OSU Finals Week

So this week is finals for Oregon State University and last week was dead week. It definitely has slowed the work down, but we still have seen some awesome miracles. It has been a interesting time, a good amount of the people we are teaching are going home for the summer so are teaching pool has significantly dropped, and the ones who are staying have not been able to meet because they are busy with finals. So this week has consisted of a lot of tracting, and a lot of visiting less actives in the family ward (Philomath.) At the start of the week tracting was pretty rough, we tracted a ton tues- thurs and we did not get a single investigator or even potential investigator. 

We met so many people who seemed interested and we would teach them a little and commit them to read a pamphlet or the BOM and then we would ask if we would could come back and see how it went and teach a little more, and they would say how they would but they are going home in a week and were super busy up till then. It was kinda frustrating, and it seemed like there was almost no point to tracting but we knew its what we were suppose to be doing. and then on Friday, Saturday and Sunday we had awesome tracting, It seemed like everyone we talked to was not leaving for the summer, and we even had two people let us come in their apartment and teach them on first contact, which is really rare. It definitely was a testimony builder for me that the reward does come after the trial of our faith and that if we do all we can we will be blessed. 

Alex is doing awesome, we had a lesson with him at the church and he was just on fire. He said that there has been a drastic change in his feelings and attitude since his baptism. He talked about how there had been sometimes during the week when he just felt super peaceful during times that he usually feel really down or stressed out. He knows that he has received the gift of the Holy Ghost and it has made a real change in him. It is so amazing watching people change, there is no way i could deny that there is a real change in people after they are baptized and confirmed. its incredible. That's all the time I have for today, I love you all.
