Howdy everyone! 

Well not to much happen this week really.  Been doing a lot of finding still and still not having that much success.  It was a hard week since it was Cowes week which is the biggest Yacht race in the world.  You think that would be awesome for contacting but everyone is just drunk and could careless about God.  It was fun to see all the Yachts and people going crazy.  I also got to go on a vision quest.  My companion was really into mediation before he came out and so he has his little in-cents (don't know how to spell) box so he had my lie down and close my eyes.  Turned the lights of and played some relaxing music.  He then guided me through my vision quest to find my spiritual animal and right when I was about to see it I fell asleep.  It was pretty funny how he describe it to me when I fell asleep.  He said that he noticed I started snoring so he started telling me to do things and I didn't move so he just turned the lights on said ELDER WILSON!  I woke up peacefully and he was all sad and confused cause he didn't know what to do with me haha.  It was pretty great.  

We went knocking in a place called Ventnor which is so amazing and the southern part of the Island.  We knocked a door with a guy that had met with missionaries a long time ago.  He was blind in one eye which was pretty cool. A side not really quick.  My Companion after talking to this guy said he wanted to be blind in one eye so he could wear an eye patch and then tell me people that with his good eye he sees them and then lifting the eye patch say and with this one I see into your soul.  It was so funny.  He 

also tells less actives that he wants to get shot so he knows how it feels.  He such a crazy guy! Anyway back to the story.  The guy we talked to wasn't all that interested but we had a good lesson.  Later that night before going in we got a call from an unknown number.  It was the guy!  He told us that he felt the Spirit move while speaking to us and wanted to meet with us.  We committed him to church for the next day and he showed up.  We will be meeting with him again this week and it was just a great tender mercy and blessing the Lord gave us!  So grateful for it.  Sunday night we also had a fireside with Stake Patriarch and it was so deep and so amazing!  I will share what he told us how to study our Patriarchal Blessings.

He said all of them are made up of three things.  Some may be more then others or they might be equal.  

1. Gifts/Talents
2. Instructions/Directions
3. Resulting Blessings

We then have to study it and find out what Gifts we have that go with a specific instruction and then what the blessings are from them.  They can be easy to find and not so easy.  For example you might have the gift and instructions right by each other but the blessing far away.  So we then have to find it.  He also said that the blessings might not always bless us but bless others.  It really opened my Patriarchal Blessing to me and is a lot more fun to read and study!  I hope you will all enjoy studying yours more and that this may help you out a little and was somewhat clear haha.  

Well that was my week in a nutshell.  I love all of you so much and hope you have a great week!
