This week seems to have gone by so fast. It has been so awesome to read your emails this morning. I still can't believe that President Nelson came to Minnesota. I had no idea that he went there for medical school either. Wow that certainly sounds like it was amazing! I remember when Elder Cook came to Stake Conference a while ago. It was really great to be able to shake his hand and meet and listen to an Apostle in person.
This week is week 5 of the transfer. So this Saturday we will find out who goes where. There is a decent chance that I stay another transfer here in Waterford. It also means that I will be getting a new companion next week no matter what happens since Elder Watson leaves for the Mission home this Friday. So that means that I will be in a tres companionship for a few days.
This week we were able to meet with Claire as well as Arnas. We met Claire at the beginning of May and she finally was able to meet with us this week. She has met with the Sister missionaries before and came with us to church this week. She is really interested in learning and wants to get baptized. We are looking forward to teaching her again this week. Church was really good this week. The topic of Elders quorum was eternal marriage. I told Elder Watson that he probably couldn't have had a better topic for his last Sunday in Waterford. Haha.
We also met Arnas last week, he works at one of the shops called Gadgetman here in Waterford. He had never heard of missionaries before but was interested enough to meet with us. He seems to always be working though to save up for college.
This week we went over to the Ackroyd's. Brother and Sister Ackroyd both moved from Arizona to Dunmore East. Dunmore East is a little coastal town about half an hour to the southeast of Waterford. It is a very pretty town. I took some pictures of the area.
It's good to hear that everything is going good back home. There are 3 weeks left of seminary I take it? I hope that you guys have a great week. Waterford is great. It's been a hit or miss for rain this week.
Talk to you guys next week,
Love, Elder Calley
