Elder Walker – October 2018

Washington Yakima Mission Office Address 1006 S 16th Ave Yakima, WA 98902

I gave my first blessing this week. There is a family in our ward (they’re actually our recent converts and are super awesome!). They are going through some hard times and having some family issues, so we went over with the bishop and sat down and talked with them and then afterward gave them a blessing. It was stressful, but it was cool.

We went to the dog shelter again this week and walked some dogs, the first set we walked were 4 puppies that were super cute but didn’t know how to walk on a leash, so it just turned into us dragging them as a group along. But the next set we did was much better. I found a huge Husky who was super chill and walked by my side the whole time. Towards the end of the walk I ran with her for a little ways and it was satisfying on a primal level.

We had transfer calls on Saturday. We got a call, but no leadership calls were extended which is usually the only reason you get a call. But we found out later that president just forgot, and my companion is getting made a district leader in Wenachee. He’s pretty shook-up about it. It’s funny. But I am leaving and getting a new trainer. I’m getting sent to Selah a place called Naches. I have heard good things about the area and there are mountains there, so I’m happy. I miss the mountains. There aren’t any here in Moses Lake, but I’m sad to leave. We have some awesome members here. We have transfers on Wednesday.

We did some service and had some really good steak so that’s cool!
