Weekly Update - 09/30/15

Hey Everybody,

This week has been a hard week, but a good week. We had a baptism this
week for Steve Ohlau. He was so ready. He has been working with
missionaries for over 2 years. The baptismal service was so special.
He showed up smiling and left smiling. A lot of his family came up
from the valley. You could just see him radiating with the spirit.
Elder Sorenson who was my companion about 3 months ago came all the
way from Utah with his parents. It was so good to see him again. The
service went awesome and he only had to get dunked once.

There was a huge car show going on here called "The Run of the Pines".
The traffic was so bad though leading up to our house. It took about
30 minutes to get to our home when it normally takes 4 minutes. There
was a parade as well. Elder Sullivan and I made balloon animals as a
way of contacting people.

We got to talk in church as well. I talked about the blessings of
missionary work and Elder Sullivan talked about how God will give us
strength to do missionary work. It was so awesome and amazing.

On Sunday we had a investigator come to church for the first time
since I have been here. It was way amazing.

Transfers was yesterday. Elder Sullivan moved on to Show Low and I
have a trial missionary now. His name is Elder Heaton. What a trial
mission is someone who usually has a mental or physical disability
that is not to bad, but wants to see if he could handle a real
mission. This is going to be an interesting transfer. He is pretty
cool guy though.

Well I love you all.
