Friends and Family

Wow. I really felt you prayers this week. We had a rough start. But things got a whole lot better when the weekend came! We fasted on Sunday and decided to go finding until we found a potential investigator or someone who was interested in hearing our message. So we did. And right as we were going to go home with no success, we saw a lady raking leaves and we decided to ask her if we could help. So we did. And later we realized that we had actually knocked on her door earlier and she wasn't interested. But she said we could help her. And she actually said that she had been praying for someone to help her because she has a bad back and we were an answer to her prayer. We talked about a lot of different things. And her religion came up and she said that she spoke in tongues. So of course, like my curious self I asked her more about it and asked her if she could do it for us... and she did... and it made me feel really gross and weird. AHA. We talked to her about what our belief is about the gift of tongues and how the Spanish missionaries in our ward have it and that the MTC is the fastest place to learn a language and she was really fascinated with that. So that was pretty interesting. But we went back the next day which was Saturday and finished the service we were doing and she said she wasn't interested in learning but she did give us her number and some cookies so we will stop in and see her again. Hopefully something can come from it. Later though, we went to see the Dutton's. brother Dutton doesn't come to church because of his MS and so we go and see him weekly. his son Cody is 17 and hasn't been baptized. But we had the chance to teach the Restoration really quickly to him and we invited him to be baptized and he said yes! So we now have an investigator! But it's going to take a lot of work to get his dad and his mother who was baptized a year and a half ago to church so that they can support Cody. Anyways, I really want you all to know that I love you so much. I pray for each of you.
I hope you know that. Things are looking up for elder Tanner and I. Transfers arenext Thursday so we will see if we still get to be together or what will happen! Keep your head up and keep pushing forward. i love you all. Stay warm. It snowed here yesterday and it's terrible!

Love Always,
Elder Caleb James Wardle
