Dear Family and Friends,
How are you guys doing? I am doing great here in Arizona - Sharing the Gospel and doing the Lord's work. Well, I got transferred to Anthem on Wednesday and my new companion is Elder Bryant from Apple Valley, California. He has been out for 3 months and is excited to be on his mission. He is 18 - so President Monson's announcement effected him. We cover the Gavilin Peak Ward - here in Anthem. I live in a nice Apartment complex right off the I-17 Highway called Bella Rosa Apartments. Anthem is a nice area that is 30 minutes - North of Phoenix that was built in 2001 so it is a pretty new community. It is a pretty big city of its own with lots of residential and commercial buildings. My area is pretty small so I am back to being on bike which I love street contacting people and getting exercise. I do miss the quickness of a car and will miss the AC in a month. The weather up here is still really nice in the 80's. I had a great week starting with transfers, seeing 20 new missionaries coming into our mission and hear their testimonies of their excitement to be on their missions. We had a wonderful Baptism on Saturday for Lynn with her strong spirit as she was baptized by her friend that introduced her to the church. Great support from the ward and a few investigators from other missionaries. I had a great Sabbath day meeting with the members and investigators. Elder Bryant got to do his 1st confirmation which was also a strong spirit to see her as she became a member of the church and receive the Holy Ghost. We had a great ward activity at a really nice park getting to know ward members and doing some fun activities such as water balloons and 3 legged race. That was my great week sharing the Gospel. I love and miss you all. You are all in my prayers. I know that this Gospel is true and it has been restored to bless our lives so we can return to live with our Heavenly Father.
