Week 2 in Homer, Alaska!


It's been a crazy week up here in the AK, but it's been a lot of fun.
There's a lot of service to do here in Homer, I think we're in service
clothes almost every day of the week. It's a good work out for sure.
From digging ditches to putting up greenhouses to working in community
thrift stores, there's always something to do. It has certainly been a
lot of fun.

This Tuesday we had perhaps the most ghetto district meeting of all
time. Our district is spread out so we have to use PVC(public video
conference) to have district meetings. Well, our PVC connection was
down, so we had to improvise. We Facetimed one set of elders on Elder
Contreras iPad and the other set on my iPad. The connection was
terrible so people were cutting in and out all the time. Then my iPad
died. So we ended it on the phone. The best part was that President
Robinson was there with us. Fun times.

We've actually been doing a lot of teaching in this area and it's been
really fun. Teaching is good. There are a few progressing
investigators, but I am still trying to get to know everybody, so I'll
update you on all the people later. The people here are awesome
though, they really are. The problem is, most of the people we teach
are willing to listen but they aren't willing to change. So we got to
keep going out and finding more.

This week we also had a zone conference in Soldotna, which is a 170
mile round trip. So we road tripped pretty good this week. It is so
hard to use a conservative amount of miles here. This area is too

Elder Contreras is awesome. He's probably my craziest companion so far
and it's been a lot of fun for the past two weeks. We'll see what the
future holds. Alright everyone, have a good week! Next week I might be
fishing, if I am, that's why I don't email you back.
