We have been "fish'n for men" all week and havent had any success, but thats ok. I learned some valuable lessons on how to better follow the spirit when difficult situations arise. I know that when we need guidance God will help and provide for us if it be his will.

Other than that we went to do some service for a friend and built a pig pen for her. She had two pigs that we had to move. One of them was ptretty large and the other smaller. The small one I named Mjolnir, and the large one "Biscuit" ( I dont remember what I named the larger one.) Anyways I moved "Biscuit" and She screamed like I was about to lob her to her imminent demise. When We moved Mjolnir he was silent.  Mjolnir was clearly sick in my eyes, he was breathing heavy, ears drooped forward, head hanging low and breathing heavily, I wasn't sure if I wanted to move him since it could shock him to much moving him and putting him in a new area, but I wasnt sure if taking away his buddy would also stress him out. So after we moved them both we had the owner go and get some antibiotics for Mjolnir. Later Elder Crosland and I chopped a tree down and caught a squirrel! Then the neighbors shed caught on fire so Elder Hayes (A fire fighter) and Elder Reece went to go see if they could do anything to help while Elder Crosland and I finished off the tree with an ax. (SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF RANDOM STUFF TO THROW IN HUH?)  I almost forgot. Mjolnir died, we tried to help, Im not a pig doctor. RIP PIGGY MJOLNIR 

Thats about it friends hope you had a good week! love you guys
Whats up everyone! This week a couple of things happened this week. In preparation for a baptism that is coming up we went hunting for a guitar we could borrow for a special musical number that Elder Reece and I will be playing. The "HUNT" was unsuccessful and we found ourselves stuck in the other Elders area due to the timing of dinner. So for what ever time we had left we decided to go tracting in near by apartments. As we tracted the first few doors we did'nt get anything, however when we knocked the doors up a flight of stairs we met a man named James. We asked him if he had ever spoken with missionaries before, he said that he had! After Talking to him for a little while about his Job he invited us in and we had a great gospel conversation. James had explained to us that he was going to be moving soon, so I asked, "Where to?" He had told us that he would be moving to McCordsville in the Gateway apartments! (Which is where my companion and I just moved to.) We let him know that we would be happy to help him move when the time comes. He expressed his interest in coming to church and checking it out. So hopefully we can keep in contact with him. 
  Later on in the week we did a service project with a man named Jacob Scott. He is a really kind guy and invited us to help him clear the trees and logs in his neighbors yard while they were at work. We cranked it out in about 3 hours! Thus I sent a picture of us and the pile of wood, and the 400-500 lb log under our feet. It was a great time! By the way Jacob Scott is getting baptized may 25th! Please keep him and his family in your prayers! 

Other than that We have weird spiders hangin around waiting to strike and destroy any sense of security that we may have previously felt in our home. Then there is Elder Crosland waiting to attack anyone who tries to get to close to him after waking up from his slumber.  

I love you guys take care this week!!!

Letter for 8Mar17:

I've been trying to keep busy. This week we ate with our investigator Juniper and met her family and husband. We ate chili and played cards with there Oldest (ALEX age 6) and spoke with her about life in general and talked about church. Juniper Fed all 4 of us and will be coming to church this week.

As far as anything else goes, we have been knocking doors, went to check out our new area, and looked at what our new apartment is going to look like. We will be out in nowheresville. All it is out there is farm land. If you drive out towards meridian Idaho where there is just open fields and farm. its pretty much what it looks like. Its 15 miles or more of nothing in any direction. There are two small towns we will be working out of mainly. Mccordsville and Fortville. Its almost the equivalent of driving west on ustick till the farm lands.

I also called up Victoria our recent converts in white river and spoke with her for a bit! Ill send ya some pictures. Love you guys
