Me and my new companion.


So some weeks feel slow but quick at the same time but all definitely a great experience :D

So last Monday we had a final district activity because we found out who was getting transferred so it was one last hoorah with everyone.

Tuesday we a couple appointments, but it was mainly a day for Elder Peabody to pack. We had dinner with a member family. She's the one who sent you those pictures a while back. They're really fun! After that we went to go visit another family. Man they are so much fun! The wife is a professional photographer so we were talking about photography for a while because I know I'm only an amateur photographer but want to learn more. So that was cool.

Wednesday the big day came around. We packed it up and headed out to Provo for transfers. We got there a little early because one of the elders in our district was training and they pretty much ride everywhere with us because they live so close. So yeah. I got to see my MTC district which was really nice because I love all of those guys. After hanging out and talking in the gym for a while, we moved in to the chapel and President McCune introduced all of the newbies and assigned them to their trainers. Then everyone else came. Since Spanish Fork area is like one of the last areas to get called, I had to wait in suspense until the very end. My companion is now Elder Doherty. He is 20 years old, he's been on his mission for a year, and he's from Limerick, Ireland! He is so chill. We get along so well..like it's awesome. We're always laughing about something. Never a dull moment between us. That night we had a few appointments but in between I introduced him to both Stake Presidents. That night we had Stake Missionary Correlation for one of our stakes so he was able to meet the Ward Mission Leaders of that stake.

Thursday we had District Training Meeting so we got to meet all of the new missionaries. That was cool so when we got done with that we walked to the front door and it was SNOWING!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO so I was happy about that. We had a few appointments that evening but nothing special after that. We were invited to attend a Bishopric/Stake Presidency meeting that evening where we introduced ourselves and bore our testimonies about our missions. That was cool.

Friday we did some finding activities then went out to the member's house who owns the mink farm and hung little boxes in the mink cages so when he has more mink they'll have a little home. So that was kinda fun. We visited awhile and had a good time with it. That night we had dinner with a family, then went to go meet with another one of our families.

Saturday it snowed like crazy again. We had a few appointments then went back down to Jason R.'s mink farm and did service all day. It was a nice break from the day to day and a good time to get some service in! Walking around proselyting gets really hard sometimes so we need to be anxiously engaged in a good work...physical work. Thank goodness.

Sunday we went to PEC in one of our wards..then stayed all three hours for that. Then had lunch. Then headed over to one of our Stake Centers to hold a baptismal interview. After that, we went to another ward's gospel principles class because they wanted us there from last week because the lesson was missionary oriented. After that we had correlation meeting, then we went to dinner, the we had a few other appointments. 

So that about wraps up this week. Unfortunately, it's really expensive to get your license in Ireland...so I'm the designated driver once again...which I really don't have a problem with. Anyways. Mom, I'm good on face stuff and pants, thanks for asking <3 As for having a less/inactive over at an active members home is strongly recommended for sharing the gospel with them. Give Josh my best and tell that punk to write me back lol I emailed him. What's his myldsmail account name?

That's all folks!

Love you!
