This is a picture of my zone, the Mission President and his wife, and Elder Baxter from the Quorum of the Seventy and his wife! They are from Scotland!
Tuesday the 25th is transfer day and one of us is probably leaving! So I'm not sure on what we are doing for Thanksgiving. It's possible we will stay but I'm not sure but we should find out on Saturday if I'm leaving or staying and will find out who my companion is on next Monday!
The highlight of my week was on Thursday night. This guy who is in his early 40s has diabetes and had a blood clot in his eyes and has to get dialysis! We went over to visit him with the bishop and gave him a blessing as he is temporary blind for right now. He said that he will get his vision back! The bishop did the blessing and I did the anointing but it was nice visiting with him! His dad was there as well and he takes care of him. His dad is not a member but he is and hasn't been at Church for a while.
And thank you for all the emails!
I hope you guys are doing well! Stay safe Love you!

This is a pic of a member’s car in our ward. They have a Jeep and an Audi. It’s a nice car but my companion and I are still on bikes.
This week went good. We visited Jack (Vietnam Vet) again and it went better. We were at his house for 3 hours! We were able to share a quick message with him but not a whole lesson as we are suppose to. My companion read out of the book, Preach My Gospel, to him and just read a little section about how the gospel blesses families. I was upset because after my companion finished reading it and told him what it was talking about Jack somehow went onto another topic talking about how we all sin. I thought now I can talk about the atonement with him but I didn't because he talks so much he doesn’t give you a break to let you cut in, it’s a talent and I left mad because I didn't get to share anything with him so we are not sure what we are going to do its really frustrating! Jacks a nice guy but just doesn't let you talk! Other than that though my week was great! Apparently this is my last week of being trained and that since it’s my last week I become the senior companion so basically we get to do what I want to do like basically I'm training him so that should be neat! I also heard that we might be getting our iPads this week!
Here's a pic of the Church program from a couple of weeks ago when I had to talk. :)
It’s snowing right now in Loveland. It’s 28 degrees and it doesn’t feel that cold outside and I guess on Wednesday the high is suppose to be 16 degrees and the low is suppose to be 3 so that day will be freezing! So it looks like I'm getting my beanie at the right time! lol
My companion and I have been arguing because I keep telling him the Eagles are better than the Panthers! He is a Panthers fan so we’re looking forward to hearing who wins! Lol Well I hope you guys are staying safe I keep you guys in my prayers! Happy anniversary Mom and Dad I hope you guys have a fun trip! Love you!

My Halloween was not fun at all as we had to be home at 6pm and my companion and I had a trainers meeting the same day from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm so it was a very boring day!
There are three wards here in Loveland. They are Mariana Butte, Lakeside, and Longview, which is the ward I'm in and Mariana Butte has two sets of missionaries in that ward.
Loveland right now is beautiful! Its pouring right now and there is like a 40% chance that it will snow later today! I didn't have time to shop last week so I don't have pictures yet but I will try today to get batteries for my camera!
Thursday was probably the highlight of my week, we had a district meeting and after that my district and I rented a limo. We all paid $10 each and it was so fun as we rode in it for two hours! For my companions birthday we went over to our favorite ward family's house and they made him a cake and gave him presents so we celebrated it their which was real nice. Then we went to Wendy's with other missionaries and I didn't get my companion anything so I just bought him lunch! My Vitamins are good I have been taking them everyday! :) Would it be OK if you could order me a Eagles Beanie and gloves its starting to get chilly and I checked with my companion and he said Beanies are OK for us to wear so will that be OK? (Amazon it is!)
Thank you! I pray for you guys every day love you!
