Hey there everyone! It has been a pretty good week this week! W have
been working on contacting a lot of people which has been fun.
Basically same thing we usually do.

We had specialized training this week. It was pretty dang good.
President Russell shared a lot of really good stuff. After that
meeting Elder Lance and I were inspired so we went hard finding folks.
We found a super dope Black dude named Donte. That was pretty fun.
Manuel and Lydia dropped us this week. Well not really they just said
they needed some time. Luckily they have great fellowshippers who are
going to invite them to the Ward Christmas Party.

Besides all this not much exciting happened. Elder Lance had an
interview with President in the Mission Home last night so I just kind
of got to chill in the mission home. Anyway great week! Things are
good. Excited for the holidays! Have a great week!

This week was pretty awesome we got a lot done this week! We started
teaching a couple with two young kids ages 5 and 3. It has been pretty
awesome. His name is Manuel and his wife is Lydia. They want to raise
their kids with religion and but he is a really heavy thinker and
doesn't understand spiritual things as much so it's been a little
tough. But it's a great opportunity to teach a family.

We were walking down the street another day and I randomly saw one of
my neighbors from back home! It was nuts to see someone from home! She
graduated then came out to live in Eugene with some friends but that
was her last day in Eugene if I hadn't bumped into her that day I
probably wouldn't have ever seen her. That was pretty cool.

Anyway besides all that not a ton is going down. We are working hard
and kicking butt. Transfers next week and it sounds like Elder Wheldon
might be leaving me. He's been a great companion and I hope he gets to

Thanks for all your prayers! Love you all!
