#40 Memorial Day Weekend


We have been doing good this week. We are trying our best to keep
busy. We still do a lot of finding but it's fun. We were able to teach
one of our investigators with a baptismal date, Monica. It was a
really awesome lesson. She expressed to us multiple times that she
wants to get baptized but we have been having problems with her
keeping commitments. We told her in this lesson that unless she starts
doing stuff we can't keep coming over. She told us that she honestly
wants to get baptized so she again committed to come to church. Then,
she texted us yesterday morning to get the address from us and then
she never shows up. We are getting ready to go over there and roast
her this week. Haha

Other than that, we have been just doing the usual. Saturday was Elder
Muglestons birthday which was way fun. We pretty much just ate all
day. We went out to Mongolian Barbecue for
lunch and then for dinner some members of the branch got us Olive
Garden. I don't think I've ever been that full in my life. Then, on
Thursday it was Sister Pederson's birthday so we obviously had to get
her a card! It was an amazing card. It had these cats shooting lasers
out of their mouths. It was pretty much the coolest thing ever.

Sounds like everyone's starting to get married. Crazy! Can't wait to
get Brandon's wedding invitation when he gets home. Las Vegas sounds
like it was fun. I would like to go on vacation. Just kidding. Maybe
in like a year.

What is up? Everything is going pretty good. We had a good week this
week.  We actually didn't have a lot of time to work this week. First
of all, Elder Mugleston had some dentist appointments on the opposite
side of the mission. That was fun even though it took up most of our
day. We also had zone meeting and interviews with president. It was
all awesome. It is always really good to talk to president. We talked
a lot about how we can help the branch and the area grow.

The new area is still a big learning process. We are trying to drive
less which takes a lot more careful planning but it's ok. Our
investigators are doing alright. The two investigators we have with a
baptismal date we think are avoiding us so that's not good. We should
be seeing them this week so that should be good. The weather has been
pretty crappy this week. It was wet and cold. Oh well I guess haha.

I still can't believe that school is about over. That is insane! It's
been a long time since I left haha. Haha that's awesome you guys are
going to Las Vegas. It reminded me that Sister Pederson went and saw
the Jacksons on Saturday and got to meet them! Haha it was funny she
was soooo excited! Haha.

Anyways, I don't really know what we are doing today but hopefully we
do something fun. This week should be a good week since we don't have
too many meetings and stuff. But yeah have a great week. Love you
guys. Bye!

#37 Not Today!


Another transfer is completed. Luckily, I'm staying in Molalla. The
only difference is that they are combining a couple of areas which
means I now cover Oregon City as well as Molalla. That also means I
had to pack yesterday which I did not anticipate having to do. I am
moving apartments not too far down the road. I am excited to have a
new area to work in while also being able to work in Molalla. It
should be really interesting.

Anyways, Happy Mothers Day to all the amazing moms out there! We had a
branch lunch yesterday for Mother's Day which was super fun! I have
had so much carne asada these last few days which is awesome because
it's the best food ever. Other than that, I'm excited to take on some
new challenges in a new area with a new companion. I hope you all
enjoy the week and do something cool this week!
