Hey everyone how is it going?? This week has been really good! We got a lot done and the weather has been freakin amazing! I am just gonna jump right in it!
Tuesday- So in the morning we had District meeting, that was really boring. Then we all went out to lunch after that to Wingers which is a Ghetto Buffalo Wild Wings. Then later that day we visited the Hortons who we are working with to get baptized! Then that night we went on splits and saw Abby! I asked her on a scale of one to 10 how excited she was to get baptized and she looked at me and said " mmmm A million"! Haha it was the cutest thing ever! Out of all the people I have seen get baptized, she has been the most excited! It was awesome!
Wednesday- Nothing exciting really happened Saturday:(
Thursday- In the Morning we helped this guy chop down a bunch of trees! I felt like a Lumberjack! haha There is this restaurant that will feed us for free because the members own it. It is great! We go there a lot! Then we went to a potential investigators house and visited her for a while! Her name is Wendy and she is really cool! Then we met this guy, Richard, who was a logger and he built his house out of logs. It is like a log cabin and it is super cool! but he also likes John wayne so we talked about the Duke for a while! It was great!
Friday- We started off by doing service at the senior center four like three hours! We washed a bunch of beans and stocked their storage room! Then we went to the Hortons again and helped clean out their dog pen because the twins are in 4H and are getting goats, so we converted it to a goat pen!
Saturday- ABBY GOT DUNKED!!!!! It was such a good baptism! There were so many people there that we had to move everyone into the chapel because there wasn't enough room. It was awesome! Such a good baptism. Also I think the best part was seeing Jace again! He is such and awesome guy! Then after that we put our service clothes back on and went to work! We mowed a lady's lawn for her and helped this family move their refrigerator into their house! Surprisingly enough that took the rest of the day! haha
Well that is all I got for this week! I love you guys have a good week and thanks for everything!

Hey everyone! I just wanna start with General Conference was sweet! Man Those guys are just some of the most inspired men and women on the earth! Freaking crazy! My favorite talk was by Elder Christofferson's talk about dads! Mainly because I have the best dad ever! But I also liked Elder Uchdorf's talk as well! He is a funny guy! Man there was just a lot of good talks this time and I loved it all! Also i thought it was really funny when President Monson brought up Alice in Wonderland! Because mom thinks he looks like one of the characters! haha
Tuesday- We had district meeting which was okay. I am just really burnt out on missionary meetings! haha Then we had a couple appointments fall through, which is really weird because that never happens, oh wait. Then that night we helped this family move into their house and they said they were cool for us to come back and teach them so hopefully it works out!
Wednesday- We had some more appointments fall through, but that was ok! Also, the Hutchinsons took us out to lunch and it was really good to see them again! Then that night we had a baptismal interview with a little girl who is getting baptized on Saturday! Super stoked about that!
Thursday- We helped a lady move a TV into the garbage! Her mom was just diagnosed with cancer, so it was a good visit. Then we had a lesson with this little kid named Tayson who is super funny! He is really sassy and makes me laugh! Then we were supposed to have a lesson with this kid named Stephen, but we ended up doing service with him for this guy in our ward! haha
Friday- So there was a funeral for this guy who I didn't know, but Elder Jacobs knew. So he went to that and I went with another member to help move this family! But when I say they lived in the middle of no where I mean it! haha It was like a 45 minute drive into the hills and there was nothing back there! It was actually a really cool house! Then after that we went to fruitland to help some other elders do some service. We dug a trench which was kinda fun. I guess! Haha but the cool part was that the people had a pond to go fishing in their backyard! I don't know if you know what a Stergen is, but they are like dinosaur fish, but these people got a permit for them! And they grow to be like 9 ft long! Its crazy! Then that night we had some appointments fall through again so the Zone leaders took us out for Ice cream!
Saturday- Conference and we helped the TV lady again and shoveled some gravel out of the back of her truck!
Well That is all I got! Sorry mom for no pictures. I forgot my camera at home:( But Love you guys! Take care!
