17 December 2012
pahrump is awesome! maybe just because its not vegas, but so far im really liking it! its small, just 3 stop lights. we live about with members who are about 5 miles away from the nearest stop light. it has rained for the past few days, and many roads are unpaved out here so we have had lots of opportunity to use the four-wheel-drive on our truck :) we teach a guy who lives in an RV and we are going to start to teach another this week, after he gets out of jail. the mountains have been covered with snow all week. people out here have all sorts of animals. pigs, horses, cows. there is even a guy who walks around town with a goat!
my companion is named Elder Corcoran. hes from Missouri and has been a missionary for 2 months now. hes half samoan and huge, so everyone one is always asking us for help moving. we did 4 in the last week!
this week we went around to everyone we could meet and offered them a christmas message. not many accepted, but it has been a good way to spend time.
our two wards seem really great. mostly nice old people. some of them are "snowbirds" from colder, more northern places.
we're going to go to Death Valley soon on a p-day, since its in our area. im excited for that!
all is great here! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
