New Companion!

Hello all!

So I completed my 12 week training! Elder Timothy got transferred but I got to stay. My new companion's name is Elder Brinkerhoff and he is from Nevada. He is really cool and is a big change from Elder Timothy. This week was kinda slow for the work because Elder Timothy had to pack his luggage. He has so much stuff and he even gave some of it to me. Our New Years was pretty fun. Elder Timothy, another set of Elders, and I went over to a members house in another ward and we have a mystery diner that was Harry Potter Themed. We also played "Settlers of Catan". It was a blast. They put me as the designated driver out of me and my companion! It is a little scary driving in the snow but I manage haha

My ward switched to 1:00 to 4:00. I don't like it too much but it's alright. So on Tuesday, Elder Timothy, another set of Elders, and I went to Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch and I did their "Blazin Challenge". I had to eat 12 of their hottest wings in 6 minutes or under. And my time was 5:13. I won a shirt and a sticker. They also took my picture and they are going to put it on their wall. Good proselyting tool, lol. It is a little cold here but I'm staying warm.

This Thursday we got to listen to Elder Bednar speak at a conference, and it was a blast. He was so inspiring. It was so cool, he gave us 3 talks to read before we have our meeting with him and then, for pretty much the whole 3 hours we were with him, he asked us questions about them. He also gave us a time where we could ask him anything we wanted. There were so many missionaries that he didn't get through to all of us, but a lot of questions were answered! We actually have a new investigator we are teaching. We contacted him on a walking path. He is golden. I really like Arvada and the ward I am in. Today is Zone P-Day and it's the only P-Day the Elders get to do things with the Sisters. In a few hours my Zone and I are going hiking. I miss you all greatly.
