On Friday, we weekly planned and tracted and on Saturday we tracted and tracted and it rained all day, but it was good because meet some really nice people. We went to Taco Bell for dinner with the Spanish Elders and Elder Maxwell left his iPad there and he didn't realize it until we got back to our apartment. We ran back and, thank goodness, the iPad was still there. They had it sitting up by the registers. Sunday we had an investigator come to church and she even payed tithing. Today we are going to give her a priesthood blessing. She called and asked for one last night.
Alma 5:48 I say unto you, that I know of myself that whatsoever I shall say unto you, concerning that which is to come, is true; and I say unto you, that I know that Jesus Christ shall come, yea, the Son, the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace, and mercy, and truth. And behold, it is he that cometh to take away the sins of the world, yea, the sins of every man who steadfastly believeth on his name.

It was another good week in Goodlettsville. We taught a lot of new people and some old, old former investigators. It has been a blast. Tuesday we got to see a great sunset while tracting. On Thursday and Friday we meet with some less actives. These folks have great testimonies and are just struggling with some things in their lives. It was great to get to know them. On Friday, after tracting it started to rain and it was very cold. The rain froze my head and I developed a bad headache. On Sunday night we met with our investigator family.
My scripture this week is Hebrews 13: 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
All is good in Goodlettsville. Have a good week. It is better to look up.
Love, Elder Blazzard

This week went well. We had a lot of hard lessons including people throwing their garbage at us. I really seemed like lesson after lesson we would have issues. A guy even prophesied that my companion and I would leave the church and unite the saints at last (sic?). I read a lot in the Book of Mormon this week including King Benjamin's speech. It really built my faith in the Book of Mormon. Elder Zwick come and spoke to us. It was very, very powerful. The scripture this week I am ponderizing is D&C 35:15 And the poor and the meek shall have the gospel preached unto them, and they shall be looking forth for the time of my coming, for it is nigh at hand.
Thanks for the support and love, love y'all. I know that Joseph Smith restored the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and that he is a prophet of God, and no one can tell me otherwise.

This was a good week. On Monday, we helped a member paint his house. The member is moving soon. On Tuesday, we worked at the Bishop's Store House. I went on exchanges with Elder Wright. My companion, Elder Maxwell, gave a training Wednesday. Brother Ford took us to Cook Out afterwards. We talked to our investigator family this week and they are doing well. They treat us like family and the mom has a hard time letting go of her old church. We helped paint some more on Saturday. Sunday we went to a investigator's church. It was a Methodist church. Then right after that we hurried to our church which is at 1 pm. This week was busy and that is good. My prospective is always changing and I am so thankful for the experiences I have gone through on my mission so far. I hope I don't lose faith in finding people to teach. People in the city are a little mean and distant, but we always find one who is ready, so thanks be to God.

This week went well as we are working with a family and hopefully we can set a family baptismal date with them. They are great and the mom fed us spaghetti and it was really good. We also met a lady in Millersville. She has been meeting with the missionaries since around 2000. The only thing is her husband doesn't want her to join any church. Things are slow but picking up, during are planning session, we called like fifty people. We know the area a little better and now know more members. It helped to have a regular Sunday. We went to a couple different churches this week; Baptist, Church of Christ, and Pentecostal. It was fun and loud. Have a good week.
Psalm 15: 1-2
1 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? 2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
