Hey everyone,

We got our transfer calls earlier today! Normally I would like to build up some anticipation for it and share what's going on at the end of the email, and that's exactly what I'm going to do now haha.

This week went pretty well for us. We had a pretty crazy Monday with the apps being gone and the smoke hitting us pretty hard but everything chilled out the next morning when the apps came back and the smoke was way better. So that was a blessing for sure! It was pretty normal for the rest of the day on Tuesday, we just tried to do some finding for sixth ward since they haven't had as many investigators recently. We actually did have a lesson with our investigator Sienna and we were talking about Adam and Eve but she didn't know who they were so we asked her who she thought were the first people on Earth. She then said that she thought it was Jesus haha so we had to explain to her the story of Adam and Eve and she was pretty blown away by that so it was pretty funny!

Wednesday we had an awesome lesson with Tammy and Henry! Tammy is so cool, she's just super friendly and already loves the gospel! We taught her the Plan of Salvation for the first time and taught it to Henry for his new member lessons. It works out super well we can get both lessons done in one. Henry started asking a few deeper questions about the Plan of Salvation so we tried to answer them as simply as possible haha so that was fun! We did end up moving Tammy's baptismal date back a week just because she is going to be busy and we wouldn't be able to fit all of the lessons in before the 8th so it's now set for the 15th.

Thursday we went on exchanges and I went with Elder Autry to the Spokane 2nd area. It's a fun area to be in, it's one of those mission legends that everyone talks about. There's some crazy things happening in that area sometimes but anyway we just had a lesson with an awesome lady named Donna. She's a really cool investigator of theirs and we taught her the 10 commandments. She already knew them but we showed her how she can remember all of them and in order. By the time we left she got it all down! Elder Autry is a fun guy and it was a good exchange, he's super into military stuff and their apartment is pretty close to the air force base so anytime a plane would fly by he would know what it was! It was fun to learn a bit more about the military from him!

We were finally able to meet with Rana again on Friday night! We just showed up and she answered the door and invited us in again so that was a big miracle! We went over some of the same concerns that she has had for a while now and tried to address them. She said that she thinks it'd be best to start from square one again so hopefully that will help her out!

Henry and Haley were both able to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost on Sunday! They were both really happy and it was a great experience for them. They are both great and im glad that we have been able to guide them on this journey and help them to get to where they are now! We went to dinner last night at a member in the Glenrose wards home and they were awesome! It was the Elmers family and Brother Elmers was actually a mission President in a mission in Peru, it kind of felt like we were having dinner with the Dymocks honestly but it was fun! Sister Elmer was putting together a video to show to the high council on ministering and so she asked us if we knew how to edit a video. So I was happy to be able to help her out! She wanted me to show her step by step how to do it so it took a little while but we got it all done and she was so happy about it! She kept thanking me for helping her and I was like no thank you, I haven't been able to do that in a while and it was fun! So that was a great experience!

For this coming transfer Elder Sautter and I will be staying in the same three wards! Haha got ya jk but we are excited to be staying and continuing the work in this area! Not sure if we will still have this awesome crib to ourselves or not but we will find out soon.

Well I hope you all have a good week!

Your friendly neighborhood

Elder Webb
