June 1 Trip to the Boston Temple!

So its been over a week since i have been able to email you and i have so many pictures to send, hopefully you can get something out of this email besides all the pictures that i am going to send. 

I found out that my trainee, Elder Dylan Sholer, from Battle Ground Washington went home on Saturday. I dont know the reasons but i hope he can come back out sometime in the future. 

This past memorial day, we helped Noah Hughes (Tall 14 year old) with his EAGLE SCOUT Project. what we did was go to the local cemetery and replaced name plaques that were put on the trees. there was a lot of hand drills and reaching to new heights that was associated with this project. While there Elder Wadsworth and I bumped into a group of 5 hobos that were proud of us for doing something positive in the world. I took out 5 pictures of Jesus and gave them each one and they were so happy. Despite having beer cans and cigarettes all around them, i thought the pictures of Jesus would lift their spirits up. 

One of our investigators named Saikou Bah just moved into live with the Hughes Family. He is 17 years old and is a junior in High School. He plays football and track and just got 2nd in the state of New hampshire for the 100Meter dash. He reminds me of Usane Bolt, except he is buffer than him. 

I am so happy that it is hot in New England now. This past winter was SO BAD. Apparently this winter was the worst one they have had in decades.... So that just makes the sunshine and heat that much more appealing to me. The heat here is different than in California though. It rains a lot here and so when you have heat+ water it creates humidity. I am not a huge fan of humidity but i would choose that over snow and cold anyday. 

Our transfer calls just came and i will be staying in this Bedford area for another 6 weeks. and i will stay as Zone leader and get a new companion tomorrow. So wish me luck!!! 

We now officially have iPads in our mission. we are still just using them as tools for videos and studying and another resource. We should be (this transfer)  using them to start updating our area book (where we keep information on the people we teach) and to do daily planning. I'm getting used to having an iPad now, they are really good tools. 

As for the missionary work in the area. We have been helping a lot of people out in their personal trials. Examples: someone unexpectedly dies, evicted from their house, court cases going bad. We have been doing a lot of what this scripture explains. 

Mosiah 18:9
Yea, and are willing to mourn with those that mourn; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places that ye may be in, even until death, that ye may be redeemed of God, and be numbered with those of the first resurrection, that ye may have eternal life—

 We have been doing alot of that, as well as serving them. Doing their dishes, or helping set up their Air conditioning unit. taking out the trash. All the little things that take no time at all. 

Thats all i got for this week. Enjoy all the pictures!!!!
