Bike races in Old Harbor

My new area (Old Harbor) is way hotter and way dryer. Apparently,  it hasn't rained for 3 months, but it's nice and flat, so riding my bike is like a thousand times easier.

The members here are way cool and really nice, they talk about and discuss the deepest doctrines. In church this Sunday, we talked the whole time on godly intelligence. Honestly, I didn't get what they were saying-- so they all must be smarter than me.

My new companion is way cool, really fun and energetic. I'm much happier to be with him. We live in a four man house and we have a lot of fun together. 

In my new area everyone pimps their bicycles. It's sick! If you're riding and pass someone you just yell, "Race!" and you race right there with a random stranger. It's way fun.

I don't have the means to upload pics today sorry, but I saw the blood moon too. We had dinner on the front lawn and watched it. It was cool, the other Elders where freaking out, one of them said a prayer that the clouds wouldn't cover it:)

I love you Mom and Dad, tell the family I love them.

Transfers and Glasses


If all I could say
was three words for this day
If thats all I could share
To let you know that I care
It sure would be tuff
But it's still just enough
To say
I love you

Happy birthday Mom, I think your birthday's this week right? I'm a terrible son ;)
but I really want you to know how amazing you've been in my life Mom. You've raised me up right and taught me so much, not to mention being my best friend, and all the love you show me.
I love you mom.

Interviews with President Brown were awesome, 5 min. in I started crying and didn't stop till after I'd finished the closing prayer, he cried a lot too. At first, I didn't feel like he understood me but by the end I knew he could really understand me. That guy is amazing. He went teaching with us after the interviews and he made me and Elder Gordan and the investigator cry, it was so spiritual.

Transfers came and I'm leaving Linstead and moving to Old Harbor, and I will be with Elder Simpson. He's 5 foot nothing and Scottish,  he's got a serious accent-- so, pretty stoked for that. Today we went to the caves again. I'll send the pics next week it was way fun.

I bore my testimony so hard to an investigator-- she just looked at me and said, "I hate to admit it... but I just know everything you're saying is true!" What!!!!! It was sick! The spirit was so strong and I felt so much love for her that at the end of the lesson I gave her my glasses. Let me rewind, at the beginning of the lesson she asked if she could try them on and she said they worked really well and she could see great. She had such a bright smile on her face the second she slipped them on I almost gave them to her right there. Then she told me she was trying to take classes to get a job. But she couldn't see the board, so by the end, I just gave them to her and told her if they don't work you can give them back, but if they work, they're a gift. Luckily, the next day she said they worked great, I was so happy.

Which brings me to the other thing-- I probably only have three months worth of contacts, so if you could send me some that would be great. Thanks guys.
