Yeah so Elder Reynolds is gone! haha he went home yesterday. So it's me and Elder Blair again for a few days then we pick up our new companion, Elder Jensen tommorow. I don't think Elder Jensen's been out very long cause no one knows who he is haha. But that's cool. So I'm staying in new kent! haha it's my longest area now! And my longest companion! so we are rocking it. haha. I'm not gonna lie, this is a tough area. We tract all the time and nothing seems to happen...but I know if we are doing our best it doesn't matter. So yes.
Oh gosh I got bit by a tick this week! First time ever! haha. Oh and that whole "use the head of a burned out match" thing is false. haha. Apparently it's actually very dangerous cause the tick will spit everything back into you if you do that and it can give you lyme disease! bad news bears.
Yeah so it was fun elder reynolds parents showed up on sunday...which is was interesting since he still had two days left X_x. But yeah that was interesting! haha.
oh man...so this last week I went on exchanges with my zone leaders and they work with the young single adults in our zone and so we went to this college campus call william and mary (williamsburg) and tried to talk with students. That campus is actually way awesome cause its right basically in colonial williamsburg. So I got to see that. BUt heres the interesting part. Apparently every year willaim and mary has this tradition called "blow out day" where everyone gets super drunk from like 5 am and just drinks all day long. And hollllly cow. There was not a single sober person on that campus. And there were TONS of people. I don't know how they get away with it but yeah. It was ridiculous haha. Crazy crazy students there. Like as we were talking to thsi guy I saw a girl so drunk that her friend had to drag her off a table and sit her down somewhere else. So glad I'm not an alchoholic. haha.
That's awesome that ryan is doing good! I loved the pictures. Definitely keep going ryan! I am way proud of ya!
So No prob on the short email gives me time to send oyu more pictures! haha. But yeah, so I'll call you at 6 pm my time, which is 3 pm your time. ok? I'll call the house so be prepared for that! my area code is 804 so if you see that number, answer! haha.
Thank you for sharing that missionary thing with me. We do soemthing similiar called the member lesson series. What it is is we get a list of 10 families from the bishop and we set up this with each family so that we come by 1 a week for four weeks and share a short 20 minutes lesson. We encourage them to bring a non member friend for it, but it's not like, required. It's good because it's direct towards the member and not the investigator, so it's a really non-threatening environment for them to just listen and see what's going on. It's great.
But I'll cut it short too! I'll call ya on sunday! 6 pm EST! 3 pm PST! Don't be late!
haha love ya!
