So many blessings!!

We've been so blessed this week. The work has been hard and it seems as though every ounce of opposition that the devil can muster against us has been thrown at us from every direction, even some members. For a while we were really down but the best part about being a missionary is you’re are entitled to Revelation, and we received, and we killed it this week! We found so many people to teach in amazing ways. We were tracting down in the boondock and found this old shed and decided to try it, Ray Tyler 25-year-old guy and his 2 daughters were there. He explained how he thought God had abandoned him and didn't know whether to "try Jesus" or the medicine man. We explained to him the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the simplicity, power and beauty it possesses to save all of Gods children who come unto His Son. Oh my goodness that room was filled with the Holy Ghost and I physical watched the Light of Christ, which had been dormant for so long, fill his soul with peace. He had so many questions and even tried praying for his first time ever without using corn pollen or peyote or was so cool!

Rufus Billy, our investigator who was on date for the 31st got really sick and ended up in the hospital, he's probably going to have to be pushed back to a later date to make sure he's ready for the Baptismal covenant. We were able to serve him a lot though! Wood…it is like everything here, it's the main source of welfare and if a person like totally hates you and wants to kill you, all you have to say is "can we chop some wood for you?" BAM! They love us, hearts are softened and it leaves room for a discussion...It's kind of weird going tracting with a maul and an axe, but man it works!!! The Gospel is true and I know in time, the entire Navajo Nation will blossom like a's just gonna take a lot of choppin woods;)
