First week with Elder Elton

So this week was awesome!

Tuesday: Left Silver City to go to Lordsburg to pick up Elder Elton. We then shopped, took care of emailing, and unpacked some of his stuff. We ran some errands then went on splits with the Elders Quorum to visit some less actives. It went really well then we were taken out for ice cream. We went to bed a little later because we started planning for our zone meeting tomorrow. Elder Elton is super cool! He is from New Jersey and went to a little of BYU-I before coming out. He and I entered the field at the same time. He is really energetic and is a really good missionary.

Tucson, There and Back Again: A Tale of the Death of Elder Tyler

So by the time you read this I will have a new companion and Elder Tyler will be going through the temple with all the other departing missionaries. Then on Wednesday morning he will be hugging his family! Crazy how time flies and I am grateful that he trained me so well, 2 times. It was such a pleasure to spend, in total, 4 1/2 months together as companions.

Silver City and the Free Dr. Pepper

So this week has been pretty exciting! Our mission was selected to receive iPads! So i am typing this on an iPad!

Monday: So after dinner our appointment canceled so we decided to go find some more people to teach. As we were walking around, we started talking to a man as he was fixing up part of his truck. So in talking with this man we come to find out that he was baptized years ago and is now less active. We started to talk to him and his wife and we were able to set an appointment to return! It was so great!
