Week #3- 8-11-14 (1st week in Idaho)


One of his MTC teachers that he thought looked like Jeremy Traasdahl.

Elder Rogers & Elder Hulet thought this painting looks like them. 
 Look closely at it because it really does.


He said this is what he does while he's waiting for our emails.

Elder Hills- looks like Kevin Heart

View from his house in Melba. 

Hey fam hows it going? Idaho is great and its so pretty! I am in a little town called Melba and it is just like the little farm towns in the movie! I actually think it is the same little town from signs! Our closest neighbor is like 1 mile away. But I love it! The people are super nice and they are ALL farmers! 

Tuesday- I arrived at the airport then went to an orientation meeting where we went tracting for the first time! I LOVE getting doors slammed in my face! It is the best! Then we had dinner and got our companion assignments and off we went!

Wednesday- Me and Elder Vanwagoner went around and visited some people! We met this guy Nate and he is 28 but he looks like he is 15! He is a Catholic and loves the bible! He really wants to know where we think Hitler and people like that end up!

Thursday- We went around and visited more people! There are these members named the Goff's! They give the new missionaries a tooth brush and toothpaste! We also taught my first lesson to an investagator who is getting baptized AUG 23! One month mark baby!!!!! He is golden and never has any questions!  Which is really good because Elder Van Wagoner says I have to answer all their questions because he is baptizing me by fire!

Friday- We went and did some service for this old lady who got evicted from her house! I have never heard someone say the f word so many times in 3 minutes! I wassn't even offended... i was impressed! Then we had zone meeting which was really cool! Just talked alot and i may or may not have fallen asleep! Then we went tracting and met some other people!

Saturday- We went and did service for this lady and we built a waterfall infront of her house which was pretty dope! THen we went on exchanges and i was with the ZL's! We were contacting a referral and they didnt answer so we found this 15 year old girl and talked to her and gave her a book of mormon and stuff like that! She said she wasn't interested so we left and we got about 100 yards away from this house when we heard a blood curddling scream! We turned around and this girl and her mom were walking right at us.. they were mad! So we talked to her and she was mad because she thinks we are devil worshipers and stuff like that! It was great!

Sunday- We had meetings that started at 6:30 then we had church until 4:00 because we cover three wards! Then that night we went and visited all the bishops and one of the daughters went to BYU and so she knows bryce and collin and jared and all those guys from highschool so that was pretty cool!

Well that was pretty much my week.. it has been really good so far! I love you guys so much and i miss you like crazy!  Love You all.. except for Ali! She is the worst kind of person.  (don't worry, this is how Ali & Riley speak to each other and show their love to each other)
