Elder Pennington and his new companion Elder Smith
feasting on some In & Out Burger.

Looks like he managed to pack his life-sized
Michael Jordan cut out for the trip to Moval.
This week was my first week in my new area that’s called Moreno Valley.   My new companion, Elder Smith, is awesome, and I am enjoying this new area.  I feel like there are a lot more people outside and so probably a couple times a day we do what we call “Beat to Teach.”  So if there are people out playing ball, we challenge them to a game of “two on two” and when we win, we show them the new Easter video about Jesus Christ and try and get a follow up appointment.  Now, every time we are in certain areas they are like “Hey Elders,  are ya’ll gonna ball with us?”  It is pretty funny.
I was able to help finish up teaching the missionary discussions to a young woman named Cheyenne.  She is getting baptized this next Sunday.  She is super solid and has a strong testimony.  We have a lot more potential in this area, and I am looking forward to return to my last area in a few weeks for two baptisms.  Other than that, things are going well out here.  It is hard to believe that I have been out five months today.  It feels like I have only been out for like a month!
Well, I hope all is well and I miss you all.  Thank you for all of my true friends.  Thank you for the love and support ya’ll give me.  If anyone ever needs me, let me know!
