Patience Brings Good Things

The mission has been going pretty good this week!  A few weeks ago the brother of my president, Craig C. Christensen (a member of the presidency of the seventy) came and spoke to us.  It was a really cool experience.  He also gave a really good talk during priestood sesson of last conference.  We dont really get so see the president very often.  Only really in big meetings or if we go to the offices and he is there.  But lately we have been getting alot of counsel from him on obedience because i guess there is quite a few missionaries who arent super obedient. 
Elder Calder is super great!  He is a really good missionary and super obedient.  I especially like how he is always making sure that we are using our time wisely and doint the things that we need to be doing the most.  
We are definitely encouraged to always be looking for opportunities to serve.  A few days ago we help this less active family dig a really really deep hole on their property so that they can put in a septic tank thing.  Ill send a couple pics of that.  
A couple days ago, after a long day of a lot of fallen appointments, me and my comp were just standing in the street trying to think of what we should do and after a few minutes of that this lady with short, pink hair came up to us and asked us what we were doing.  So we just told her that we were thinking of where we should go and that we are missionaries.  Then she was like oh well my husband is home right now and i just have to do something really quick and then ill be there too and if you guys want to can come over.  So we were like yeah that would be great, we'll come over in about 30 minutes!  So a bit later we came over, they were actually there, they fed us some stuff and we taught lesson 1.  The lesson went super well and they accepted everying including baptism!  I think they could do really good.  They werent able to come to church yesterday because of a vacation thing but they said they would come next week.  Their names are Edwin and Maria.  So it's cool how if you are patient and always doing the things you should be doing Heavenly Father will always bless you with good things. 
Well thats pretty much it for now!
