Well the dreaded day of TRANSFER CALLS came yesterday and..... I'm headed down to the heart of Edmonton to serve in the GREENFIELD area! I leave tomorrow morning, and I'll be companions with Elder Alvey. I've actually served around him before and I went on an exchange with him and he is awesome, I think we will do great work and have a good time while we are at it. He is a Pats fan too so that's a plus!

Anyways this week was super eventful once again! Tuesday and Wednesday the Tagalog Elders came up because we got a couple appointments with Filipino investigators for them. They are super fun to be around so that was a blast. Wednesday we had a district meeting here in town and it was great! We got to play 4 on 4 basketball afterwards (we have connections at the local college) and it was SO FUN. First time I have played ball other than 1 on 1 since the MTC. We had a great time.

After that I went on an exchange to Athabasca with Elder Moline. Thursday morning in Athabasca I got to go do service at "Alfred's farm" and it was actually a really good time. We just hauled a bunch of hay and did some other little things but for some reason I kind of liked the farm feeling. And he showed me some of his hogs.... Oh my goodness. Those things are gargantuan. Honestly that might have been the highlight of my week just seeing how huge the pigs were!

As for lessons this week, we had a couple good lessons with the fam again, they are still doing great. I'm pretty bummed I won't get to go to their baptism but oh well. We also had a great lesson with Len and the Parks too. He is SO close. Instead of saying "if you get baptized" now we are saying "when you get baptized" to him. I'm guessing he will get baptized next month. We also taught Nxxx (who came to church for the first time in Sunday!) last night and had a little hot dog roast with him and Desiree, it was super fun! We taught him about prophets and it went pretty well.

Well that's my last week in the promised land, Slave Lake. I'm pretty sad to be leaving everything here, but it has been an awesome 6 months and I'm so grateful for the opportunity I've had to serve here and be an instrument in the Lord's hands. I'm excited to have a new experience in Greenfield and I'll tell you all about it next week! I love you all I hope your Easter was 10/10 and I hope you all have at least an 8/10 week this week;) toodles. 🏼
