|Here is the cabin we stay in.|
These are pictures of my area. I see a lot of deer here, which is what these are.
They are everywhere. Also I saw some peacocks. That was weird.
| On Saturday our investigator Aaron got baptized. It was really interesting planning|
for that because the day before we had to change the location of the baptism. But it all worked out fine.
|For p-day our district hiked up to a huge cross that is on a hill in Colville|
| I like all of the sticky notes that were in the box, I put them in the front|
of my journal with the rest of the notes I have been collecting.
Back from carving pumpkins! This is the whole districts'. We carved our pumpkins and then Elder Johnson said, "You ain't down to wear your pumpkin on your head. I'll do it if you do." So we did.
|As a district we went to the Spokane Temple. It was a 7:30 session so we had to wake up at 5 in order to get there on time. On the way back we had lunch with, Bro. Loutzenhizer, the member who drove us. I'm really tired right now but it was definitely worth it.|
|I think I might have written about the scary gnome thing that lives in our apartment but it has moved locations. |
It used to stare at me while I slept so I moved it. It now lives in the closet.
|I took a picture of me and E. Shirk together but then E. Johnson felt left out so I had to take a couple with him too.|
So here these are. E. Van Ry is also in the background of one of them I think.
Okay so the little army men is something I don't think I've told you about yet. Before I came out into the field Elder Baczuk went on exchanges with Elder Johnson (not the zone leader though a different Elder Johnson) and while they were on exchanges E. Johnson hid a whole bags worth of army men around the apartment. The whole time I was with E. Baczuk he was finding them everywhere - like in the shower, in his bag, and he even found one in his suit pocket. After a while I forgot about them but a couple nights ago I walked in on Elder Shirk recording his thoughts and he was looking at one of them and talking about how he kept finding them throughout the apartment. I started laughing really hard.
It has been a pretty good week. We have transfers coming up this week and I am going
to get a new trainer. I'm kinda nervous but I think it will turn out okay. I am still going to
be in the same area so at least some things are going to stay the same.
We spent a lot of time driving because we had to go see the Clark Fork area and then
drive to our area in Montana. We got to visit with Chris who was baptized last week and
he is still doing well. We taught him the restoration again.
I was on exchanges with Elder Van Ry again. We tracted a lot on dirt roads. Accidentally
tracted into a couple of members, which was fun. We also went and visited a less-active
member who has 3 dogs that are all blind. They would shuffle along and bump into the
furniture and each other. It was pretty funny.

|Elder Baczuk says that I'm starting to get bags under my eyes just like his! Means I'm really starting to become a missionary!|
|Elder Baczuk's new t-shirt, he looks pretty pumped about it!|
|A lookout at a member's house.|
|My haircut (Elder Baczuk did it), it's very short!!|
|This was my outfit last p-day. We've been wearing sweaters a lot and I always sing "the best time to wear a striped sweater"|
|I took this picture while driving|
|A cool rooster we saw while doing service|
|Good catch Elder Baczuk|
