Good Morning!

   This week has been pretty awesome and very hectic. The craziness started on Friday when my companion, Elder Hedman left. He has completed his mission and for some reason they send those people who are going home a few days early. Also yesterday we got our calls for the new transfer. I am staying in Wright and have the opportunity to train a brand new missionary again. I am excited to stay in Wright, I am loving this area.

    One awesome thing that happened this week was that we had a zone training meeting on Tuesday. At that meeting they had the departing testimonies of the missionaries that were going home. It was amazing to be able to feel their spirit and to see how they have become converted to the gospel. One of those missionaries was Elder Vasquez. Elder Vasquez actually served right around me when I first came out. It was incredible to see the difference from then until now. The gospel of Jesus Christ really does change lives for the better. We have been able to visit with many people and to see the gospel truly bless their lives. In my studies I have been reading the Old Testament. It is very confusing sometimes but I still have learned a lot. A couple times as it is talking about the early prophets it says that they walked with God. They were truly converted to the gospel and got to the point of having the opportunity to walk with God. I know the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true. It has the power to make us who God wants us to be as we humble live the Gospel every day. I thank you all for the continued support.

Hello again!!!

  Well This week was pretty awesome and somewhat uneventful. One of
the Assistants in our mission came on an exchange with us just for a
day which was really awesome! They have been making rounds around the
mission and going with every companionship. It was a great learning
opportunity for me and I learned a lot!

Another amazing thing that happened this week happened in fact just
yesterday! The Father of the family that got baptized last week was
ordained to the Aaronic priesthood. I had the opportunity to
participate in that experience. It was amazing. I have truly been
blessed to see so many people learn and progress more in the gospel
and come closer to Christ. Also Yesterday was my companions last
Sunday in the mission field as he is completing his mission this
Saturday. This small little town continually surprises me with all the
amazing things that are  happening here, and all the wonderful people
that I am blessed to come in contact with. I am loving every moment
out here and it continues to be an amazing experience. I love this
gospel and I love sharing it!

Hi everybody!!

    Well everything is going all Wright!!! This week has been pretty
awesome!! On Thursday we had another all day excursion to Billings
where we got to meet our new mission President, President Wadsworth!
He is super nice and I am excited for his new perspective on the
mission. It was a lot of driving that was well worth it.
Also this week we had a Baptism!!! On the 4th of July too!!! It almost
seemed like the best 4th of July Ever! It was a whole family that got
baptized which makes it even more amazing! 2 kids, their parents and
their Grandma! 3 generations all baptized on the same day! It was an
incredible blessing to have been a part of their lives and to see them
learn and progress in the gospel! My companion had the opportunity to
baptize them. It was an amazing experience to be a part of it all. The
spirit was so strong at their baptism as well as at their confirmation
the next day. I am loving this small little town. The Lord truly
prepares people no matter where they are. I love this area and the
work that I am blessed to be a part of. This truly is the gospel of
Jesus Christ that I am out here sharing with the world. I love it!!

Hello everybody!!

So this week was kinda slow but there were a lot of amazing things
that happened! Here in Wright it is hard to have a lot to do all the
time. There are only 1800 people in the entire town and apparently
2800 people total if you include all the people in a 30 mile radius
from wright. But it is an awesome little town and there is some really
amazing things happening.
The most amazing thing that happened this week was on Thursday. We
have a family here that is working towards baptism but they were
really struggling with the word of wisdom. The father has been chewing
tobacco since the time he was 15 and the mother has an alcohol
problem. They were having a really hard time quitting. On Thursday
they had us come over to give them blessings so they could quit their
bad habits. We talked with them for a little bit then gave them both
blessings for strength to overcome. After we finished the dumped out
all their coffee, tea, alcohol, and tobacco right then. Since then
they have not bought anymore and are doing amazing!!! They are truly
prepared and ready for this gospel. The father told us in one lesson
that throughout his life he has gone from church to church but nothing
ever felt right, and now that he is attending The Church of Jesus
Christ he feels that he has finally found what he has been searching
for all his life. His simple testimony has strengthened mine in so
many ways. I love this blessing i have been given to come and serve in
this area at this time.

Hello Everybody!!

So this was pretty awesome!! The weather was beautiful other than one
thunderstorm that woke me up in the middle of the night. The
thunderstorm was pretty epic though. There was a ton of lighting!!
There seemed to be a flash of lightning every 2-3 seconds, but we were
safe and warm inside our apartment. By morning all was well and the
sun was out.
   However, weather aside this week was amazing! There continues to be
amazing miracles that seem to happen all the time here in wright. This
week ended truly amazingly. Yesterday during church we had an awesome
experience. Elder Hedman and I were teaching the gospel Principles
class. For the lesson we were talking about the life of Christ. During
the lesson Rodney, one of our investigators, answered one of the
question and then proceeded to bear testimony of how he knew that
particular point of doctrine. He already has a powerful testimony of
Christ and as well of the Book of Mormon. It has been amazing to see
him and his family progress in the gospel. They are amazing people.
Also they are preparing for their baptism which will be this Saturday,
on the 4th of July. That will be an amazing day!!
   I Love being a part of the Lord's work. It is such a blessing to me
in my life to be able to see how the gospel of Jesus Christ can and
does change lives!
This is my Joy (Alma 29:9)
