Fam and Friends〽️๐Ÿ’ฏ Week #11

Yo,

Well this week has been a little tougher but like the rest I wear it
with a smile๐Ÿ˜Š
We have been doing lots of service, which is pretty sweet. I think
I've been outside more working then I have been teaching. On the plus
side I'm getting a gorgeous tan☀️  The problem is I never get to show
it off cause then I get into a long sleeve shirt and tie so....๐Ÿณ

The other day my comp tried cooking and we were making some salmon and
he cooked it with some habaneros which are just like the second
hottest pepper in the world and he used like 5 of them. ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ. I
couldn't eat it just from it cooking my nose was dripping and I was
coughing so I made me some pancakes๐Ÿ˜

Somethin cool I got to do this week is on Wednesday we took a road
trip to Anchorage and we got to go to the temple which was awesome!!
The Anchorage temple is so crazy sick so be jealous๐Ÿ˜

It's crazy to think that June is already almost over⚡️ time is flying
it's crazy how fast each week comes and goes. So I'm trying to just
enjoy each day as they come and for those you who miss me,  I'm 
not quite so sure who that might be, because my email has still been a little dry๐Ÿ˜‰ hah
jk but for those that do miss me...  I'll be home before we know it.

Craziest thing I did this week is we went to a YSA ward dance and
stole a bunch of food and then my boy DJ Mutini who was the DJ gave me
a shoutout then we bounced๐Ÿ˜‹ it was fun though Ha.

My comp had his one year mark so we went down to the river and burned
his shirt and then we went to red robin for some ice cream but I
caught a look at one of the burgers so of course,  I got the A1 peppercorn
burger๐Ÿ” and it was yummmmm ;)

I'm doing so good and am pumped for whatever experiences are headed my
way Alaska is cooler than Utah and life is good;) and Jesus is my A 1

Love you all so much

Fam and Friends〽️๐Ÿ’ฏ Week #10

My Fam ๐Ÿช

So it's been a other crazy missionary filled week and it's awesome.
Missionary work is fun and can be exciting. Missionary work is what
you make it. The only draw back is that I'm 3,000 miles away from the
people I love, which is really tough. I read this really sweet quote
that said home is where your feet are.๐Ÿก  I'm focused on me right now
and this mission but I still love you all!!

This week we went over to this guys house named GB Jones and he has
finished the Iditarod dog mushing race three times which is crazy. He
showed us all his dogs and some of his animals I put some pictures at
the bottom, but this guy was sweet. He also fed us some fried chicken
so I'm a fan.

I'm callin out everybody who ever told me to dress warm because Alaska
is cold. I'll have you know that the weather has been hot lately and
I'm dyin๐Ÿ’€ the hottest I saw it get was 93 degrees and I took a pic
when it was 91 degrees so I've got proof. But I'll give you a break
cause it's summer cause I'm going to be thankful if I end up in
Fairbanks during the winter cause it averages -50 degrees sooo yea
that would suck๐Ÿ˜

Freak guys just want you to know missionary life is tough and not fun
a lot of times but is by far the most rewarding work that you can do.
Want you all to know that I know this church is true and the reality
of it. It will bless us all. Know I love you people with all my heart.
๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

P.s. I don't think that my email changed or anything, but I don't get
a lot of emails??? Just kidding but seriously hit me up

Fam and Friends〽️๐Ÿ’ฏ Week #9

The people I like,

Well it has been Another awesome week up here in the State of Alaska.
Today is actually my 2 month mark and man it's been crazy fast. I hope
your all jealous except the weather is rain and then shine and then
rain again it's crazy. I love it though and am excited to see winter๐Ÿ˜ฉ
but I know my brothers would love to live up here cause it's sweet so
I'll soak it up for you!๐Ÿ˜

Exciting news, we got Stephanie on date for Baptism. She will be my
first complete baptism from finding her, all the teaching, and all the
way to baptism. Knock on wood for me though because I don't want to
jinx it. I'm teasin she is amazing and already loves the gospel so
much and she truly feels the spirit. So knock on wood or not, I'm not
worried about it:)

One weird fact I learned about Alaskans this week is you don't call it
a snow mobile it's a snow machine and they take pride in it. Plus if
you say snow mobile they know your a fake and you can't pretend to be
an Alaskan. So just in case your ever in that situation I have your
back;)

The work is good here in Wasilla, Elder Frey and I are killin it ✔️ we
go out and knock doors and try to find new people to teach but I swear
everyone is always in the shower so I don't know what to do if you
have any ideas shoot them my way. Yesterday was the last day of my
first transfer. Both me and Elder Frey are staying here in this
awesome valley. ๐Ÿ˜

Funny story, the other night, Elders Frey, White, and Carrol were
chillin after a long day in the apartment and somebody kicked a
dodgeball, long story short it was war. It was fun until I took one in
the face but heck if was wimpin out... So I picked up the ball and
hucked it but I creamed the blinds..... Haha it was awesome.

Just know I freakin love all you so much and want all of you to write
me.... Gets a little lonely out here being roughly 3 thousand miles
away:/ so hit me up๐Ÿ˜œ

No cool pics this week except a couple of crew selfies, but we look
good so here they are๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

As always the best looking Alaskan Missionary you know, also the only
Alaskan missionary you know ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

Fam and Friends〽️๐Ÿ’ฏ Week #8

EVERYONE๐Ÿ˜,

Life is getting better and better, plus it doesn't hurt that I'm in
freakin Alaska. Also my mission I get to do tons of service which is
pretty sweet to get out of the church cloths, but it's also a strange
feeling to slap on a pair of jeans. Never thought I'd say it but I get
pretty comfy in my church cloths.✔️

Well this week marks week 8 on my mission. Which is crazy to even say
I don't even feel like I've been gone for a week, JK that's a lie it
feels like years but in the same sense it has gone fast๐Ÿ˜ the next two
years are going to blow by so fast I'm excited to just do me out here
and enjoy everything this mission has to offer.

Just so you guys know what I do on an average day. I wake up
grudgingly, for anybody who knows me I like to sleep but hey I'm here
to work so.... Anyway after I shower I study from 8:00 am to about
11:00am๐Ÿค“. After that we go do some boss teaching and just try and
talk to people. My biggest thing is trying not to be pushy. For
example the other day we ran into this guy who was in his yard working
on his bike and he started to yap at us and said I'm not interested.
Awkwardly I was like hey I just saw your bike and thought it was
sweet. Then I sat there for like a half hour pretending to know about
bikes and what the heck he was saying, super nice guy though just not
interested which is cool. But yeah that basically sums up my average
day๐Ÿ™Œ

Anyway a really sweet miracle I saw this week is we were teaching this
girl named Stephanie and she's awesome by the way. We asked her to
pray at the end of the lesson and she started crying the spirit was so
strong and when the prayer was over she told us she knew what she was
doing was right that she could feel it from God. Ladies and gentleman
God is real and he is Good.๐Ÿ’‚๐Ÿฟ

Another thing I wanted to say is I want you all to know that I'm a
witness of Christ and know this is his work. I gave up something I
dearly loved for the God I love even more. I'm so excited for what the
lord has prepared for me and glad that I get to share these moments
with all of you. Know that I love you and pray for all of you
daily.⚡️⚡️

Love always you favorite Elder in a shirt and tie๐Ÿ‘”
