the Den of Og!

Hola Famila,

OGDEN!!! The Den of Og. It is simply fabulous. This transfer has been AMAZING so far!! I don't ever want it to end!! This is seriously my mission dream..My favorite place with my favorite person!! Who could ask for anything more?? The Lord keeps blessing us with miracles. I love biking/walking, it makes me feel like more of a missionary, like I'm working harder, and it feeks good to be getting sun and exercise. I come home every night exhausted, and consequently my insomnia has totally been cured!! I sleep like a log. I feel like because we are so close we are able to really focus the work because we have nothing in our companionship to work out, and everything is so enjoyable. Even rain and being smelly and grouchy people and embarrassing things are a hilarious good time with Cline. We had a baptism on Saturday and it was awesome!! She is such a solid convert...so cute and she knows her scriptures backwards and forwards. her baptism was really spiritual. We always share the message of the restoration at baptism while they get dressed, and it was a good audience. Our baptism goal for May is 4-6. we are at 3 now, but we have faith that we will reach our goal if we keep working hard! We have already had some others and a few more planned this month! We started teaching this new girl last night, she's pretty awesome! I like her a lot.
So we had Zone conference this week...AMAZING!! Best ZC ever, hands down. You wanna know why?? Because Freaking Alex Boye came and spoke/sang! Only my favoritest and first black man ever to be in the MoTab!! He's pretty much a celebrity around here...but his message was so inspiring! And his voice was amazing! We got to sit in the front row..practically saw his adam's apple bobbing up and down! But this is not all..Cline and I got a special audience with him before the show!! We got to go back to the room where Boye and his accompanist were practicing for a meet and greet! They were so nice. he asked me what my favorite song was that he sang and I started singing "rocca my soul in the bosom of Abraham!" and then he started singing along! I SANG WITH ALEX BOYE!!!! AND HE SAID I HAD A GOOD VOICE!!!! Everyone was trying to get me to sing with him onstage, but I said NOOO THANK YOU!!! I would die of a heart attack!!

Well, I love you all to distraction! You are the bestest besty McBestersons, all youse guys.

Transferred to Ogden

Hey famblee,

How is it going? Well as for me and my house we are having a grand old time in Ogden!!! I have been here just shy of a week and I absolutely LOVE it!!! We are in a walking area! We cover 6 wards. Smallest area ever. But it is still a lot of ground to walk, so we are trying to get some bikes! But it is a lot of fun to walk around, you get to contact a lot of people. I have been really happy but totally exhausted at the end of every day.

Our apartment was nasty beyond nasty! we moved in after elders and it was DISGUSTING!! NEVER again. smelled like the dickens, with disturbing surprises around every nook and cranny including (but not limited to) plethoras of moldy food underneath every peice of furniture, candy bars with bites taken out of them strewn every which way, etc. The bedroom is a most attractive shade of blood red, and the shower is made out of stone like a lil lil mountain. Our house must be a million years old, it's bright blue with christmas lights :) pretty much ghetto fabulous.

Being comps with Cline is amazing!!!! I love it I love it i love it. It's like a party every day but we work really hard.

Well, I gotta go!
