Hey Ya'll,What a week this has been. This last week we had transfers and Elder Roper and I said goodbye to the Ulloa family for now. They are so great and got to meet Elder Oaks this last Sunday at a special Stake Conference. I have been called as a trainer. Yep you heard that right. Can you say overwhelmed? Apparently President Mortensen and the Lord see potential in me. I jest, but I really do feel a heavy responsibility for my new companion Elder McDonald. I am attaching a picture of us.

Here's our little angle Elly this week!
Wow you both got transferred this past week! And what a week! Mark O., You had the amazing experience of participating in the baptism of the Uolla family!
And Spence you got moved to the city of Ollomoc to serve with the CES missionaries brother and Sister Bowen who are from our stake!!!! They know and love many of the same people we do here and now they are there with you!!!
I had a very spiritual experience with your Grandpa Keddington yesterday.
I called him to talk to him about coming out for Kirks wedding. As we talked he said, "so have you heard that I've been going back to church?" I said, "Yes dad I think I have." Then he asked me if I would like to hear about why he's gone back to church after nearly 50 years." I said, "of course I would like to hear."
He said, "Have you heard of the movie 17 miracles?" yes I have!!! Then he said that while he was watching it a powerful feeling of love and gratitude came over him towards his ancestors who sacrificed so much for our family. He said he has to take the progress slow but he does attend church now!!!
And he was crying while he told me. I've never seen him cry!
How sweet! Then he told me that he loves us all and his posterity and he was weeping. Wow direct blessing from both your settings apart!!!
Also Kirk went to sacrament meeting at his fiances' ward for her brothers homecoming:)

Mom!That is amazing. I am so happy to hear this about Grandpa Keddington. I've always liked him. You probably already thought about this but maybe recommend to him Alma 32 (faith is like a seed) :)
