Ok so Amazing week last week! With a few little bumps, but that's ok. Elder Stephens and I are having a ton of fun! And we also have a third companion now. So Tuesday night, after having a great day, President Murdock calls us and tells us that Elder Rollins will be leaving the Eagle Valley ward, to be a Zone Leader down in Grand Junction, and that his companion, Elder Olivas, will be coming with us for the rest of the transfer. My first though was "Dang we were going to do exchanges this week!!!" As you know I love Elder Rollins so much. So I was very excited for that exchange. Trios are fun! I'm also on exchanges today in Craig. We've been having a great time. Last night Elder Stephens and I split up with one of the companionships here to help them cover more ground. We just went out and OYM'd everybody we saw! IT WAS AWESOME!!!!! I love OYMing so much it's one of my favourite elements of missionary work. So that was awesome. Interesting thing about Craig, Colorado. There are deer EVERYWHERE!!!!! just this morning being in the city itself we've seen 6 last night we saw 5. It's nuts and they're pretty tame-in everyone's back yards and stuff. So Yesterday we woke up early to drive up here, went, to their district meeting and then spent the day with the Elders up here. It was a great day, and then this morning we met at the church and the Sisters made us Breakfast so pretty sweet deal.
Ok now for an awesome Miracle story this week! So every Thursday we go on splits with a priesthood quorum, or a Sister from an auxiliary comes with us to teach lessons. So last Thursday two of the Young Men came with us. Elder Stephens and Elder Olivas took Josh with them to go teach. I went with a young man named Kade to go meet his friends. We met them at the skate park which was cool. And I just started talking to one of them named Connor. After about a minute he says, "I've always wanted to read the Book of Mormon, I just need to get a hold of one." For a minute I thought I was delusional. Understandable, seeing as how very few teenagers ever say that. Then I realized I wasn't. "Well I happen to have one with me right here in my back pack. Do you know how the book of Mormon came to us?" Kade and I then proceeded to teach him the first lesson, and it was AMAZING!!!! He is so prepared and when we followed up with him later that week he'd read and he loved it! I'm so excited to keep working with him!
One thing that I would say to anyone preparing to serve a mission or who is going on a mission soon. If anyone like that even reads my blog. If you know someone like that please tell them this. No matter how much you prepare, no matter what calling your relatives have in the Church. You're not 100% ready to be a missionary. Nor do you know everything. So be humble, respect your trainer even if they aren't perfect. And don't have your mom call the mission office everyday. Yeah that happens in our mission.
I know this Gospel is true I know that Jesus Christ is our Saviour. I know that this is his church!
Con mucho amor,
