November 30, 2015

Well this week was a really crazy week. On monday we played flourball in joplin again. That was a ton of fun. we were only gonna play for a few hours, but we ended up playing for about 4 and a half. my shoulder was pretty sore after it. then on Tuesday Elder Whitby had a meeting in Bentonville so i went to Webb City with Elders Reynolds, and Barton. They both were prettycool, and we had a pretty good day. Then on Wednesday it was our only normal day this week. It was pretty good. we taught Doug, and he gave us both some sweet belt buckles. then on thursday it was thanksgiving. We drove down to Pittsburg to play turkeybowl. i got so sore. We played for 4 hours. then the elders from Parsons came up with us to fort scott, and had dinner with us and a member. We went on Exchanges after, and Elder burch stayed in Fort Scott with me. It was pretty good. for thanksgiving we didnt knock and doors, so we visited with a memeber for a long time. Then on Friday we had zone training meeting in Joplin. so we were back on the road. that went pretty well, then on Saturday we got our transfer calls. i am being transfered to Cassville missouri. I already know my companion. he served in my zone for the first two transfers. i really like him. his name is Elder Thompson. i leave fort scott on thursday, so i am going to do a lot of saying goodbye this week. i kinda have grown to love fort scott, but at the same time i am happy to leave. anyway love you all

So this week was a pretty crazy week. Last monday we went bowling, and that was a ton of fun. we bowled 6 games, and just had a blast together. our whole district was there. Then Tuesday we had to go down to joplin, because a elder in our zone is in a bike area, and he has a bad hip, so he was having problems, so they had an emergency transfer, and we got to go down to help. When i got there the assistants told me that i should be doing some work while they sort the whole thing out, so i went with a elder, and we went biking, and let me tell you i became so grateful for the car, and will never complain that it is a piece of crap ever again. Then on Wednesday we had District meeting. Well Elder Thompson and Elder Whitby had to go down to joplins District meeting, so they took Pittsburgs truck down there. Well as time for our meeting was getting close. we realized that when they took the truck they also took the keys to the church with them. We started calling all the members in pittsburg who would have a key, and no one would answer,  or could give them to us. Finally we had the idea to just go to the public library, and have our meeting in one of the conference rooms there. the meeting went pretty good, and we went on Exchanges that day to. Elder Barton came up from Neosho, and Elder whitby went down there. We had a good time up in Fort Scott. Nothing to crazy happend. Then the week was kinda slow untill Saturday We helped our branch mission leader move. he is an 84 year old man, and his wife died last year, so he wanted to move home with his kids, so we packed him up all day, and he made it to texas at 11 pm that night. that was kinda sad to see him go. then yesterday We had almost a complete remodel of our branch. We got a new relief society president, and a new primary president, and a new Elders quram president, and a new young mens president, and they released our branch mission leader, and we should get a new one next week. Elder whiby aslo had a meeting in Joplin, so i went with Elder Moore in Pittsburg. that actually wasnt to bad untill a few minuites before Elder whitby got back. After he got back the assistance came with him, and came up with us and blitzed our area. Which means two or more sets of missionaries in one area. that went pretty good. Today we are playing flour ball so i wont get to email a lot today. but this next week should be just as crazy as last week. anyway ill let yall go. I love you

This week was a pretty good week. On last monday we went bowling adn it was so much fun. we all had a blast. Then on tuesday we had zone training meeting in Joplin. and that was pretty good. nothing to crazy stood out to me. But we went on exchanges after, and i got Elder Harris up to fort scott with me. He seems pretty cool. He is a big guy. he is 6 foot 7 and 300 lbs. so i guess you could say he is huge. Then on thursday we were playing basketball in the morning and we got a new potential investigator. he is the 6 foot 5 black guy who loves basketball and seems to like us. we play basketball with him almost every morning now, and talk to him a little bit. Then on Sunday we comfirmed julie and kaitlynn The two who got baptised last saturday. I Got to comfirm Julie, and that was a cool experiance. That was really all my week though. LOve you all

November 9, 2015

This week was so crazy, but so much fun. To start of on Tuesday my companion had to be in Bentonville, so i got to go with Elder Moore in Pittsburg. he is something else, and im gonna leave it at that. Then on Wednesday after District meeting i went to Parsons with Elder Jackson. That was a lot of fun. i really like him, and this one member from Parsons. They are so much fun. Then on Thursday night after i got back. We ran out of stuff to do, so we went and played basketball. While we were warming up, some black kids came in and asked if they could play with us. of course we said yes. They were soooooooooo good. they well all crazy fast and could all dunk it. We later found out that almost all of them play for fort scott community college. We tried to talk to some of them about the church, but they were not interested. Then on Friday we met with this guy who is crazy! like he isnt all there. he thinks he is possesed. we gave him a blessing, then he started to talk to us, and he claims that when he was 8 years old some people dropped him off in a desert and he built a rocket and flew into outer space. then at 12 he built a 5 story house by himself. he is so funny, but so crazy. then the highlight of my week was saturday. Julie and Kaytlynn got baptised, and it was so awesome. i got to give a talk on the Holy Ghost. I cant even describe to yall what it was like to see someone that you have been teaching take those steps into baptism. it was so great. anyway that was my week. i love yall

November 2, 2015

This week was a pretty good week i guess. There wasnt a whole lot that went on. We taught our two investigators that are getting baptised this weekend, and that is still going so great. It still blows my mind how ready that are. Then we have two investigators that are progressing, but have a long way to go, well they came to church yesterday, and the guy bore his testimony that he knew this was the right church, so that was really great to. Last week we did have a hard time teaching lessons at night, because the royals were in the world series so no one wanted us over, but it was really funny we were walking down the street, and in all the windows you could see the game on, so that was really funny. on Halloween we stayed in our apartment most of the day, and just played games and stuff, but it didnt feel like halloween. we onlly had one group come trick or treating to our apartment, and they were members, so that was weird, but it was a good time i guess. more candy for me :) Oh and i have been told that the royals won last night. so go kansas right? anyway i love yall
