August 3, 2015

Hey Y'all
this week was really crazy. Nothing to crazy happened in the MTC, but i really got along with my companion, and also everyone in our room. We had a blast, and my testimony really grew. anyway we left the MTC at 3:30 in the morning, and we had a genius idea to not sleep, so i didnt sleep until i got on the plane. before we got on the plane i hurry and called my mom and told her i would call and talk to her when i got to the airport in Atlanta,because that is where our layover was at. so we got on the plane and i feel asleep. i didnt wake up until we landed. and we got to Atlanta and guess what? they took out all the pay phones. i asked this lady who worked their and she said i could use her cell phone. she was so nice and really saved my. when we got on the plane from Atlanta to Fayettvile i fell asleep for a little bit, but then i started to talk to the guy next to me who was Catholic, and was not looking to change, but it was good to talk to him. We were the first missionaries to serve a full two years in bentonville Arkansas so when we went down the escalator to get our bags a ward from bentoville was waiting and cheering for us. it was really cool to see that. We drove to bentonville and went to the mission home for the night. they gave us where we are going, and who are companions were. I am serving in Fort Scott Kansas. We woke up early the next morning and went in a big loop and dropped everyone off. Well My companions name is Elder Whitby. he is from Washington State and i really like him. Me and him got shotguned which means two new elders in an area. So we really didnt know what the previous elders did. We also got a car. that is really nice. we have only done a little bit of teaching so far. it is mostly just getting to know the people. there are some interesting people here. they are so funny, but 90% of them are missing almost all of their teeth. We have done a ton of service already. we have helped two people move out, and some lady paint her house. it was really crazy, but i love it here. Ok remember that you need to have faith in Ether 12:6 it says " And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen;wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith." so remember faith is super important. I love you guys
