Wheek Whone of a Whay Awesome Transfer!


On Monday, we went back to Dos Hombres so the ghost chilli burrito could claim yet another victim: Elder Bartlett. There were six or seven people who tried the challenge, and three of them completed it! That was our p-day.
We had transfer meeting on Tuesday! Our ward got an additional Sister, Sister Jones from my MTC district! So now we have three sisters in the ward. Sister White was replaced in the Spanish branch by Sister Noakes, a sister who until this transfer had been an English missionary. All of the Elders in the district stayed.

We don't have \an extra hour of study in the morning now, since Elder Bartlett is officially no longer green! So between 10:00 am and lunch, we've been going out tracting and contacting people on the street. We've had some success, and it's really strengthening our finding abilities!

We pickerd up a new investigator, Shayla, who's father is a less-active member. She knows nothing about the Church, except what we recently taught her about the Restoration, so we'll see how that goes! We've got high hopes!

Chuck got a job working on an oil rig in Roosevelt, Utah. It's great for him, but he's gone all week! It makes it tough, but we're going to keep in contact with him and teach him as much as possible while he's here on the weekends until his baptism!

Great things are happening in our area! We tried to contact a member on the new move-in list. The member didn't live there, but a girl named Troy did. She told us she didn't know the people we were looking for. So, I told her who we were and what we do. I asked her if she'd like to hear a message about how the gospel of Jesus Christ was restored through a modern prophet. She said, "Yeah, actually. That would be great!"   ...What?...   I thought she must have misheard me, but nope! She was just ready to hear about the restored gospel! Since she lives alone with her infant daughter, we gave her as a referral to the Sisters. I hope things progress with her!
I LOVE being a missionary!

Be excellent! I love you all!
