Our Trip Up North

On our last trip to Reno we took a couple of days to visit some of the out-lying areas of the mission. One afternoon we drove up to Susanville, Greenville, and Quincy, California.   These little communities are the western most part of the mission.  The area is beautiful, lots of mountains and lots of green trees.  There is a lot of work to do and the elder's are keeping busy.  Elder Lane and Elder Lopez serve in Susanville. Elder Naval and Elder Barton are serving in Quincy.

When we finally arrived in Quincy it was about 9:00 p.m.
Elder Barton and Elder Naval had just moved into a new apartment
and were about ready to call it a day.  We were glad that we got to
visit with them and see their new home.

The next day we ventured out to Winnemucca and Battle Mountain. These two communities are the eastern most part of the mission.  This area is a different kind of beautiful, lots of flat land and lots of open space.  Elders Callirgos, Christensen, Miller and Cedeno serve in Winnemucca.  Elders Theurer and Flores serve in Winnemucca.  There is plenty of work to keep these eldes busy also.




We were able to visit with all the elders serving in Winnemucca 
Elders Cedeno, Miller, Sister Black, Elders Christensen, Callirgos
We traveled to Battle Mountain to attend a baptism.
Elders Theurer and Flores have been working with this family, the father was a member, the
sons were baptized about a month ago and the daughters and the mother were baptized
the day that we were there.  What an exciting time!

Also while we were in Reno, we joined Elder Williams and Elder Camp in their companion study.

 
I had a night available while President Black was meeting with stake presidents.
I took the opportunity to go with Sister Spencer and Sister Maumau to teach a lesson to an investigator.
