From Ethan: Monday, August 17, 2015
mid-transfer change up happened! One of the missionaries in the area
next to ours, Wendell, went home so Elder Schuck, Elder Calderon from
Wendell and I are in a trio! Yeah for another Trio! We will cover both
the towns of Wendell and Hagerman for the next four weeks. Elder
Calderon is a Spanish speaking missionary originally from Chile but
moved to Utah a couple years ago. He is our District Leader too! So we
are bouncing between the two areas and using both houses, Wendell is
about 15 miles from Hagerman. It's pretty crazy sometimes but we've got a
good schedule to include both areas.
Cameron Lockler pushed
the baptism back to this weekend the 22nd, because her parents had to
close their restaurant last week and it was a little hectic, but
everything is settled down and she's good for Saturday at Noon! It''s
nice to see Cameron's parents really supporting her in her decision to
be baptized. We have everything set up and it's on like Donkey Kong.
Xandre still is avoiding us and isn't doing well. It'll take time for
him to get back to a point where we can teach him.
In Wendell there is a lot going on! there are two wards over there and
some great investigators on each ward. Also this weekend on the 22nd an
11 year old girl named Marilyn Medina will be baptized! We have already
had a couple lessons with her and will have two more before Saturday.
We've been meeting everyone in Wendell and Elder Calderon has been
meeting everyone here in Hagerman so we've had some great lessons and
such this past week.
We have a bunch of exciting things happening this week so it'll go by
quick! Tomorrow we are going to the Temple together as a District,
that'll be the last time I go here in Idaho. Then on Wednesday we have a
Zone Conference all day and then the two baptisms on Saturday!! It'll
be a joyous week for us!
Here's a picture of last weeks fishing! and also some good ol' Hagermelon's
