🔥🔥 Week 15

Hello 💛 :p

This week has been kinda normal but that's good eh. It's starting to
get a little darker at nights but mostly because it's been super
cloudy cause it has been raining like everyday this week. So it's
kinda cool to be able to sleep in Almost darkness, but the winter will
be here soon enough and I'm kinda nervous😬 the darkness is going to
be weird and I hope my body and mind handle it well. They say it hits
people differently! All I know is I'm going to stock up on my vitamin
D3 and chill in front of what they call a "happy light". For now I'm
going to just enjoy summer and fall cause I still have a little bit
So I'm gonna soak up the sun and tell everyone🎤  because I don't want
to regret it haha😝

Well we got transfers call this week and I'm staying in Wasilla and
Elder Frey is actually flying out to Juneau to be a zone leader so He
got it good and he knows it he keeps talking about it but I'm happy for
him he deserves this,  he was an awesome trainer💪.   With my area though 
we are losing memory lake ward and are actually getting sisters in our
district so I won't be covering two wards anymore but hey we're
getting sisters that'll be fun☺️ I haven't served with sisters since I
was at the MTC my zone was the only ones without them.

Some good news I'm finally a legal driver in the state of Alaska. I
got my Alaska State Drivers License and it looks sweet I'll send a pic
of it. I feel all legit now haha jk I hate the pic but I guess
everybody hates the drivers license photo so I'm in the in crowd now;)

On another note I am finally getting to go fishing today and I'm so
freakin pumped it's going to be sweet. Hopefully I'll catch a sick
monster fish..  but probs not so wish me luck. Our recent convert Stephanie, 
 is taking us to the Eklutna Tail Race. Right now the King Salmon are running
 and so are the Silvers so we will see. Just last week a member in our ward
caught a 45 pound king salmon so I guess I'll give it a run but I'm so
excited it's going to be sick. I'll take some sweet pics hopefully one
with my monster hah 🎣

Anyway the weeks seem to be cruisin and I'm so in love with Alaska
this is the sweetest mission in the world and the Lord Jesus Christ
really Hooked me up. I love this work and just getting to get to know
people and really just to learn.  It's crazy and it's tough but I love it
and I love you guys too :p

Love your favorite white boy in Alaska👦🏻

Hi☺️ Week #14

Hello people 

 Well this week has been real. I miss you guys all so
much and it's crazy to think I don't get to see your faces for 2
years😶. I love you all so much, but life is good out here and I'm
trying to focus on that.

We had our baptism this Saturday and it was awesome. Her name is
Stephanie and she is so ready for the gospel. She's been a miracle to
me it's cool to see something so good come from all the struggle and
all the hard times. It really shows me why I'm out here and how I can
help people. All I know is God is real and he is good⚡️⚡️

This week we went up to Talkeetna and did some service so that was
cool,  it was for a family that lives in the  boonies with no running water 
and no electricity!!  They are super nice just that it was really strange. It would be so hard 
to live without some of the things I have taken for granted!!  But it was kind
of fun so ya.. that was cool!!

Well I miss you guys have a good week and continue to be the cool people you are

Family over Everything🚀 Week #13


Well it's been another sweet week up here in Alaska. Missionary work
is good we have been doing lots of searching to try and get new
investigators.  As of right now we still have Stephanie on date for
this coming Saturday and it'll be so awesome to be apart of her
baptism. She loves us to death but what can I say I guess it's the
Greenie Fire!!!🔥🔥

We tracted and ran into this really cool guy named Bob Velock this dude is a
boss. We told him we did service and he told us we knocked on the
right door. He pulled us inside and showed us everything he needed
done. Then he showed us all of his toys. He has a boss hoss bike that
almost has 500 horsepower then a Harley and he has a legit rich car
and lots of other stuff he wanted us to take it for a ride but of
course we couldn't cause we're missionaries but we still got on them
and started them up it was so fun. By far the coolest guy I've met on
my mission.

Crazy how quickly time is flying! This week already marks my third
month out on my mission. Three months that's insane even though
sometimes it feels like years since I've seen any of you man but life
will be good in a couple of years. I'm just trying to do me and enjoy
it. I love my mission it doesn't get better than Alaska.

The other day we're  getting home late from a lesson and it was
like 10:20 pm and while I was driving  home the sun was in my eyes.
Haha crazy☺️

Love you all have a good week😘😘

Hakuna matata🐗🐺🦁 Week #12

It means no worries......

Freak everybody this week has been chill. I love the missionaries I
serve around they are men of God. Man, I  can't tell you how much Alaska
has grown on me,  I love it!  At the same time I still miss all of you
like cray🙆

Another thing we've been doing we have been going to McDonald's to
often but members keep paying for us so that's sweet. Haha  but Elder
Elliot wants to stop because he's got almost to 6 months to get sexy (he's goes
home in 6 months)💪 haha That's not going to stop me though McDonald's is my

We went to the park to talk to people and we ended up playing a kid in
basketball and we won so we we told him that we get to teach him but
hah he wasn't interested but it was still a lot of fun. Missionary
work at its finest🏀

Other than that we have been doing a lot of finding and knocking doors
trying to find just one person to talk to hah even if it's just to
talk about their favorite type of lunch meat at this point but people
are pretty stubborn up her so I don't know.

We still have Stephanie on lock for the 16th so that'll be sweet to
finally get her baptized I'm so excited for her.

I want to give a shout out to my boy Elder Jacobson  for getting on his
mission to New Hampshire my man!! Also to my number one homie and bro
Davi love you man keep being the man God wants you to be!!!

Freakin miss you and love all you peeps keep being awesome have a
blessed week 😈😈

Signing off live from Wasilla Alaska😝😝
