This last week we had transfers once again. Elder Cornwall got
transferred to Canby and is a zone leader for the Oregon City zone.
Surprisingly, I am staying in Tigard for another transfer! I am
actually pretty excited to be staying here especially because we are
having a baptism this Saturday! Alexis is getting baptized! Woo! He is
really excited to be getting baptized! It has been really cool to be
able to see him change from the beginning of when we met him up until
now. He is a really great guy!
Anyways, my new companion is Elder Curzon! He is a really cool elder
from Nebraska. Something interesting about him is that since he has
been on his mission, his family moved to Nicaragua, so he will be
returning home to Nicaragua! Also, he goes home in five weeks. This
will be his last area, and I will be his last companion.
I hope you are all doing well! Thanks to all of you for being so
supportive! I love you all! Bye!

Hopefully, everyone is having an equally as great first weeks of 2017
as I am having. Tigard is the place to be right now! The highlight is
that one of our investigators will be getting baptized on the 28th!
His name is Alexis and we have taught him twice now, and he is sooo
solid. He is from El Salvador, but he has been in the states for over
20 years. He has come to church a couple of times and he loves it. He
already has a pretty strong testimony of the gospel! He is amazing!
Earlier this week, we were out visiting some members, and we met this
old guy that was very excited to see us. He invited us in his house
and eventually tells us that he is a really famous singer at senior
centers. At first, I didn't believe him, but then I made the mistake
of telling him to prove it. He then uncovers these monstrous speakers
that he has and starts blasting some music. He goes on to sing the
entirety of the song "That's Life" by Frank Sinatra, and let me tell
you, he went so hard. It was incredible! It was also one of the
funniest things I have ever seen. I was dying.
Anyways, that's the fun story I have for the week! I hope you all
enjoy the cold weather! Stay safe! Bye!

Merry New Year!
How's everybody's 2017 so far? These last couple weeks have been
amazing for us. Christmas was amazing. Our branch did a really cool
Christmas program. It was really nice to go to church on Christmas
Day. It made it really easy to remember what we celebrate! For the
rest of the day, we hung out with some other missionaries and had
dinner. It was a pretty relaxed Christmas. I actually really enjoyed
From a work aspect, we are starting to find people. The members are
really working hard to get us referrals which is great. One of the
members of our branch has brought his friend to church two Sundays in
a row and we have lesson with him . It's going to be great!
I'm really excited! Anyways, I hope you all had wonderful holidays!
Have a great week!
