Warning: A crude phrase is used during the following post.
This week was good. Elder Craig and I are having lots of fun. We make jokes and we laugh at each other when we do stupid things. This week we taught a Muslim family. Sadly they weren't as interested as we thought they were. Teaching Muslims has a lot of rules that go with it. In
order to teach the second lesson, President Moffat has to call them and talk to them. This week I also went on exchanges with Elder Gardener. We had lots of fun and I got to go to his area while Elder
Nielsen, the district leader, came over here with Elder Craig.
Yesterday Elder Craig and I went to talk to a lady who is on the sidewalk. Before we got a chance to say anything she said, "You cock suckers belong in the street." Then she just kept walking. Then Elder Craig and I broke down laughing for at least five minutes. That is one of the funniest things I've heard on my mission so far. Man it was so funny. So on a happier note, we are finding more people to teach. Tonight we have a lesson with a man named Reggie and we hope to put him on date for baptism.
So about the bike thing I can look around for a used bike or I can buy a new bike for around $200 that would last me the rest of my mission? On Mother's Day I will be calling/face timing/skyping home at about 3 o'clock my time. Well that's all for this week.
PS I will be sending you some videos of my zone and P-day playing scatter ball. If you listen closely on one of the videos you will hear someone say, "Get Pleshek."

Today is my first day using my iPad for all of my emails so we'll see how it goes. This was a long week, but I had lots of fun with Elder Craig. This week involved lots of tracting which was fun...not. It's really nice to be back in Midvale. We also had a district meeting this week and I got to meet my district. I love my district! They are great!
We haven't found anyone to teach yet, but we are getting close to finding someone. The leadership in our area is really young. One of our bishops is 30 another one is 35, and our stake president is 35!
They are all great they have given us lots of referrals this week and they are always willing to help us. One of the things I forgot about serving in Midvale is that lots of people want to give you money. We have already gotten $40. It's really weird. I also ripped the pants on my blue suit, there is a big hole just below the butt. The weather yesterday was nice and sunny, I got a nice tan line from my watch and Elder Craig got a nice burn line from his watch. I didn't actually switch bikes. The parts I needed for the other frame were over $100 and I'm too cheap for that. So I'm going to look at the DI or somewhere for a bike that is better than mine because mine is slowly falling apart, Maybe I'll find a 10 speed for cheap. Well that's all I got.

This was a slow week. The investigators we are teaching are dodging us. On a better note we got transfer news last night. Elder Stiner and I are getting pink washed. That means that we are both leaving and sisters are coming to our area. So I m going to the Midvale Union Fort Stake, and I will be white washing that stake which is the same as pink washing just with Elders instead of Sisters. I will be Jr. companion to Elder Craig who was my MTC companion. I am so excited for this transfer. My new area borders a big part of my greenie area and I will have the longest transfer in the mission. Since my area is on the east most side I will probably end up in the East mission when our mission is consolidated. I will miss the people in this area, I have meet some really great people. I'm glad to be getting a new companion too, Elder Stiner is a great guy and I love him, but I'm ready to get someone new. I will try to FaceTime again on Mother's Day. That's all for this week.

This conference weekend was great! Besides the fact that we have no investigators to watch it with. I really enjoyed Elder Gibson's talk from the priesthood session. I also loved Elder Peirson's talk. This past week I hurt my arm playing dodge ball. I couldn't really lift anything heavy for a few days. It's crazy to think that in 3 months my mission will be half over. The time has really flown by. Last night I heard that Wisconsin lost and I was actually a little depressed. I really wish they would have beat Duke, Then I could have rubbed it in Christian's face, Now I can't. I can't really remember what I did this week, All of the days kinda blend together. I also gained 3 more pounds. I hit my goal weight for my mission and its not even half over. I'm going to get fat. That's all I got this week.
