Elder Zehr

The Hatch Family - Elder Wood loves this family

My mom asked me a ton of questions so i thought id just answer them as my email. It makes things a lot easier. Transfers were last week and i got a new companion named Elder Zehr. He's from Toronto Canada. Hes super cool and plays football, so we get along great. He is a QB. This week we've already gotten things up and goin in St. Paul. We taught about 20 lessons this week. Only one of them was a investigator but its all good. WE'RE WORKING!!

*Do you set your alarm or do you just wake up on your own? I set an alarm
*Do you get ready for the day before or after individual and companion study? After studies:)
*Do you study one topic for a week for companion study or a different topic every day? What are you studying right now? For comp study we read the Bible together because neither of us can stay awake if we read it in personal studies and then we discuss it. We also play this object and principle game where you choose a random object then you have to relate it to a principle such as the restoration, our life on earth, baptism, etc... Or we go over lessons we have for that day.

*How often do you go on splits or exchanges and who do you go with? We go on splits with the zone leaders once a transfer and twice with our district leader a transfer.
*What do you do on your P-Day's besides laundry and email? Theres absolutely nothing to do in St. Paul on P-day and no missionaries within at least an hr away so we just sleep and email and go to the store.

Elder Wood

Elder Wood's bed - He has done that to his pillow since he was tiny. Made me laugh when I saw it

Temple Day during their visit to Edmonton

He has always had a thing for pigs...

The Hatch family gives him fresh milk straight from the farm. Elder Wood loves it!
