Hunter Weeks 5 and 6: Christmas and Now Transfers!!


Good mornin’ everyone! Sorry about not sending an email out last week! But, Merry Christmas! I hope everyone is had a great Christmas! This week has been amazing! We have been having a great past couple of days here in  West Valley! Friday we had our district meeting which was great! Afterwards, I burned my pair of pants for the big 18th month mark! We burned them at our ward mission leaders house, and it was a lot of fun! We went out to Costco afterwards for lunch! It’s was a super awesome time! We also did a little correlation meeting with one of stake presidents to set up a monthly correlations with the ward mission leaders so we can get people on the same page. haha!

Saturday, we had an another baptism! It was a 10 year old that we were teaching and had member friends bring him to church! He is a super awesome kid, and it was amazing to see him get baptized! Yesterday we had Church and we went to three ward’s Christmas programs which was great to see! We had lunch with a member afterwards. Then in the evening we had a half pday so we hung out with a member family, the Rogers, and had our Christmas Eve with them! We had nachos and drinks. We read Luke chapter 2 and watched the Church’s nativity videos.

Of course, I had the opportunity to call home today! It was amazing to see them and to talk with them for a little bit! Hard to believe that was my 3rd call home! It’s been a great 18 months! Hard to believe I only have 6 more months left (5 1/2) till I go home! I hope everyone as a great day, and I love all of y'all! Merry Christmas!

Alright, so for this week, we were super busy! We had another baptism this Saturday as well for someone that me and Elder Gee found at the beginning of the transfer and she was super solid! She is a young mom with 2 kids and her husband is less active. However, they both wanted to come to the LDS Church, and so we came into the picture. It was really awesome! The service was great and was simple! It was perfect! Another major thing that happen was that we got our transfer calls! I will be staying here in Hunter, but my companion, Elder Gee, will be leaving to the Jordan North Stake. I am really going to miss him. My new companion is Elder Dankers. He is a visa waiter for the Philippines, and is waiting in our mission. He’s only been out for one transfer, so I will be follow up training him which should be fun! I am excited to have a greenie and for this next transfer!

Hard to believe that it is 2018 now! I hope everyone had a great New Years! I love all y’all! Stay safe!
