Brothers and Rain

We sent Elder Wadley II off this week. Lots of blessings.
As cliche as it sounds, it was bittersweet. Bitter because of the temporary loss of our boy, and sweet too, for so many reasons. One of the reasons is the support of Brendan's brother. I wasn't the only one thinking "I wonder what he is doing right now?" the whole week. A sweet little Elder in Colombia is praying for, and rooting for his brother (by blood and in the gospel.)
And it makes my heart squishy to think that Elder Wadley had kind of a rough week this week. Their only investigator broke it off with them, and despite that, he was still focused on his brother- being happy for him- and not wallowing in his own disappointment. I think we can all learn a lesson from that. There is always sunshine after the rain, and sometimes even a rainbow or two.
Here is Jayden's email this week:
I saw Brendan's blog when you updated it! I am so pumped for him! All i could think is that "My brother right now is sleeping in the MTC in Provo!" I think it is so freaking awesome! I am really glad to see that you are able to see all the miracles during this week! I imagine that this week was pretty nuts! And if you were still able to sit back and look at all the little things that God has done for you is really awesome because usually we don't look for those kinda things! Proud of ya!
I am super excited to start reading about all of his "Adventures in Indiana" and see him grow spiritually and see pictures and everything from his mission! Maybe even him riding his bike around with his sweet helmet!;) 
Our week was pretty good! We had like our one progressing investigator tell us that he doesn't really want us to come by anymore which kinda really sucks! But we are going to be looking for new people this week and we have been doing a lot of street contacting. It has been kinda fun to go up to some random person in the street and talk to them you never really know what to expect. We have met all sorts of people and it has been cool!
Other than that we have had a decently normal week. We had interviews and a little training thing with President and it went really well and he helped us see a lot of things! It is a huge blessing being so close to him and having him help us out and everything! He is really a great guy! Well i don't have a whole lot to say as well, just want to let you know that i as well am seeing a lot of blessings in my life. Even when i am not the best person or if i am having a bad day or something God always helps us out and gives us blessings! 
I love you guys!!
