Hello Hello!

This week was bitter sweet. Our District is on fire right now, I don't take the credit for it either because they are so awesome! We have been working together a lot more and it has really helped us reach our goals. 

One of our Investigators with a Baptismal date can no longer be baptized any time soon, due to some legal issues.. That made me really sad. We still have one with a date though so that is good. 

I am really loving the ward, they are really good to us. Looking forward to the Holidays! We had a missionary volleyball tournament last week and our uniforms were pretty awesome but we got destroyed haha.

Did some awesome service, met some really cool people, and just continuing to do a lot of missionary work! It's been good
Love you guys!

Hey guys! This week was really good. Our District is really awesome and we have been flooding the city and working together and we have seen some awesome success! We hit one of the Zone's highest records in a long time! The work is really solid. 

We had a miracle investigator come to church this Sunday, we were able to set him with a baptismal date, and teach the first lesson with one of the members. His name is Doug, he is a huge blessing! I even predicted that there would be a miracle coming that day because I slipped and fell into a pile of mud right before church started, so I knew I needed to not let that get my spirits down even though I couldn't change clothes haha. 

Sam is still really solid, he also has a date in December! This week we went to the Temple, that is why I am emailing today. It was awesome, don't have a lot of time to email though.
 
Other than that it has been fun, showing Elder Nunn the loops. I am doing better, taking it one day at a time. It is going by so fast!

Hey guys! Elder Nunn flew in on Wednesday and we hit the ground running! Half of our Zone is green so that is interesting. Elder Nunn and I had some awesome lessons this week, we invited 4 to baptism, all said yes and 1 has a date for the 12th of December! I will keep you posted on the other 3 but I think they are pretty solid too! 

Not a lot else has happened. Met a lot of new people this week. Training has been interesting, he is a solid teacher but it is weird and hard transitioning from experienced missionaries to a new one. 

This pic is of us on Mauna Kea. Elder Nunn is the top right. It was a beautiful/expensive sunrise this morning. We had a car accident and the Truck is going to be in the shop again for a while, but this one was not our fault. We are all ok! 
Until next week, love you guys! Alooooooha!

Hey guys! It has definitely been a week full of tests and trials. But it is getting more and more obvious that they must precede the miracles.

One of our members lost our dinner calendar, and I was pretty stressed out about that because it has 2 months worth of names of the people who feed us.. We tried everything but didn't find it until yesterday. It was a huge relief still to find it! 

Also, the time for Elder Whiteley to return home comes this Wednesday, so that has been sad to kill another one, and a couple others I have grown close to are dying as well.. My new companion will actually be a greenie, and his name is Elder Nunn. I'll be straight, I am not excited to train, but of course there is plenty more I need to learn. 

President Warner has also asked that I serve as district leader.. Which I am pretty stressed about doing both but I know the Lord's got me.

Anyways the miracles that happened, we got our calendar back, and we have another really solid investigator who bore his testimony yesterday and pretty much told the ward he wants to be baptized! We have a lesson with him on Thursday! There are a lot of others who are almost as solid, a lot of work to be done with Elder Nunn!

Gonna miss this guy, we've had some good times, some hard, and some really rewarding that I will never forget. May he rest in peace haha
