Goodbye Buhl, Hello Gooding!!

Hey Fam! I had a solid week.

Monday was way cool!! We went to a Bishop's house in Filer and his house was way sweet. Underground, full-size basketball court and above it off to the side was a game room that had like a press-box viewing window of the court. Had ping pong and pool too. We played a lot of basketball and ping pong!! Had a blast. Also went to the Hutchinson's for FHE and my going away dinner.

Tuesday we spent the whole day visiting people and saying goodbye. We were so busy from 12 to 9. Went and saw Wanda Fraser (Recent convert from December) and said goodbye, she said that I will always be special to her since I was there for her baptism. Made me feel really good about the service I am doing. Saw a lot of other families that I will miss a lot!

Wednesday was transfer meeting. Almost the whole mission was there due to all the changes that are happening in the mission. First day in Gooding was cool! Strange going to a new area and having to adjust and meet people. Haven't had to do that in almost 8 months haha. Elder Manygoats is pretty cool!! He is full Navajo Indian and from Arizona. 

Taught some sweet lessons and the work is good here in Gooding! Have 2-3 investigators close to baptism. We set a baptism date with one for July 25th! Her name is Tara Blunt, she is married to a member and they are a sweet family! haha their daughter, Deva, has the same birthday as me! June 9th lol. She also has red hair haha. Crazy! 

Went to Fairfield on Saturday and Sunday! The Ward Mission Leader up there is a cool guy. In his 20's and served a mission so he knows what’s up! The Ward mission Leader in Gooding is super good too. Does a solid job and makes ours a lot easier.  Fairfield is way cool though! Go look it up on a map and pictures!! It is so pretty and SO close to the mountains. It is in this sweet valley. Small town of like 500 but summers and weekends have a lot more vacationers up there. Actually there is really good potential up there, just have to work out logistics of going up there (takes a lot of time and miles so we get rides).

Sunday Elder Manygoats and I spoke in the Fairfield Branch on 'Spiritual Preparedness'. 25 people were there! hah it was tiny. But the people are humble and very nice.

Much Love!!

At a firefighter BBQ for the community in Gooding,
the kids would catch the fish with their hands.
