Dear Family and Friends,                   Monday, February 16, 2015 at 12:54 p.m.

First thing first, I am being transferred, tomorrow. Sorry for the poor heads up, but I am being transferred on the 17th. I am going to Woodland Washington and my new companion will be Elder Smith. Elder Williams is staying in Camas.

Do not send me any mail to any address in Camas! If you already have in the past few days, I am sure the Elders here will find some way to forward it to me. Please address any mail for me to the mission office until further notice.

The weather here has been sunny and warm with clear sky's. We have enjoyed the sunshine and awesome views of mt hood and mt St. Helens.

Monday - preparation day. Not much to tell, played basketball, etc.

Tuesday - had a lesson planned out today. They canceled last minute.

Wednesday - we had a lesson. We talked about who God is, the Book of Mormon, and coming to church. It was a really good lesson.

Thursday - we had a zone meeting this morning. We dropped by the an investigator later today. We talked about that and about their travel plans this summer. We also asked her why she first let the missionaries in. She told us that she normally would not have let them in, but she felt that she should. She said that God works in mysterious ways, and sent the missionaries to her door. We had a lesson with the later tonight. We taught the plan of salvation.

Friday - weekly planning day. The farewell dinner for the missionaries going home this transfer was held today. Elder Rothwell is going home and attended the dinner. So elder Morris came with us (elders Morris and Rothwell are companions). We went to a dinner in Fern Prairie ward. They invited some of their friends over. It was an awesome dinner. The whole dinner the nonmember friend was asking us tons of questions about our missions and what we believe. He basically asked for a Book of Mormon and said he would read it. It was pretty cool.

Saturday - had no lessons set up. Lots of Tracting and stopping by.

Sunday - pretty normal Sunday for having two wards. An investigator got interviewed for baptism today. His baptism got pushed back again to March 6th (for scheduling reasons). There was some sort of youth thing on the night we had planned it. We had a lesson today and talked about priesthood and missionary work. He is so awesome. He has had a pretty tough life.  He is ready for baptism.
