Hey mom, so I was at Chick- fil-A in the mall food court and me and my comp where just standing around. All of the sudden this lady walked up to us and said "hi elders, you dont know me and I dont know you but God told me I need a blessing." So I looked at my comp and I was like "can we even do a blessing of comfort in public"? turns out we can (I didn't know that) so we went over to a corner and we gave a blessing in the mall food court. So that was an experience.

The baptism was great! We baptised Alexandria and Corben. I baptised Corben and there was like a light in him after. I was little nervous but it was a really cool experience. 
 Our area is huge. My comp says that we need another group of elders in our mission. There are so many people. 

This one guy we met, his name is Roy.  He fell away from the Church when he was 18 and he joined the army. Now he's 25 has a wife and is about to have a kid and he wants to get back into the Church. So we are going to be meeting with him.

 I think I'll be in El Paso for a couple of months because they keep you north or south for a bit. Well It's been 6 weeks and the mission is going good. It's hard and different but good. It's already been 2 months ( like in a week) crazy how time flies! Love you all.

So my comp has bronchitis (nobody got time for that) and I have a little cough but over all I'm good.
I'm not teaching a whole lot because of the sick comp. Time is moving slow but hey, it's going good, it's better than I thought it would be. The Mesa Ward is making it so much better. I'm still a little home sick but nothing too bad. It's hard but I love El Paso and my comp aka my dad ( they call your trainer your dad)

I'm still trying to figure this whole mission thing out. But hey, that's why I'm here. One thing that's hard is all the little rules and how you have to be perfectly obedient. 

I had to bike 5 miles to church yesterday because we went over the miles for our car. My comp is the district leader and he had to take trips outside our area that he wasn't planning on so thats why we went over. So we got our car taken away for 3 days. We biked a total of 10 miles yesterday so that was fun... hahaha. They had an extra bike in the apartment that I used. 

Mom, I haven't had to speak in church yet and I do think thats a blessing.

I love you guys, I love my sisters, I love the goat, I love Sophie and I hope everyone is doing well!

 Love you! <3 <3
