Commencement Bay 6/6/2016

This week was pretty good. It entailed a lot of work, between office work and just normal missionary work. It seemed like Elder Goldstrehm and I were just running at times. By way of office work, we took a bunch of furniture to different missionaries and that took up most of Friday. It was quite the job trying to get mattresses and dressers from the back of the storage out, but we did it. Luckily I had some background in pulling trailers because turns out Elder Goldstrehm didn't, so I had to drive. Thanks to my old landscaping job hahah!

Well, update on the area: My new companion is Elder Goldstrehm. He is from Holiday, UT and is a super hard worker. Which is good because we hardly waste a minute. He was also a wrestler in high school for Skyline High so we get along great! The area so far has been hard to figure out my way around because of so much construction, so we end up taking a bunch of detours. It is a great area for missionary work. It is a lower income area but also has some great views of the water front and has a lot of city. 

Last night was pretty neat. Elder Goldstrehm and I went to a baptism for a guy who got baptized. His story was quite amazing. Elder Goldstrehm was able to work with him when he was in the beginning of his mission like a year ago. This man had just gotten out of jail and wanted to get baptized because he went to the church in the prison and knew it to be true. Well, after a long process of working out the details, he was able to be baptized last night. It was incredible to see the amount of love and support that this one man received. He mentioned that it was not an easy road, but because of all of the members in his life and the leaders he had pushing him forward, he was able to overcome some of the trials he faced from previous choices in his life. The most important thing that I learned last night is that God is so merciful and forgives you for anything as long as you have a truly penitent heart and have forsaken your sins. I know that this man who had once made poor decisions in his life was, in fact, the cleanest person in that room after he was baptized. This reminds me of the verse in John 3:16. But how true it is!

Well I hope that you all have a great week and enjoy the beginning of Summer! 

Love you all!
Elder Bullough
