Week 7

This was a really busy day. After our studies we got to teach a lesson to a new referral and have lunch with them. We then had to drive 20 mins back to the stake center to prepare the baptismal font for Chris's baptism. During the baptism Elder Baczuk and I gave a presentation on the first vision and then I had to give a talk about the Holy Ghost. Afterwards we had to drive 50 mins to get to Priest River and attend a baptism there that Elder Baczuk was invited to. It was however a very spiritual day and I learned a lot. During the really long car rides we listened to talks and devotionals from Elder Holland. And the baptisms were incredible. Several investigators attended and got to feel the spirit there.

Week 6 - Elder Baczuk hit a bear!

A selfie I took at training meeting
We had specialized training from 10 am to 2 pm. We got to hear from President Dymock. He has a lot of knowledge about symbolism and doctrine. His lesson kinda blew my mind. We also got to hear from Sister Dymock who is just as awesome, she talked more about stress though and how we can receive help for that. Afterwards we were super tired, I don't know why but meetings really drain you of your energy!

 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! 
Went on exchanges in Elder Van Ry's area. We did service for a member, drove around a lot and went to Panhandlers with Elder Baczuk and Elder Goodwin. I'm so mad. the one time I wasn't in the truck with Elder Baczuk, he hit a bear in the road and sent it flying off of a cliff. The truck wasn't damaged though.

Week 5 - Ode to Spongebob

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

Good catch Elder Baczuk
