I’ve got more time so i’ll send a garbage email.
So this week i was called a snake by our zone leaders. It was for unimportant and jovial reasons but it reminded me of mom calling me satan and it made me smile. I’ve still got my touch.
i got your letter megan! it was super awesome! i wanted to hear how it ended… will you send me another one?
Oh and my companion is very focused but it does add a new dimmension of distraction
when he is so close to home. There is a joke that goes around the mission that happens to a lot of new elders. you wait for a very low flying plane to come by and say “hey elder, how far away do you think that plane is?” and they say something like “i dont know, 10,000 ft.” or something like that. Then you say, “actually its about 30 days away” or 23 1/2 months or something like that. Its a lot of fun. But everyone hears it early so its getting old. i put this in here cause Elder Hafen heard that for the first time ever last week. Ah, it was grand. And now i’m out of time.
Here is my email to recneps (“Spencer” backwards),
Dear spencer Elder Tubbs,
we get to use skype but i dont want to. I’m going to try and call at 4 cali time. Which is 5 utah time. Which is like 7 missouri time. So dont call at night and we’ll be good. I’m glad you are having good time with the Gaukels. You should go ahead and baptize them. Tell them i said so. This week we have been working hard to find new investigators. We didn’t have many when i got here. We were able to find a new guy while tracting named Jason. here a bit of background story. (I have been using the mario theme music for my door knock for about 8 months.) so i knocked out mario’s theme on his door and Jason opened it right up and said “i love that game”. Or something to that effect. He said he opened the door because of the music. So we talked for a good half hour and gave him a book of mormon. we talked about baptism and he said he didn’t know if he’d ever be mormon. but we can change that with Gods help. The best part is he lives right next to a member of the ward council. Its game over for him. The other sweet part of our week was a ward christmas party. We had the spanish branch there as well. it was a lot of fun. We had a gym full of people and food with a lot of fun preformances. And santa came in after the closing prayer. I got a slice of pumpkin pie so all is right with the world.
We have been working with a less active family and the 15 year old son wants to work on geting the preisthood now. So sick! we also had a huge tongan family move into the ward. so their 19 year old son is gonna play rugby with us today. Its gonna be a good day.
Have a great week! Elder Gavarrette probably wont recognize the name. But i bet he’ll see the tie. Those things are rediculosly bright.
so yeah, We are also going to start teaching a guy named Finau, (there are a ton of polys and philipino people here) His wife is a member. We walked up to him and he had a huge cooler full of crab and fish. He might make us some soon. He’s a good guy. This week we are going to have an all mission christmas conference on thrusday. Then doomsday is on friday. (make sure to charge your camera)
Then i’ll email you again next week. Its gonna be fun!
