Week #84- "I promise I've been good...I just really love fire."

New companion Elder Ogden and the serious Elder Stockman. Elder Odgen is from Draper, Utah. 

Im super glad that you guys could go and meet those guys that I was with here in the mission. Its funny to remember all of those funny stories of things that happened and I didnt even remember. I promise that I have been good, i just really like fire. hahaha

So this week I have been feeling really good here in my new area with Elder Ogden. He is a great companion and we get along really great! Its always fun to open area because you are usually completely lost the first week. But I can asure you that we can at least find the house now! haha
When 2 companios get to an area together it definately has its advantages, You really dont know anybody so the members show a lot more intrest in you. It has been great to get to know the members here too. I thought that Ramos Arizpe was a strong ward but this is supposedly the best area in the whole entire mission. Of course any area is the best area, it all just depends on your mindset. 

I got to have my first interview this week with President Cahoon. It was a great experience to get to know him and to be able to speak with him face to face. 

Anyways I sure love you a lot and hope that you have an excelent week!

Hey Dad. So I dont think that it is fair that everyone is telling Elder Stockman stories while I am not there! haha
I got busted...
Im glad that you like those guys. They are some of the greatest people that I have ever met. I know that I can work hard and still have fun. Thats what I hope to do. 
( by the way I probably wouldnt have called the mission offices for that question, had I known that Ninataype was there.)
Yeah it is super wierd to see all of those pictures of you guys with them because I was just with them on Tuesday.

Anyways it is going really great here this week with Elder Ogden. We are having a blast! We are opening area so we basically dont know anybody. And we were pretty lost this whole week. But those are experiences that I wouldnt have traded away. Im really gald that I have been sent here, It was kind of a shock at first, But I am really liking it here. The ward is full of really powerful families. We have a family that is progressing. They are a family of 5 that should be getting baptized in 2 weeks. The dad is a member from a long time ago, but his wife and 3 daughters aren't. However they are a super powerful family. I am sure that they already have their testimonies, its just the question of getting wet now.

But we are doing super good, dont worry about me!
love you have a great week!
-Elder Stockman
