Week #98

Hey Mis!

Sounds like things are going well back home. That's cool you guys got to honor Mom's birthday! I bought a Slurpee the day before in her honor haha.

Our week was pretty good. We had zone conference! So I got to see Elder Aitchison and Elder Williams, because they're in neighboring zones. It was pretty cool. I definitely learned a lot from President Youngblood too, he's going to be really good for the mission. I also got to exchange with Elder Brady in his area. He's been out a little less than a year, from Tucson, AZ. He's a really good guy, and we found some cool people to teach that day! Elder Shiffler and I had a cool lesson with a part-member family named the Allens. They're awesome! We had a pretty spiritual lesson, and they all came to church! Which was really awesome to see!


Sorry it's kind of a shorter email, but I hope everything is going well! Have a great week!

Love you Mis!

Week #97

Hey Mis!

Sounds like a pretty chill week! I heard about the homerun derby and the All Star Game, that sounds fun! And I've heard good things about Spider-Man too.


My week was pretty good! We had our first MLC with our new prez, President Youngblood! It was really good, I enjoyed it a lot. I also went on exchange with Elder Foiles this week, one of the APs, in his area. It was a good exchange. We talked a lot about the zone's needs because it's struggling. We had a good day proselyting wise, we had some awesome lessons and found some cool people to teach. I also got to drive THE ALTIMA. I know, it doesn't sound like much, but the APs have a 2017 Altima, which is most likely the nicest car in the mission. It's definitely better than the Corollas I've driven for the last 9 months. 

Since it was Slurpee day on Tuesday, Elder Shiffler and I hit BOTH 7 Elevens that were in our area. It was pretty fun haha. The work is slowly improving, the ward council gave us a bunch of referrals this week that we're going to hit up. Some people that we've been teaching cut ties, but it's not bothering me, because it means they weren't ready for the gospel!


That was pretty much my week! I'll send pics in a separate email. I hope you have a great week!

Love you Mis!

Week #96

Hey Mis!

Sounds like a fun week! That's awesome that you got to go to Boston. I hope you had a great holiday!


My week was pretty good! My birthday was fun. We got to meet President Youngblood that day. He's cool! He's really funny, and really humble. His daughter has the same exact birthday as me, even to the year haha.


Some members also invited us to their barbecue for the 4th, and they sang happy birthday and gave me a cake. The Merrills, the family I taught in my last area, also surprised me later that day with some cupcakes and balloons. It was a pretty cool birthday!


I did a couple exchanges this week. First, I was with Elder Malcolm in our area. He's from Idaho, and he's a pretty cool guy. We had a great lesson on the exchange, where we taught a lady named Margo! She's set to be baptized Aug. 12! It was a really spiritual lesson and exchange.


I also did an exchange with Elder Hills. He's from Texas, and he came out with me. It was definitely an interesting exchange. I didn't know him very well, so getting to know him was interesting. We saw some cool miracles on our exchange with the people that we found to teach!

Have a great week!

Love you Mis!
