Oct 26th

Things in the mission field are going great. Nothing new really to report. I am still but my companion in now Elder Wadsworth and we are getting along great! We  were in the MTC together so it is pretty fun to have a comp that you have known your whole mission. Sorry about not writing last week but things just got really hectic and president doesn't want us emailing after 6 and before I knew it,it was already past that time. Finally Jake got his eagle. It's really nice to hear about all the people who are just going out on mission because then I just get to come home before all those suckers. lol. that wast laugh out loud that was a person drowning. I don't have a copy of my blessing, I forgot to bring it with me and I tried getting one from online but salt lake say that our Patriarch never sent it to them. I'll try to keep up the good work but California is California. Talk to ya later.

October 12th

Things are still moving along here in the mission, it must have been impossible to get Hannah to clean it out as always. There's a great talk I have been wanting to tell you about for a while now. It's called "His Grace is Sufficient" by Brad Wilcox. it was a devotional given at BYU. Its really great and will give you and entirely different perspective on the Atonement. Transfers came up and I am getting Elder Wadsworth. I was in MTC with him, he is a cool guy and i will really enjoy being comps with him. Our investigators right now will take some time before there are anywhere exciting teaching wise. Here is another picture of my recent convert Blake. He is awesome. He's on house arrest right now for something he did a year ago but the mission president said it was okay to baptise him so we did. You can see his ankle monitor in the picture. He still has thirty days left on it which means I will be here when he gets off. It's so amazing the see the gospel bring miracles in his life. So I took the challenge to ponderize scriptures and right now I am ponderizing 1 Thessalonians 5:16. Hope you guys have spooky court of honor.

Service Project

I did have a good pday. The baptism was amazing and I really enjoyed
being a part of it.

As my ward mission leader, who is way too old to be using these kind
of word so, said general conference was Awesome. In all caps just like
that. My favorite talk was probably the one Elder Utchdorf(if that's
how you spell it) talk during priesthood session. I don't know if you
saw that one or not. I recently watched a talk by Brad Wilcox called
His Grace is Sufficient. I don't know if you have seen it already but
if not it is a really good talk and I would highly recommend it.

Isn't there a saying that a dog takes after it's master? Just kidding.
You can't blame Carly, the last dog she was around was Scout and he
died so....

Nothing has really changed in the mission field, transfers are next
week so idk what will be happening there. 

 Here are some photos of me at a
service project this last week. I don't know why one of them is in
black and white, my companion is kinda a photography geek. Talk to ya
