Elder Stanford's story of the Scary Spider...

April 11, 2016

Hello sister NeVille!  How are you doing? I am companions with your son and just wanted to shoot you a quick email to say how much I enjoy it. He is a great guy, we do lots of work and have lots of fun together.

One funny moment came just a couple days ago when we were on our way to dinner. So I am sure you know this about him but a more recent discovery of mine was just how scared he is of spiders. Well what happened was there was a little tiny thing that I saw crawling up onto the shoulder of his seat and so I pointed it out I said "hey bro there is a spider on your seat," thinking he would flick it off and we would go on our merry way. NOPE! That is not what happened, instead he screamed, threw off his seat belt and backed himself up against the windshield to look and see if I was telling the truth or just messing with him. Well when he saw there really was a spider he dove out of the car! It was pretty intense I'm not going to lie. I was laughing the whole time haha but it gets better! After that he didn't want to get back in the car so he ran the rest of the way to our dinner
appointment while I drove along side him. Haha Face with tears of joy I thought it was hilarious and that I should share...

Hope you have a good day!

-Elder Stanford

My week was alright we did a lot of service on Friday and Saturday! We asked this lady to get baptized on May 14th and she said she will think about it and she will pray! We are going to Estes Park today and not quite sure what's going on for the rest of the week.

We find out about transfers Saturday night!

Billie, the girl I baptized, I'm not sure as far as I know she is still active. I haven't had contact with them!

Well hope you all have a good week!


Angels round about you...

Sorry this email is a little short but we just got back from Hiking Horsetooth mountain!  It was a 10 mile hike!

My week was pretty good conference was really good all the talks were great!

We have a couple of appointments this week and exchanging with elders in my district!

The weather today was in the low 70s so really nice!

Whenever I'm struggling or going through a hard time I like reading this scripture - (D&C 88:84) And whoso receiveth you, there I will be also, for I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up.


Happy Easter...

Just got done playing basketball!  It's been a pretty fast transfer normally there are 6 weeks in a transfer but this transfer is 7 weeks and we are on week 5!

It's crazy I can't believe it is almost April in about a month I will get to be on Skype again with you guys and then after that the next time I will see you will be when I get home that's crazy!

It's crazy as my shoulder feels good no pain for now!

Easter was good as we ate with our bishop and his family! Hope you all had a happy Easter!

I hope grandpa feels better I will keep him in my prayers!

My week was alright yesterday was my 19th month mark!  We have some appointments lined up for tomorrow, Wednesday, and Thursday after that not much.  This transfer has been going by pretty quick! We might go paint balling on Friday and we are helping out a member on Friday with some service and he said he will get out his paint ball guns so that sounds like it will be fun! My ward is alright, and yes the ward is pretty good at making sure we are getting fed!

So I've been doing my shoulder exercises since you sent me the rubber bands and my shoulder feels worse I didn't feel my shoulder pop out or anything but it feels like the same exact pain that I had when I tore my shoulder the first time i don't really have any range of motion! I hope I didn't tear anything but if I did I either did it in my sleep or during my exercises do you think I should go to the
doctor? I mean I think I can handle this for another 5 months I was just wondering on what you think I should do?

---------We (mom and dad) did a fast and several prayers-------------

Hey sorry I didn't respond yesterday we were in a blizzard and it knocked out the power it just got turned on and it was off the whole day! I didn't make an appointment to see the doctor as I think I am alright for now as my shoulder doesn't hurt at all!
