Happy President's Day!!

So I didn't get to email until today because of President's Day. So this week was pretty good. We were able to find a couple more people to teach. We found Cassandra and Genesis. They are super cool. Cassandra just turned 23 and we stopped by (unknowingly) at her birthday party. We taught them the first part of the Restoration, and they liked what we were talking about. We are going to go back and finish the last part of the Restoration with them this wee.

We went on exchanges this week and I was with Elder Jones and Elder Baum. Elder Jone is in Temescal Valley, and Elder Baum is in the Spanish ward. They are both super fun guys. Elder Baum is from Tooele, Ut and Elder Jones is from Alabama. When I was with Elder Baum I almost fell asleep in all of the lessons because I didn't know anything that they were saying. Going Spanish for the day is fun though.

Not a whole lot of other things happen this week, but when we were street contacting yesterday we were talking to a woman, and all of the sudden her niece just fell down and started having a seizure. I guess that it happens pretty regularly because she has a mental problem, and it happens when she is too excited or too sad. But, she came right out of it! I was very shocked. I had no idea what to do, but they all knew what to do.

We also met with Eddy, and we taught him the first part of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He liked it al lot and we set up a ride for him to come to church. When Sunday came around, we were on our way to get him, and he texted us and told us that he was going to another church with his friend. So, he didn't come to our church again. But, hopefully we can stress that he needs to come to our church to know if it is true. He says that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, but he hasn't ready hardly any of it. It is frustrating to teach him because he says that he want to be baptized and he says that he knows that it is true, but he won't come to church or read the Book of Mormon! We might have to pause him because he won't keep his commitments. Hopefully, he will start coming to church more regularly.

I hope that this week we can continue to find more people and that we can find someone that is willing to keep their commitments.

So, the "Huge Storm" that kept us in our apartment an entire day, turned out to be just a little rain. We have gotten more rain before, and had to stay out and work in it all day. It was super boring. No flooding really happened that was predicted either. A couple of weeks ago there were some mud slides, but they weren't that bad either. I love the rain, but it kinda sucks for missionary work because we have to tract and nobody is really in a good mood to talk when it rains.

Not much else has been happening here. I hope all of you have a great week.

Love you,
Elder Braunstadter
