Breath it in!

Well this week I learned just how great the country smells. It smells greatly of pigs and chicken! And boy can it get pretty smelly! Thank goodness it's not always that way. But when you're driving down the country road enjoying the smell of the air and then you get hit by a pig farm, the smell just doesn't leave your nose. Gotta love the country! :D

But seriously I do love the country! The people out here are great! We had stake conference yesterday in Wilmington which is a beach city, and it hardly changed a thing. I saw some of the biggest beards I've ever seen, and heard some of the greatest accents! The highlight of Stake Conference though was that we were able to get one of our less actives there, and before we left to go back home we got him to say a prayer for us! He has not prayed for us the whole time talking to him. And he's proud of it haha. But a member invited him to pray and he laughed, but did it! 
The investigator that we are teaching right now is named Yuni. She has been taught for a long time by missionaries and is struggling to understand why she needs to be baptized again. They live out of the branch boundaries so it's a bit of a drive. But since they are spanish speakers we go and teach them. 

One of the big highlights of the week was that we were able to make a few great contacts. In the country it's harder to talk to everyone when they are spread out and at work. So we were super excited to talk to them! We have a potential family to teach that has been taught some of the lessons before, and there are at least 11 people in the home. We are praying to be able to teach them!

One thing that I have been loving this past week has been our studies! I have had some great studies on prayer and how we must exercise our faith as we pray. Take the time this week to analize your prayers! Preach My Gosple by the way has a great way to do that in chapter 5 :)
Prayer is such an essential thing in our life, and the more connected we feel to our Father the more we progress in our lives.

I love yall so much! Congratulations Catherine!!!! :D
