Well I don't know if it was too good of one for Elder Hoyt. He sprained his ankle about a week ago and we took him in to get it checked out. They said he got a 3 degree sprain and that he tore all of the ligaments in his ankle. So yeah he got it pretty good. The really funny part is that he injured it trying to do some flying Irish heel click thing! I keep telling him it is hard to feel bad for him when he injured it like that, it was just too funny! Just kidding I do feel bad for him but he isn't letting him slow him down which is great! He is a great missionary and I am grateful for his example.
So on Monday we went fishing... and I almost caught a lot of fish! They got lucky this time. We were out there fishing when out of nowhere it started POURING!! But we had a great week. We have been struggling to find people this month but that is okay because I know that we are doing all we can and the Lord will bless us. We have appointments set up for next week so it will all be good. Hopefully I can learn how to use a computer next week and figure out how to email. Have a great week.

The highlight of this week was definitely General Conference! Ahh man I loved it so much. All of the talks were amazing and I was able to feel the Spirit very strongly for the last two days. I loved how a lot of the talks seem to be centred on us having our foundation in Christ. Hardships and trials are going to come in our lives, I can promise you that. But I can also promise you that when those storms of life come, if our foundation is built upon Christ, we will not fall. That is a guarantee . He is there for us at all times and I am so grateful for the Strength that comes because of him. On our own we might not be able to make it, but he hasn't asked us to do it on our own. We have Him every step of the way.
This week has some awesome things happen as well. On Thursday I was on exchanges with Elder Miller. I loved serving with him for the day. We are really similar and he wants to work hard so that was awesome serving with him. The funny part was that this awesome family in the ward planned and Easter Egg hunt for us that day and Elder Hoyt was in a different area haha. So he missed out on that one. He was pretty Jealous which I had to remind him is against the commandments haha. Later on we were able to teach Josh. He is doing awesome still. He said he has felt the presence of the Holy Ghost with him throughout the whole week! He has noticed it's preasence in his life already which is super awesome. He even volunteered to go on splits with us the next day. He was excited every time we saw some one and was ready to talk to them and give them Book of Mormons and everything! And he has only been baptized a week. Man what a great example.
Thank you everyone for the examples that you are. I hope that you were all able to have an awesome Easter. Have a good one.
