Helloooooo Hampton!

Hello Everybody! It's been quite the eventful week with transfers and everything! I spent my last week in Caribou with Elder Beacham, and we got a lot of work done! We visited a lot of our investigators, had some good last lessons with them, and we said goodbye to many of the members that I have come to know and love. I'm definitely going to miss them, but I know that I have other places to be. The Lord has a plan for me. We also visited the Amish store for my last P-day, and it was so cool! I got some nice soap, and even a pencil holder for my desk (handcrafted). Maine will always be a part of me now! :)

After transfers, a lot changed! I'm now in an area that also has a lot of potential, super green, very damp compared to Caribou (I'm thirty minutes from the Bay of Fundy) and has rivers running through it everywhere. It's so beautiful, and I'm really looking forward to serving here.  My area covers the Kennebecasis Valley, which includes exotic places like Quispamsis, Sussex, Hampton, Nauwigewaulk, and much more! I have really enjoyed it! The people here are very nice, just like in Caribou, and there is just a lot of places to be worked with!

My new companion is named Elder Dooley, he is from Hawaii, and he loves to surf, play video games, and do all sorts of things. He has been pretty fun to work with, he has been out as long as Elder Beacham had, and he likes Hampton a lot.

At this time, we basically have no new investigators, we have nobody to really we are focusing a lot on finding at the moment, discovering the area, and trying to talk with as many people as we possibly can! :) It's been pretty successful thus far, and I believe that there are people for us to teach here in the Hampton area. I know that for a fact.

One thing I've been really focused on in my studies lately is the Premortal Life, and how God created a plan for us, and has a purpose that he wants to accomplish. God's purpose is to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. Ours, is very similar, to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them to receive the restored gospel. When we truly understand the Why? in everything that we do, we have a stronger desire to do it! That's been a huge focus I've put on myself, to have Real intent in everything that I do, and to have that desire to serve with all my heart, might, mind, and strength. I love you all! I can't wait to share miracles that happen in Hampton next week!
