Happy New Year!

Elder Griffin and Elder Holmes
Happy new years everybody!!!!

I am absolutely loving my new ward! The Rolling hills ID ward is a lot like the Washington 8th ward back home, so it's really fun to be meeting all the members and feel right at home.

My new Companion is Elder Garett Holmes (not Sherlock) and he's from Washington UT! he only lived there for about 6 months before he came on his mission but we have a lot of friends in common, so it's really cool to connect!

This week has been really busy!

Monday was p-day and we played games and had fun with the whole zone at the stake center and then finished the day with prepping the area for the new missionaries coming in after us.

Tuesday spent the whole day helping other missionaries with transfers and got settled in the apartment and then spent the whole night out teaching and meeting members of the ward.

Wednesday we went tracting and had my first ever tracting miracle and found a great service opportunity that potentially could turn into an investigator. The snow softens hearts! and Snow shovels do as well!

Thursday  we did service at the food bank and it was lots of fun, i love the little old ladies there! we had dinner with the Burglands and then spent the evening weekly planning. We weren't planning on staying up till midnight but when we went to bed we started talking about home and figured out a bunch of connections we had, it was pretty cool!

Friday we had district meeting, (my district is super fun!) and then we went and met some of the families we are working with, the deobalds are awesome! and we are working with their daughter and hoping to work with the husband.

That evening I also went and met the Zirkers and caught up with them and talked with them about mom and dad, They remembered you guys!!!

Saturday we handed out invites to an activity we do every Tuesday and met a few member families and had a really good dinner at the Hansens, it was just like home!

Sunday we had church, it was great to meet the whole ward and get to know everyone and it was just really enjoyable. After church we went and taught the Deobalds the word of wisdom and it wasn't our best lesson, but it was okay. Then we had dinner at our apartment because the family providing our dinner was not feeling well. It was really good though, SPAGETTI!!!!!!!!!!! So good!

After dinner we taught the Picarellas and it was an amazing lesson. The husband has such good questions and it was a great learning experience. We finished the night visiting a PMF and the lady talked our ear off, it was pretty funny.

Painted up their windows!
