Elder Beckman, The Fishing Missionary!!
Well Hellooooo Everyone!!!
Things have been going great here in the great Land of Cherry Grove! I recently Got a new companion, Elder Jordan Christensen!!! He is from Oregon and is a way sick missionary! It is really funny how similar we are! He is super laid back and chill and doesn't get stressed about anything and is just a way fun person to be around! But that also means that I lost Elder Price..... :( it was so sad to see him leave. You have no idea!! The first couple of days of him being gone, I was super sad and missed him a lot. I really loved serving with him and it was kind of like leaving family all over again. But I feel I will feel the same way for Elder Christensen too.
So this last week was sweet we got a lot of people to church and just had some really fun times!! We have been meeting with a returning member, Allen, a lot lately and we have actually helped him get his Temple Recommend and he is going to come with us to the temple next month!! I was super happy for him and we just had a great time with him! Along with Allen... he is a super awesome member missionary! He was the one who introduced us to Deanna and Anthony and he is now helping us teach his little brother Damien!! It was awesome we set a lesson with Damien and Allen said that it would be more fun if we went fishing and then had a lesson on the shore of a lake.... So I thought about it for about half a second and said '' OF COURSE!!!" So we went to a lake with some members of the ward and had a sweet time fishing and talking about the church!!! Damien came to church the next day and had a great time because of all the boys who came fishing!! It was so cool to see him so happy with friends now.
Last Story was going to transfers to pick up Elder Christensen... Allen was supposed to drive us up to Dayton for transfer meeting and so in the morning we get this call from him saying that a drunk driver hit his car and now he can't take us.... so, at likewe called like 20 members asking to take us up there and they all said no. So we were out of luck and said forget it, we are just gonna drive the mission car up there and just have to sacrifice miles for the month! So we did and it was all ok in the end. We got the miles written off and it was all ok in the end. But Holy cow sometimes when one little thing goes wrong it can cause so much stress ha ha it is nuts
But that is about it for my week I will be sure to have an awesome letter for you all next week!
