I did not get transferred but Elder Parker will be so we are driving down to Broomallfor the transfer meetings. I did get the wallet and with the gift cards it is a really nice wallet and tell her I say thank you. I have facebook but it is for only missionary work so i cannot contact people from home unless given permission from President.
As far as the scripture reading goes... that is the classic reason [I have no time, I get busy, I forget] we hear every time from investigators that we eventually drop. Ask Steve or Mitch haha
I really miss Daisy and Emmy were there pictures taken at California Adventure? If so I would like some haha. We will not get any baptisms this month but we have a date for Mario onbut we could make it on I believe, and hopefully we can have at least one more in March as well.
This week was interesting haha.we had a Birthday bash for Elder Parker & Newbold (who is staying in Hazleton) and we played basketball on some outside courts, it was a warm 40 so it was nice:)
Tuesday we had the soul kitchen again in Hazleton and one of the ladies there brought Elder Newbold a Spanish Boyz ll Men CD i wanted to listen to it so bad but of course i did not and neither did he but it is weird going into stores and hearing music like this morning I heard "Morning" by Maroon 5 and I tried really hard to not listen or watch ESPN which was on in the place as well (a member took us out to lunch). we went on exchanges and i went to Pottsville and we visited someone who was getting baptized to interview her. Turns out... that she was the only one home and we did not have an adult male with us -- which is not allowed -- and the elder i was with just kept doing small talk until I initiated the interview.. she did get baptized though so that was good.
This week we also set up the "Tamaqua Tyranical Titan Wall of Tirade" which totally makes sense grammatically haha. Basically we put up pictures of memories and awesome Star Wars stuff that we did.
I am going to try and start a scripture/hymn/quote of the week and this week is "I Need Thee Every Hour." I love this song it hit me pretty hard in church when singing it, especially the 2nd verse which I believe goes like: "I need thee every hour, stand thou nearby. Temptations lose their power when thou art nigh..." We need to surround ourselves with good things for Satan to not have power over us. I have seen this so much, ever since leaving on my mission Satan has tried so much harder on me, especially mentally but if i sing a hymn or pray it is so much easier to stay away from situations or thoughts that come up.
I love you all and hope you are doing well:)
