Kearns Week 21: It's like a symphony, just keep listening.


Good morning everyone! It's currently snowing outside, and it won't stop until Wednesday! So, it's officially winter here in Utah. Luckily, I have plenty of winter gear, so I think I can survive just barely. Haha.

This past week has been great, and we didn't have a whole lot of lesson's since most of everyone was out of town for Thanksgiving and what not. But we did have some powerful lessons with people and we have been starting to share the new Christmas Video that the Church releases every year. I really love this year’s one. It's about Lighting the World through our actions. It's really powerful. Go to to watch it or watch it right here.

Kearns Week 20: The Power of Conversion


Good morning everyone! It has been another fantastic week here in Kearns, Utah!! We recently had a change of leadership in a few of our wards and branches (congregations), so we are getting with the new leadership to set some goals that they have and to establish a relationship with them! So, it's been a great experience this past Sabbath!

The work is going great, and yesterday we had a refugee family come to one of our wards and they said they want us to read the Book of Mormon, with them, and we will be meeting with them hopefully tonight or later this week! It's amazing to be a witness of that and to help other families in unfortunate circumstances. It's very humbling to be here in Kearns, like I have said in previous emails. I love everyone here, and it's fantastic!

We are going to have a baptism in the Spanish Branch this Saturday and we invited the Stake President to be there. She is super excited to be baptized! It was great to help her get there, even if it was just a little bit! Our first weekend of December we should have two more baptisms which will be great to see as well! It's amazing to see the fruits of the harvest finally be here, and we are still working hard.

This is Thanksgiving week and I will be spending it with a Hispanic family which will be fun! I'm excited for that! It also snowed this week so it's finally winter here in Utah!! Got my thermals just in time! Haha

I love y'all! I hope everyone is well back home and are staying warm! I am thankful for everything y'all do! Thanks for the emails and letters! Y'all are great! Stay warm, and have a happy fall y'all!

Kearns Week 19: New Beginnings


Well, it's been another great week! So after all the chaos that is always involved with transfers it turns out that I'm gonna be in a trio! I'm now serving with Elder Sipaque from Guatemala and Elder Balboa from Chile, so we cover English and Spanish. It's still the same area, but now I'm trying to learn Spanish! Haha! So that's fun, but we get along great and it's cool to be in a trio. I'm still staying in the same house, but it's nice with just the three of us. We did a lot this week, but unfortunately we didn't have too many lessons. We helped a few people move. We also recently contacted a refugee family from East Africa and we just gave them a Book of Mormon. We are starting to teach which is an awesome and a humbling experience. I was recently reading on which talks about how to help refugees families and it was awesome to watch all the videos on there on how we can do simple things to help them. I would asked all of you to go on there because it is really humbling. We also have a car now so now we can get places faster which is a huge blessing! It was so nice! We can now take care of ourselves which is awesome!

Kearns Week 18: It’s a whole new world.


This week was awesome! It was fantastic! So we got transfer calls last Saturday and I will be staying here in Kearns until December 20th, so I'm super excited for that! We hopefully should have a few new converts by next transfer! So I’m glad to stay here! I will have a new companion. I'm not sure who I'll be working with yet, but Elder a Eason is leaving. So I'll be missing him! But this week we have been contacting a TON and we found two new people to teach and it's epic! I'm am so grateful to be in this wonderful area! So we will be working with them next week and we will see how it goes! I love the work. We had a blast this week! Keep moving forward!
