Dear Mom,
This has been a great week for Elder P. and I! We found 3 new investigators! One was from tracting, one was a former investigator and the last was a member referral! We committed the last two to a baptismal date of May 16th! We were pleased with their desires to learn more and to become better people as they listened and participated in their first lessons. We have been working long and hard to find new people to teach and we have seen much success as we put forth our faith and as we strive to be obedient and change our routines. It's easy to fall into habits when studying and talking to everyone. We have tried to be better at making our approach more personal and heartfelt and by the spirit. We have seen many blessings because of it. It feels so good to reach the goals we spiritually set and feel our father's love as we aid Him in this work. We love the work and we were pleased to be moved down here from Yakima together. We are striving to help this area as best as…

Hi mom! 
I'm working on a letter to you today and I will have a package to send home soon with random stuff in it.

Yep! Still loving Kennewick! It's great! We just had a stake re-organization but we haven't been affected too much. We are having a short meeting today about it with our zone leaders to find out which wards we cover and stuff but I'm sure it won't affect much. Only one new ward was created. We will also be attending a new building that was recently built! We got to help load stuff into the new building and that was a neat experience! Never done that before! We are likely to be the first missionaries to serve in this new building! We found 4 new investigators this week!
I like that second caption for my photo haha  (I sent him two captions for his "Yolo St." photo from two posts ago--first was "You Only Live Once!", second was "You Only Lack Ordinances!")
We didn't do anything much on easter. It was pretty much a normal d…

9 Month Mark!

Hello all! 
Things are going well here in the WKM! I hit my 9th month on April 2nd and I am absolutely blown away at how fast time is going.
It's great to be back in Tri-Cities! My new zone is all Elders here in Kennewick. I've been running into people I know from Richland and Yakima and it's really weird! My District Leader is really cool but we just got a call saying that he's going home for a medical reason... Darn. That also means we need a new Dl.....Thankfully I wasn't called... 
...my companion was :)
Anyways things are good. We have a car here. It's a 2015 Chevy Cruze. It's not a very powerful car but it gets us places. We have a small area even though it's 2 wards that we cover. It's very spread out though. We pretty much need a car to do anything. We cover the "Rancho Reata" and "Cottonwood Springs" wards. We kinda know what we're doing now, but it won't matter soon. This Sunday we will have a meeting about bou…

Dear Mom, 

We didn't think that we were going to be transferred but near the time that the calls were going to come in we both started to feel that something was coming haha Elder 'P' even called it!
We replaced Sister 'A' and Sister 'M' and this area hasn't seen Elders for several years! Everyone was surprised to see us at church yesterday. It is kinda overwhelming to have 2 wards that you know nothing about but we are getting the hang of it. We go to church for 5 hours on Sunday now!! The RR Ward starts at 11am and CS Ward starts at 1pm. The sisters didn't leave us very many notes so it's been stressful to stay busy all day but we've done a lot of tracting!!! The thing to do when there's nothing else! The stake boundaries will be changing in like 3 weeks anyways so once we get the hang of these wards everything will change. We are just going with it at this point.. haha Not worrying too much about it.
Can you send me a copy of my baby …
