Elder Hartvigsen--September 26, 2011

Hey everyone! sorry it has taken me so long to figure out that i need to hit "reply to all" haha (thanks dad) anyways its the last week of this transfer and its crazy how fast time goes on! i went on exchanges with my zone leader elder dallin johnson on saturday. it was really crazy cause we both went to davis, and never really knew eachother, and now all of a sudden we are with eachother so much preaching the gospel. he is a great missionary and a great example! this week has been pretty hard, but i guess that some are harder than others. i hope everyone is doing ok at home, i am doing pretty good here. im almost guaranteed to stay in this area cause of this 12 week training program. its super itense and fast paced, but i also have learned a ton! we have an investigator we are teaching who is like 6 foot 10, he looks like goliath, but he has the softest heart, i have developed a very strong love for the people here, and especially this guy. he is so in tune with the spirit, and it seems that he is the one teaching me. he has a baptismal date for the 22 of october. his family is going through some hard times right now. his daughter is a meth addict, and they are too poor to get her good treatment. he had been praying for an answer, and for help. well they sent an email to this tv show called intervention (which is a really big tv show) and out of the thousands of emails i guess they looked at his, and picked their family for an episode of intervention. i guess on the show, they give out like 20 thousand dollars worth of treatment for free. so daughter will be able to get the treatment she needs. it is just a huge miracle and an answer to prayers. it is such a testimony builder to me that if we pray sincerly, god will answer us. i have seen it so many times in my own life just being out in the mission field. anyways i hope everyone knows how much i love them! stay strong, thank you for all the support!
