Sorry I didn´t write yall on Monday, I was in a leadership meeting and did not have time. But I am writing now. This last week was interesting and one of growth. We had the opportunity to finally have a solid week of work in the area and the results showed because of it. We were able to teach many people and leave with many members. We had a two-member division like 3 or 4 times last week and were able to visit a bunch of people. My companion knows how to teach extremely well and is very confident in his abilities. We will baptize on Sunday! Woohoo! We reactivated a family that had been sealed in the temple but went away from the church a couple of years ago. We have helped bring them back to church and stop working on Sundays and there son will be baptized at 4 with all his member and non-member family in attendance. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to go on a division to an area that is struggling in our zone. He stayed with the Senior companion there. He had not been doing his contacts, lessons, or new investigators and I went there to find out why. He knows how to work well and we were able to mark 4 baptims, find 5 news, and mark 6 people for church in the course of a couple of hours. I showed him why we need to work and how we can do it. I love being able to help others realize their potential. We also had some interesting encounters. One person we marked to visit tried to avoid us by turning her head and looking off into the horizon when we saw her sitting in a chair in the front. We just stood there looking at the same point to make it awkward. Then we taught her. All the members think I have high blood pressure because of a faulty blood test I did. So now we are eating like rabbits. That´s a good thing, however, because I had some blockage problems recently. I haven´t been drinking as much water as I should so things have been a little drier to say the least. Then I started feeling a extreme pain in my stomach after lunch so President order me to go to the Doctor. They did an X-Ray and discovered that my large intestine was so stuffed up that I had a gas pocket that couldn´t escape which was causing pressure. A couple Lax and I was good to go. I feel more and more each day the presence of God in my life and less and less desire to sin and do anything contrary to his will. I know that I am doing the work of the Lord and know that anyone can recieve the same testimony I have. I love you all. Come on really, Elder Healy P.S. Go Warriors!
