We are where we are for a reason!!!

Hey fam!

So sorry I didn't let you guys know that p-day would be today. Tomorrow we have a general authority from the quorum of the seventy coming named Elder Bennett! So they changed it to today! Today we are doing a tour of West Point and so I won't have much time to write, but I just wanted to check in with you guys and tell y'all I love you!

This week was great as always! As always, we saw a lot of miracles! I've already learned so many things from Elder Molina! I think President knew I needed a little bit of extra training and so he gave me the missionary that is basically already a veteran missionary. Haha, he is seriously a stud muffin! I'm super happy to be able to be his companion! :)

Everyone one is doing super well here in Newburgh! We had the opportunity to give Carlos a blessing this week, which was a really tender experience! He is going through such a hard time and it's been so awesome to see the impact the priesthood can have on people's lives. Please pray for him that he can give up his addictions and be baptized!!

I don't know if I mentioned Hermana Solis last time, but she is soooo awesome! She was a member referral from a less active actually, and she is SO PREPARED! The only problem is that she also is living with someone she is not married to. One of the most classic problems here in the Spanish program, Haha, but we have some super high hopes for her to be baptized this coming month! She is basically like my mom here in Newburgh! She takes such good care of us! Haha.

This past week we decided we were going to spend a day in an area we don't go to very often. So we went down there and looked up ALL the investigators and members we had down there and NOBODY was home! It was a bummer because it takes like an hour to travel down there and we didn't want to just leave without seeing anybody, so we took the list of all the old investigators that the missionaries used to teach in the area and prayed to receive revelation for which one of them to go see. Well, one of the names popped out to us and we went to go see them and nobody was home. We knew that the Lord had led us to that certain door for a reason and we weren't going to leave until we found out that reason. We knocked the next door neighbor’s house and there opened up our reason. We found a super duper awesome lady named Debbie who we are going back to see tonight! God puts us where we are for a reason, the situations we have in life are the ones that he knows we need. Everything he does is for our own benefit. Because he loves us!

I love you all so very much! Happy anniversary to my amazing parents! Thanks for being the example of what 2 parents should be like. And for showing me what love is! I love you more than you know!

Have a legendary week! Make it the best one ever!!!
Love Elder Brown
