Yesterday marks my 10th month on my mission. I am at a loss of words.......... How could it have gone so fast?! Are you sure it is 10 months? I am going to pretend it has only been 3.
This week, I got to have another lesson with the C family! This time was awesome because President Eaton and Brother Whatcott were there! Brother Whatcott was the former bishop in Elk Run and is known to be a spiritual giant. When we let members of the ward know how our lessons have been going they would usually say, "Wow! You are really bringing in the big guns!" It is true. President Eaton helped the shy members of the family totally open up and share comments! Brother Whatcott shared a testimony that would convert anyone! It was pretty amazing. We taught about daily prayer and scripture study, especially as a family. When we asked them if they would pray and read the scriptures as a family every single day, they said, "Oh, we have already planned to do that." Someone from the ward showed them a conference talk about families and the C's have been applying what they found in it! Wow! The members of this ward are just so great! They have already been planning on going to the temple after Brother C. and I. his son are baptized, too! May 7th is their baptism day and they will be confirmed during Sacrament Meeting on Mother's day.
Elder Davidson and I have been pretty busy (as always) with office work this week. We got to go to the Elk Run Ward Chili Cook-Off on Saturday and it was awesome! The C's came and had a great time. I hope all of you have had a great week! I love you all!

|This is kind of what Graham looks like. There is no highway, just all small roads and spread out neighborhoods. That is why it takes 1 and 1/2 hours to get to Graham compared to the 1 hour to get to Puyallup South (The stake just north of Graham).|
|We went down to Graham this week to close some apartments. Graham Stake has half of Mount Rainier in it (and it is the southern most part of the mission), so it looks really close!|
