Medford - Week 24

Hola Madre!

Another fun week in the mission field.

On Monday we had dinner with the Clantons like always but this time they had some pumpkins to carve.  It was so much fun.  We made some cool pumpkins.  Mine is super funny looking.

Worked at Saint Vinnys a couple days again this week.  Lots of people came to eat so we were super busy!

Went on exchanges this week with one of my ZLs, Elder Harmon.  He is from Utah of course.  Haha.  He's a pretty cool guy.  Went to Ashland for the day.  Cool but weird city.

J. is still progressing and is going to be baptized the 14th of  November.  He is an awesome guy.  D. y F. and their daughter are progressing towards baptism as well.  We also have a lady named V. and her two kids working towards baptism.  The work is progressing and it's really awesome to see people come unto Christ.

Had ZTM this last week.  Zone training meeting.  The Russell's came for this one and taught us a lot of good stuff on how we can be better missionaries.  The Russell's are awesome people!

Halloween didn't feel like Halloween haha.  I felt like a grown up not doing anything haha.  We had to be in our apartment by 6 so we just studied and chilled.

Can't believe it's November already!  My Birthday is coming up.  I'm going to be old haha.  (He turns 20 on November 12th.  He feels old.  How do you think I feel.)

Had a fun service project working on a members roof.  It's just garbage so we had to do some work and then put this huge tarp over the whole thing.  Service is fun!

On Sunday we forgot time went back an hour so we arrived to church an hour early and were wondering where everyone was haha.  We thought church was canceled until we realized the time changed haha.  Good stuff.  (Haha.  Dorks)

The mission is a blast and I'm loving the work.  (Happy Happy)

I love this scripture.

41 But that ye have patience, and bear with those afflictions, with a firm hope that ye shall one day rest from all your afflictions. (Alma 34)

Even though sometimes on our life we feel like we can't press forward we know that God never gives us what we can't handle.  If we trust in him and have patience we can conquer anything.  It's an amazing
promise that one day we can rest from our afflictions.

It's good to hear how everything is going back home.  Sounds extremely crazy like always.

I did pass out the bags of candy.  Everyone that got one were super happy and said thank you.  (I made Halloween bags full of candy and little toys for Kevin to hand out to kids in his Branch)

I'm still taking care of myself.  Trying to stay in shape hahaha.  I have about 15 meds left.  (Just making sure he is taking care of himself and taking his meds.)

Hope you guys have an amazing week!

Love you guys very much!
