This last week was really good! we were blessed with new people who quite possibly will become new investigators:) I hope we can get in with them all really soon! haha looks like all that tracting paid off....but not in the way we thought:) absolutely no people we tracted into were the least bit interested. One referral we got was a guy named Steve Nelson. His friend from Arizona actually called us and told us about Steve. He sounds like a mormon already so hopefully we can help him feel the spirit and realized what he is looking for. Funny story, I called him to set up and something and this is what he said:

"oh yeah, for sure, lets meet up, ill buy you guys some coffee! you drink coffee??"
"oh no, we don't drink coffee but thanks" 
"oh okay, yeah me either, its the worst. Never had a cup of it in my life. Actually thats a lie, I have tried it, but it was just.....have you tried it?" 
" yeah, but so can you meet tomorrow?" 

haha it was the best conversation ever. I love people:) Most of our investigators have fallen off the face of the earth and the only one we know about is moving so....yeah

We have one family that we are trying to reactivate. We were supposed to have a lesson so we came and knocked and they hid from us, its fine, but anyways bishop just showed up randomly to this lesson that wasnt happening. so when we were driving out of the neighborhood we passed him, and so instead of like using our phone to call him, we automatically kicked into stalker mode and followed him around the neighborhood to tell him they weren't answering the door.....that was awkward, but he invited us to dinner so maybe it wasn't as bad as we thought.....He is sorta awkward to begin with so maybe it was. 

We got to go to the temple this morning, so that was good! :) a member in our ward, Sister Elwess, took us down to Bismarck and we got to go through a session with her. It was great to get to go, and we had an amazing time. I will NEVER complain about having 50 million temples in Utah, it is such a blessing. Something we take for granted until the closest temple is 2 hours or more away. On our way back to Minot I got to see all of the Sunflowers in bloom out here! there are so many and I love it!:) It was basically the best day of my life;) 

Anyways i hope all is well at Home in good ol Cache Valley! Love and Miss you all:) 

Love Tay ( Sister A)
