February 15, 2016

Hola hola hola. So a lot has happened this week so this might be a long one. I got transferred to canby Oregon. Not much happens in canby Oregon it is not very densely populated. Also it is in the same zone I was in before. Same stake haha. My companion is elder hill. We get along great. He is from Arizona. He actually went to byui too, but we didn't know each other there. We have a few investigators. The work isn't crazy good here, but it's not bad either. We live in this ghetto duplex, but it's actually pretty sweet. We have a yard so that's cool. There are a ton of stray cats that live around our house. One got in our house once and we were chasing it around it was jumping everywhere. We might kill one and eat it one of these days so stay posted. Our neighbor told us the Mexican cartel lives in our neighborhood, but I haven't seen em so I'm not sure. Our back fence has razor wire on it so we have a beautiful view in our backyard. Not. My new address is 240 Se 3rd avenue canby Oregon 97013 if you were wondering. This week we killed it as far as missionary work goes. We taught a bunch of lessons and we found 4 new investigators. Which is a ton considering we only had about 4 investigators to start with. So we were pretty pumped. We were wondering what was going on because we didn't even work that hard. I thought maybe the lord knew we weren't gonna work that hard so he just kept the investigators close to each other. For example we were tracting for 20 minutes and found 2 investigators and gave away 3 book of Mormons. One house we knocked on we were sure we were about to get kidnapped or something. It was a mobile home that was really run down and dirty. There was this thing on the door that said "insane asylum". the porch was leaning to the side about ready to fall apart. We said well here we go and knocked. The window was open and we could hear someone creepily cackling inside after we knocked... Then It was silent we were looking at each other like whaaaaaaat.... Then this lady opens the door. We give her a Book of Mormon and a pamphlet she was really excited about it and we set up a return appointment. It was crazy. Also we found these strange creatures while we were Tracting. They have the feet and bill of a duck. The face of a rooster. The butt of a chicken. The body of I don't know what. I was laughing so hard I was crying when we knocked on this persons door. They didn't answer so we took selfies with the doosters (duck roosters). It was so funny. I'll attach pics of them. That's All I can remember about this week so peace and blessings.

Spiritual thought:
Watch this video
Good Things to Come (4:55)

Good Things to Come (4:55) Elder Jeffrey R. Holland recalls his days as a poor young father with a broken-down family car and testifies that for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, there are better days and good things to come.

Love you all,
Elder Garfield
