August 18th, 2014

Weekly email
Hello family and friends! It's another crazy week on the mission, and I mean crazy. I don't think I did very much of anything in my area this last week. But we have been super busy haha.

We actually had some cool experiences. On Wednesday attended a big YSA dinner hosted by one of the members of the YSA ward bishopric. It was kind of a good way to get less active and nonmember single adults to come and listen to a message and talk to some missionaries. Each companionship needed someone to bring with them that was either nonmember or less active to get into the dinner. The big hook for everyone was the steak. It was some really good steak for being made for a lot of people. They talked about life choices. The big theme of the dinner was "choose the right".

After that, on Thursday I got to go to Helena with Elder Payne to pick up all of the missionaries over there who went home at the end of this transfer. At the end of the trip they dropped me off in Harlowton which is just a little ways out of Billings. I'm here with Elder Kilmon until the end of the transfer because his companion finished his mission. I packed all of my things on Wednesday and it's ready for me to be transferred.

On Tuesday I was interviewed by President Mecham. I asked him if I needed to pack since it's the end of the transfer and I wasn't going to have time when I had to go to Harlowton. He told me to go ahead and pack, which meant I wasn't staying in Harlowton or Billings. So I knew I was going to get transferred. I didn't know where, but I knew he would transfer me. I found out Sunday when they called me that I am getting transferred back to the reservation! This time I will not be in WolfPoint, sadly. I am going to Poppler. And if anyone cares to look up the statistic, it has the highest stabbings per capita than any other city in the United States of America. But that's okay, they won't mess with me. I will be perfectly fine.

This also means, don't send me any mail until I can give you the Poppler address or you can just send it to the mission home address.
Big news though, I'm finally moving up in the world! They are making me senior companion this transfer and my new companion is Elder Archie. I don't know too much about him, but I know that he's a nice guy and he was in my zone when I was in Wyoming. I wasn't made senior companion because pretty much all of my companions have been out longer than I have. That's fine with me because I am okay with not having to worry about anything but the work I do. Darn that responsibility stuff. Oh well, it will be a growing experience and I am sure I will learn a lot!

Hope everyone is having a good day! and remember, I'm pullin for ya, we're all in this together.

Elder Kilmon and I are having way too much fun. We have a whole house to ourselves in Harlowton and I just found a bunch of candles in the basement.
"today you join our brotherhood." name that movie...
