911 Call

Sorry I got this letter out so late.  We had an activity today.
Well it's been a crazy week!
To start off the week we had to call 911. We were going to a former Investigators house, and as we drove by the house looking for the address Elder hurst said he saw someone laying on the porch looking like they were praying/sleeping. So we turned around and drove past and looked and she was just laying on her porch kind of in the fetal position not moving. So we drove past and parked and started walking up to her house. When we got up to her we tried to talk with her and she barely could move. She put her head up a tiny bit and put it back down, and didn't respond to anything we would say. She was in rough rough shape! So we called the ambulance and they came over, a police officer went up the porch and tried to get her to move or talk and she wouldn't. He finally had to kind of put his hand on her and move her and she slowly got up. When we got a clear angle of her she looked like a literal zombie! Her face was completely flushed and gray, and pink swelling around her eyes and mouth. It was the roughest person I've ever seen in my life. And I felt horrible. She couldn't stand up and had to be sitting on a chair. She started to talk a little bit though and slowly got out of it. But it was pretty weird scary moment.  Drugs really will mess you up! We are glad we noticed her though, and got her some help. She had been laying there a long time I'm sure without anyone noticing or care to do anything.
Also this week was Edwin's baptism it was amazing! He was so happy and excited for this new change. He was much more happy than when we first met him. He has changed a lot! Christ and his gospel will do some amazing things if you let it. He shared his testimony to everyone and it was touching, he has felt the love of God and is experiencing what it feels like. I'm excited to hear how he does in the future!
We have had some good success this week with finding some new people to teach. It's always exciting to see some new people to work with. I'll let you know if anything progresses.
It's been a pretty good week, and I'm glad to be here! We find out transfer news this Saturday. I swear it comes up faster and faster each transfer! We are both hoping to stay but you never know. I will have some news Monday.
Anyways I hope this week goes a little bit better, those weeks of humbling are never fun. Thanks for all you do!
