You are not alone
"You are not alone on this journey. Your Heavenly Father knows you. Even when no one else hears you, He hears you. When you rejoice in righteousness, He rejoices with you. When you are beset with trial, He grieves with you...He sees you not as the world sees you; He sees who you really are. He looks on your heart. And He loves you, because you are His child...seek Him earnestly, and you will find Him" -Pres Uchtdorf

We saw some pretty amazing miracles this week!
Well this week has been Awesome!! Elder Johnson and I went on exchanges with the Assistants on Tuesday. Which was crazy because I went with Elder Englestead who is from Cedar City, Utah!! (For those who don't know it, Will's father, grandparents on both sides, great grandparents grew up in Cedar City, UT and he has multiple family members still living there. Will even lived there for about 5 years) He was also good friends with Ty!! (Ty is Will's cousin!) It was so crazy to find out that we knew a lot of the same people in Cedar! Anyways it was really cool to go on exchanges with him because he really taught me a lot and we both did something that really scared us which is store contacting. I know that sounds weird but its when you go into a store and you just talk to people, since we can't legally preach in a store we just talked to people and when they ask questions to us like why we had tags or something like that we could talk about who we are! That terrified me because I have only been kocking on D's and never have done any street contacting which is what store contacting is a lot like. It was really cool though because we founds someone at a Walmart and gave him a Book of Mormon. We do not have a lot of investigators but we do have four really solid ones. We just set a baptismal date with a girl names Carol who is the girlfriend of one of our other investigators Gary. It was a miracle that we set a date with her because we showed up to their place to teach Gary and he was not home so we asked it we could teach her and so we did! It was such a great lesson and we set a date for the 22nd of March. It did not stop there because we got a call from Gary and he told us that he was really surprised that she had committed to get baptized and he told us he wanted to work with her and get baptized with her! So we saw some pretty amazing miracles this week! Well I have to go and help someone move. Love, Elder Slack
