Mission Life

Hello everybody!! Hope that you are all doing well! This past week has been crazy with traveling. Well this whole month has been crazy with traveling. My companion and I have been installing large 4x8 whiteboard in every missionary’s apartment. Which we have about 80 apartments. So we are now half way finished with installing. We just have the west of Kansas to do then we will have most of the apartments finished. But that will require a lot of driving so I am hoping to put that off for a little while. Last week we stopped in Wellington which is one of my old areas where I have served. I had the chance to go and see one of my friends there. His name is Billy. I really wish that I had the time to go see the Stark family while I was there. But there was no time to do that. We had to be home in time for curfew. We finally received the assistant’s new truck last week. It is a 2015 Chevy Silverado. It is pretty nice. The church use to put on a few extra options but they are stock base vehicles. Which is good so the church saves money. Our Branch Presidents son had his mission farewell yesterday. He is going to Brazil Compinas. The same place that Gary went to. So one of their family friends is from the Mormon Tabernacle choir. So we got to sit and chat with him a little at dinner. Our Branch President is hosting a special FHE tonight and “George” will be the guest speaker. He is one of the only African American singers in the Tabernacle choir. So I am excited for tonight! I hope that all of you have a great week!
