Ya'at'eeh! This has been one of the busiest weeks of my mission! It has been a roller coaster of time and health but we still managed to have an astounding 21 lessons with some of the coolest people here in Many Farms! I had a stomach ache on Wednesday but that went away pretty quick. Saturday morning I had another stomach ache from most likely food poisoning that just about knocked me out for 2 hours. I'll admit I didn't have fun being sick but the fact that both times I got better in a matter of hours is a great miracle! The rest of the week was absolutely fantastic! Last Monday we were able to have Family Home Night at Bishops house and they invited an investigator to join. She had fun and we are hoping good things will come from it. Tuesday just about everyone we had planed to see was home and then we were able to have dinner with Bishop that evening. That is when we found out that President Batt and his wife met with the President of the Navajo Nation and told him that the Book of Mormon would change the Navajo Nation. He took it pretty well and it turns out that the he is a Less active member of the Church who was Baptized a long time ago. President was very bold with him and to hear about it from President during interviews on Wednesday it sounded really cool! Wednesday we had interviews with President Batt and it was great to talk to him. He had allot of helpful advice that was great for not only our area but with training as well. Very friendly and lovable guy and His wife is just as nice! We got to practice teaching with Sister Batt and that was a very spiritual experience as well! Before we left President and Sister Batt told us that we were the two most enthusiastic missionaries they had seen and that they love the way we teach! On Thursday we had an awesome District meeting and even though Elder Rushton was recovering from a cold he did a great job! He is a great motivator to the District and we definitely look up to him. So as you can see we were a little limited on time for proceliting this week with all that was going on. That is why it is so cool that we were able to get so much done in the time that we had! Saturday was super windy and there was dust flying everywhere! The trailer was shaking and it was impossible to walk around. Elder Sorensen and I ate sand all day so we are good on fiber for our diet for a while haha! Yesterday Elder and Sister Anderson gave really good talks on member missionary work in Sacrament meeting and everyone was exited to be a missionary after. At the end of the day we totaled our numbers to call in and report and we couldn't believe all the good that has come out of this week. We were able to get so much done it was amazing! It was not only the most lessons we have ever had but almost half of them were with Investigators! Just another testimony builder that this is not our work and no mater what happens; God is going to accomplish what needs to happen here in Many Farms. In the end it all works out perfectly. Thank you for you emails and thank you for your updates in the letters you all send. Don’t stop smiling and I will talk to you next Monday!
This morning, Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly met with President Doyle Batt, Sister Batt, Elder Lin and Elder Nisimoto of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints regarding the growth and expansion of the LDS Church on the Navajo Nation.

(about last week's picture) We slid off the road into the puddle lol all of that mud is clay and it is like driving on ice :P The mud tracks would have worked but they are not meant for clay so they were buried under the mud. Washed them off though and they are ready to go for the next time nature decides to hate us haha.
