Hey mom,

Thank you. I love you and its all good no worries,  either way. I am in my new zone the Papigo zone. It’s got rich people ,poor people, the reservation you name it. I’m in the poor area with my new comp who is also the district leader. His name is Elder Pinkston! He is from St Louis, Missouri, he is awesome, we work really well together, he has been out for 8 months and we have gotten along really well in the time we have been together. We like to joke around but when it comes to buisness we get serious. He is a hard worker and everyone seems to like him fairly well. We are in an apartment with two other missionaries who are his boss they are the zone leaders and they are pretty awesome as well. their names are Elder Krueger and Elder Keeler, Kru is from hawaii and Kee is from texas. They are good roommates we have alot of fun and get along great as well. The only missionary from my district in the MTC is Elder Socha , so thats cool. We have some really cool less actives and investigators that we are working with. Larry he is awesome! He got excommunicated but he is working back to rebaptism. He is a recovering hard drug addicted and he just is hilarious and is… well lets just say our family has really prepared me for this mission hahaha. Then there is Andy less active. He has a smoking problem that he is trying to kick. We are going to offer to shop for him so that he won’t buy ciggs or anything like that. Then there is Justin who is an investigator, he just told us he wants to hold off on baptism and that really bummed me out but he is a good guy his wife is a member he just doesn’t feel like he can because he can’t get to church on Sundays and that makes him feel he isn’t worthy even though we got permission to baptize him. But that’s ok he will come around. Then there is Angela and her 4 daughters the 3 olders daughters got baptized and the youngest turns 8 in November. We needed church permission to baptize Angela though and we are waiting on the go ahead but right when we get that she will get baptized like that week. We have met alot of other people that are very interesting. The Warmuth’s they are a less active family and they don’t seem to really want to go to church but we know we have to get them there so we are working on them as much as we can. Then there is Lisa…. she is a card. She is working toward baptism and she is scheduled for next month. She is on house arrest and just lost her job takes alot of pain meds because of back problems and she is loopy as a fruit loop! but she is cool and makes me laugh alot haha. She goes to church pretty regularly. I met David who is an investigator as well, he is a less active Catholic and he doesn’t agree with his church and thinks its corrupt so we are trying to pull a fast flip. We have alot of hopefuls and on new investigator named Christina. We are seeing her next or maybe this week we aren’t sure , but she is readng the BoM and said she is going to have alot of questions for us, so I’m really excited about that! other then that I haven’t met our other investigators I’ve only been here 5 days haha. i love the area I am over. I am over two wards and the ward mission leaders are pretty cool and do alot for us. The Bishop in one ward seems nice I haven’t met the other one but neither ward asked me to bare my testimony and it was even testimony meeting hahaha I thought it was weird! Not like home,  but I love it here the members are awesome and they look out for us if they see us they honk,  some of them give us a ride , some take us to Circle K to get 79 cent drinks. Yea it’s 79 here haha.
It’s been about 110 all week but that’s ok we will live. My stake president is cool , he is really interested in my acting ability hahaha and so is my mission president President Sweeney. He has been president since the first of July so just about as long as me haha but he is awesome he is really big on obedience and why we are here. His wife is very nice and has already taken more care of me then the whole MTC hahaha. President Sweeney is so awesome I’m so glad he is my pres because I think we are really going to get along together. He said because of my acting ability that he will possibly be using me for our missions facebook page commercials and what not, so that would be cool. hahaha I love it here I love the people and I’m having so much fun and I’m learning alot. Cant wait for the coming week.

 

Love ,Elder Call
