Storms of Weather and Testimonies....

well something different happened. Thursday there was a big storm that came through here so president called and told everyone to stay inside during the afternoon and to cancel all appointments so we did that and nothing happened… until the next day.  But our dinner appointment still brought us over a ton of food!  Haha  The next day all the schools were canceled, jobs canceled and our zone meeting was just delayed for like 3 hours but it all cleared out.

It was a slower week, but we still somehow stayed busy. hahha i got my game still mom, no doubt about that, never lost it so no worries ;)
yeah we heard about the packers winning, I saw one play of it at a members house but I’m glad Packers won.  Did you see Korey Hall at all? keep sending matts emails, i like them.

we didn’t meet with the family we have been teaching cause some things came up but they did let us know how they didn’t like "open mike" Sunday hahha they didn’t like all the crying and all that nonsense it brings but they are still excited about everything which is good :):)

oh we had stake conference yesterday and it was a broadcast from slc, it was pretty good, well have a great week mom, i love you all, oh yeah ill probly be with elder martin for anothre 2 weeks cause he has been in this area for about 6 months so he will probably be leaving this transfer, i gotta go, i love you mom and dad, and family, have a great week,
love elder schofield

What About The Missionaries...??

The funniest thing happened in Primary Sunday.  Kenyon Gillins was in class and a little girl gave the prayer.  After it ended, Kenyon looked at her and said, “What about the missionaries?  You didn’t bless the missionaries!  You need to bless the missionaries!  Brian is a missionary and I love Brian!  We need to bless the missionaries!”  All this from a darling 4 year old….  J

Finding Families! (and other interesting stuff!)

hello :)

this week was good again. we have two families we are teaching now and one family has been coming to church.  this one is solid-their names are the Cambells, they are in their 40s. really cool family.  but we have them and another family, (the schultzs) and we met another guy last night, we actually had dinner with a part member family and the husband is the one.   this week was great, i dont know if i told you but the week of Christmas we had a fast for families to teach, i suppose its working hahaha :)

so you remember frank? the one that was going to be baptized and dumped us on the phone? comes to find out he is like one of the head people in the drug trafficking and drug cartel in Mexico!  he was trying to get out of it during the time we were teaching him but 2 of his really good friends got shot down there and thats what made him not want to be baptized, he felt it was his responsibility to pick up where his friends left off, pretty stupid i know but his ex girlfriend says he is on the run cause he is illegal and they have been looking for him for a while, when his girlfriend told us all of this i was like "holy crap, we were teaching an illegal immigrant and drug lord!!!!"" kinda cool experience i suppose lol, but he was like really really nice too, i guess thats how business ppl need to be whether they are really business ppl or drug lords haha, they need to have good "PR" but yeah haha

i bet landon and emily are relieved now that the kids are gone, best kind of birth control right there haha, have them babysit. good to hear that the farewell went well :) im glad brady and dad were able to stay sane and see a basketball game haha firth is gunna win it again 5-peat

Interviews with president went well, and everything else is going well, by next week we should have 2 baptism dates set but its all going good here, tell everyone hi for me. i love you all
love elder schofield
