Im with my new companion in indy 1st its right down the road from my old area. Im still in the same stake. My new address is 8515 Red Oak Ct Apt G. Indianapolis IN 46227 and the new address for the mission home is 777 Sunblest Blvd, Fishers, IN 46038.

My new companion is Elder Wood, He is the district leader and We have been called to teach English to Chin people. They are Refuges from Burma. And most of them are baptist. So I will be getting a Burmese tag soon haha. Ive been in this apartment before with my other mission friends when I was with Elder Tafuna and Elder Jenks. So we moved into this apartment Tuesday and have been cleaning and going out and learning the area. Our mission goal is for each Companion ship to find a family and teach them before the end of the transfer. I forgot to mention we were Double transferred in so the trio that was in this area was shipped outta here to another area and we came in like a new start. Or a white wash as most people know it as. So we have a fresh place to work at. Yesterday night When we got home I stayed outside to watch a lunar eclipse. It was so cool to finally watch the moon be covered completely by shadow. My companion is cool hes a pretty nice guy and does what he knows is right so thats good. His name is Elder Wood He is from Pocatello Idaho. He is 19. Update on my boot I hopefully have 3 weeks left with it. But I might have 4 left. We will see...

SO recently Ive noticed how big of a part prayer plays in our lives, and in what we do. The Time that I notice I get affected the most by it is when I pray in the morning. It sets a Better tone through out my day than how my day would have been if I hadnt. And the other time is when we go out knocking on doors or talking to random people out on the street. So after we got all unpacked and settled in we had about a half of an hour left to go do stuff and so we decided we could go knock some doors but before we went out we knelt and prayed together asking to be guided and that we could find people that were willing to talk to us and after the prayer was ended we went out and walked across the street and talked to a nice older lady for a little bit and the next house we went to knocked on the door and no one answered however as we turned to leave a lady pulled up into her drive way and at this time we needed to get headed home but she came out and talked to us asking who we were and was super nice about everything. We talked to her for a few minutes and she and her sister have been wanting to go to church for a while and says its no coincidence that we had showed up when we did. She showed us her Dog (which was a Puggle and was super cute) and after meeting her dog we headed home. I know that we were guided to her home with a little less than 15 minutes of time outside left. I know that this is the lords work and that his hand is in it. I know how much a single prayer can alter your entire day or someones entire life for the better. I know that God loves each and every one of his children. I love all of you and hope you are staying safe and doing well.

So Tomorrow im going to be transferred to a new area so please hold any male or anything you might send. Here is the new mission office Address 777 Sunblest Boulevard, Fishers, Indiana 46038-1167. So it will be the new Address after September 28th.

And since Im moving to a different area ill let you all know what my new address will be. SO this last Saturday My friend Sara Harden was baptized :D She was the first person to let us into her house! When we were driving around I got lost and just decided to go into this random neighborhood. Well we parked and I looked around and saw this big interesting looking house and felt that we should go there because my companion Elder Hackney Who is the Assistant to the president)  told me to choose which house we would knock on first. So we approached this Big house and knocked on the door and no one answered and I saw there were numbers on the doors on the inside so we walked in and knocked on the door. No one answered. We turned around and knocked on the door behind us. And I heard a voice yelling "COME IN" so we looked at each other shrugged and opened the door and Sara was there on the couch and welcomed us in and and sat us down and yelled again saying " Camden! the ministers are here" and he came out and it all started there!

It has been the coolest thing to watch her grow and be strengthened! I love you guys and the work is good!  Have faith and trust in the lord for he will guide you in the right direction!! Love you guys Ill update you after I get my new companion and into my new area!

Hey Everyone hows life treating everybody? I Hope you are all doing well and staying safe. So to let you know whats going on with my foot. Turns out I have a 2nd metatarsal stress fracture in my foot I will be getting xrays today at 1:45 or 11:45 for you guys i think. So I have been running around on that for the past 3 weeks and it popped a few days ago and that hurt pretty bad. It popped on the day that I puked 3 times and was super week and dehydrated and my entire body hurt haha, However I didn't want to cancel our dinner appointment and service appointment. I Threw up once in the morning, once at the ranch we were doing service at and the last time on a guys car coming home. So funny story about that the lady sitting in the passengers seat knew i was sick so when i asked him to pull over he wouldn't he didn't know why and was asking where do you want me to pull over. And I was fighting back puking all over his car. And said pull over please. several times then tried rolling the window down when I gave up on him pulling over, And the stupid window was locked. So I told him to roll the window down and he wouldn't then The lady in the passengers side was like "HES SICK HE'S SICK" So he rolled the window down and i just got my head out and blaarghed all over his car XD  haha oh well. It wasn't to smart of me to go out that day. In the morning I thought I'd be ok because I felt better immediately after throwing up, but as you can see it didn't work out that way. Anyways I'm not complaining I'm just telling you about my week, I thought this week was awesome even with some not so awesome incidents. We haven't had much luck finding anyone to talk to but we are still looking. By the way the library was closed yesterday so I'm emailing today. 

So in other news. Sarah the friend I had found a couple months ago is going to get baptized the 19th with her son Camden! I'm so excited for them and it is amazing to see how much she and her son have grown. Its fun to see how much someone can change and see the happiness that Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father can bring into someones life. I am grateful for the changes in my life and the change I have seen in others lives because of Jesus Christ and his Atonement I am grateful that we have a loving Heavenly Father who sent his only begotten son to die for us. I am grateful for my family, I am grateful for every single one of you and I thankful that I can call you all my friends. I hope that every one of you has a great day and a safe week. And know that you are loved. LOVE YOU GUYS
