Week 24

DSC01874Yay! Transfer calls came! I’m so excited, I’m going to go to Moses Lake with Elder Dexter he was my first Zone Leader. My other first Zone Leader is the new AP in the mission. It is going to be a whole bunch of fun there. I hear they even have a Home Depot. Moving up in the world.

Well it was weird how fast this transfer went I’m so glad that I’ve kept my journal because otherwise all those days would have been forgotten. Were I’m serving next is going to be all Spanish work, which I hope means I don’t have to translate during sacrament meeting. Well have a nice week! This first picture is the Branch President and his family and the second are the Birds.DSC01805

Week 23

Evil DogWow this week was interesting. We met a witch and my companion is officially entranced. We barely managed to get below our mile limit last month and I found out that our car can go a max speed of 113 mph. I managed to have massuman curry it was the best meal I’ve had on the whole mission. The members here are the best.

Well not much has happened other than that. We had stake conference and the missionaries got to sing. Then after we sang they asked us to just sit up on the stand the rest of the two hours. I love people watching me take notes. I met the parents of one of my companions at the MTC and I found out that another one of my MTC companions went home. 2/5 of my MTC comps are already home.

Week 22

Pues wow. So we definitely had a dramatic week. It felt like a novala. So we were supposed to have a baptism yesterday but then crap hit the fan and we’re still picking up the pieces. So we’ve been meeting with Lucy everyday this week before the baptism and everything was going good till on Tuesday her ex-boyfriend showed up while we were teaching her. It was weird but we taught them both in another one of our perfected Spanglish lessons. On Wednesday and Thursday he was there as well and we were getting a little worried.

Then on Friday morning we get a call from sister Maughn saying she was thinking that Lucy was still smoking and we’re like whatever but I guess we’ll ask anyways. So we ask and she’s like well kinda and then we’re like darn looks like we have to wait another two weeks. Then she starts crying and leaves. Then we were talking to her friend Janelle then we left and a bunch of junk happened and now Lucy is in Pasco.
But the good news is we got cinnamon rolls yesterday and Sister Christiansen promised to make us massaman. Have a good week!

Week 21

DSC01597Wow well we had a good valentines day. By that I mean we started riding bikes this week and while we were stopping to get mail some girl we’ve never seen before, which is weird because we’re in small little Mattawa, and she gave us a Klondike bar. I’ve never had one  before but it was pretty good. Anyways than latter we went to the Spanish Branch’s valentines party. Or rather we went on a quintuple date. It was awkward DSC01550and Elder Trotter was not accepting anything. Yet not the worst date I’ve ever had.

We are having a baptism this week it’s going to be awesome. Um well enjoy these photos and have a good week.

Week 20

DSC01500 (Small)Pues. Oh I had our second Baptism this week and a few more on schedule for the coming weeks. It’s really exciting seeing so many people try to change their life. We had a super cool experience with one of the ladies we have on date.
She had just moved from Kennewick and is staying with one of the less actives.

She had told the branch president that she wanted to be baptized. So we met with he
 r and it turns out she’s be meeting with the missionaries for 6 months. It was super sweet because she just moved in completely ready to be baptized.
Anyways the dairy was fun. We saw a cow give birth

and they had like 12000 cows there. So that was exciting. Our car tire exploded yesterday after we got a few inches of snow. It was pretty sweet. Elder Trotters pretty awesome but I think he has terrets or something because he always seems to shake. Anyways he’s a good missionary and always ready to talk with the peeps.

Week 19

DSC01343 (Small)Yay we had transfers it’s super fun. The new Elder is Elder Trotter he’s a stud. It was really funny yesterday because being fast Sunday he was super tired, so I called up our branch mission leader and we had nothing but beans for dinner he was not so happy after that. At least he got untired enough to be mad at Jorge, I still haven’t told him I put him up to it.

We didn’t get much sleep last night there were fireworks and whatever else after the SeaHawks won the Super Bowl. It was so crazy. They were up till 3 in the morning. It’s just DSC01349 (Small)a good thing today is P day or we’d be dead. Anyways we are going to the dairy today and having a sweet little tour! It’s going to be super good I’ll probably get some fresh milk.

Well we are having a baptism this Saturday. It’s super exciting. Enjoy these pictures of stuff. Oh yeah also I got the coolest scarf from Peru ever!! Huh well anyways have a great week!

Week 18

Transfer week! It’s crazy this week was one of the fastest ever on the mission. Oh I think I know why. We had temple P-day on Wednesday last week so it actually was a shorter time since the last time I was able to email.

Well my companion, Elder Hall, got transferred to Pasco 5th and I get to stay here with my new companion Elder Troter. I hear he’s super mean. That’s ok though, I’ll whip him in to shape.  Let’s take a moment and enjoy the best pictures of Elder Hall that I have…  We’ll miss you Elder Hall.
Maybe Elder Troter will be good at pool so I can actually test my skills on him. It just wasn’t fun winning so hard. We had an exciting week a whole bunch more people on date and people actually came to Church!!! Honestly I don’t know why it’s so hard to go to Church. It was super good though.
Some crazy guy came up to us in Walmart and followed us around while we were shopping telling us how the Oclevict Jews run everything from the money in France to Hollywood, and also that you don’t have to pay income taxes if you don’t sign your W-4 form. It was weird I just wanted you to know.
