Week 77-81 woops!


Well I guess I have been so busy in the missionary life that I feel like I just neglect everything on my blog haha So I will give a brief update on what has happen so far. This some of the things I sent to my mom and other people.
March 3, 2014
So we found out something the other day. So we knew that in a couple weeks we are going to have a stake conference. And That there is going to have a reorganization of the stake presidency. But then we find out a couple days ago thats not only that but they are splitting and reorganizing the stake into a new stake! So thats very unexpected... So the area will be changing! Its crazy!!! And I guess the stake just founbd out like a week or 2 ago! So this is all new!
SO I have some exciting news! I just got my transfer call! And guess what?!'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
I am Leaving! And not only that! I am now becoming a Zone Leader In the Orem windsor area! And I am a zone leader over my first area Lindon!!!!!! I am so excited! Its going to be awesome!!! This will be a great few transfers! :) This will be fun! :D
We have had a good week! Its been a great week where people are coming unto Christ and things are falling into place. The area is getting there and is getting allot better. We are seeing allot of miracles here its awesome!
I really don't have much to report Mom. O and Elder Lewandowski is now a district leader in my place. Its awesome!
We had a baptism for an 8 year old kid that we taught cause the young kid didn't know anything about God or Jesus Christ. But we taught him and he understands everything it was awesome! I got to confirm him at the baptism it was a great sight to see :) I love that kid!
March 10-17
So I am now in Orem Windsor area at this time
So the Zl life is good. I am liking it. But the thing is there is more responsibility now than before. So it can cause some stress but its good.
My Comp is cool too. His name is Elder Reher (Sounds like Rare). Hes from California Fresno area. He has been out for 21 months. So for once I am not the Senior Companion haha But hes cool!
The area I am in is the Orem Windsor area. It covers 3 stakes and its basically the north Eastern part of orem. The funny thing was that I actually served in this area when I was with the Zone Leaders when Elder Jarman left me. So I have an understanding of the area already. infact I have some investigators and LARCs that I remember teaching when I was in that area for 4 weeks. So this is pretty awesome. And my zone basically covers my 1st area lindon! so I get to see people who I have been around before so this is going to be awesome!
I had the opportunity to go back to a baptism for Kutler Frampton! Funny thing was I met this guy like back in November at a youth activity and back then he wasn't interested in the missionary discussions. But then a couple months later he comes up to us and says I want to be baptized! Pretty much a shocker to me! But it was awesome! He was willing to keep the commitments we left him and he really wants to come closer to Christ. He understood everything in the lessons and was baptized eventually on March 8th! It was a good baptism! 
The funny thing was the font wasn't filled up all the way so he had to really bend down and to get under the water haha it was a great and wonderful time! I enjoyed it!

Orem has been nice. We haven't taught as much in this area as Eagle Mountain But we can get this area up and running! Its a great area. And being close to Lindon allows me to get in contact with all recent converts and people there. Good things will happen soon!
We had a couple of cool experiences yesterday. First we were in church and this guy says in priesthood I have some clothing to give away. Shoes suits and pants that are brand name clothing. Well we talked to the guy and he said come over. So we did and this clothing is... legit brands! I got Levi skinny jeans, J. Crew ties and a really nice tan suit from J. Crew! And my comp also got a new suit as well that was from H&M. And this stuff is good quality and was well tailored. It was awesome! I don't know if I can wear the suit though on my mission. But we will see :)

This Tie looks like a quilt. #Tieuntradable

  I look like a talk show host haha
And also I actually met a family that was a really amazing family. Very smart but very open to hearing the gospel. And I don't know, I feel like I know them and I was suppose to meet them. its weird I haven't had that in a while. Its pretty cool the spirit was strong as we taught them.
Elder Reher and I are doing good! We have allot of the same goals as missionaries and desires for the area and our Zone. We have been doing random things for the missionaries in the zone and it just feels good. I love it. 
But Yeah I am still getting the hang of being a zone leader. It allot more challenging than I thought. But I am excited for it!
We are really starting to see how working with leadership and meeting with members before a lesson is amazing! It really helps gain trust in the members when you meet and discuss this plan. We had a lesson where we met with a member before a lesson. and she said some very confidential things about the investigator that was good to be aware of. And we had the lesson, but the investigator had some major problems with repentance. She said she doesn't see that if she doesn't have a desire to repent of her mistakes she should have to repent especially if she is going to do them over and over again. 
The crazy thing is that because we met with the member before hand we probably wouldn't have had her trust. But she went along with the things we had for her. And the things we were saying  really made the investigator think and we told her to call us when she decided if she wants to continue to meet with us or not. So we are taking a break from her. But We will stop by this week and see how she is doing. but it was a very intense lesson.
