Sorry so slow to update the blog..........

It has been a little while to update Elder Armatage's profile. But not because he has not been busy. Besides finding snakes and wanting to see a Gila monster, he has a new companion from Kansas, Elder Hawes. They are working very hard together. We had a great talk with him on Skype on Mother's Day. He talked about the people he has met in the 2 Wards they are working with and what he does each day. He is excited to be there and serving the Lord. Here is his email this week:

"We had a great week! We are killing this area and we are finding soooo much work out here! I love it! I'm having soooo much fun. We have two more baptisms coming up and we are stoked for both in June. We played ball on p day for like 2.5 hours. It was fun and I'm sore today. ha ha Yeah we had our baptism on Saturday. I talked on baptism and confirmed her on Sunday. It was a pretty cool thing. I'm addicted. ha ha I want to baptize everyone I meet! How was Idaho? How was the zoo? I miss those little kids! ha ha Thanks for sending me D&C. I love reading it,  sec 110 I read every time I go to the temple. I love that section.  That baptism was great. The girls is 9, her mother has a super rich boyfriend and he's not a member(yet) but he took us all to lunch after. 8 of us to the cheese cake factory!!! It was really good. Then we had a lesson with the boyfriend and he would be a great member someday but i don't know if its today. ha ha But we will keep trying."

It is so fun to see how much he is growing and enjoying his mission (except for the heat - that is the first thing he said to us on Skype!)

He mentioned again how much he loves getting letters..........
