Marching Through March

Hey, its been an interesting week. An elder in the Greenwood 1st ward went home for school just last week, so his previous companion Elder Litchfield is now in a trio with us and we have to cover both wards. Elder Litchfield is my 16th companion counting the MTC. Pretty crazy. So we’ve been figuring that out and have taught a couple people, we taught Tom Quednau this week (weve been teaching him for a little while) and had a great lesson with him. We shared a couple Mormon messages with him and taught him more about the importance of the priesthood with things like baptism. He is starting to get it and likes meeting with us. He came to church too! We were super happy about that. It was awesome! A scripture that’s been on my mind lately is Romans 8: 5-6 reminding us to not put our focus on things in this world and the here and now, but rather focus on what we can become and spiritually where we need to be. Hope you start feeling better, I miss all that dang wind! Haha. Gonna be happy to be in it again soon 🙂

Dang. We havent seen snow on the ground for more than a couple days all winter out here. Some big storms came through and knocked trees down with the wind though.

Hey Ma! Wow, spring break already? That’s crazy.
We had two people at church on Sunday and one of ’em, Kendal is getting baptized on the 25th. 🙂 We are super happy for him. He’s a combat veteran at 21 years old. He was in Afghanistan and an IED sent fragments into his kneecap so he was medically discharged. We met with him twice this past week, and he already has the beginnings of a testimony in the BOM. He’s been reading and is obeying the word of wisdom.  I think the discipline he learned helps with that. Haha. So anyways, he’s the big story this week we love the guy and are excited to work with him more.
