I got to chop would this week.  Twice at 2 separate locations and for different people.  These are pictures of me picking up an axe from a member's home to take to another member's home to use on their wood.

IMG_2040Elder Grasinger is Adam’s companion in Gresham, OR.  (He’s the one with the red face – its a medical condition he has to bear, bummer 😦 )IMG_2039

Weird things he sees in Portland…
IMG_1838 broke his finger while playing dodgeball — he’s seeing a doctor regularly and doing physical therapy to get it back to normal…if that’s possible…ugh.IMG_1839 slightly different than wielding the Sword of Truth, don’t you think…?IMG_1840 IMG_1824 IMG_1823

This is the Bingo night activity I wrote of in an earlier post. It may not look like a big group, but we had a lot of fun that night!

This is a family that my companion and I have been working with. The father's name is Gumencindo Hernadez. His wife was in another room on the phone. Their daughter Jasmine on the far right is a huge help since she read inner scripture on her own without being told to. They attend church regularly and are already one of the pillar families in the group.

This is a picture of my District going out to eat at a restaurant called Gyros. Starting from myself and going around the table: Elder Scoville, Ruesch, Carpenter (my companion), Aiken, Tikoenaivalu, Doyle, and Sister Maughn, Anderson, LeBaron, and Hughes. Sister Hughes was unfortunately cut out of the image which I did not find out until later that day.

From Left to Right: Hermana Hughes, Hermana Anderson, Elder Scoville, Elder Carpenter We are all of the Spanish missionaries in our current area. We share the area completely all work very effectively together. These 2 Hermanas have been working this area for around 3-4 months now and had been praying and fasting for Elders along with the Spanish group for quite a long time. So it's pretty cool to basically, along with Elder Carpenter, be a conscious answer to someone's prayers.

These are some of the people I had dinner with last night. I am getting pretty lucky with food since I am a very picky eater. At almost every meal I have with members, they usually have 1 of 2 vegetables, being broccoli or salad. I love Broccoli, but I'm not the biggest fan of salad. O eat it anyways though, and often finish all of the broccoli. The 2 other Elders in the picture are Lefer Ruesch and Tikoenaivalu. Elder Ruesch is also from Las Vegas. He lives just behind the Temple next to the mountain side which is a nice area. He is now on his last transfer and his final companions name is Elder Last which everyone out here plans to have a lot of fun with. I usually get to have dinner with these 2 about 3-4 times every week at members homes, so I have gotten to know the, both pretty well. We all got to hear Elder Tikoenaivalu share his Testimony in Fijian and offer the departing prey in Fijian yesterday at dinner. I don't believe I have heard that language be spoken before, but it does sound very cool. It is also interesting to feel raw spirit without knowing the exact meaning behind words, but to still know that the words are truth since they are of the spirit.

This is where I was on Valentine’s Day.  There was over 4 hours of driving, but also some very nice views since we were right next to the Pacific Ocean.  There’s also some scenery pictures of where I live and some of the places I’ve been.  (Feb 16, 2015)
