Happy Reunion! :)

Surprise, Surprise! I'm not in Corvallis anymore! So Wednesday, when I just came back to Corvallis and just barely finished unpacking I get a call saying that I'm leaving to Kalispell to be with the Zone Leaders, back in a Trio! I was bummed about leaving Corvallis because we had an investigator, Gracie, and her husband Ron who is a less active, come to church last Sunday and Gracie wants to be baptized and Ron wants to get married in the Temple with her! However, the good news about being in Kalispell I'm reunited with Elder Scott and Elder Burrows! Elder Scott was my trainer and Elder Burrows was with me from the MTC. So arrived in Kalispell Thursday night and I love being with Elder Scott and Elder Burrows. So I'm the AZL(Assitant Zone Leader) again. I really love it here  and it's beautiful here. Flathead Lake looks GORGEOUS! Kalispell is North of Missoula, so I'm still in the West.

So Saturday we had a baptism for Garret, who just turned 19. Garret is a huge guy who has a beard and looks like he is 28. The baptism was great and the ward there was really supportive of him. Elder Burrows gave a great talk on Baptism and Elder Scott did a good talk on the Holy Ghost. I was the chorister and I had to lead a primary song that I never even heard of before. Scary... Haha The baptism was great, he then was confirmed yesterday at church. He is dating a member and she and her family are fellowshipping him. His grandparents were members but his parents aren't. In fact, he was saying how his dad was saying he shouldn't get baptized the night before his baptism, but he stood up and said he could make the decision for himself and that this was something he wanted to do. I'm glad he is committed. He is also planning on going to the Carson temple in 2 weeks to do baptisms for the dead. So that was the highlight of the week. Then we had dinner Sunday night with the Mowers, Garret's girlfriend family, so Garret was there too and I had a great time being with them. I really like the Ward here, I serve the Kalispell 2 Ward.

That is so crazy that Tyler is going to Montana!!!!! I can't wait for him to come in. He will love it here, he has to serve the West side though, because it is so much prettier and cooler than the East side haha. Man, I need to get in contact with him. My mind is Blown!

So, I live with members, the Kleanensmith, they have a really nice big house. It's great living there, I have a bed put right in between Elder Scott and Elder Burrows, so they pick on me alot haha. They are bullies... JK.  I love being with them and in Trios. Unfortunately, the Kleanensmith are moving to Las Vegas in 2-3 weeks, so we have to find a new place to live. I really love being with the Kleanensmith, Sister Kleanensmith makes us breakfast for most mornings which is great! She is a great cook. I'm living the dream right now being with two companions that I wanted to be with the most in the mission! I'm loving life and loving the Gospel! I just hate packing....   :/ Haha, oh well, Love ya and have a great week!
