Week 56 - Last Week of Transfers

This week is the last week of the transfer! We will see what happens. There are 28 new missionaries coming in, so the likelyhood of me training is pretty high. I hope so, I want another son :) How's the rest of the fam doing? We have two baptisms this week, I'll send pictures!

Week 55 - Crazy P-Day

Hey everyone, sorry it's been a while. Today has been a pretty crazy P-Day. During exercise this morning, Elder Smith passed out and hit his head. He has a contusion on his brain from the fall and he will be out of commission for the next couple weeks... So he will be in the hospital for at least tonight and tomorrow morning. I'll be staying with him, so yay, adventure! Nah, not adventure, I'm just glad he's okay, I'm glad I can keep an eye out on him.

Anyway, other than this incident the week has gone pretty good. We should be having at least three baptisms next Saturday, hopefully one this Saturday as well. We are teaching quite a few people, we are just going to have to figure out how to juggle it all now that Elder Smith is hospitalized.

I'm not sure if I've told you about Mindon or not. He is a man that just got out of jail for drug usage and dealing and he was "hit by God with a 2X4" while he was in there. He met a man in there that
introduced him to the gospel and after he got out, he got ahold of our Ward missions leader and has been meeting with us every night for the past three weeks or so. He has completely changed from when we first met him, it is amazing to see. His friend trashed his house while he was in jail so we went and helped him start cleaning it out on Saturday. It was in bad condition. I felt so bad for him, but I'm glad we could help him make headway. I think we are going to go over tomorrow to help him some more. Anyway, he is being baptized next week and we are so happy for him, he is awesome.

Anyway, I don't know what else to write, my head is kinda spinning, so I'll keep in touch with everyone, but thank you so much for all of your prayers! Love you all!

Week 54 - Working Hard

Hi Mom :)

Sorry, it's been a pretty busy P-Day.  Summer is going by super fast!  This week has been really good, we found a few more people that would like to be baptized and we are very excited for them.  Hopefully everything works out.

We are building a lot of member trust here.  We have been working a lot with them and they love it.

We had a good P-Day, we went shopping and then played a good game of soccer, which was fun.  Then we played some games at a church building and we are now home getting ready.

So, yeah, things are going good, I'm excited for the next few weeks, they should go fast.

I love you Mom! ;)

Week 53 - Fourth of July

Hello! Sorry, today has been a bit crazy.

Due to the Fourth of July, and the fact that it was P-Day, we ended up having an all day P-Day. Which was awesome! But also super weird. So we had two movies approved by president that we could watch, the First was Risen, it was super Catholic and I don't recommend it. The second was Zootopia, which I thought was quite fantastic. We may have watched it twice. 

Earlier in the morning we had the opportunity to help organize the North Ogden parade. We got to be in it and it was awesome. I got to be part of the hype squad so we ran around and hi-fives all of the kids on the side of the street :)

This weekend was awesome! We had a baptism! Sylvia got baptized! She is a 12 yr old girl that we have been teaching for the past three weeks and she decided she wanted to make this step :) it was awesome!

We are also teaching a lot of other people. We had another miracle this week! We were going to our ward mission leader's house for dinner and we found a man there talking with him. His name was Mindon and he had just gotten out of prison, he took us showing up in front of him as a sign from God that he needed to meet with us. So we have been meeting with him every day and he has been working toward the 30th for baptism. We are super excited for him.

Anyway, we have seen a ton of miracles in our area lately and I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to be a missionary in this great exotic state of Utah! Thank you for all of your prayers, I hope you all have a great week!
