Mission XP - 29 June 2015

All we can do anyway is hold to our beliefs and share them with everyone but nothing we do or say will change it. We just need to be patient and while we're being patient we just need to continue following the commandments. It's frustrating, and when we as missionaries talk about prophets, we use the phrase God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow this is just further proving that we are the only true church. I don't recall any prophets even in the bible, for those Catholics, saying oh and by the way - why don't you just marry whoever the heck you want and procreate...oh wait a second you can't bring others to earth and fulfill God's great plan of happiness if your having sex with the same gender...

Anyway people just don't make sense.. But aside from that, my week has been pretty good, we've contacted a few of the referrals we'd gotten our first week together and we got a couple lessons set up for this week which is awesome. We don't really know the people's status we just had a good conversation with them and asked to come back. I'm pretty sure one is a less active and she writes books and screen plays which was pretty cool. Pedro, who is our investigator who is on date, is going to get baptized on the 4th of July if everything goes well. We have a lesson with him on Friday at temple square with him and his girlfriend. She is actually holding him back just a bit but anyway Pedro is awesome and really wants to be baptized so that's what we are excited for.

Mission XP - 22 June 2015 Father's Day weekend (Monday)

Well I broke my pinkie playing football and it was just two hand touch but I ran it into Elder Bridge's shoulder soo...yea sports haha it didn't even hurt when it broke and honestly when the adrenaline wore off I thought that it would be searing pain but it wasn't that bad. The pain definitely happened when the doctor put it back in place like three times...Face with cold sweat..Face with medical mask..Disappointed but relieved faceCrying face..Face with medical mask..Face screaming in fearLoudly crying face..Face with medical mask..Flushed facePouting face

I told dad we had transfers and stuff actually happened but I'm going to write about them and some miracles so yea the teaching pool is growing. We only had like one or two investigators but we have some potential lessons so it's good. We are very excited about that.

    I love you mom have a great week

Mission XP - 15 June 2015

Elder Kremer didn't send a very long email this week because they didn't get out very much. He broke his pinky and the medication he was given caused him to sleep a lot.

Mission XP - 8 June (Kristina's 1 yr. Anniversary)

That looks really nice. It's ok you didn't freak me out. I'd like driving home it would give me more time to sleep haha.
Wow! everything is going by so fast anniversaries and new marriages- dang. Aren't you scared for when I get home? lol jk anyway,
This week, I think the best/most confusing thing that happened was that we started teaching Pedro, who is on date, with the Spanish missionaries. I don't know, I guess he is going to the English ward but wants to learn in Spanish so we're just going with it. It was a great first lesson with him. They were on lesson five and he had a few questions about positions in the church and we made sure he understood that he would be getting a calling so he wouldn't be frightened when he got one and it wouldn't be unsuspecting.
I have just been reading in Mosiah. It's my favorite book especially since there is so much about service in the first few chapters but also every time I read it I just feel something strong.

I love you guys
