December 29, 2014

This week was good we finally got our investigator to come to church. He is so close, I can feel it. We had a 65 degree Christmas. It has been raining all week long. Last night when we were walking around it was so foggy. You see in the movies where everything is white and you can’t see a thing you could see maybe 50ft away. It was crazy. Also we were doing service and we were cutting some dead branches off a tree from the tree and we were goofing off and elder smith threw a stick at the tree it bounced off and hit me in the face so I got a nice lump and a scab on my forehead.

Talking on Christmas

Almost Christmas Dec. 22, 2014

My first transfer went by slow but after that it has flown by. At the end of this transfer I would have been out for 1/4 of my mission already. The work here is very slow. Most of the time we walk around just trying to talk to people. Sometimes it is hard to talk to more than 10 people. One time we talked to ten because we were power walking for 3 hours talking to everyone we saw. Thank you again for the calendar.  I got the taco bell gift card today. This Christmas will be awesome.

December 15, 2014

The weather is really nice here. I was thinking about going out in shorts Christmas morning and taking a picture to send you guys. Christmas will be awesome because there are 4 elders in Pace and we live in the same apartment complex. So Christmas morning we will most likely go and open presents at their house. And I did get your package and the presents in the stocking with the references. I figured out all of them except one.

Pensacola zone

 I'm doing good.  Most of the days we have lots of open space that we just walk around trying to talk to people and see potentials and less actives. I'm excited for half mission conference because this time since it is close to Christmas, we were each given a stalking, a name, and $8 and we are supposes to fill the stocking and give it to that person.
Our investigator didn't come to church but today he is taking us to McGuire's, a famous food place in Pensacola. After that we are going to tour a robotics place that a member of the stake presidency is over. It is going to be so cool.
we will sometimes teach two or three discussions a week. We currently have two investigators and we have a few less actives that we are trying to see. Thank you for the notes and the other stuff in the calender. The subway gift card is at the perfect time because they have an event where you can get a foot long meatball Marmara or cold cut combo for $4.

Nov. 24th and Dec. 1st

 Nov. 24th
so for thanksgiving we only have one dinner planed so after dinner it will be like a normal day. but it has warmed up a little and when we were walking yesterday night it was foggy and my glasses fogged up and it was really creepy. we almost did dodge ball for a zone activity but ended up having a turkey bowl. we are also planing on having a ward turkey bowl on Thursday.

 Dec. 1
So my Thanksgiving was great. To start off we had a turkey bowl and our ward won against the other ward, which is surprising because they had a lot of young marines. We went to a members house for dinner and we had fried turkey and it was so good. After dinner we had a small fire and sat around and talked and had a good time.
One of the other elders, elder smith, was cooking a hamburger on our stove and he tipped it to take it off and spilled some grease on our stove and so we had a fire in our apartment for a minute.
