Week 17


Wow, the weeks are blending together, i can't remember what i have and haven't said in the last email. For an update on my bike, i didn't wreck i crashed, i say that because i could still use my bike. And an update on that is, just because you have a tuning key, doesn't mean that you can tune bikes, i tried adjust my bike to fix it a day or two ago and it looked like a wet spaghetti noodle after i was done with it, it did get fixed all the way later that day.
Last Sunday we had a second Sacrament meeting up in a place called Highgate, it was AWESOME. I hope the Sister missionaries will be able to get the Highgate branch open once more. Everyone needs the sacrament.

This is called a Ludi board.
It is a fun game and I quite enjoy it.

Week 16


Ahh, so much to write, so little time. Hello peoples, i hope that you are all doing well. I have been having a pretty adventurous week. I had my first decent crash this week, my back wheel is no longer centered left to right, but the work out here is totally worth it.

I have ran out of time this week. but I know that the Lord loves us all individually and will send both trials and blessing that we need. I have seen both come my way, even as a missionary, but the progression that we get from it is far greater that what we thought we lost, or what we had to sacrifice.

I hope you all have a great week, i will send more stuff next week.

Week 15

July 11, 2016

I got transfer calls on Saturday morning. Both Elder Palmer and myself are staying in Ochi, and the Ochi Sisters are staying the same as well. As i typed this, i realized that i need to get pictures of all 4 of us together.

This week was pretty good, i have tried out several different mangoes, and fruits that i didnt even know existed. Still loving the work.

As i continue to do this wonderful work, i realize how important it is for us to be out here. This will change not only their life, but their eternity. I am so glad that I am out here. I hope i will be able to do all i can to help bless the lives of those here in Jamaica.

We were also able to meet our new mission President on the Wednesday. President Pearson is awesome. I cant wait to get to know him more.

I know this was short but I gotta go. No baptisms are planned for this week, people have gotten busy cause of the summer.

I wish y'all the best,

Fourth of July in Jamaica


Another glorious week has gone by, unfortunately my companion and i had to spend two days in our house. We both got sick and might have been contagious so we were home bound for two days. I wish we would have been out there. This is the Lord's time and i want to be the best the Lord can make me.

Ragae's baptism has been put on hold for two weeks (i just need to tell you guys when it has happened :) ). Hopefully we will continue letting the work grow and flourish here in Ochi. It is one of my dreams to be able to have a temple built here in Ochi so they can continue growing closer to the Lord.

I wouldn't want to be doing anything else right now. I am so glad to be out here. I wish everyone the best.

Do what is right,
