This week was not what we expected.


This week was crazy, but in a different way. 

I love Elder Downey, my new companion. He is extremely spiritual and very obedient. He is a great example to me. But this week was not what we expected.

Elder Downey has been battling migraines since November and this week it hit him hard. He was in bed for 4 days, rarely getting up. He was able to go and do some stuff in the evenings but only for a few hours. I felt so bad for him. He was walking around our already dark apartment with sunglasses on!  So we were not able to do nearly as much as we hoped. But he is up and moving now and we were able to go to a doctor this morning that really helped him out. 

In the middle of all of this madness we were able to go and teach Mia. Mia is a 9 year old girl who was introduced to the gospel through one of her friends. That friend has since moved but we are still teaching her. She loves primary, the class at our church for little ones, and she loves learning about the gospel. Elder Downey went to college and studied music education for children. So, he is amazing with little kids. We were talking about prophets and he wanted to sing "follow the Prophet." Since Elder Downey is a convert of about 2 years he didn't know the song so I got to sing it and teach it to Mia and him!! haha. It was a lot of fun! It’s amazing what spirit you can feel when you talk about truth. 

Keep the faith, never give up. I miss you Madeline Rose. 
Your missionary,   

Elder Eldredge
