Transfers! (Week 27)

This week has been a busy one. We had transfers on Wednesday and we now have Elder Memmott from Nephi Utah in our threesome. He's a great missionary and excellent District Leader (even though he is a new one). Elder Linam got really bad food poisoning on Thursday so we were inside most of the day, but we got invited to B's home that evening for dinner so Elder Linam slept to get his strength up so we were able to go. It was an excellent dinner! B~ cooked us T-bone steaks as big as our faces with bacon mash potatoes (Oklahoma knows how to do it right). After dinner they got to get to know Elder Memmott and then we read Nephi 8 about the tree of life. Their oldest son D~ was gone in Texas for spring break but we still had an excellent discussion.

On Saturday the branch had a family activity with food and games. B's family came and we had a ton of fun. The branch members are awesome and are kind and social with everyone. The next day on Sunday half of B's family came to church, and it was probably the greatest sacrament meeting I've been to thus far on my mission. The Boger Family gave talks on the Book of Mormon, temples, eternal families, and the importance of the home. During Sister Bogers talk I looked over at J~ and she was crying, she had the hymn book open to Love at Home. The talks that were given were so powerful. I was kind of bummed that only J~ and K~ were there. Tonight we are going over to their home and we are going to talk more about the doctrine of Christ, focusing on Baptism and receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost. It is going to be great. 

Sorry this email is so short, we are at members home right now doing p-day email and they have a drum set, but that's not the main reason why this email is short haha my companions are eager to play sports. 
I love you all and hope you have an excellent week!

Sincerely, Elder Watkins
B, Me, D, J, and K
Me and my brother
