Time is Flying

I am not entirely sure where the time has gone but I have been out in the field for 9 months now! I have been in Union for 3 transfers. The longest I have been in an area. I have been doing a lot of service work which is super awesome. Last week the bishop hit a cow. He was driving below the speed limit on a rod and came around a curve and BAM, there was a cow. It kind of just rolled over the car. Needless to say everyone is okay. Well except the cow. I has definitely gotten cold out here. There is snow on the mountains and it’s super pretty. I have been so super busy with the holidays coming up. This time of year is always crazy but it’s nice knowing that I am doing great work. I hope everyone is doing well and I love you guys.

Hey everyone!

Transfers have been crazy. I am now a trainer. It’s so weird to think about. I feel like I just started my mission and now I am a trainer! Something else that is super exciting I finally get to drive again. I do get to stay in Oregon for another transfer and get some more work done here. My new companion and trainee is Elder Skipper. He is from Dothan, Alabama. Things are really starting to pick up with the holidays rolling in and what not. Pray and have faith and you will be blessed.

For those of you who do not know, I have transferred to Oregon. It’s a really cool place. The people here are amazing. On Tuesdays I get to help out with some seniors at a lunch meal. So far I am loving my mission. It’s hard to believe I have been out in the field for almost 7 months now. Back in Caldwell I met some pretty amazing people there as well. Here are a few pictures to show you guys what all I have been up to.
