Hello,

This week was pretty rough. We had a lot of appointments fall through, and we did not get to meet with a lot of people. We did teach Eddy a couple of times this week, but he was not able to come to church. We talked about his desire and why he wants to meet with us, and he showed some real desire. Hopefully, he is truly meaning what he is saying. We also taught the Word of Wisdom, and he has a pretty big problem with coffee. He said that it is the only thing that he can use to wake him up. We tried suggesting some substitutes, but he said that they won't work. We have been trying to find out if he really wants to be part of the church, but he is pretty hard to get a good feel of. He commits to everything, but he doesn't really keep his commitments. We have also been trying to get a member to come out with us, but it is hard. He can only meet at 3:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Hopefully, we can get someone out with us this week.

We also met with a guy named Jeff. He is pretty cool, and he shows some real intent on learning more about the Gospel. He is a high school teacher, and he doesn't really have a relationship with God, but he said that he wants to. Elder Mayo and I were on exchanges when we taught him, so that was fun. Elder Mayo shared a really cool experience that strengthened his testimony, and Jeff had a lot of questions about the Plan of Salvation. We left him with a pamphlet and said that we will talk about it next week. He seems super interested, but I think that his wife will hold him back because she is a strong Catholic. Hopefully, everything will turn out good with them!

Unfortunately, we were not able to meet with anyone else, because they were all busy. Hopefully, this week we will be able to do more!

The weather here is ridiculous! It was in the high 80's, and is supposed to get hotter this week. It is supposed to be in the 90's! Hopefully, I won't melt too much!!!

I hope you all have a fantastic week.

Love,
Elder Braunstadter
