Yep it was that time again. The dreaded transfers. So sister Waldo left and I just got Sister Hansen. Funny thing she was just companions with my MTC companion. Nothing to exciting has happened this week. We did wake up this morning to our car having shaving cream with oreos and seran wrapped though. And so did the other elders. We all don’t know who did it but it’s super funny. So ya it’s fun up here in New Mexico and we are ready to work!

Yep so this week I got sick. I just slept for most of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. That’s about it. We really didn’t get to much done cuz of it. But I do feel better now.
I also got to give a talk on Sunday (while sick) about how the commandments relate to missionary work. It basically stemmed from Matthew 22 in the bible and how the two greatest commandments are to love God then love your neighbor and how that related to loving others in sharing the gospel. I don’t really remember it cuz of being sick but people told me it was good.
Much Love to All

This week has been AMAZING! We taught 28 lessons (yep that’s right!) Of course they were mostly less active members but still it’s the most I have ever taught and the highest in our zone. With all of that we had a blast.
Yesterday we got to go down to a member’s ranch and help them brand, castrate, ear tag, and vaccinate cows. It was such a fun, dirty, and bloody time. Oh, then we proceeded to have rocky mountain oysters (the result of castration aka cow testicles). I only could take one tiny bite, it just tasted like a ball of fat and then there was still some blood in it so I couldn’t do any more.
Also on Saturday we got to go out to City of Rocks with our investigator and a member. We went lizard hunting and we all caught lizards. It was so fun! I’m so lucky to be out here.
So a scripture a member told me this week comes from 1Coritians1:17 and it talks about how Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel. It really helped me out since I’m 6 months out and have yet to have a baptism.
Bringing the gospel to the middle of nowhere.....
Together in the middle of nowhere. This is a town called Hurly. I don't know if it even shows up on a map
This family just got sealed and we got to be there!
We love the temple!
We attempted a jumping pic and failed....
