Hunter Week 30: Homeward Bound


Well, it’s hard to believe, but this is gonna be my last email! My final week here has been awesome! Tuesday I had my final interview with President Palmer! We talked about after mission life and what I need to do. Thursday we did what we call, Trunky Temple Day! We went to the Bountiful Temple with everyone going home and the President as well. It was awesome. We had a ballin testimony meeting after. There are 17 going home, and 4 of us will be flying to Atlanta. Friday we had our last district meeting! In the evening we went to a member house to burn suits for our 2 year mark! Don’t worry, mom, I just burned my ripped suit pants. Haha! Saturday, we had a mini mission! It was a lot of fun! We did that for most of our day! It was awesome to be with youth preparing for a mission! Sunday, I was able to bear my “farewell testimony” at church! It was awesome!

Well, see y’all soon! I’ll be flying out at 7 am Tuesday from Salt Lake to Atlanta! Then from there to Arkansas! I should be in Arkansas around 3. Thanks for all the love and support! The mission has been amazing! I’ve learn so much! Can’t wait to share with y’all want I have learn! Love y’all!

Hunter Week 29: It's the final countdown.


Hi, everyone! It’s me, Elder Bowie. It’s been another good week here in West Valley! It’s been pretty hot this week with every day in the 90’s, so we’ve been drinking lots of water! Tuesday Elder Golding had our regular interviews with our mission president. Since I’m going home this transfer mine will be this week. It was fun though to go to the mission office, and see some missionaries. Also! Tuesday was my b-day! Hard to believe I’m 21 now! We did a b-day dinner at one of our member’s, the Nelsons, home! It was really awesome of them! Wednesday and Thursday were both slow days, so we mostly just walked around our area.

Friday we had our district meeting which was good as usual! Our lessons that evening canceled unfortunately. Saturday, we helped out some people move out to Magna. Luckily they didn’t have much stuff so it didn’t take long to load and unload their stuff. We then did a district blitz for the Sisters. We just went knocking doors in an apartment complex, but not too many people were home sadly. Then in the evening we went by a few people. Sunday, of course, was good. We had church and a Stake Correlation Meeting in the afternoon. So, it’s been a pretty good week. Thanks again for all the love and support! Love y’all! Hope everyone has a great week!

Hunter Week 28: Almost Summer!


Good morning everyone! Hope everyone had a great week! My week has been tiring, but great! We have done a lot of walking in our area this week which is nice! We had a little bit of a cold front in around Wednesday or Tuesday evening, so the weather wasn’t too bad as well. Not too much success unfortunately, but we are trying to work hard in our area. We are trying to do some work in the one Samoan ward we have. Not a lot of success so far but we are going through the area book as well as some referrals we have. We’re hoping to get some work sparked there.

Thursday evening we had a new investigator lesson which was awesome! They are going to be moving out in a month sadly. They wanted to start meeting with us and to get baptized. So, we are going to start the lessons with them and see how it goes!  The walked around for the rest of our evening.

Friday we had our district meeting which was good as usual. Saturday we did some service for a few people. So, that was good to do. Sunday, we had church, of course. It was great to hear everyone’s testimonies! We also went to the Youth Devotional which was awesome! It’s been a great week here in West Valley and I’m looking forward to this week! Love y’all!
