Hello everyone! Please join me as I tell you of my travels to a far and foreign land. As I had informed you last week, I was called to serve in Window Rock, AZ. So I packed my bags, said my goodbyes and headed east. First stop was Farmington, the mission capitol. I stayed the night there and then headed onto the transfer van on Tuesday morning, with a bunch of other elders that were headed south as well. After about a 3 hour drive to Gallup, and a short-lived time of service in Gallup, my new companion picked me up to take me to the Navajo Nation Capitol, and our new area. Little bit about WR; it reminds me of Washington DC! Nah I'm just kidding Haha it's not impressive at all. All of the nations' government buildings are basically trailers or very old and run down buildings, with the exception of one building, the new NTUA building they are almost finished with in Fort Defiance, that Elder Curtis and I accidentally wandered into in search of a treasure. Aside from that, I'm in the big city! I would compare the change like going from Logan to LA. There are a LOT more people here, and a LOT more established businesses. Some more perks about my new area; there is a gym with real equipment and machines and things for free that will be taken advantage of very much, and there is a basketball hoop in our church. I feel exponentially blessed wow this is amazing. Elder Curtis is a great guy, we are still getting to know each other, but we are working together well. He too is from the promised land of Utah, specifically South Weber. I have some fantastic new zone leaders that live right next door to us and are serving in Window Rock 2nd ward. Brand new district leader who is fantastic. And we have a senior couple here! They are so amazing and such a blessing to us and such a great resource. Senior couples are just the best, and especially ours, the Brems, who are from Portland. They feed us so much and give us tons of support and help when we need them. Elder Curtis took me around to meet some of the members and people we are teaching and we have had a few lessons, and things are going great. We were able to get 5 people being taught into sacrament meeting yesterday! It is such a fantastic ward to be in I already love all of the members and I hope to stay here for a long time. Things are going fantastic, I continue to learn and grow so much and I am loving being a missionary and being an example to everyone I come in contact with. This new area and challenge I feel will be a lot of fun and I am very excited for things to come. The Lord really is looking out for each and every one of us, it just may be harder at times to see that. But look for it! There is a reason for every situation that we are put in, and a reason for every person that enters into our lives. God has a great and intricuit plan for each of us. Let's put the cherry on top. Why didn't the skeleton go to the dance? It had no body to go with!
