Hello everyone,

I heard Kyle got home this week. I can't believe that he is already home. These two years don't seem like two years at all.

Elder Hernando and I are working really well together. This week we have been working really hard on just finding good people to teach which sometimes goes really good, and other times not so good. We found a lot of people this last week and we are excited for a lot of them.

Sometimes I wonder how people don't realize this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ. When we teach, we teach so simply that a child could understand. The spirit and scriptures also testify to the investigators that what we are teaching is true, but sometimes they still reject it and say "we don't need a prophet" or "it doesn't matter, as long as you say you believe."

Despite some of those set backs, we have high hopes for this area and the people here; we are doing all we can to move this work forward. We have had a lot of success this week. We have found a few families who are struggling because they don't have the gospel in their life; however, we found a doctor who realizes the importance of a living prophet.

One of the most exciting people we found is someone who may be related to my companion, Elder Hernando. We are still waiting for his parents to write and confirm it, but I don't think it was a coincidence that the Lord sent him to this area and we found this lady his first day here. Overall, it's been a great week and I'm really excited to see how it turns out this coming week.

Love, Elder Smith
