Another week in the life of Elder Smith

Hello! How is everyone doing this week? I'm sure things are just grand. They are here! We received another companion on Wednesday this past week. He was in my zone back when I was in Fairhope my last transfer there. His name is Elder Owens and he'll be here until transfers at least! We have already made good use of him. It has given us the opportunity to split up if a member is available. We did that last night and were able to teach 9 different families in the course of 6 hours! We needed it too because both Elder Owens and I had been under the weather for the week. But no worries, I got some medicine and am feeling spectacular!
We were successful this week at getting back in contact with some of our investigators that dropped off the face of the earth. What a relief! They had been so prepared and yet went so cold all at once, it was a bit concerning. But! We still have got hope. We have an investigator who is prime and ready to be baptized, we can feel it! A few have said that they are waiting on an answer that the Book of Mormon is true and will be ready to go. Awesome, right?!
It's been a great preparation day thus far. We again played disc golf with the zone leaders,and we found 3 discs between all of us! I had my very first fish fry on Saturday. That was loads of fun! We also were able to get up with many people we'd never met before, which is always just great!
Zone training was a fantastic experience as well. I definitely felt the Spirit, felt as though I received very personal revelation on what it was that I needed to do to bless people's lives here. The trick now is applying it, and becoming powerful in it! But I have faith that we will get it.
That is about all I have for you this week! I love and care for each of you all.  Have a great week! :)
