Alright so this week was pretty exciting. On Monday we went and met with a member named Gary and his roommate, Richard. Richard was interested in the church and wanted to learn more. So we went and taught the first lesson. The Spirit filled the room as we testified of the Savior, Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon. Richard accepted a baptismal date for July 15th.

On Tuesday we found out that Elder Fowlks was going to be transferred so we spent a good amount of Wednesday packing and saying goodbye to people. He was here for 6 months so we had a lot of people to see. 

Thursday we had breakfast at the ward mission leader's house and then left for transfers. Elder Fowlks was transferred to the Cedar Creek Ward in Lenexa. My new companion is Elder Nielsen. He is from Tucson, Arizona and has been out for 20 months. He has served in Leavenworth and Chanute, two of my past areas! So we have had a good amount to talk about. It has been pretty fun the past couple of days. 

We have a spicy BBQ sauce in our fridge called Devil's Butt and Elder Nielsen wanted to try it. So we sat down to have lunch and we said a prayer and as soon as we closed the prayer. He popped up and said "I have to grab the Devil's Butt!" without realizing what he had said.

A member here works for Chrysler and they provide him a car so he has a really nice 2017 Dodge Challenger that he took us out in and drove us around a little. It was sweet. 

The past couple of days we have had some pretty crazy storms. There were a few tornados about 20 minutes north of us, but not too much damage was done. And we are safe Mom. It was kinda funny though we called one of our investigators Saturday night to make sure he was coming to church and he said he was driving home and his phone said there was a tornado that was within 5 miles of him, but he said that he would make it to church. I made a joke and told him that if he didn't make it to church it had better be because he got caught in a tornado... He didn't come, so we will make sure that he is alright.

But overall it was a really good week, I am grateful for my family and especially for my Father. He has been an amazing example for me and others to look towards. I hope to grow into the man that he expects me to be. Thank you Dad, I love you.
