Hey Homies,

This week was pretty cool. You know just hangin out, getting a new companion halfway through the transfer and having mine get moved to a different ward because an Elder got his VISA, and covering two wards instead of just one. The usual I guess. But for real I got a new companion now! His name is Elder Sheen. He's awesome. He's also from Idaho! That's two in a row. 3 in total. His companion left a few weeks ago to go to Australia and so he was bouncing around the zone for a few weeks but they decided they would put him with me and have us cover both wards and kick Elder Stallings to another ward. It's been cool. It's actually not as bad as I first thought it would be. We just split up the wards every other day and on Sundays we just go to both! It's super cool. 5 hours of church is fun. It makes Sundays fly by super fast. It's weird.

This week we had a pretty cool finding experience. We went to visit an old potential and he turned out to be super receptive. That really hasn't happened to us a ton in this area. We were able to teaching him a little first lesson and set up another time to come back this week. It was cool to see Heavenly Father put someone who was willing to listen in our path. We've had a few of those this week. He was the only one that we actually taught, but we've been able to set up some really good return appointments for this week. We've started to sow even more and hopefully soon will come the time for reaping!

Also I had the opportunity to sing in Sacrament meeting yesterday. It was awesome. I sang hymn 97 "Lead, Kindly Light". It was planned but the person in charge of making the programs forgot, so I thought we weren't going to do it but then they announced a change in the program so it was all good. It was my first time ever singing alone at church! I was only having medium panic attacks as I walked up to the stand. It was a great experience. Hopefully I get to do it again soon!

Well, I hope ya'll have a great week and that all the things you do will be successful!! Love love love.

Keep it real.
