went on exchanges with one of the Zone Leaders. I had a pretty good time down
in the Hope Mills area. We had a lot of
teaching appointments. One of them was
for a Recent Convert. A little
background, her father lives with her and is very old and sick. A few weeks ago he went to the hospital and
then came out of the hospital worse. When
we went over he could not move. He could
not sit up in bed. He couldn't do
anything. His daughter, that we were
visiting, has to carry him everywhere. She asked if we could give him a blessing
right when we got there, so we did, and went on with our lesson.
then had another lesson right after this one with a Less-Active a few doors
down. We went to that appointment and as
we were leaving, we got a text from the Recent Convert saying her Dad just got
out of bed and in his wheel chair by himself! That was a huge testimony builder on the Power
of the Priesthood and blessings!
fun and exciting thing that I did, that you will not believe, I ate Sushi. I had it for dinner and it was actually really
good. One of the Recent Converts in the
ward is from the Philippines. She made
us all kinds of sushi, I even ate eel sushi! It was actually pretty good! When we got to their house for dinner and I
heard we were having sushi for dinner, I was like uh oh... Looks like I'm going
hungry tonight . . . But I tried it and
fell in love with it! It was so good!
Rawlings and I are tired of not baptizing so we made a contract with each
other. We had the other elders over as
witnesses when we signed it. I'll send a
picture of it after this.
can't really think of anything else to say.. but that's all! Hope y'all had a great week! Love ya!
Elder Rawlings and Elder Beach
Momma Beach cried when she saw this... they are wearing their matching ties!
(I send each new companionship a matching tie.
I thought it would be a nice way to remember their time together.)
Hurricane? This one didn't even effect us. And they only gets worse from here
on out! We got caught in the rain biking. That was pretty fun. Got pretty
cannot believe everyone that is coming home! Time just flies by! It's going to
be a crazy year next year for returning missionaries, Jentry, Hunter, Steven,
me, James! ** Just in like a few months! It's about time Spencer and Mich got
their papers in! I'm not saying it will happen again, but if one of them got
called here. That would be crazy! Even more crazy if I train them or something! haha.
like a crazy 4th of July Week! I sure miss y'all! Wish I could hang out with
Dex right now! I got the mini care
package. I'm going to have to send back the BYU Vocal Point CD, because it has
"Apostate" songs on there. Really.
I could only listen to "I Stand All
send pictures, but I am actually a pretty good cook! We barely get fed here and so I've been
experimenting with things! Most of them
turn out pretty good! Elder Rawlings is a good cook too!
we found 3 new investigators. Hopefully
they are "solid" most of them that we find just accept a return
appointment to be nice..
all for this week I think... I'll send pictures now **Elder Beach forgot about all the Sister Missionaries from our ward that will be returning in the next few months: Sister Kenedi Ayre, Sister Jenni Forsey, Sister Hana Tautaiolefue and Sister Kimmi Forsey and Rachel Whitmer. Then, coming home the same month as Elder Beach will be Sister Amanda Ayre. Followed by then Sister Emma Driggs. Our Ward is truly blessed to have so many missionaries!
Oh yeah. Had some fun at one of our investigators' garage.
Some Alfredo Broccoli Chicken I cooked up! It was so good!
Training isn't as bad
as I thought it would be. I just still
hate getting up at 6:30 in the morning . Elder Rawlings is a great
missionary! He loves hard work. On Saturday we tracted for 5 hours. That was fun. Met quite some interesting
Almost got mauled by a
pittbull (no such thing as a Nanny Dog). We got chased by
a HUGE Pitt bull , that was pretty crazy! It was comin at me on the bike and so
i kicked it in the head...
We got a referral from
one of our investigators. Her name is P.
She is such a nice lady. She's probably around grandma's age. She is so
ready for the gospel. Her husband died about
a year ago I think, she has all sorts of medical problems and I know the Gospel
will help her!
How did Dex like
Trek? I know I always said I would never
do Trek again, but I totally miss it. It
was such a great experience for me. I wish
I would have taken "spiritual things" a lot more seriously back
home. Oh, well. We learn.
How was Tammy's
baptism? What do you think of her
family? That's exciting the Karlissa
was able to Skype for her baptism! I
don't think President Bernhisel would have allowed that. Because we were in bed by the time she was
baptized. She got baptized at 8PM right?
Uhh, that just about
does it. I heard Chris and Dominiic's wedding went great! We actually stopped by the Schleich's, they
are good friends with Chris and Dom, also members. Sister Schleich took pictures for them . I
was a little bummed about not being able to go, but oh well. I'm already in
a ward where my uncle lives! That still
is crazy to me and other missionaries.
Oh well. We know for sure that I was meant to be here!
That's all for now!
Hope you have a great week! Love ya!
Elder Beach and Elder McHan
