Hunter Week 3: Elder Ballard Visit


Good Morning! We had a great week here in West Valley, and we had a lot of things happen. We had Zone Conference Tuesday which was a lot of fun. We talked a lot about the Book of Mormon, and we had a guy come in and do a little presentation of it for us. So, it was a really fun Zone Conference, and I learned a lot from it. We also had out interviews with our mission president, President Palmer. It is always fantastic to talk with him because he gives me some great counsel and support.

Regarding the work, we have found a few new investigators in our area. It’s been great here in the Hunter/Hunter East Stake and meeting all the wonderful people in this area. We have taken a few families downtown to see the Christmas lights at Temple Square. It’s been a lot of fun to go down and enjoy the lights and to get to know some of these families.

Probably one of the coolest things that has happen this week was an incredible visit from Elder Ballard from the 12 Apostles! Our entire mission was there to hear from him and Elder Duncan from the Seventy. It was amazing to hear from them. They talked about mainly the Restoration of the Gospel and finding people to teach. It was a great lesson for all of us. I definitely learned a lot from Elder Ballard. They also did a little bit of Q&A with us as well. We all got the opportunity to shake their hands, and it was just awesome!

So, this week was great and I’m excited for this Christmas season. I’m doing very well here in this new area and with my new companion. Thank y’all for everything and for your support! I hope everyone is having a great week, and God bless you!
