Week 21

So  I have been struggling lately. I get sad a lot and I think that I still might be struggling with depression. Last week was pretty bad. The work and everything is going great, but I'm not feeling good mentally. I don't know what's wrong but its been really hard the last couple of weeks. That's why I didn't say much last week because I'm trying to be positive, but its hard. I love my mission, but its hard. I knew that it would be. But yesterday and today I just have been really sad and I don't really know why. But I will be fine, so don't worry too much. I will be fine because I know what I'm doing is right and so the Lord will bless me. But no, it hasn't been peachy. Everyone here is great and have been helping me. I love my companion, he is amazing and so are all the others in the apartment. So thats all the depressing stuff, how about some happy stuff? Spencer got baptized on Saturday. It was so amazing - probably the most spiritual experience so far on my mission. And Brooklyn is still good for this week, so that's exciting. I hope that you and dad have a great time in Scotland. I miss you so much, but I know that I need to be here and that what I'm doing is right. I hope that you have a great time picking Forrest up. I love you and miss you so much. Have a great week. Love you and thanks for all you do for me. You always know how I'm feeling - its kind of scary. But I just want you to know that I love you so much and appreciate all you do for me.  Well, thats all I got. Sorry its kind of a depressing email, but this week will be better and we have another baptism, so everything will be great. Love you all.

Week 20

Nice photo

Hey everyone, hows it going? Hope you had a great week. So Spencer's family is active but since he has Down's syndrome  he has not been able to be baptized, but the bishop has given them the ok for him to be baptized. He is 12 I think? or 11. He gets baptized on Saturday and Brooklyn gets baptized next Saturday so I'm so excited. So we did some serivce at the blue grass festival.  We just took tickets and stuff, kind of like  we do at the rodeo. So it was fun. I have some pics I will send you. The  weather has been really good.  It rains a lot though, but I still hate the humidity. But other than that life is great. I can't believe you leave for Scotland in a week - thats nuts. I hope yall have fun. Send me lots of pics. I'm sure you will so I don't have to tell you. But  anyway transfers are tomorrow. I'm staying and so is Elder Hawes and basically the whole district minus Chaz.  He is getting transferred so thats kind of a bummer, but I'm sure I will see him again. Thanks for getting all of those emails and addresses for me I really appreciate them.  Have a great week.

Week 19

So this week was sooooooooooooo amazing! I can't even tell you everything that happened but I will do my best. So we are working with Brooklyn and we taught her like three time this week and invited them to church and they came! It was so exciting, we had three people there yesterday, it was great. Brooklyn has a baptismal date for June 22 so thats really exciting. The formers are going well, we invited them to church but they didnt come, but thats ok. Spencer is still doing well. We were supposed to have a baptism set for next week, but they cancelled so we are going to try to set up another one, but we dont really know yet. We also got in a bash this week. It was so awful. So we knock this guy's door and he answers and is like hey come in. Then he tries to bash with us. It was horrible! We tried to get out, but he kept asking stupid questions, so we answered them, but finally we just bore our testimonies and left. So yeah, I hate bashing! You get nowhere and its not fun. I have had like small bashes, but that was the first full on. He just wanted to bash. but its all right.  Well sounds like the Lewis's had a good trip. Hope you are enjoying the summer. Love you so much! Have a great week.
