B*** is wonderful! We went by last week and he had read Alma 32 and he asked Sister Unrast, Sister R***** (member), and I what drew us to the gospel and why we lived this way. It was a great opportunity to share that this gospel is not a church to go to but a way to live our lives. It is a way to gain a relationship with our Father in Heaven and be a better person.
L**** is so great. We had a great talk with her yesterday about the gospel of Jesus Christ: faith, repentance, baptism, the holy ghost and enduring to the end. I always start crying as I share with them how much God loves them. He does. I can feel it. I can feel his love surging through me. I can feel his desire for them to come back to him. We invited L**** to come to church with usand she said yes!
The P****** are our saving grace. We were tractingand guess who pulled up behind us? The P******. They asked us to come get hamburgers with them! Hahaa we ended up going to McDonalds (our favorite!) and then they drove us up to "This is the Place" Monument and we walked around and we talked about the pioneers and then they took us on a tour around the University of Utah campus. It is HUGE! They wanted us to become more familiar with Utah! Hahaha they are the cutest. They make our days! Of course their sweet little grandson was along for the ride! We love them.
My days can be long here but the weeks are short. I am already on week 6 in the mission field. Can you believe it? This gospel and its teachings make me a better person every day. I love everyone back home. You are always in my prayers.

Elder Wilcox moment of the week: We were driving and Sister Wilcox said "don't hit the dip" (referring to the dip in the road) and Elder Wilcox said "I wasn't going to hit you"! hahahaa.
