WEEK 19: Davis County Reunion!

February 9, 2015

Hey everybody!

This week was crazy! So much happened, and I really have no clue what to write about. On Tuesday we had transfers, where I met my new companion, Elder Tyson Smith! Elder Smith is from Farmington Utah, and graduated from Viewmont High! The other two Elders we live with are Elder Skinner from Idaho and Elder Jason Tooley, from Bountiful! We almost have an entire Davis County apartment!

Sonoma is an awesome little city that is about 50% English speaking and 50% Hispanic, which is awesome for us :). So far we haven't had time to really work in our area. On Thursday we planned for the week, then on Friday we had a zone meeting in Napa. Sonoma is technically part of the Napa Zone, but we are pretty isolated from all other missionaries. We are the unofficial Sonoma zone, with 6 missionaries, 2 sisters and 4 Elders.

On Saturday we blitzed a city about an hour away called St. Helena. It was cool getting to know the other missionaries a little bit more. We finished the week off with Stake Conference on Saturday night and Sunday morning. The Oakland Temple presidency spoke and so did the Stake Presidency. Vallejo is also a part of the Napa Stake, so I was able to say goodbye to the Ramos Family (My recent converts) and the rest of the members, one last time :)

The only restaurants in Sonoma, besides the 10 billion taco trucks, are McDonald’s and Taco Bell! We've been to Taco Bell 4 times this week! Not a good idea. Also, groceries are outrageously expensive in Sonoma, so every Monday we plan on driving half an hour to Napa to shop and play basketball with the other missionaries!

Next week I'm sure I'll have more experiences to share with you, once we meet the members here :). It's definitely a very big challenge to White Wash into an area that doesn't have much work going on. We now have the challenge of finding people to teach, because we have like no investigators! Should be awesome!

Sorry for the super boring email this week.. Hopefully it'll be better next week! Love you all!
