Towson, MD - June 27, 2016

I'm doing good this week we didn't get in too much with people we wanted too, but we had an amazing lesson with an Olympic wrestling coach. He gave us tons of athletic clothes. I probably will come home with just clothes and have to throw away all my church pants.

Elder Parkinson is gone. It's good to have Elder Mcelvany back. Good news is I saved almost all my pictures. Elder Tausaga is sending me a lot over email and stuff.

I'm so excited that the Lancaster Stake is now in my mission. I really want to serve there now. So all the missionaries in Annapolis are getting moved to the DC North Mission so I'll never see them again. Probably my top three favorite elders are leaving Elder Tausaga, Harris, and Sherrett. We all met in inner harbor. Like the whole mission actually to say goodbye and play beach volleyball it was super fun. I'm getting all there emails so I can keep in touch.

One investigator had to push his baptism date back to the 16 of July, and another is doing awesome. We're teaching this member referral from Korea who's really interested and wants to get baptized, I'm pretty sure. This week was cool.

I can't wait to serve in Lancaster.

Towson, MD - June 20, 2016

This week was pretty awesome! We had four investigators at church! One is going to be baptized on the 2nd of July. Another who came to church, I think he will get baptized as well.

I actually had a weird thing happen. Elder Mcelvany got an emergency exchange so another elder came here. The Elder hurt his leg and was in a walking area so he needs a car to help it heal. He's awesome we've really gotten along, but I feel bad for Elder Mcelvany because he missed an awesome week. We taught a ton of people.

It's slowly getting hotter and more humid out here. I'm getting really good at the ukulele, I found a children's hymnbook and I've been learning tons of songs. they're pretty easy!

Towson, MD - June 7, 2016

My week was awesome! We taught a lot of lessons. Made good impressions with a former investigator who wants to start taking lessons again. We met this guy who wants to be baptized again. We just need to help him a little. Then I was really worried to teach an investigator about the word of wisdom, but he took it really well and wants to live it. Then he came to church and had a blast. Bronson Kafusi who played football at BYU and is now playing for the Ravens this year came to church yesterday too.

The news on transfers is Elder Tausaga is getting transferred to a new area. I'm really going to miss him. He's like my best friend, but the good news is one of my favorite elders Elder McKelvany is my new companion and the new sister in my district is one of my best friends from the MTC Sister Hubenthal.

The GPS is working. I'm super glad I have a car. It's so nice. We still have 975 miles this next month which is a huge cut and we had to drive to a far away investigator because we couldn't get a member out so we'll probably have to park our car and bike a little this month.

I love the humidity I'm super weird. I love how hot it's getting. It's still alright weather to be honest. It's like 80 degrees here.

No, I never played code names, sounds fun though. Three of the families out here are crazy about Pandemic.

This area really is so nice. The majority of where we work is in Parkville and Cockeysville.
