Service!


Hey all, 


It's been a busy week. Not much time left in the mission so it's good to keep things busy. 

I would say this has been a week of service. We did 6 different service projects this week. The first one we did was helping a less active family move out. Moving has easily been the most common form of service for me. It's probably that way for most missionaries. The second was a member in his ward that just got a new store and was doing some landscaping so we offered to help him. The third was an older couple in the Ward that was moving dirt into their garden box, so we helped them with that. The fourth was a younger couple in the Ward that is working on an old house they bought to rent out to others, they were reluctant to let us help but we helped them anyways. The fifth was an old couple in our Ward that needed their lawn mowed and hedges trimmed, so we did that for them. And the sixth, last but not least, we went to the assisted living center here in Cody and did the weekly game of bingo with the old folks. And we will continue to do that one as well. So yeah, lots of good was done that I'm happy about. 

On some not so good news, I broke my bike this week. I was going up a steep hill and my chain came off the gear and got stuck really bad in between two of the other gears. Well in the process of yanking the chain out, we bent the piece of metal that the gear shifter is attached too. Not long after that I tried to bend it back in place using the tactic of kicking(smart right?) and snapped it off completely. Not much I can do about that. But, the other set of elders here in Cody said I could use one of their bikes for a couple of weeks because they won't be using it. It'll work out. 

But to lighten the mood again, we have a baptism on Saturday! It's a couple that we have been working with for a good while now. She is a nonmember and he is a member. They've just clung to the gospel and have done everything we have committed them to do to the T. The bishop interviewed him and he's going to baptize her. I think the bishop was excited about it, at least it sounded like it in Ward Council. But I will let you know how it goes next week. And hopefully the two young men that we are teaching get baptized in the near future. I may be home before it happens but I'm confident it will. They are too solid not to. 

There's not much more for this week. But I love the changes this work brings into the lives of others. It shows me that this message is true and good. I love you all. Keep up the good work!

Had to say bye to Elder Gutierrez and Maynard. I will miss those guys!

Transfers


Hey all my people, 


Got transfer news yesterday. Gonna stay in Cody to finish my mission with Elder Munroe. Should be good. It's a race against time to get as much done as possible! 

This week was fun. The other elders in Cody were teaching a guy that moved into our Ward and he got baptized on Saturday. Me and Elder Munroe set up the whole thing so it was fun to be part of it. He was super solid. Now me and Elder Munroe get to do his new member lessons. 

As well as that, the two young boys that we are teaching are getting back from a cruise so we can keep teaching them now. We think we can teach them and have them baptized by the end of June. Pray that every thing works out! 

Time is flying. Gotta keep moving along! Love you all. The church is true.

Hey everyone, 


Hope your week was good. Our was great as well. 

We had Stake Conference this week as well as Mission tour. Elder Dyches came and visited the Mission as well as the Cody Stake, so I got to see him extra. But it was a really uplifting week and I learned a lot. We also got to have a lesson with a man that moved into our Ward that's getting baptized. So that was a pleasant surprise. He's getting baptized on Saturday so it will be a great experience. 

Along with that we also got to do some cattle work! We did some branding for some members in our Ward. Man that's a work out! We were so sweaty and dirty afterwards. Nothing like the smell of cow crap and burnt hair. It'll take a while to get the smell out of our clothes for sure. I'll get some pictures in as well. 

The work moves along. I'm enjoying it while it lasts. Love you all, hope you have a good week!

Mothers Day was good!


I hope your Mother's Day was good, cause mine was super good. 

Cody is going crazy right now. This tourist town is coming alive because Yellowstone has opened up. And there is only more and more people to come! All the natives of the town know not to drive on the main road because it will take you longer than the back roads take. 

We are working with a few good people right now. We have three for sure baptisms within the near future. Hopefully some more too. Our bishopric is really funny because they are making it a race for before I go  home. Their like, a month and a half to baptize these people, let's go! So I'm getting good support to keep working! 

That's all for this week! I hope you all enjoy your week. Love you guys.

Isn't Spring Supposed to be here again?


It's Monday again! 


It's been a pretty good week. Me and Elder Munroe are finally figuring this place out. There is a ton to be done, we just need to do it right. A lot of part member families and less actives that are on the edge. We were able to have 5 investigators at church and we put someone on date for baptism this week as well. We are hoping to see a few by the end of this transfer.

The members seem pretty excited as well. I guess change is good every once in a while. 

As for new experiences, we had one this week. I was officially chased by a dog for the first time on my mission. Well, two dogs. We were knocking on a former investigators door and his yard is closed in by 4 1/2 foot tall fence all around his house. So we closed the fence behind us and knocked. Well not long after that a Pitbull and Rottweiler come tearing around the corner looking pretty mad. So me and Elder Munroe ran for our lives and jumped his fence like we've never jumped before! After wards we couldn't stop laughing cause it felt like we were in a corny Mormon missionary movie or something like that. But really though, those dogs were out for blood. 

We also had a pretty awesome lesson with an investigator this week. She grew up Christian but has a hard time believing in what she grew up in. As we progressed in the lesson she opened up and told us that she was just scared that she was questioning the things her parents taught her because it’s all she knows, but she feels something is missing from it. We were able to reassure her that questions are good and that some of the things she was taught aren't entirely true about the nature of God and the gospel message. She completely understood the great apostasy and was really open to reading the book of Mormon to get some new knowledge. God is preparing people for the truth my friends!!

With that, I would like to say that this is the work of God and that he lives and loves us. This is his church that he established from the beginning so that all might have the opportunity for eternal life. I know it’s true! Have a good week, I love you all!

New Area


Hey Hey Hey!!

Been a long but good week. I was so sad to leave the YSA. But I can't be in the most awesome area forever unfortunately. I will definitely miss all the people who have touched me so deeply.

This is the first time that I've been doubled into an area so it’s a new experience. I kind of feel like a chicken running around with its head cut off. Usually I have a companion that knows everybody already and can kind of lead out for a bit, but not here! But this is a good place to be doubled into. The sisters that were here before were great and worked hard, but the attitude was kind of stagnant so the wards were ready for change. They get all lit up and say, “oh wow we have Elders now!” So it’s just good for change every once in a while. 

As far as what we have been doing, simply just hitting the pavement. We got a box of 40 copies of the Book of Mormon on Thursday and we are trying to hand them all out by the end of next week. We are probably a third of the way in right now and we have been tracting so much. And we are just trying to get as much fire into both of the wards to be missionary minded. The third ward bishop is such a boss. Super funny and he has a fun little family. And he actually has a son out on a mission right now as well.  And there is like three people that come to the third ward regularly and are not members. I guess they have just been too stubborn in the past to get baptized or something like that. It will just take a lot of love and service to soften some hearts of these stubborn Wyomingites!! 

Well, for this week I think that’s all. Just work work work work! My companion has really impressed me. He's ready to go to work and so far he's been a great support and I have no complaints. We will have to see if he's willing to keep the pace we've been going at though, cause I'm gonna finish my mission strong that’s for sure! And this may be my last area so I have to go out with a bang. No regrets right? 

Last of all, know that I know that this is God’s work and he wants nothing more than to see it move forward. You can either hop on and be a part of it or watch it go by but either is going! I hope your week goes good for all of you. I love you all.

Transfer news are you ready? I'm getting transferred down to Cody Wyoming! I'm gonna be with Elder Monroe. I don't know him real well but I have been around him a bit in great falls. I'm super sad to leave the YSA  but change is good. There is much more to come! Love you all!!

Miscommunication

Hey all, 

A slow but busy week. We for some reason didn't have much lessons but we did try to work and find a lot. 

A funny story that happened this week. So about 6 weeks ago a guy self-referred himself to the Bozeman 3rd Ward missionaries online. So the 3rd Ward Sisters gave him to us cause he is a YSA. So we go and contact him and tell him where our church is and when it starts and all of the little details. So when we told him where the church was we told him it's on the corner of south 5th and Grant. Well after that, 6 weeks goes by and we haven't been able to make contact with him again. We text him, knock on his door and call him. Nothing works. Finally this last Thursday he replies and is like who is this and why won't you leave me alone. And we're like, it's the missionaries that you wanted to meet with and come to church with. And he replies, what are you talking about I thought I joined you guys already? And we are like, what do you mean? And he's like I've been going to the building on the corner of south 5th and grant every week. And we sit there for a second and realize that right across the street (also the corner of south 5th and Grant) is a college fraternity house. So this awesome self-referral has been going to a frat house for 6 weeks and is now going to be joining them soon. He was like, I had no idea you guys had so much fun thank you so much. So we had to tell him the awkward info that we were the building on the other side of the corner. He texted us back and was like, so the organization I'm joining is not the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints? And we're like no. And then he wouldn't respond again so I think he decided he wanted to stay with the frat house instead. So yeah, we converted a self-referral guy to a college fraternity, that's some quality missionary work right there. This goes to show that we as members and missionaries need to be VERY specific with the little details when talking to non-members. Oops. 

On a brighter note, some awesome members that went to conference over the weekend brought us up some Chick-Fil-A on their way back. It was delightful. I feel the love. 

Over all, the life in the YSA is the best. Good people, good work, I'm gonna hate the day when I have to leave. So I'll make it count while I'm here. 

The church is true for sure. But more importantly, the church is true because God loves us and loves us. I hope you all feel that too. I love you all, have a good week!

I want it to be Summer already


Dearest People, 

It's been great. Partly because of general conference, which all of you know about already. I got a lot of strength from it and hopefully you did too. 

Not gonna lie these weekly emails are getting really hard to keep writing. I never know what to write if nothing out of the ordinary happened. 

The best thing that happened was our Investigator Emilio got interviewed by our mission president so he could be interviewed by a general authority to get baptized! He's so ready. 

As well with that, we had interviews with our mission president this last Friday. He told me my transfer news ahead of time so I already know it but I'm not at liberty to tell others haha. Anywho, it was good. I got a lot of great advice from him. 

That's all for this week. I hope your week goes well for you! Love you all!

The Spirit Works


Hey all, 

It's been a fantastic week. Lots of work. Our stake president has set a goal for each area of how many lessons he thinks is possible in a week and we got it this week so that felt good. And honestly, we could probably do even more than that if we tried a little harder. 

This week instead of writing out all of the little details I just want to write one story in detail. I think it's one worth writing out. I think it shows that the spirit of God is ALWAYS the the ultimate source of conversion. Nothing else can cause a change of heart in such a way. 

We have this certain investigator who has been coming to church for a while now. He comes with some of his close family that are YSA's and solid members of the church. He's been coming consistently for a few months now, and he fits right in. Wears a suit and everything. So we started meeting with him about 6 weeks ago to go through the lessons with him. When we met with him the first time he expressed his desire to find the right path for his life and to grow closer to God. He even expressed some desire to be baptized. We promised him that the message and the invitations we will give him with do just that for him. So, we have been meeting with him about twice a week up until this point. And through all of it we could see him grow. His confidence in making decisions and firmness in keeping the commandments is now very evident. And this last Saturday we had a lesson in which all of it came together in a powerful way. The lesson before Saturday he brought up his concern with Thomas S Monson being a prophet. He just wasn't sure if he was a prophet of God. His background is a little unique because he comes from a break off version of the LDS church so he believes in Joseph smith but after that is where he gets unsure. So we invited him to watch Dare to Stand Alone by President Monson and then to pray and ask God if he truly was a prophet. So here we are in the lesson on Saturday and we ask him how his experience went with the President Monsons talk. Right after we ask him he just gets a big smile on his face and the room just gets silent and reverent. And then his face got serious and then he continues to describe his experience he had while praying for the truth. He then starts to describe the feeling he had in his heart as he prayed. He said he had felt more peace and joy come into his heart than he had ever felt before. And in that moment he knew that all of the things he had being doing were pleasing to God and he felt a calm assurance that he was on the right path. He's now crying, as well as the rest of us. And then he told us that he knows without a doubt that this church is Gods church and he is so grateful to be a part of it. With many tears falling in the room we all sat there in silence for about 3 minutes. There was such a reverence and peace in the room. We didn't even try to teach much after that. We just talked about the priesthood for a few minutes and then realized that we were killing the spirit so we stopped. We just soaked in the spirit for like 5 minutes at the end. And then we set up our next appointment. So little was said in that lesson but we all learned so much. The simplicity and power of the spirit is more than enough to change lives. And that ultimately is the feelings of God’s love. It was such a good experience. And it taught me that sometimes we just need to simply and humbly ask God for truth. And with that, I invite you all to pray your questions to God so they can be answered at general conference. I promise they will be answered! 

I love you all! I hope you have a good week.

We survived Spring Break!


Another week down in the MBM. 

It was surprisingly good too. I thought it would suck cause it's spring break here so all of our investigators and members are gone, but it turned out well. We stayed pretty busy for the most part and had more lessons than we expected. 

One of the things that kept us pretty busy all week was exchanges. We went to every Elders area in the zone and blitzed their area. We just tried to find some new investigators and get some good things going to help out as much as possible. It was fun because the splits were only like 4 hours long so we just went hard for those 4 hours. We found some new investigators so that was good. 

Along with that we did Zone Training this last Friday. It was one of the better ones we've been a part of. I really felt the spirit in it. For me I really like the message of hope that it gave. We just have to trust in the Lord that there is people to be found. Sometimes we lose focus of that simple truth. 

The biggest news of this week was the baptism of Kelsie. It was one of the best baptisms I've been to. She was more than ready and she had so much support. I think there was around 55 people there. She had a bunch of family and friends come up from Utah to support her and her family from Hamilton came as well. And just some members from the Ward too. It was really well planned out so everything went really smoothly. Besides the fact that the font only filled up to about a foot and a half of water. But besides that it went really well. And her confirmation was great too. The whole day we were on a high. And she already has a meeting set up with the bishop so she can get a temple recommend. We are super happy for her! 

That's the main stuff from this week! I hope your week goes good too! Love you all!

Spring Break


Hey all, 

It's been a great week! It's been great for a couple of reasons. 

First of all, I'm just glad in general that I'm staying in the YSA. This place is too much of a blast to leave. There are lots of fun members and lots of good work that I love to death. It will be a sad day for when I have to leave. 

We did some new things this week. So because it's spring break our institute teacher was gone last Tuesday on vacation. So, we had to sub for him. Yes, we taught institute. In fact we taught it two weeks in a row. That stuff is scary! The first week we did it I almost threw up. But they all ended up being pretty good. They were by no means as deep as the normal teacher but the spirit was still there. So yeah, that was a new experience for me. 

We also did a lot of finding this week. It was very needed because we have been slacking. It's healthy to get out and tract and contact random people. We walked around downtown Bozeman for a bit and met some drunk people, a homeless guy with a Chihuahua, etc. 

Another new experience we had was an interview with someone from the grace bible church in town. This guy just walked into the institute and asked us if he could ask us some questions, so we sat down for an hour and answered a bunch of questions he asked us. I'm not quite sure of how I felt about it. But he was a nice guy so it was all good. I think we gave him some answers that he wasn't expecting so that was good. If anything came from it hopefully he has a little bit clearer of an understanding of what we believe. And he accepted a copy of the Book of Mormon as well so that was cool. 

As of right now we are just in anticipation of Kelsie's baptism on Saturday. She's so ready and we are pumped for it! This week is going to feel like forever! Anyways, I love you all and hope your week is good!

Transfer News


Well we got transfer news. Another 6 weeks in the YSA! I'm super pumped about that. I will be staying with Elder Tippetts too. There is a lot going on right now so I'm glad to stay to see it all pan out. We have a baptism coming up on the 18 with Kelsie so that will be a super good experience. We also have a couple of other people who want to be baptized in the near future, hopefully within the next 2 months. 

Now with me staying in Bozeman for another transfer I will have been in the Bozeman zone for just under a year. If I stay for a fourth transfer in the YSA then it will be a year! 

This week had too much to write! But I will tag some pictures for y'all! Love you guys!

5 days in a row


Hey all, 

It's been a really busy week. We had quite a few lessons and big meetings, it feels like there is too much to count. 

We had a super good zone conference this Tuesday. We were the host zone so we had to make sure the program was all put together and what not. It was a little stressful but not too bad. A ton of the training was on how right now in the world people ages 14-26 are most open to the gospel. And that got me pumped because that's who we cover! And it's true, there are so many people who are receptive. 

I also got to go on an exchange with an elder in my zone. His name is Elder Muhlestein. It was quite the party. We mostly did finding the whole time so it was kind of a grind but I need a good grind every once in a while. 

Our progressing investigator Kelsie is doing super good. She kept wanting to meet over and over so ended up having 5 lessons with her this week. Which I'm really happy about. And we are having another one tonight. She's a better member than me and she's not even a member yet! And she's visited the temple twice now. That's how many times I've seen the temple in a year and a half, so yeah I need to step up my game. 

I just love the YSA Ward here so much. They are all so awesome and they all do a ton of missionary work. It's the dream. I'm hoping I stay another transfer, but that usually means I'll leave. It sucks how that works.

And last of all, we did some fun service this week. We volunteer at a thrift store called sacks. It's a good time. You find some strange stuff let me tell ya! And they give us a 50% discount on everything so that's a bonus. But I like helping out anyways. 

So, that's my week. I hope yours was great and that this one is great too! I love you all!

A Place of Love and Beauty


Dearest Family and Friends, 

It's been a stellar week. Pretty tiring but stellar. One of our recent converts, Meg, got to go to the temple for the first time on the Saturday before the last! It was a super great experience for her. I got a picture with her holding her temple recommend cause she was so pumped to go. She got to take some family names and do baptisms for them. She also went again this last Saturday because she loved it too much haha. And guess what? I got to go the temple that same day too! I finally got to go to the temple after 19 months! It was great! We didn't go with Meg, we had exchanges planned with the assistants so we could be able to make it to the endowment and sealing of a family that Elder Tippetts taught in one of his areas. So we just were at the temple at the same time as Meg. It was great. And that was the first time that I had ever been to a sealing too. Quite the experience, I really enjoyed it. As well as Meg being there, Kelsey came too. She is our investigator on date for baptism next month. She loved it and had a really special experience just waiting in the waiting room. We had a lesson with her last night and she can't wait to go in and do some work there.

Like I said earlier, we went on an exchange with the assistants in Billings. It was a good time. It was also like a reunion. Elder Pett and Hoschouer and us are in the same transfer group so it was a little too fun. We reminisced a lot and me and Elder Hoschouer and Tippetts were all in the same room in the MTC so we could talk for days. But we did get some stuff done at least. 

We tried to get more creative with our finding efforts this week as well. On Valentine's Day we did a "love" Survey lol. It was super cheesy but it was different. We just walked around campus and had a bunch of these slips of paper for random students to fill out. It just had 4 questions that talked about love and Gods love for us. Surprisingly 50% of the people didn't even believe in God. Usually in Montana everyone has a Christian background so I'm not used to the variety of a college. It's good for me though, it stretches my understanding of things. 

Besides that just a bunch of small miracles. It's hard to keep track. One of our investigators we met with this week expressed all the things he was struggling with. He needs different work and is having a lot of family struggles. Because of all of this he's trying to know if Christ is real so we've been working with him a ton on living the gospel to get a spiritual confirmation and an experience with the atonement. So we asked him to pray right there for help with us. Right after he finished the prayer one of his friends texted him with some temporary work that he had for him. Which is exactly what he was needing was a new job. Miracles do happen, don't deny them! 

That's just a small little snapshot of the week, there's too much to write down. When you pay attention to the small things you don't have enough time or room to even write it all down! This is Gods work, this is his church and I know it. Hope you all have a good week! Enjoy the little things! Love you all :)

Can’t Complain


I hope your week was good! 

We have had some really good things happen this week. A bunch of the other missionaries in our zone keep giving us referrals because they keep coming across YSA people. So we have some really good things going. We have 3 people on date for baptism. The first is Alex, she's been working with the missionaries for a while now we just finally got her to commit. She's awesome and comes to church every week. The second is a girl named Kelsie. She was found in Belgrade and is a total miracle. She is already in Alma 3 and super into it and feels the spirit. She also has two friends on a mission which were really good examples for her too. And the last is Amelie. He's a man from Mexico that has a bunch of family in the Ward. So he's been coming to church for a while now and we had our first lesson with him last week and he said he knows this is the church he wants to stay with because of the way he feels. He also has accepted a baptismal commitment but he may take some more time to get that done because of some of his history. 


We also had Meg, our recent convert from Georgia go to the temple to do baptisms for the dead for the first time. She said it was such a good experience and she was like glowing. So that was also a huge miracle. She's on fire, she already has a calling and everything! 

Besides that, just staying busy. The members here help out so much. It's the dream really. Couldn't ask for a better situation. Just gotta take advantage of it while I got it! Thanks love you :)

Ups and Downs


Hey hey! 

It's been a great two weeks. So much had happened I can't even remember half of it. But that's a good thing though right? 

So me and Elder Tippetts have really been getting into the swing of things. We know what each of us wants and are setting goals and working together well to help our area and the zone. We also meet with our stake president once a month to talk about his vision. We met with him yesterday to talk about how we can work together. It seems to look pretty good. He's got a lot of drive, which is what we need. 

The daily life of being a YSA missionary is always changing! That’s the best part about it. You never know what you're going to get, it's a thrill. But as a part of that, you get lots of ups and downs. We found a super sweet guy named Philip this week that was sooo interested and wanted to learn so bad. We had a great first lesson with him and he ate it up. Then two days later he dropped us. It was such a sad day. And there was nothing we can do about it besides try to stay in contact. And he totally felt the spirit in that lesson. So that sucked. But we also have a sweet girl named Kelsie that got referred to us. She's great and is preparing to be baptized at the beginning of next month. So that's an up. Super grateful for her. All around our teaching pool is expanding, it just has a lot of people come on and off of it. But that's kind of the culture of young adults. Still love it and wouldn't want it any other way here. 

It's been a blur over all. Me and Elder Tippetts are just getting a handle on the ropes. We did a zone training on Friday that was a good learning experience. When all eyes are on you, things can seem a little dicey, but you get a lot of help from above as well. Plus our zone is awesome so I really love being around them. 

I think the thing that's been on my mind over all is how small and simple things brings about greater things. The little daily stretches of faith and all the change leads to great results. Both in me and in others. You just never fully know what your efforts are doing. Sometimes miracles happen and you never even know it! That's why you just keep going and the big picture starts to come together over time. 

Missionary work is blast. Never a boring day! I hope your week goes great as well. Love you all and miss you.

Work


So it's warmed up a little bit here! I'm very happy about that. Since it snowed in November it hasn't melted so I haven’t even seen the ground for 2 months, so it's nice to see what grass looks like again. 

We've had a super busy week, it was nice. Lots of lessons with investigators and less actives. The members are really great about reaching out to their friends. Makes life good as a missionary. 

Transfer news. Elder Dougherty is being transferred out and my new companion is Elder Tippitts. He came out with me and we actually were in the same MTC room. He's a good guy and he's pretty fun. The YSA will love him. 

I also went on another exchange back to Belgrade with Elder Lester. I got to go see Jennifer Jones and get a nice up date. She's doing great, it was good to see! Nothing better than seeing old friends doing well. 

Not a whole lot to report on this week. I love you all. The church is true. More fun to come!

We had a little dinner get together at Megan's house. And then we had another one at another family's house. YSA life. 

Meg just got baptized!
