Socorro New Mexico:)

Hey Friends and Family! 
Socorro New Mexico is awesome! Its a little town of around 10 thousand people (more or less, depends on the time of year) and it is a couple hours south of Albuquerque. In Socorro there is a Tech College that we will be working with/on. Its called New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. We have currently been doing our studies on it and have plans to open a booth when school starts back up. If you have any ideas about how we can take advantage of it please let us know! 
My New companion is Elder Taylor! He grew up in Arizona, moved to Utah for a couple years and did a semester at BYU Idaho before coming out. Hes awesome! We both have the desire to work hard, be obedient and turn out and help others! 
We are super blessed to be driving a 2017 Toyota Tacoma and we need it! There are a lot of dirt roads we take to get to trailers, farms, and such. Socorro is the second largest area in the Albuquerque New Mexico Mission. Its pretty close to some of the reservations, we will be working with a lot of Navajo's.  We see wild animals all of the time! 
The Socorro ward is awesome and kinda small. A lot of the ward consists of the college and with it currently being summer there is a lot of people gone! I have loved the short amount of time I have been in Socorro. The people are awesome, the area is somewhat green and every once and a while we hear bombs go off. What else could you ask for? Hurrah! 
We had the opportunity to do service at the Albuquerque temple! It was a blast! One of our jobs was to trim the bushes and make them into a circle, mine may have turned into a triangle. They said it was alright and they were going get rid of them soon anyway haha. 
Tomorrow is Zone Conference! We will finally be getting technology! 
There are some potential investigators, part member family's, and less actives that we are going to start working with pretty soon. Will keep you updated on them when there is more information! There is an insane amount of work to be done! We are excited!
