Dropped... but wait!!

Well this week was great but super crazy!! We had the transfer call on
Saturday night already. I can't believe how fast time has been going!!
I get to say, but sadly Elder Robinson took off! There used to be four
Elders here in the area, but now that elder Robinson is gone and one
of the other Elders is going home this week me and the other elder
staying will be in the area still. But we are over all three American
wards... which is a lot! Sundays are going to be crazy and so are the
weeks! We are a little nervous to see how it's all going to work out,
but we are excited to get to know and work with so many people!! The
wards here are awesome and very helpful, so it shouldn't be a big
deal!

Also this week, we were dropped by one of our investigators. Not the
one with the tattoo of Mosiah 24:14 on his arm, but another one that
was actually progressing very well! He struggled a lot with faith and
finding that desire to keep looking for his answers through prayer and
scripture study, but we are still going to stay in contact with him
for now. As for the tattooed investigator, he just got back from
vacation and work and then he got a little sick so we weren't able to
see him for a couple weeks. Well we saw him yesterday and got to talk
to him a little bit! He's doing really well and wants to keep meeting
with us. He is really stressed and trying his hardest to keep studying
in the scriptures and pray.

Well besides all that, my new companion and I are workin hard to get
our potentials into investigators! My companion is Elder Forsey and he
is from Logan Utah. Surprisingly he is only my second companion that's
from Utah! I was on a streak for a while, but it's nice to be able to
talk about the best place on earth with him! ;) well that's about all
the exciting news for the week! I hope everyone knows how awesome and
forgiving our Heavenly Father is. He is always willing to work with us
and always willing to listen to our prayers! I hope that everyone will
be able to not blame Him for our trails, but instead that you will
come to Him in humble prayer because of your trails. He loves us and
wants the best for us. He is constantly blessing us every day, and the
blessings won't stop because we are doing something bad, but we just
gotta try a little harder to be a little better to receive all the
blessings possible. It's simple: be good, receive blessings, be
better, receive more blessings!

Hope you all have a great one!!

Elder Rogers
