Hi family, how are you? I am doing great here in Pendleton. It is cold though. This week has been pretty good. We have been going around to a lot of less-actives and Part member families, and meeting them. There a lot of awesome people here. I love it. We had an awesome lesson with an investigator. He recently got into a car crash and got pretty banged up, and he went back to smoking and drinking. We went to his house with some members, and the member asked him a bunch of questions that got him thinking. I bore my testimony to him. The spirit was strong. And then the investigator threw away his marijuana and dumped out his alcohol. It was a really cool experience. Last night we had a dinner with a member family, and the dad's girlfriend was there. She is not a member. And so after dinner we taught the restoration. It was awesome, cause I could feel the spirit. She accepted to read the book of Mormon. It has been awesome to be here cause there hasn't been much work done. This is the first time in years that missionaries have been assigned to only the Pendleton 1st ward. I am so excited. The ward is excited that there are elders again. There hasn't been any elders for about 3 years now. My new companion is pretty cool. His parents divorced when he was very young. He has been out for 16 months. I have been out for about 13 months. It is kinda scary. we talked to a return missionary, and he said the second half goes by faster :( I love being a missionary. It is hard though too. So my mission call letter says that I will be speaking Spanish, but that the mission president can change it according to the missions needs. It happens a lot in this mission, especially since there are not a lot of Spanish areas. I love speaking Spanish, but it is all good!
