May 14, 2014 Transfer

Elder Armatage has been transferred to Payson, AZ and is very happy about it!

"the drive to Payson was like an hour and a half. Not bad it's nice here. its 70s right now kinda like Snowflake hahaha you can hear my testimony when I'm home......hahaha yeah he does, he's a great man I love him. (talking about his mission president) yeah do that family history!! its fun stuff!! you have a good letter coming your way! I like my new comp, he goes home in 12weeks I will learn a lot from him. I can tell the work is going up here. I haven't met a whole lot of people but I will in time. I'm in a branch and a ward so we will have stuff to do. We just had a baptism a week ago and trying to find more people to teach. O also I sent a box of books home it will be there in about a week feel free to read any of those books. There's some good ones in it I think dad would like. Well not much to report this week but you will get some letters and a box and a better email next week when I have stuff to talk about." 

Will have to upload the picture he sent on Facebook, since it will just not work here...

Email from May 5, 2014

In our Skype with Elder Armatage, he said I needed to update his blog, so that is what I am trying to do with a few of his emails..........

"WOW that's cool mom that you went to church in Wyoming was everyone in jeans? hahaha How did you like the Suburban? there nice I like them!

"WOW that's really cool that Elder Anderson spoke to the stakes in the area! I love him, his talks are some of my favorite. I love his attitude, there is nothing that can keep him down you know? Who is the next bishop?? This week we had a recall on all Chevy Cruz because 30% of them have a crack in the drive shaft. So we took it in and ours was cracked, so we have a rent-a-car the USS Chevy Impala. That thing is a boat! it a 2014 tho that's nice we will have it for about a month. The work is still slow here hard to work and want to work because it feels like nothing is going on but that is just really slowly. That's all for this week" When we asked if the members help with referrals and he said they are all stretched very thin. Makes it hard for the missionaries, but he says he is where he is supposed to be at this time. Love our son, so proud of him.

Fire - from April 14, 2014 that got deleted somehow...

"So this morning was was interesting at 3:30 a.m Elder Gonser woke me up and said'' want to go on a walk with me''? but me thinking that it was 6 or 6:30 i said yeah sure. then i asked him what time it was he said it was 3:30 but i had already said yes so i had to go. But the reason we went on our walk is because he smelt smoke and heard the fire alarm going off. well the guy down stairs was cooking (who cooks at 3 in the am!!) he was frying chicken fell asleep and it was burning, we saw it was smokin pretty good so we ran to his door knocked he didn't get up. ran to his window he and was yelling at him. by this time the oil was on fire so I jumped the railing opened his back door and was trying to put it out. I grabbed what i thought was baking powder but i think it was baking soda so that didn't work. i ran out went up stairs to wake up elders Russell and Erickson. ran back down stairs as i ran down i saw the fire exsushinger at the bottom of them. i busted out the glass grabbed it ran back in side the guys apt. he had the fry pan and took it to the sink and turned on the water and it went up!! as it went up i sprayed the fire and the fire on the stove top. then the sprinklers went on! was this was all in a matter of like 15 min maybe less. we were both standing out on his porch i asked him if and pets or people were still in there? his dog was still in there and we went back in and got his dog, the smoke by this time was from ceiling to mid body high! so sucked in some smoke but not bad everyone is good and safe."

Wow, we are so thankful that Elder Gonser woke up and so glad they are all safe!!
