April 27, 2015

HEY!! Everything is going a little better, but not a whole lot of improvement! On the bright side my Spanish is getting a lot better. I am now able to hold a conversation for a long time and as well as teach lessons, so that is going great! 

My Birthday was good. At Zone Conference President Batt and all the missionaries sang to me, it was pretty cool, but weird at the same time! The Palfreymans came over and sang Happy Birthday and brought me cake and at Zone Conference we took 3rd for the cleanest truck!

So something funny this week that happened was when we were filling up our truck with gas on Friday, there was this motor home that was selling any kind of stickers that you can think of.  So we went and just checked it out and there was this old guy who was looking for a certain sticker. He started talking to us and started asking why we thought we could add to the Bible when it clearly states in revelations that you can not add to the Bible.  So I was talking to him and proved his point wrong like 5 times but still didn't listen to me. Then I hear Elder Jensen say," I know that I haven't read the bible and I am going to hell!!!" and yes he yelled that.  So I continue to keep talking to him and then after we were getting ready to leave the guy says "put the book of Mormon down and find the real Jesus" so Elder Jensen then yells "Have a good day sir"  and as soon as we get in the truck he says I messed up and I just went "yep, yes you did. Then yesterday we saw were that guy lived and so Elder Jensen wanted to apologize so he did! That was the fuuny thing this week.

We also had stake conference as well, it was really good! That was really about everything for this week!

Oh and shaving is getting to be a pain so maybe if you can get a chance an electric razor would be awesome but if not that is totally fine! I don't have any new pictures this week but next week!

HEY!! It is going better here. I am getting more comfortable with the language and I am starting to pick up on it a lot faster than I thought that I would!! We actually got a family on date last night and that was way cool. It is for the 30th of May so hopefully they stay on! They pray and read every night and doing everything to be baptized besides church but this week or next they will come! On Thursday I actually have Zone Conference and I wont be able to open them (my presents) one every hour because it lasts from 8:30-4:30 so it is a pretty long training! Haha, but here is a pic of us and some cool cars we were able to see!

April 14

Easton didn't have a lot to say this week.  Just that's it been really busy training his new companion Elder Jensen from Rupert, Idaho.  Here's just a little of what he said this week:

Hey! This week has been really good and i am picking up on the language a lot faster now! Some of our investigators and members have noticed and said I am on my fast track to becoming fluent now, so that is really good to hear! To answer your questions about birthday, really anything, a new watch would be nice and ties but that is all that i can really think of right now haha, Love ya !

I also just got this pic on facebook from Elder Jensen's mom. Easton's first companion as him being the trainer.

April 6, 2015

Hey! So some pretty crazy stuff happened for transfers this week and I am kind of freaking out and super nervous for the next six weeks! I was called to be a District Leader and that is very rare for some one to be less then seven months out and be one so that is crazy.  The craziest thing is I am also training a new Spanish elder who is as white as me and from Idaho who doesn't speak ANY Spanish so that is going to be a trial in its self!! so I am not so sure what to do right now!!  

This past weekend was fantastic and yes I tried to concentrate on conference but it was hard after getting that news haha!! But I loved conference and it made the weekend fly by so that is good and it did keep me distracted from it! But just barely. I had a prayer answered by Kenzie Gardner! I am kind of freaking out about training and district leader and then I read her email and this is what it said,
   Easton Richy how the heck are you?? I saw your mom today and it made me think of ya! I hope you're doing well. I know you're kicking butt out there. I'm positive that you're the best missionary New Mexico has ever seen! I'm leaving may 27 for Alabama! I'm excited to serve but also pretty scared. I hope I'm making the right decision! I'm sure it's going to be great!
Anyway, I just thought I'd send a quick hello and see how things are going.
This is my fav scripture and I thought you might like it too!
"Fear thou not, for I am with thee; be not dismayed, for I am thy God; yea I will strengthen thee; yea I will help thee; yea I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."
Isaiah 41:10

So this scripture helped me and I am very grateful how the Lord works and it is crazy!!

My new companion's name is Elder Jensen.  Oh and I need to get some boots. We are doing a lot of service here in Bloomfield.  Nothing to picture worthy this week, but I promise next week!
