So conference was really good!! The Saturday sessions I watched at the Stake Center in Enumclaw and the Sunday sessions I watched at a members home with an investigator. I was going to bring my note book to write some things I liked, but they were all good talks. I liked Elder Oaks a lot just because he talked about the trinity and how it is FALSE DOCTRINE!!! Everyone here believes in the trinity but not one can explain to me how it is true or where it talks about it because it doesn't talk about it. And it's not true!! Elder Holland also gave a good talk on that back in 2008 that I like. I love how the Prophet of the church talked about how we just need to be kinder!! It is such a simple little thing but it can make all the difference in the world!! Another thing I feel like a lot of them talked about is walking with Christ. Just always turn to him to have him help you make choices no matter what they are because he is never going to lead us astray. They also read the scripture John 3:16 4x that I counted and 3 of them were in the very first session.
Yes I got your package. Thanks! That is cool Ty got his patriarchal blessing those are so cool. Also the weather has been pretty crazy like that here too. Yesterday was like a Sunny day almost the whole day. It was so nice!!! We have not had blue skies since I got here!! I miss the Utah sun. Ha Ha. Tell Eli Happy Birthday. I miss that little punk. The kids are all getting old. That is so weird. Thanks for sending more black pants. There is one thing I have been wanting, a cool CTR ring. I don't know why... I have just liked rings lately.
Transfers... I will be staying here in Victor Falls. Elder White is leaving to be a Zone Leader in Auburn. I am sad he is leaving. He is way cool!! He only has 2 transfers left. My new companion... I don't know who he is. I have never met him but I will find out today.
I love you all!!

So my companion is Elder Medley. I don't know his full name. He is from Las Cruces, New Mexico. He has been out 4 months. I don't know a lot about him because he literally does not talk. It makes it a little tough. I have tried asking him every question in the book and he just gives a short answer and does not talk again. It makes it pretty tough when we are doing studies or planning because he just wont talk. So I said , "you are a quiet one aren't you?" and he just said, "yeah I'm just a thinker and I like to think..."
G. is doing okay. She has been super sick the past week and a half so we have not had any lessons with her. Hopefully she can make it to our lesson tomorrow. Saturday we had another festival of finding day where the whole mission goes out knocking doors from 10 am to 5 pm. With a lunch break of course. It went pretty good and we found 4 potentials in just our area so that is cool! One of them has to be so prepared because me and Elder Payne, who is from Emery, Utah (we switch companions throughout the day) We went to this one gals house and when we started teaching it was just rough and all over the place and we just were not teaching good. But she was still super receptive. When we left we gave her a Book of Mormon and she is going to read it. Which is awesome.
The best part of the week was probably last night. Last night we went to the Enumclaw wards and went in a trio with Elder Pugh who is from Blanding, Utah. He is only on his second transfer but he is a Stud. His companion was going to sing in the choir at the devotional so we went to his area to go to his lessons with him because we did not have any lessons planned. We gave a church tour to this 18 year old girl named T. She was with a member friend. So that was weird being with 2 18 year old girls. Ha Ha. The lesson was way good. They have only been teaching her for a week and she already wants to get baptized. She even is the one who asked her friend to start taking her to church. We talked to her about the sacrament and showed Elder Hollands "Always remember him" video and after the spirit was so strong and we asked her how she felt and she says, "overwhelmed with the spirit!!" So I asked her, "why do you think that is?" and she said "because this is Christs church" It was awesome. I love seeing people make that connection for themselves and seeing the Spirit work inside of them! This church is true and it changes lives and I'm so grateful to be an instrument in the Lords hands at this time. I am able to watch people change. It is amazing.
Love you all.
