So just to clarify for everyone, I am still a Ute fan through and through. That can never be taken from me.
We haven't had any success with Rommel or Michael for the last month. It's kinda gotten me down about it. But yesterday we had a miracle happen. So Gavin, Alyssa's son (she has the cancer), came to church with us!!!! (We have been playing basketball with him every couple of days for the last week and a half because he just has needed some support due to the fact that he is stuck inside all the time so we have been sorta friends with him of late.) But we asked him if he wanted to come to church and he was ok with coming and his mom said it was ok!! I can't even explain how huge that is. So he came and the youth completely pulled him in. He sat with us during sacrament meeting and then the second it was over there were like 3 kids talking to him and inviting him to come to class with them. They did the same thing for priesthood too. He came up to us after and said that he wants to get a set of scriptures and church clothes and come next week!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then later that night he called us to tell us that they found a place that some random lady gave them to live in for free!! They are being kicked out of where they are now by stupid attorneys. This random lady also said that she would help Don find work to help support Gavin. Gavin told us that if we have been praying, it totally worked. We told him that is was probs cause he came to church... he just kinda went "Oh I didn't even think of that!" It was so cool though!Literally, that's like the only thing I can think of from the last week cause it has made me so happy!To answer some of your questions: we do get money for food - that's all our money should be used for. That and like hygiene stuff. The mission pays for our phones and apartments.Sorry this week's email is short. I really can't think of anything else to write cause it has been so slow lately. But know that I am loving the work and love you all so so so so so much!
