Life Of A Missionary

This week has been a lot of work! Here is a run through:

Hitting the streets of Albany and Corvallis.

Tuesday we had missionary training with the president then I went up to Corvallis on exchanges where I got to teach and talk to some college folks. That was nice to kind of be back in the real world! Haha!

We taught an institute class Wednesday morning up in Corvallis. That was cool! Wednesday night we got back and Elder Johnson and I went on splits with some ward members. 

Thursday we had zone conference from 8-430. The Spirit was way strong and I learned a lot and felt it was an amazing experience.  After that, we taught some investigators and did some service. 

Typical Oregon scenery.  The Willamette River.

Friday night we did another exchange.  I went with the Spanish elders and taught some lessons in Spanish.  A guy in the apartment next to the Spanish missionaries got in a fight with his sister! Soooo funny! They were punchng each other at three in the morning! They are like 30! Hahah!

Saturday we were up in Corvallis and taught some lessons.  We went to the singles ward dance to say hi to our investigators.

Sunday was church most of the day and then to the Burtons, a family in the ward, to have dinner.

Elders Bird and Johnson hope to seal the deal with the Vaughns!

So we have been busy. The Vaughns are doing great! They're getting baptized this weekend.  We have a few things to work out, so I hope it goes through!

I talked with President (President MacDonald) a little this week.  He is impressed with everything we have accomplished.  We've been blessed with 2 baptisms this first transfer.  We just keep working hard!

I love you! Hope all is well. I  think about you and pray for you constantly. Keep me up to date on things. Have a great week and stay safe.
