Emergency Exchange

This has been a crazy week! So on Thursday I recieved a call from my Zone Leaders that I was leaving Roundup to be with Elder Aldous, who is the Zone Leader, in Shephard and Hawthorne. Something happened with the other set of missionaries, I don't know what but they did something they weren't supposed to be doing, so Elder Walch, the other Zone Leader went to their area, and the other missionary left to take my place in Roundup. They told Elder Orr to straighten up the other missionary and Elder Walch is doing the same with the other missionary. Elder Aldous and Elder Walch are still the Zone Leaders even though they aren't together anymore.  So I've been in Shephard and Hawthorne since Friday night. So I'll be here for another week till transfer, which is next week, so I'm either going somewhere or going back to Roundup after this. The only bad thing is I didn't get to say goodbye to anyone in Roundup, oh well. Anyway, Shephard and Hawthorne are just right outside of Billings. Yesterday I was in Church for 7 hours! I went to both of the wards, so I was there from 9-4. The people here are pretty nice and I like it here.

The one thing I like about Montana is that you can see more stars. The only downside is that the sun beigins to set before 5. Anyway, I just love staring out at the stars at night. So the last few days here it actually warmed up. It actually went up in the high 40's.

Along with the emergency exchange I have been sick since Friday night, I have had a real stuffy and runny nose. It has not been fun and hasn't really been a great week. I'm getting along with Elder Aldous. He is from Hunington Beach, CA and he goes home in February. So, I'm still eating a lot of junk food from the holidays. Unforunately I haven't gained any weight yet. "Try to keep trying and that which becomes difficult become possible."  -President Utchdorf   I'm still trying haha.

I finally found a scripture for prayer. In 3 Nephi 18:18-20. Anyway, hope your week goes well.


  1. Here's a good missionary scripture on prayer as well, Alma 8:9-11

    1. I am glad to hear that you are doing well as well.
