hey! so this week has been kinda... strange. this week makes 1 year. every single day from this point on will only be experienced the one time on the mission! no repeats! to crazy!Monday: so we played broom hockey. it was super fun until all our $ store brooms broke! than it wasn't so fun. but it turned out to be ok.
uh. im not sure what you want to hear... but here goes.
sister lacomb got the ring out from around the neck in my white shirts!
we had a member of the ward give us like 3 pies.
i might of stained my favorite pants... not sure yet though!
i got like 5 pairs of new socks.
fixed my bike.
ate some spetzel.
my life is not that interesting... sorry i dont have anything for you. i love you mom!
so... a lot has happened this week!
1 this monday our cameras got stolen... so no pictures! some guy broke into the church building that we play sports at. he stole both our cameras... that was really irritating!
2 He also stole our phone... so we had to get a new phone from the mission office! and get all our contacts from the sister missionaries in the ward! than we had to get all of the other numbers we had lost from different people! it was terrible! and turns out before we could cancel the phone he started calling people and texting people profanity! it was super crazy!
3 i was doing a bunny hop in the middle of the road over a chunk of asphalt and when i landed, my rear derailer got stuck in my spokes and twisted itself all the way around the tire! this caused the bike to come to a skidding stop! i pulled the derailer out of the spokes and gingerly road home. i was luckily able to fix the bike derailer almost totally, it only skips 1 gear now. and only occasionally.
4 a bird pooped on me sunday...gross!
5 friday packing calls came out. i am now down in Rancho cucomanga in the Terra vista ward. i am serving with elder Welch. he is from Farr West UT.
Rick was pretty bumped that we where leaving! but he is super awesome, we are going to be staying in contact.
Tiffany was really sad! she gave me a beanie animal. his name is Boo! that was super nice of her :)
Lon was pretty bumbed too! he gave us each Raspberry pies! they are a small computer similar to an arduino! they are so cool!
miguel is sad that he has to meet some new guys... but he said he would be ok! he gave us each a pair of socks. it was awesome!
i am excited for this ward! its guna be a blast! i am still in a biking area. but thats ok! i love biking!

this week has been off the wall!
so this week has been super fun! we spent a lot of time with our investigator Rick. he is a super awesome guy! i went over with Elder Law on Wednesday, and Rick connected with him very well. it was a cool experience to get to know Rick better. than on Saturday there was a baptism and we asked Rick to come and give us a ride. well he showed up to give us a ride, but he had slept in and was in his PJs! so he gave us a ride to the baptism and was planning to wait in his car. we assured him that it would be ok for him to come in. so he came in and sat at the back with me. he loved it! during the service he began praying to God in gratitude. after he took us out to eat, and than back to his home to help him out with some stuff. we set up his internet, a royal pain! we had to call customer support after hours of banging our heads against the wall! that was finally set up. that we set up his smart TV. that was a lot easier. so finally at 4:45 he started taking us home, but than remembered something that he wanted to buy at the store for us! so he took us to Ross and bought a cushion for our bike! so we called dinner and asked if we could bring Rick. Sister Allred had some intense migraines. so Rick took us over to there apartment and we gave them a blessing. then he took us home after. we had spent from 9:30-9:00 with Rick. it was intense!

so this week has been a crazy time!Monday we did our normal sports. we played gator ball.
just so you know if you tried to send anything this week the mail was stoled from the mission office this week on Wednesday morning they broke into the church building, broke into the bishops offices looking for money, and than stole the safe with all the
pass ports in it. so any foreign missionaries are kinda messed up right now. they also took the huge mail pile. and a few packages.
i actually dont get to bad with being trunky. it being so easy now iwll probably amke it much harder close to the end. but i still have tons of time to work hard. i am loving this area, and loving the ward.
1 squash is a no for profit farm that a man named jim runs. we do all the work that would normally need done at a farm. everywhwere from planting to maintenance. the farm is a little bigger than if you you went from the stream to highway 9 and from the hill to the swamp. its really all kinds of vegetables.2 ummm, we area planning to visit all our investigators joseph, miguel, charlie and monique, john, anita, a few others. when it comes to picking a street sometimes we have a feeling of where to go. sometimes we just pick a street and go.
3 Gospel principles right now is mostly just us our ward mates our ward mission leader, sitser lacomb Recent convert and sister self a strong member there to support others. and anyone that we bring with us. :)
