Hey Everyone!

This week was great! We did a lot of teaching and a lot of service and
the usual mission stuff. Not to sound boring or anything. Cuz it's
been a blast! Missions are the best.

Today is kinda crazy because President Francis' farewell is today.
It's been crazy and there has been a lot of things going on. So I will
have to keep this email pretty short. Sorry for that.

This week we saw a lot of cool things happen. The Lord directed us to
do some really cool things this week. One day we were planning on
going to a town called East Aurora to do some service for one of our
investigators. For some reason before we left, I felt like we needed
to bring our white shirts and ties. So we went in our service clothes
and brought our proselyting clothes. When we pulled in to East Aurora,
we saw tons of people walking around! It was totally unexpected. So,
we changed real quick and hopped out and talked to a bunch of people.
It was sweet. We just had a hunch that we should bring our white shirt
and ties and it the Lord blessed us for doing so. It was sweet.

We are working hard and trying to find people to teach. Hopefully we
will find someone soon. Keep us in your prayers! Love you all! Have a
great week. Talk to you soon.

I'm down with OP (Orchard Park)..yeah, you know me! Ha ha!!

Hey You Guys!

How was your week? Mine was great! We were real busy. We had a lot of
cool experiences this week.

I had the opportunity to go on exchanges twice this week (where we
switch companions for the day). Once on Tuesday with Elder Marks who
is in my district and once on Saturday with Elder Hunt (one of the
zone leaders). Tuesday was a fun exchange (Saturday was too, I just
gotta tell you about the Tuesday one first). We worked in a city in my
area called East Aurora. It's a really nice town and has a cool
downtown. One time during the day, we were walking and talking to
people when a random lady walked up to us and said, "I've been to
Nauvoo! I would love to donate to the missionaries. Go buy yourself
some lunch." She handed us some money while we were talking to another
lady. When we finished talking to her, we looked down at the money and
it was a 100 dollar bill! We tried really hard to find the lady but
she disappeared. We ended up putting it in the missionary fund instead
of spending it. (As tempting as it was haha) we had a great day and
worked hard.
On Saturday, I went on an exchange with Elder Hunt from Auburn,
Washington! Yeah I said Auburn! He went to Auburn Mountainview High
School! It was cool cuz we got to talk about home and stuff. We
actually knew a lot of the same people from home! It was so cool.

We got transfer calls today. Our district is staying the same! I love
this district! I'm excited to work another transfer with them. But
guess what. Elder Rushton (my first companion, my trainer) is coming
to be our zone leader! Super cool! That means I will get to see him
before he goes home! (Which is in 6 weeks)

Anyways, the work here is going well and we are finding more and more
people to teach. It's been such a blessing to see the Lords hand in my
life each and every day. I love this gospel and the peace and
happiness that comes from it. I love you all have a great week. Talk
to you next week.

Hello Everyone!

This week was great. Every week is great as a missionary.

We were really busy this week. We did all of the regular missionary
stuff. Tracting, street contacting, visiting less actives, etc. it was
great. I am loving every minute of it.

This week we also got to do some service as well. We served at a cool
park called Birchfield. We took out a lot of daffodils and weeds. Our
district is growing stronger and stronger unity it's awesome. But some
of us might get transferred next week. It's too bad. Also, we had some
service for the city where we cleaned out the back side of an
abandoned house. I guess the guy was a hoarder before he passed away
so the whole back yard was covered in piles of rotted wood and weeds
and trash. We took it all out and took it to the curb.

Sorry for the short email today, we played basketball and dodgeball
with the young men in the ward and you know how it is. I got a little
distracted haha.

Anyways, thank you for all the prayers and love and support. I wanted
to give a shoutout to the seniors who just graduated. I'm proud of you
guys! Keep up the good work! Love you all! You guys are the best. Have
a great work!

Much Love

Hey You Guys!

How was your week? I hope you had a good one! I miss you all!

Sorry I didn't send an email last week...I went to send it and i
accidentally deleted it.

This week was awesome! We taught a lot of people and found a couple
new people to teach! It's awesome to see the Lords hand in our lives
every day. Because He truly does bless us everyday.

We had zone meeting this week. The zone leaders have implemented a
plan that will "raise the bar" for our missionary work this month.
It'll be good because we are getting a new mission president in July!
Their plan is called June Jubilee. All the districts are kinda
competing to "raise the bar" as a zone. It's great. My district is
doing well. We are rocking.

We taught a lot this week! It's been great. We really are working
hard. The Lord is blessing us for our efforts. We were street
contacting one night when we saw a little old lady in her lawn trying
to trim her bushes. We crossed the street and asked if she needed any
help. She told us no thank you and we continued to talk to her. She
thought it was cool that we offer service and that we want to help the
community. "So, if I break my leg, I can call you and you would come
and take my trash out to the curb?" We said of course! She was touched
by that. Then, she asked us what we knew about the election. We told
her that we don't know much because we are missionaries and we don't
watch tv or listen to the radio (which is fine by me) to keep our
minds focused on the work. Then, she got mad at us! She told us to
leave! Then, I tried to say everything that I had heard through the
grape vine about the election and then she was nicer haha. That was
pretty funny though haha. She was messing with us. Elder Fielding got
kinda sad and scared when she started telling us all that stuff haha.
It was fun.

This week we have been doing a Book of Mormon challenge. President
Francis came to our zone two weeks ago for zone conference. He started
the challenge then. Basically, we read around 15 pages a day and we
will finish in 34 days! We have a reading schedule and we are all
reading together it's super sweet! I'm loving it. THE BOOK OF MORMON

Anyways, thanks for all that you do, you guys. You're the best. Thanks
for your prayers and your love and your support. Have a great week! I
love you all!
