26 Oct 2015

This week was good. Elder Wells and I are getting along good. He is a little odd, but he is a good kid. In terms of missionary work he reminds me a lot of myself. I feel like I will have a chance to grow a lot this transfer because I will be doing most of the talking. Elder Wells talks less than I do. I've never had a companion that talks less than me. So. I am going to get out of my shell even more this

The last two weeks it has really hit me that I don't have a whole lot of time left. 8 months isn't really that long and I still have so much to learn and do. I think I am having a mid mission crisis.

Rosalyn got baptized this week. It was so awesome. She was so excited! I saw her an hour and a half before her baptism she had a big smile and she was all giddy. She is going to be an awesome member and an asset to her ward. Now that she is baptized we are back to the finding.

Last night we had our musical fireside. It was awesome.

This week was good. It could have been a lot better but it was still good. The two baptisms we had scheduled. Ryleigh got sick so we couldn't finish teaching her. So she is getting baptized this week.
Something came up with Rosalyn so she is going to get baptized on the 24th.

I got to go on exchanges this week. Elder Paukovic came to my area. He is from Serbia and he is 6'9". We had a fun time together. He actually now lives in Las Vegas and he has been a member for 2 1/2 years.

We had zone conference this week it was really good. I learned a lot.
President and sister Palmer are so inspired. They always say exactly what I need to here. Later that night I looked at my arm pit in the mirror and it was all read and puffy. So the next morning I went to see the mission nurse. She looked at it and told me I had an allergic reaction to my deodorant. So I can't use that deodorant any more which makes me sad because it smells really good.

Last night I ate some Indian food. It was really good. There was a few different kinds of curry. So I had some of that and then I tried some chicken hearts. The texture was chewy, but it was really good. I also got to go to primary it was so fun. We were there because they were learning about missionary work. It was so fun. So yeah that was my week.

My week was good. Ryleigh got baptized and it was awesome! We got transfer calls on Friday. I am staying and I will be Sr. Companion to Elder Wells. I've only met him once and people tell me he is a little odd. I've had odd companions before though. I'm always a little nervous at the beginning of each transfer because I'm unsure of how it will go. I'm sure it will all be ok though.

Elder Helgesen goes home tomorrow, and he has been talking about going home a lot. That's made me alittle trunky. Other than that it has been slow. Well have a great week.

5 Oct 2015

This was a good week. I got to attend 3 sessions of conference. The Saturday morning, Sunday morning and afternoon. It was pretty great. I spent my whole day at temple square. I saw a lot of my friends from the old mission. It was really good to see them. My favorite talk this year was Elder Uchtdorf's talk in priesthood session. It was a really good conference. During the Sunday afternoon session I sat next to a family from Cedar city. They were pretty cool. It was kinda hard staying around Temple Square the whole day because there were so many beautiful daughters of God running around. It was torture. 

Anyways this week I also got to play basketball with some poly's. That was fun. Last Monday a bunch of random people showed up to a church building and we played basketball for like 3 hours. There is a lot of good basketball players in our mission. Other than that this week was pretty uneventful.
The person we were bringing didn't show so we had tickets so we went. Everything is still looking good for next week.

Love ya,
