Week #14 10-27-2014

I am in the Caldwell East stake, which is definitely a bigger town then Melba, but isn't the biggest city! My new companion's name is Elder Daniels and he seems like a cool guy! We live in an apartment with two other elders and then there are two elders who live underneath us! Love Ya

Riley said he will miss Elder Christensen (from Gilbert) so much.  
"He's the big brother I never had".

So the highlight of these past two weeks was Aspyns baptism! She was so stoked to be baptized! She was golden, and if you guys would have met her you would think she grew up a member!  Her uncle came form eastern Idaho and baptized her and it was special because he is one of the only strong members in her family! She had tons of support from her friends and family! The whole room was full and it was a really good baptism! Anyways, I will miss Melba! It will always be know as the birthplace of Elder Rogers! I will probably have more pictures next week because Elder Van Wagoner took a bunch of pictures for  me! Anyways, I love you all and you all rock! Love you!
 Aspyn's Baptism

This is Dennis Adams!
He is super awesome! He loves to have the Elders come by his house! We have to go over there and clarify  false doctrine! I don't even know where he gets it from but it is definitely weird! He claims to be a Mormon with a sword so he never takes crap from anyone and is basically an old stubborn cowboy! He is always giving us food and is always looking out for us! He was recently ordained an Elder so he refers to himself as Elder Adams! Good guy, gonna miss him for sure!!

The Bunnels!
Super awesome family and really nice! He is a cop, army helicopter pilot, served his mission in Tijuana Mexico! She is a school teacher and coaches the girls volleyball team! So whenever we go over there we are always chatting about volleyball! Their kids are super awesome and like video games, football, and riding motorcycles! They are a really cool family and are super funny! The dad is just like a teenager and reminds me of myself sometimes! Gonna miss them!!

This is the Christensen family!
Probably one of my favorite families in Melba! He is the Ward mission leader for his ward and is really awesome! He is really knowledgeable too! If we ever had a gospel question, we would just call him up and talk to him! She is a dance teacher and a stay at home mom! Their kids are so funny! They usually would walk out in their underpants then get yelled at! They were really funny! If we ever had a dinner appointment with them then we wouldn't schedule anything else for the night because we would be there the rest of the night! Haha one of a kind family!

This is part of the Cowger family!
They are a really sweet family! They have four boys and one girl! The kid in the middle is about to leave for Lima, Peru on his mission! His sister just got back from the Dominican Republic on Thursday! IT was really cool because she gave her homecoming talk the same day he gave his farewell! So there was a ton of people there! But it was really cool and you could feel the spirit there! He gave a killer talk about a really awesome topic that really touched me. She gave a money talk and shared a bunch of experiences about her mission that were really cool! I hope I will be able to come home with some cool stories! Oh and she looks exactly like him just with long blonde hair!
