February 22, 2016

Dear family and friends,

Another week here in Hillsville! It has been a pretty busy week, but that has been great!

Friday was the biggest anticipation for me because of district meeting, I was pretty nervous for it but I think it turned out pretty well! Following district meeting, we went on exchanges! Elder Boyd and I worked in Wytheville and we had a great time! We spent most of the day seeing former investigators and we did a lot of driving! I was pretty interesting to see all the beautiful scenery out there! I have been serving in Hillsville for a while now so serving in Wytheville for a bit was a pretty awesome experience! Elder Boyd is a really awesome missionary, he goes home in a few weeks, but plans to come right back and live in Wytheville! Pretty cool!

Saturday we exchanged back and later that night had a great lesson with one of our investigators! His name is Lenny and he is really good friends with some members in our ward! After our lesson the members took us out to dinner to a Mexican restaurant called Rio Grande! I was surprised at how good it was too! This family is actually from Puerto Rico so they basically knew everyone that worked there! Ha! I love that family so much!

Another pretty cool thing that has been going on over the past week or two is our living situation. We cover a pretty large area in the mission and Hillsville's population compared to Galax, a city in our area, is about 6 or 7 times less so we decided that we should move and live in Galax rather than Hillsville! Plus there are way more members of the ward in Galax! A bunch of other reasons went into our decision to move but that would take a while to explain haha. So we talked to the mission office and they told us to go find an apartment! On Thursday we spent a good while apartment hunting! It was pretty fun actually and near the end of the night, we met up with a realtor to look at an apartment in a perfect location! That apartment that we found is pretty nice and we took pictures and sent them to President Salisbury and he approved it this morning actually! The mission and realty company worked out a contact and everything and we should be moved in there in a few days! Its pretty short notice so we have to get our current apartment all packed up pretty quick! Ha! It should be a lot of fun and definitely a learning experience! I do know that moving to Galax is that right thing to do and that the work will be accelerated because of it! It is pretty exciting!

Well that is all for this week, I love you all very much and am so grateful for the support that I have! Have a great week! :)
