This week has been fun. Now I have two companions here in Colorado. We are serving out in Lamar, Colorado.
Monday it was my birthday. Spent time with elders in Wichita. Spent time with Elder Hunsman, Elder Jones, Elder Clarkson and Elder MacArthur. Then we went to the Stake Center with the other missionaries. Then we had dinner with the Cardon Family. Their little daughter had a birthday also so we celebrated it together Sister Cardon made a cake and we had Ice Cream with it.
Tuesday spent most of the day packing. Went out to eat with the district for lunch. We were able to visit with Sister Berreth. We then had dinner with the Clarks. They live up the floor from us. This was lots of fun learning about medical and dental school and playing with Lego’s with their son. Then we were able to see the Simons family and then the Marshall family and the Grantham Family.
Wednesday was transfer day. About 3/4 of the mission came to the Mission Office. We all had lunch and then had a music show and transfer devotional. We had 6 missionaries come out and about 25 go home so it was a long meeting. Then we left for Dodge City in the Mission Van. The Kitchens from the mission office drove the van. We got to Dodge around 6pm. Then we waited for Elder Blaylock and Elder Lott to get here from Colorado. We then had to drive to Lamar through Garden City. We ate dinner with the Lamar sisters in Dodge City because we were all traveling home. We ended up getting to the sister’s house after 10pm. We didn't get home till 10:30. It was a very late drive.

Thursday we had time to unpack and shop and then we went over and visited Brother Kisamore. We ended up leaving Elder Lott there when Elder Blaylock and I went to visit Ben and Victoria. Then we had dinner with the Maestas Family. Then Elder Lott and I went out to work when Elder Blaylock went to teach Marchus with Brother Maestas.
Friday we had time to weekly plan then we were able to clean the apartment then go out and work. Elder Lott went out with Tyler, a return missionary. Elder Blaylock and I bought food for the sisters because of the big storm on Saturday. We then had dinner with Sister Hunt. Then we had time to visit a few potentials and less actives.
Saturday we had a service project at Ben and Victoria’s. We hung drywall in the house. Elder Blaylock and I and the sisters hung 6 sheets. This was lots of fun. Even Victoria, the mom came and helped us screw up the sheets on the ceiling. Then we meet Tyler and a few others in town. We then had dinner with the sisters at the church building. Then we saw Tyler our neighbor. The Millers came out with us. Brother Miller with Elder Lot and I with their son and Elder Blaylock with their other son.
Sunday we got lots of snow. Church was small because people were not able to make it. It was a great day. Then we had lunch with Zariiah. Then we went out again with the Millers. Elder Lott and I visited Marchus and The Ortiz family and Elder Blaylock visited Brother Kisamore. Then we had dinner with the Millers. On our way home we got stuck in a ditch for a little bit. We made it home safe. Lots of fun out in Colorado.
Thanks for all the letters and mail. I am having lots of fun out here and seeing lots of people. Thanks for every thing. It is fun having two companions, have a safe week.
