Week #98 O'er The land of The Free, and The Home of The Brave

Elder Rasmussen and Sister Garcia
Hey Mom and Dad! Glad you are having fun on your trip to Canada! Have fun and please be safe :)
We had a great week and man it went by quick. We had some really good key indicator numbers which means we had quite a few lessons and other stuff so that was good! I went on a split with Elder Naulu who is an American and we worked in his area. Every single lesson they had planned was a reject so we ended up tracting for like 5 hours which was tiring but we found some cool people including these 2 girls and some really well behaved kids. They are Catholic and very observant in their religion which isn't all that common here, but we had a really great lesson with them.
Sunday as usual turned out great for us. We worked with some members and taught 2 of our investigators one named R. who I have always struggled to feel the spirit while we teach him but this time was great and the Spirit led the lesson. Some members fed us and I was really hungry so I was especially appreciative of being fed . Our next lesson was with our new investigator who we just met last week named B. He is awesome. We have a great relationship with him and the Spirit is always there when we teach him. He's a big guy in his 40's and I did an arm wrestle with him and won the right hand but lost the left. I'm in horrible shape! He writes down notes, does his reading, and focuses while we teach. SO AWESOME. I've got a constant smile on my face while we teach him because I love the guy so much and we always hug him when we get there and also when we leave. Brother R. (ward mission leader) fed us dinner and that made us happy too. Too many blessings to count for one day! 
This morning was fun we played football in the park and sang the star spangled banner before we did it nice and loud to celebrate the 4th of July. Then we ate at a restaurant called American Legend and ate burgers and sang the Star Spangled Banner again in the restaurant. haha 2 years of being away from the best country in the world has made us a bit prouder than we were before :)
President Aquino went home last week so now president Cruz is here. I haven't met him yet but I hear he's a way cool guy.
That's about all this week! Love and Miss you lots! Love Michael Elder Rasmussen

Proud American <3
