So this week was pretty flippn' awesome.  It was really hard to leave Eugene but Medford is awesome.  My new comp is pretty awesome too!  He is from California and his name is Elder "H", but if you have been writing Elder "D", could you still do that?  That would be good.   Just think of Elder "D" as a new adopted son :). 

Elder "H" and I are having some fun.  It's nice to be with a missionary that has been out longer than me and that I can learn from.  Kind of answered my prayers and helped me figure out how to be a better missionary.  The ward I am in now is way good.  The best missionary run ward I have ever been in.  Granted - I have only served in two other wards but this one is good.  The ward missionaries actually teach the recent converts and they give them callings.  They also take care of us and help us with lessons. I love it.  Oh - and I drive a MINI VAN!  How cool is that. Her name is Lola  [Ben always names his cars - haha]  and she is a stow n go.  We have to drive people every where, so we get it.  Pretty much awesome! 

Also this week we were able to set a baptismal date with a 17 year old kid named Sergio.  His mom is a member but she is only some what active.  We meet with him and taught the "Restoration" lesson and the spirit was so strong -  the power of the spirit.  

Also we have been focusing a lot on using the Book of Mormon and showing members how it is a tool that they can use to help their friends know that the church is true.  So the other night we were able to share that with a family and they started making a game plan on how they can share the Book of Mormon with their friends.  Pretty much a great fantastic week. 

I am thinking the mission office will let me call sometime and let you know when we will call on Christmas  That's what they let us do on Mothers day.  Not totally sure, but I will let you know.  Hope all is well. Love you all. Thanks for being awesome.
