Hey mom. My week was good. So there's not much to report till about
Friday. We just did the normal mission thing. Try to find new
investigators teach lessons and so on. (Before I forget there would be
only one investigator you could pray for. Her name is J she's
pretty much our only progressing investigator with a baptism date. She
is married and has 2 kids with one on the way. She works a lot at... because that's really the only place to work consistently
around here. It's hard on her because she's due in October I think so
they cut her hours and they need the money because her husband can't
work because he has bone cancer. She's way into the gospel and has
been talking to her friends and co workers about it. She reads from
the BOM whenever she can but its hard to find time with work and
taking care of her kids and sometimes other coworkers kids. She smokes
and we are going to teach her about the word of wisdom but haven't
been able to meet with her to teach it this week because she's had
work and babysitting but we will probably in our next lesson or the
plan of salvation. So pray for her. Now back to our regularly
scheduled email.) so on Friday nightwe went to talk to one of our
other investigators but they are not able to meet very much and can't
come to church because they pick tomatoes and peppers in the fields so
we have to drop them. Then as we were driving out of their trailer
park the person that owns it stopped us and kicked us out because we
were driving on the grass. Grass grows like a weed here and people
don't even need to plant it they just let it grow so that makes no
sense. And he said you like ruining the road? We have to drive on a
dirt road in the park because that's all it has and sense it rains a
lot it gets muddy and sense we have a truck we like to hit the puddles
but it dosent ruin it. So no sense there either but I think this guy
just dosent want us there and might have been a little drunk because
he said last time we were there he tried to stop us by chasing us with
his lawn mower. So it was kinda funny. Then when we got home we got a
call from Presidant in the truck. I'm like what did I do wrong? He
said he wanted to talk to maxwell and said that he's going to
Murfreesboro to be a zone leader. He got the worst deer in the
headlights look I have ever seen! It was so funny! So transfers is on
Tuesday and I'm going to stay here and get an old man (mission wise)
his name is elder blazzard I think is how you spell it. He is actually
maxwells trainer which is weird. And he has one transfer (6 weeks)
left till he goes home. So he is going to be trunky (getting ready to
be home or focusing on home a lot). So we'll see how that goes. Other
than that it's been a pretty normal week. I hope everything is going
well at home. (You might want to re send those pictures because I
didn't get them. And I can email back and forth still because we're a
white handbook only mission now and it says nothing against that in
it.) love you all.

tribulations are allowed to come into [your life] because of what
[you] are doing right.”-Elder Jörg Klebingat

You know how I got that tick my first couple weeks out? Well it left
an open wound that has healed over but hasn't gone away and it has
itched like crazy and the scab came off and i think it got infected.
