The Life.

Monday September 18, 2017

The past week has been pretty crazy. On Tuesday we went and said goodbye to so many people in Bible Park. That was pretty sad, but that's life. We ended having to stay up super late to prepare the area to get 4 missionaries in Bible Park, so that really sucked. 

On Wednesday I got moved in after the long haul across the mission. And this past couple of days we've just been trying to get to know the area and the investigators. Sunday is a crazy day of church for us. Broadlands ward starts and 9am and the McKay Lake ward starts at 11am. So lots of things overlap and so many things are going on at the same time. Both of these wards though are really amazing. They have the most amazing people in it, I'm glad to be able to get to know them. 

That's about how the week has gone.

Leaving the Park

Bible Park (my area) is being swept. I am going to Mckay Lake/Broadlands wards. I'll be with an Elder Turner who has been out for 9 months. Bible Park is getting 4 missionaries sweeping in. Elder Melchin has become a Zone Leader. 

There were lots of changes everywhere, so it'll be an adventure. 

This past week was pretty good. Some highlights are that we were able to teach Richard and Princess the Plan of Salvation, and they both really loved it. They are both going to get baptized in the future. Hopefully this next transfer. 

Gotta go! Peace,

It has been an interesting week. Highlights: Got food poisoning. Saw a firework show. Taught some people. Ate the hottest hotsauce in the world (again). Did my normal missionary thing. Next week is transfers and I hope we both stay, but its been a while since Elder Melchin has moved (6 months). Also Elder Melchin bought a real master sword (pictures next week).

Have a glorious week,
Elder Wheelwright

Live it up

Monday, August 28, 2017

This last week was pretty crazy. There was a lot of stuff going on. Monday was that Mission P-day which turned out to be pretty fun.  Check out "Henry Scott" on facebook. That's President Savage's facebook where he uploads a bunch of photos of us. 

And on Wednesday we had a pretty good Zone Conference. Got to here lots of inspiring words from President Savage. 

One of the Bishop's sons gave his homecoming talk yesterday from serving mandarin speaking montreal canada. He is pretty awesome. We are going to take him to some lessons this week before he goes to byui next week.

We were able to make contact with a couple of investigators that have fallen off the world, so that is good news. 

We have a busy week ahead of us. Especially because we don't have a car anymore... it kind of sucks. A set of sisters in the other district hit a pole with there car, so while their's is in the shop, they took ours. Life goes on.

Total Eclipse of the Sun

Monday - August 21, 2017

Today we got together as the whole mission and played a bunch of games earlier. It was pretty awesome and fun. We all watched the solar eclipse together, and that was pretty crazy. 

Something really awesome happened on Sunday. Chris Grahl got ordained to the office of a priest, and he recieved the Aaronic priesthood. We are so excited for him. It's awesome. He and Ashly have been going through so much in the past month, but they are still going strong despite what he-who-must-not-be-named throws at them.

If you have not read "The power of everyday missionaries" read it. It is straight gold.
If you have not read the Book of Mormon recently, do that as well. FIRE

We went to the temple today. And it was awesome! But we got up at 4am. Nuff said.
This week has been going really well so far. Trying not to get sick from my companion, but he's on the upandup.

Hello there!

Things have been going pretty well here. Not much has happened this past week, but it was good.

Sadly we did find out that Jackie S. is moving this week. It's a bummer and he's sad about it too, but whatever. He'll probably still get baptized in a couple weeks. I'll miss that guy.

Richard came to church again! And Rita the RC (and Richard's roommate) got up and bore her testimony even though her sister passed away last week and her dad is in a coma. She is so amazing.

The past couple days we have had some wondrous weather. Very cool considering the norm of summer here. And today is fantastic; it's a really comfortable cool and its misting. It's such nice Seattle weather.

Anyways that's about it this week! See Ya!

Have a Splendid week,
Elder Wheelwright
