Hello world!

This was a good week. A little slow, but a good week. We taught a few lessons to Marisol this week, but sadly she didn't come to church so she is off date. Yesterday during sacrament meeting I looked through the congregation only to see every 3 out of 5 people on their phones. That made me sad. But there was this one guy sitting in front of me who was on his phone the whole time. He was even playing on it during the sacrament. That made me mad. I seriously considered winding up, smacking him in the bake of the head, and taking his phone and throwing it across the chapel. But I thought that would have been disruptive so I didn't. I think that was a similar experience to when Jesus chased people out of the temple.

So last night we had a Goodbye Fireside. President and Sister Moffat and the rest of the mission presidency gave their departing testimonies. It was a cool experience. I will miss president Moffat a little. He has taught me a lot. The sad part was saying goodbye to all of my friends that are going to the East mission. The two people I will miss the most are Elder Trey Forrester and Sister Rachel Escolopio. Elder Forrester is the best friend I've made on my mission.
And Sister Escolopio is really cool/funny. So my P-days will now be on Mondays.
Love Elder Pleshek

Mom write me back when you finish reading this thx :)

This week was good. We have a new investigator. I'm not sure how to spell it but the pronunciation is "Mary soul." She is the only investigator we have to work with because ether we dropped our investigators or they dropped us.  President Palmer will be a stay at home mission president. I'm excited for the change! I get to meet new people and make more friends. 

One more month until my year mark. I'm glad Elder Dahlke is living with me because we are going to celebrate it together by burning a shirt. I got my ankle weights today and I will be playing volleyball in them today. So this week we have been playing spoons, it's pretty intense. I'm having a blast and I thank God every day for the opportunity I have to serve a mission. Well that's it for this week, Oh wait I also fell off my bike in the church parking lot but I'm ok. I hope Brock is ok.
Love ya
Elder Pleshek

P.S. Tell day happy Father's Day and tell Tom that his Brazza says happy birthday.

 This week was awesome! Last Tuesday we had our mission Olympics. Each zone got a color and we competed zone on zone. Unfortunately Taylorsville got last. But I did good. I got third in flag tag. Flag tag is where you tuck a piece of cloth in your pants and everyone tries to rip the cloth out of your pants. That was fun. Then I went on exchanges with Elder Semu, That was a lot of fun. 

On Saturday was Amy's baptism! It was by far the best baptism I have ever been to. I said the closing prayer and then Elder McCarty confirmed her. I am excited to join the west mission. I'm going from the second smallest mission in Utah to the second biggest. I am sad for two reasons though. Midvale and Murray won't be in the same mission. I will also be losing three weeks of my mission due to the way transfers fall.
Well until next week.

This was another great week from the mission field. This week we dropped two of our investigators because they weren't keeping commitments. However we did pick up a new investigator named Salma. She was on date for June 27th but she missed church so we will have to extend a new date tomorrow.

Amy passed her interview and she will be baptized on Saturday! I'm so excited for Saturday, baptisms are my favorite part of being a missionary. This is the first step they must
take to return to there Father in Heaven. We also took Amy on a temple square tour. That was really cool, I need to start taking all of my investigators to temple square. I had sister Leas as my tour guide
again and she remembered me, she must think I'm cute or something. JK.

This week while we were riding down 5400w I had someone spit at me. Lucky it missed, except I did get a little drop on my shoe. I thought that was funny. The insults don't get to me any more. In fact I kind of like when they happen because I always get a good laugh out of it.

On a happier note I am getting in good with the west AP's. We share the same building with them on Sunday. When ever they see me they come and shake my hand and give me a hug and say I love you Elder. They say "I love you" a lot in that mission. Elder McCarty says they do that because they are scared of us, because we are the best mission in the valley.  That is why they are dissolving our mission into 3 other ones because they want us to train other missionaries on how to do the work
like we do, or that's what president Moffat makes it seem like.

I loved the shirt it was awesome. There is an eye place at Walmart.
We'll anyways that's all for this week

This week was a lot of fun. Elder McCarty and I are living with two other Elders. They are Elder Dahlke and Elder Semu who is from New Zealand.

We are working with a girl named Amy. She is so excited to be baptized on the 13th. She is the definition of golden. We are working with another girl named Ali. She doesn't have a date yet, but I think she will soon. I also crashed my bike this week, But I'm still ok.

I saw the AP's from the west mission on Sunday and I got them to believe I was a zone leader. Speaking of the west mission that's where I will most likely end up. Anyways I've had a great week and I'm loving the YSA stake. Talk to you next week.
