Well this has been a crazy week here. Elder Liston got transferred and now I am serving here with Elder Mills. He is super awesome. He is from Bakersfield, CA. He has been out for 8 months now. He is super energetic and a great missionary so I am excited to be serving with him.
We picked up a new investigator named Nicole this week. She was sitting on her porch so we went and talked to her. She is super cool and really open to what he have to teach. She said in made so much sense that God would still talk to his children and still call prophets for us today. She was super excited to read the Book of Mormon and we will be seeing her again this week. We have been able have so many experiences of being able to see Heavenly Father put people in our path to talk to. I have seen that if stop and actually look we can see so many moments where Heavenly Father is a part of our lives. No matter how big or small it may be. I was grateful for this when Thursday rolled around... 

So Thursday was probably one of the craziest days of my mission. So we have had a clogged drain in our kitchen for a while now and we have tried everything to get it out. We finally thought we had it fixed when we got a snake and pulled out a huge glob of gross stuff. But we tried doing the dishes right after and it was still clogged. Well while we were studying we hear this gurgling noise coming from the sink. We were pretty sure that sinks didn't make that sound so we went in to check it out. When we looked in the sink was filling up with with dark brown moldy water(we had no water running in the house)!! It stopped right at the top of the sink so Elder Mills and I started scooping out the water with cups, dumped it in buckets and then we would dump it outside. We were making really good progress but then it came back with a vengeance. Water started filling up the sink at a rapid pace. Elder Mills and I were scooping as fast as we could, but it was all in vain. The water filled up over the sink and poured all over our kitchen floor. So our land lord called a plumber and now it is all good. Later on Elder Mills ripped two pairs of pants and a dog peed on my shoe. But the awesome thing was throughout the day we met a couple people who were prepared to be taught at this time. Miracles happen every day, even on our worst ones. He is a part of everything we do and loves us more then we could ever know. I am grateful for the hope that I have and will always have because of the love of Jesus Christ. I know He lives. Have a great week everyone, and if your sink gurgles on you, grab the biggest bucket you can find.
