New area, new companion, new opportunities

There is no better welcoming of October than that of a wonderful, spirit fested General Conference! I have been transferred to Mountainhome, ID, which is a city 45 miles south of Boise. It is really big with a wopping 15,000 people!!! Like I am stressin’ over here becuase I am driving and there are so many flippin’ cars! It is very pretty in some parts of here and my companion is an amazing missionary. He is from Argentina and his name is Elder Arganaraz. He is super obedient and has been out for like six months and has been here in Mountainhome his entire mission. we cover the entire stake for Spanish, and have a spanish branch of about 11 solid families, but there are like 20 who are less active so we are praying that we can bring the spirit so they can have a desire to come back to church. Anywho, it is definitely an adjustment to be here, but there is a HUGE amount of potential, we just need to find them.
We were able to find two new investigators this week, one of them being a women that we tracted into named Maria, who accepted a Book of Mormon and said she had a lot of time on her hands so she was going to start by reading the introduction. We also tracted into a man named Jose and he was just working out in his yard and so we went out and talked to him about the Book of Mormon and the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ, and how we have that same organization today! There are a lot of people and a lot of hispanics so it will be amazing!
One of my favorite talks was Jeffrey R. Holland’s talk, especially that part when the story of the priest talking to a critic of his when he tells him to not criticize the path he is trying to follow. That was super powerful for me and I truly enjoyed listening to the talks and have much to work on.I hope you enjoyed General Conference, and that you apply at least one thing you learned to your life, I promise as you do so the Lord will bless you immensly. En el nombre de Jesucristo, Amen.
Con Amor, 
Elder Saunders
