So turns out that tranfers aren’t this week. They we’re last week. Our District Leader, the all knowing former AP, Didn’t tell us it was a 5 week move. But so Tanfers were last wednesday. My companion Elder Merrill Moved to Guildford. They share the same chapel as us. That area is the ward just next to us. Really funny. My new Companion is Elder Blackner. He is from Beaver Utah. And he has been in the field for a total of 5 days now. So Im training him. Yeah! It is really fun being a trainer and really hard work. I forgot how much you dont know when you first start. But we have been having Greeny Miracles since Wednesday. We pick up four new people to teach and stopped by a Less active family that Iv’e been really nervous about visiting and got to share a thought.
So this week was good. Man I love conference. I started doing something that helps me stay focus. During the talk I try and guess what the name of the talk is going to be. I’ll have to see how well I did. I dont understand how sitting all day can wear me out so much. But it was all really good. We are watching the sunday afternoon session right now actually. Because of the time difference watching conference is a lot different. We watch saturday mornings at 5 at night then priesthood the next day at 10 am then run home from the stake centre and watch the saturday afternoon at 1 then sunday mornings session at 5pm. I dk why but it feels like a lot more. But it is all good. My favorite talks probably were.
Elder Craig A. Cardon
Elder David A. Bednar and Hollands that we just bearly watched.
I also really liked one of the talks that talked about missionary work and talked about how it was a family affair. I forgot my study journal so Im not sure who said it. It made me think. And I decided that I was going to ask for your guys help. So will you guys when you email me just help me out a little bit. Tell me what you learned that week, Spiritually. Was there any good talks you read? maybe you could send me the link. Also quotes. I decided I really like quotes. I have been filling my Preach my Gospel up w/ them. Mom, Sister your free to help me too! haha So I dont fill like I articulated that paragraph well but I can’t be bothered right now to fix it.
But conference was good. And I figured something out during it. I dont know what it is about Richard G Scott, but whenever he talks I fall asleep so fast!!! I think it is because he talks so peacfully. This week was slow. Both me and Elder Merrill are glad that it is finally getting warm. its soooo nice. The work has slowed down this week but Im going to do better. I love you guys and hope all is well. love
This week was good though. Samantha got Baptized!!!!! 🙂 It was well cool. Elder Merrill baptized her. She had to get baptized three times but hey third time is the charm. She invited like 8 of her friends that all showed up to support her. She got confirmed on Sunday and she is just so happy! and excited.
Michelle wanted to wait a couple of weeks. She really wants to but she felt stressed for this week but she invited us around for lasagna on Tuesday! I think I’ve only ever had lasagna once on my mission so far. Just not a very common thing eaten here.
I’m really excited for General Conference! I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited for General conference before. Just so much excitement. haha. new temples> New missions? Missionary numbers?
Trying to think what else happened. Elder Merrills Birthday was on Friday. Easter. Baptism. Temple. Yeah that’s about it. Oh yeah and its sunny TODAY!!!!!!!!! what a miracle. It had been a while since I’ve seen that flaming ball of gas in the sky. Felt good to see that again. Oh yeah daylight savings was horrible! So tired! No one has tried to beat us up lately so that’s a good sign. yep so I think that was about it for this week. Over all good week and a good start to the next one. Really looking forward to this week. Miracle time! Love you guys.
Thanks for all the love,
