Week #42 - Lots of Exchanges

Heyyyy everybody

It has been a crazy crazy week haha we had two awesome exchanges and it was nice because one of them is in the city and I could have died haha I love the city soooo much, it just feels so good haha the cars, entertainment, buildings and people. It's so diverse and interesting, I will say though people treat you like the scum of the earth sometimes and it is really quite sad haha but my companion is leaving home in literally 9 days from now and it's super weird hahah he was making me super trunky but it's kind of subsided. It's just weird to think about that time of going home, it's going to be extremely bittersweet but it will be awesome.

My companion and I have been having a lot of success in our area and our zone led the mission this month which was awesome. I am so not content though and it got bad like three weeks ago so I had to chill a bit haha but we can do so much as representatives of Christ and it kills me to just see missionaries not doing what they can, but I've learned so much lately about people and myself as well and it's been so phenomenal.

Thank you for the videos and pictures they are so awesome, I will send a recording next week :)

Love you all and can't wait to hear back from you :)

Week #41 - Send me videos!!!

Heyyyy everybody

So send me some videos!!! I got some snapchats sent to me and it made me so happy I could cry haha so if you're down to send some videos I will send a voice recording next week haha love you guys :)

Well this week has been cool I went on exchanges with the greenies or the missionaries that are in training and it's been really fun especially because they are going to be the future of the mission and it's awesome seeing how I can help them now so they are prepared for the two years. But I don't know really what more to send except for I am sorry I'm so horrible at writing letters back to you all, but my companion is about to go home so I think about home a lot so there's that haha also he is a nerd so we talk about alllll that nerdy stuff it makes me so happy ha but can't wait to hear from you and see your videos :) 

Also pray that our zone has the faith to find the people prepared for the gospel :)

Week #39 - Hey Beautiful People

Hey my beautiful family and friends!

Awesome week! We had a baptism this week and it was awesome. We've been meeting with a lot of cool people out here and have been able to start teaching part member families to help them become family members for life. My companion is awesome, his name is Elder Radigan and we are both sooooo nerdy and thats what i have wanted is just a super nerdy companion haha so we have been talking about superheros and stuff this past week when we have some free time (which isnt much)

Went on the exchanges with the assistants which was super fun as always and as well a companionship in our zone and it was a really cool time seeing how i can help other missionaries grow. Getting a little more nervous for my zone training but that is all good, to prepare for it i got to call some people from my previous areas and it was extremely fun haha it brought the biggest smile to my face. :D

As well just want to give a shout out to my boy Hayden Cottle for getting his mission call to D.C and the best part Spanish speaking!! So excited for him, give him some love haha :)

As well just wanted to say that i was thinking about how much i am going to miss the mission after its my time haha i know i still have awhile for that but my companions time is almost up and it makes me sad to think about it. This is the only time in our lives that we have the opportunity to be missionaries like this. People just look at you so much differently as a missionary. To all the missionaries out there, live up to the sacred message in which you represent. 

Love you all :)
