Doing Work!

So, this week went well. I had my first District meeting on Wednesday and it went well. I'm glad to say I manged to make the meeting 3 hours long when there is just the six of us. It is very interesting to just have Sisters in my district. It is amazing how young my district is as well, all of them have been out less than 3-4 months. It is also crazy to think I have been out longer than my whole district combined as well. I'm getting used to my responsibility.

So I wasn't able to email yesterday due to the library not being open for Veteran's Day. So Elder Linton and I met up with 6 other Elders in Lander and went to Sinks Canyon. So about a 30-40 minute drive south of Riverton. We went spelunking, which was super fun. It was a one man tunnel and had to climb up and down the cave which was super fun. I unfortunately forgot to bring my camera so I have no pictures. Then after that we went hiking up to some water falls that were frozen. The water was frozen as well so we had fun walking on the ice and seeing the frozen falls. That was super fun, I hope to go back again. It was also a very beautiful hike.

So we have two baptisms for this Saturday. One for Russ who Elder Linton has been teaching for 4 months now and he is finally ready to be baptized. We also have Mitchell, a 9 year old who is getting baptized as well. Then there is going to be a member baptism for an 8 year old, so we will be at the church all Saturday with the baptisms. Super exciting.

So I went to church in Shoshoni this Sunday which is a small branch. They had 53 people at church Sunday. We were able to set a baptism date for December 14 with a 9 year old girl in Shoshoni on Sunday as well. We will be teaching her. I don't think Shoshoni had a convert baptism all year so this should be exciting.

Well, I believe that is all that happened. Tomorrow Elder Linton and I are doing a discussion at Zone Training tomorrow. I'm also excited for tonight as Elder Thawley (From my MTC Distirct) is spending the night at our place tonight. He is the Zone leader in the Wyoming North Zone and he is going around in our Wyoming South Zone to all the companionships to see how they teach with the ipad. So it should be nice to have him this evening. Well, hope you have a great week!

  1. The thought came to me that the little girl can set in motion, generations of activity in the Church. How neat it is that Devin is having so many sweet conversion experiences on his mission! Isn't that what the Lord's work is all about? One by one....
