How about those Cubs!! The city is totally alive! We hear about the cubs all the time.  I am outside of the actually "city" now so I am sure downtown is crazy... but it's alright!  This will probably be my weekly because we actually came downtown today so I won't get much time.  Here's a pic of some stores downtown! my new comp and a few of my former also Elder Rowe who came out with me.   I know I need a haircut soooo bad. I just don't wanna pay!! And nobody here can do it. We will get one soon.

Conference was awesome! We watched the first session while teaching some investigators that we will baptize before Thanksgiving:) how cool!! Last week in church this guy came up to us and was like, "Hey Elders, I have been inactive for 15 years and now I am coming back. I need you to baptize my two children" ahh! How cool:) oh and that baptism I mentioned awhile back will be next Thursday!! I am stoked for that too because he still wants me to do it:)

Hello everyone!
This week was a blast! My new companion, Elder Luccion, is such a good guy! He is from Argentina and has committed to helping me learn his accent. Heck yes. So we made the switch this last Tuesday and really felt the lag of switching companions. I almost forgot how much transfers takes it out of you! Even if you are not the one leaving the area it is still a draining experience. So as far as that goes, we are stoked to get rolling in the work this week.

Just to introduce him to the area we took a trip to the hospital for Me. I try to be tough (not really) but I was having a pain in my side and chest. So after EKG and xray they found nothing and kicked me to the curb.

As far as roaches go I have good news. They are about as scarce as new investigators! Haha just kidding. But for real we have been kicking butt in this war. Probably because I can kill them and I'm pretty sure they can't kill me. Pretty sure.

We had a great time finding the other day! My favorite part was right at the end of the night we were blessed to teach the entire restoration to an attentive dude on his porch step! Gotta find joy in the little things right? :)

As always, thank you so much for your love and support. I know this work is true. I know it's fun to do. #ryhmesforthework Here is a picture of the new comp we are taking a break drinking some Watermelon Arizona

Ok so with my current comp, his name is Elder Hall and he is from South Jordan. He has been out a few months less than me. We get along great actually! But he is being transferred!! We got the call this last Saturday and he is out! I am getting this guy named Elder Luccion! I already know him and we are homies:)  Just to keep you straight mom here is the last year or so. I was trained in Gurnee by Limón, then Peralta. Then I went to Chi 3 in a trio for a week with Recillas and Rejas. Then just with Rejas. The I got Elder Vandenhazel, for three transfers. Now I am with Elder Hall and tomorrow I will be with Luccion. Those are my comps! Have a great week. I have amazing news!!!! :) an investigator asked if I would baptize him this week?!!!!! Ahhhh!!! :)
