This is the only thing I got from Elder Harsh this week. I totally forgot to write him! I have never done that! Ever!!! I felt so bad, but then I just laughed at his response. So I had to draw from Keven’s and Josilyn’s letter for this week’s report!
Hey remember you have a kid on a mission......out here.....lonely........with an empty inbox........missing you.........
From Keven's letter:
The Chacon Family is doing good but we are adjusting their baptism date. We had it for this Saturday but they aren't ready yet, but they are progressing very well! They accepted the Word of Wisdom like it was nothing and threw out all the alcohol from their fridge and haven't drank any coffee since! The mom stopped taking care of children on Sundays so she will be able to come to church and the dad is looking for another guy to help him in his carpenter shop for the same reason! They aren't ready but they are preparing very well! Did mom forget about me? or is she just mad because I wrote on Tuesday a few weeks in a row. Haha!
Aruba is great! I told President I want to finish my mission in Aruba and he said probably not. Well he actually said "I am not in control of that" which means "no" so bummer so I am probs going to Curacao or something which I am alright with I guess, but Aruba is by far my favorite island.
Mom forgot about me this week so that’s cool. #StillFavoriteChild
From Josilyn's letter:Wow the one week that you write me my mom decides to forget about me! At least I still get to say hi mom this week. Hi mom!
Looking back on my mission is weird. Thinking back to when I was in the DR feels like forever and a half ago, but when I was in Bonaire (first area in the islands) feels like last week! I really feel like I have put my whole self into these Islands!! Like really every area I have been to, I have had to start at 0 either because I whitewashed, opened up a new area, or saved it from a bad missionary who wasn't working. It has been so tough starting new every transfer like that and not really seeing much success as far as baptisms go, but as a zone leader I see all the numbers of the missionaries and I see all the areas that I opened and saved and I see them flourishing and teaching tons of people and baptizing and it honestly makes me feel so good. Even if I can't be there to see the products I know that I was there to plow the ground and plant the seeds and it’s a really great thing to see. I love these islands.
So even if his Mother forgot to write- he sounds like he is doing great!
Thanks for everyone’s support!
