Hey mom ! I had a really good week here in Quincy ! So I found out where I'm getting transferred
and it's Elko, Nevada !! I cover the Indian reservation in Idaho ! It's so crazy I'm really pumped to go.
It's crazy that I've been out a year and only have a year to go ! The mission is just cruising by and
I'm grateful to be able to go serve the people of Elko. This week went by really fast for us and we
got a lot of work done. We went to Reno on Monday and had a big BBQ in the park and it was
a lot of fun ! There was about 20 missionaries and we played Frisbee and football and had hamburgers.
The rest of the week went by fast and we taught all of our investigators and almost set one with
a baptismal date but she is going to go home a pray about it. We had a good meeting on Tuesday
about how president wants us to have the vision to baptize because when we baptize someone it is
for the remission of sins and we are the only church that holds the priesthood that allows us to truly
access the atonement of Jesus Christ and it changed the way I contact people because I want to let
everybody know that we hold the keys to enter the Celestial Kingdom ! and then we went to Portola
and the members there had a nice going away BBQ for me and there such a cool family ! They're Hawaiian
and so they gave me a really nice flower necklace. But it's going to be hard to leave because it's just like
home again ! but I know that the Lord needs me to be in Elko and to teach the people there.
So yesterday night I got really sick. Remember the night I graduated and I got really dizzy ? so
that happened to me again last night and idk how I'm even emailing but I'm going to go back to the
apartment and sleep because I have a long day of driving tomorrow ! When I'm on the reservation in
Idaho I will be 4 hours from home so I might make a stop home. Just Kidding!! But thanks for all you do mom !
again and have a great week ! love you mom
also I don't have my new address yet but I will next week !
