11 days...... Well, I don't exactly know what to write. Considering this is my second to last letter home I guess it better be something good. A lot of the things I could write I feel would be much better just to talk about in person. We found a new investigator named Brian this week who is super solid. We got his info from a referral that was sent to us. He referred himself through one of the church websites. We went to his place one night this week and he invited us right in. We got to know him a little bit and figured out that his wife is a member of the church and brought her a lot of happiness. He is looking for that happiness as well and said he figured if it worked for her it could work for him. He has no religious background and is starting to just now to be exposed to religion. We started with the very basics of who our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are. We invited him to church and he came to all three hours. We met him on Thursday and by the time we talked to him on Sunday he was already through the first book of nephi. He told us he feels really behind and wants to catch up. He is awesome, but I had the realization that I won't be here when he is eligible for baptism. That was our most exciting thing that happened. We are always busy here in the office. We are always moving things for people and have certain tasks that we are working on. We have been going around and making a spare key for all of the apartments around the mission so we can have access. We recently have had a few experiences when someone gets locked out and we don't have a spare key to get them in, so that is the reasoning behind that. We also moved ourselves this week. We moved from our townhouse to an apartment across the street. It is a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom so it is nice while there is only 3 of us here. The assistants are going to move in here as well, but one of them goes home with me and doesn't want to move his last transfer. It is good because we have access to all of the furniture so we can get what is best and put it in our place. That was my week in a nutshell. I am excited to see you guys! I love you!

Hello everyone! So...interesting week to say the least. First of all I will explain my move. We were at our place on Thursday afternoon just chillin with the other elders that lived across the street. We get a call around 4:15 from our mission president. I didn't really think anything of it so when my companion said it was for me I was a little concerned. I answered the phone and he told me that he would like for me to serve the next 4 weeks in the office. So I am now in another tripanionship working as an office elder. Basically our job is to make sure that the mission stays running. So we move furniture, deliver necessary items all across the mission, and many many more. I just feel like a mailman. And I'm tired. We live in a town home so that's nice. It's a little old and run down, but it is a lot roomier than a normal apartment. We live with the assistants which is weird. It's fine though. We barely see each other and at night I'm so tired I go home and basically go straight to bed. We are also in charge of everything to do with iPads. It was interesting to know this morning as we were working with a few that we were handling about 20,000$ worth of electronics. And that's just ones that we are sending back to salt lake to let them do things with it. Another perk of being in the office is that we have a vehicle. More specifically a 2015 Chevy Silverado. So I thoroughly enjoy driving a truck around. Um in regards to if I have thought at all about what I want to do, I have given it a tiny bit of thought, but no specifics. I definitely want to do something with my hands. I have thought possibly about electrical engineering or something along those lines. Possibly mechanical engineering. But that was just a thought. I really don't have any idea. I know I want to get a job and work for a little bit. So that's my "plan". Good for Spencer. I just say way to go. Getting it done. I don't know if I want to get married that fast, but I definitely don't want to wait a really long time. So that's all that happened this week. I think this is a good change, but I am sad to leave since I was in a good group. But it will be good. Love you guys!
