Elder Garlick

This is IT!!

Two transfers left, 11 weeks to go... Holy cow it goes by so fast! So I got the news! I'm getting transferred to Carlsbad, New Mexico! It's going to be pretty sweet! My new companion is Elder Pawlak, he's been out for 3 months and I'm stoked to be able to serve with him!

We were able to go to the temple and it was an awesome trip there! We had some members take us and then they took us to IHop and it was delicious! (We’re elders you know} Saturday we went with a couple of elders to Coldstone before transfers and there were some members there that recognized me as one of Elder Despain’s old companions and they bought us ice cream as well! It was pretty sweet! Love these people.

We also met with Rebecca, which it has been a really long time since we've seen her. Some recent sad news with her is she just lost her mom. Her mother was a holdback for her getting baptized, so I don’t know what will happen there now. We were pretty stoked to be able to talk to her and figure out what else needs to happen to get her prepared to take the next steps to her testimony and baptism. The lesson started off good, but then went downhill as we realized how many aspects of the gospel that she lacked a testimony in. So that was difficult, but they are going to keep working with her and try to help her.

Not much else happened this week! We were at the food bank a couple of times, but other than that it was a pretty mellow week! We had a pretty sweet district meeting, learned a lot about the fundamentals on how to begin teaching, which is always helpful!

Love you all and hope you have a great week! I'll be sure to have more to report on next week!

Love you all always,
Elder Bollwinkel
