Sometimes people think we are crazy

Hey Everyone!
What a busy one it sounds like you guys had! Wow! That's a good thing though! It keeps you on your toes and constantly wanting to serve others. I'm sure that service you guys have been rendering has been something pretty special and actually pretty fun! I'm glad you guys get to find time to do things like that. It makes me feel so good when I'm able to read about how busy you've all been and how much you've been helping with the Church and the community and stuff. You're all doing so awesome! I can tell! I'm sure Elder Morgan's parents will absolutely love the chips and salsa! Last week I told him about you guys going to visit him and he said they'll LOVE IT SO MUCH! They love talking to people who have been his son's companions...hey kinda like you guys! I hope you guys have a great time and send our regards! I'm happy to hear that everything will still work out with the wedding and all the family coming up though! That's something that I'm REALLY looking forward to! FOR SURE! Oh boy, my week was so legit! Sunday we had such a sweet Ward Find, and a bunch of members were willing to sacrfice like 3 hours to come help us find! It was so cool! Elder Morgan and I love the support we're getting from this Ward! It really does make all the difference to missionaries and it affects their mission SO MUCH! We've also been very blessed to be able to teach so much on the street! We'll start talking to someone and then do the walk of faith (tell them we want to sit down on a nearby bench, tell them to follow you, and don't look back). Oh man, it works everytime! The way Heavenly Father works and prepares His children is honestly beyond my comprehension. We've been teaching so much on the street lately and getting so many new investigators from it! Elder Morgan is SO POWERFUL! Oh man, he's just killin it out here! It's pretty funny too because sometimes, no actually ALL THE TIME, we'll be having opening and closing prayers on this super busy street and there will be people just to stop and watch and stare. You can only imagine what's going on inside their head! Ha! 'What weird people!' There's only one way to really find those prepared on the street, and that's to REALLY teach them, including prayers, commitments, doctrine shared, and rescheduling. Boy, it sure works though! We've been so blessed to see some pretty awesome progressing investigators come through the woodwork from a simple lesson on the street that sparks their interest just enough to have them see us a second time, come back to the church, and feel the spirit EVEN MORE! What a privilege it is to see such a thing! I love this work and I love everything about it! I never want to stop! I never will stop! I wish you all my best and hope and pray you have an incredible week! I love you and I care for you, each and every one. Thank you for your support and your prayers. Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY Grandpa Grover and Adrienne! I wish you both the best of wishes this coming Monday! Stay strong, stay healthy, and HAVE A HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!
Love Always-
Elder Carey
