20 May 2013

transfers are today. but nothing is changing for elder till and I. we both get to stay in the 7th ward and we are still riding our bikes.  (they promised me again that a car is coming to us in the near future, we'll see)  there have only been a few days over 100 degrees so we've been okay so far.

the sisters and Spanish missionaries in the district are being transferred, but I know everyone coming in and it should be a fun district. I don't think we'll have any problems.

we went to the mission office earlier in the week and when I got there, the older sister missionary, who is secretary in the office, started talking to me about going home! haha, she leaves the end of june and might be more excited about college football games than I am. she was telling me all about when tickets go on sale, and where the student section is going to be. it was pretty funny.

we spent a lot of time this past week working with Richmond and Tomeko. they came to church last week and then again yesterday. they have a baby on the way and seem really interested in righting the course of their lives. unfortunately they are fairly transient, and so we aren't sure how long they will be around. we tried to give them as much information as we could while we had them.

remember, "today is the day which the Lord has made... rejoice and be glad in it!"

13 May 2013

hey everybody! hopefully you all had a wonderful mothers day. I know I did! and a wonderful rest of my week for that matter.

on Saturday, 4 of us road-tripped down to Pahrump to be at the baptisms of Lore and Nicole. not only did it feel really great to be back in Pahrump (Pahrump is far from clean and wholesome, but it feels better than vegas lol) but it was amazing to see two women I have grown to love make another step in following Christ. and we got to visit with some of our favorite people in the wards down there. it was a good good day!

on Friday we helped a guy move. we thought it was going to be an easy short move. it took us 6 hours. the guy had a bunch of old movie props. we're talking 7 foot tall mummies and zebra chairs. it was ridiculous. but fun because it was so ridiculous.

the rest of our week was filled with teaching and crazy fast bike riding.

next Monday is transfers. I might get a new companion, we'll see what happens.

hope you all have a wonderful week! be good :)

Elder till and I had a great week this week. probably our best yet as a companionship. we put a lot of miles on our bikes and talked to as many people as we could. and had a lot of fun while he did it!

Zone Conference was on Friday. that's always a good time, to see the other elders. and learning how to teach better is always a good thing. we focused on the characteristics of Christ, and how we can strive to follow His example in our work.

We met these cool people named David and Vivian this week. they are from southern California and have only been in vegas for a few weeks now. david has been a member of the church for a little bit over a year and Vivian wants to learn more. they are both super excited about getting integrated into the ward here. its good to see!

this week we have lots of fun things scheduled. Saturday we are going down to Pahrump with a couple other elders to go to 2 baptisms. should be really fun and then on sunday I get to Skype my mama! cant wait for that. don't forget your mamas on sunday!

be good everybody, remember the things that really matter!
