July 27, 2015

Yo! Wha'guan y'all!

How is everyone doing this week!? Great I hope haha. This week for elder Lafayette and I Was a little bit better than last week. We did a whole heap of finding because we only have 4 investigators in our area right now. Its kinda funny because up until this area a lot of people were kinda interested and gave  us a chance to share the gospel with them, but in this area not a lot of people want to listen lol. At first it was really hard for me, but the biggest thing that I have learned from being in this area is that all that matters is that you do all that you can do. The lord will take care of the rest and I know he will! Today has also been kinda crazy for us and we had some things pop up but i promise that next weeks letter will be longer and have pictures! until then yall take care!

With love,
Elder Jon Lewis

July 20th 2015 My Week Just Got A Little More Crazy

Well hello to all of you wonderful and magnificent people that I love!

 How are all of you guys doing? Great I hope! So as you all can remember from last week it was a pretty rough one for elder martin and I. We felt like we were working as hard as we could and trying everything to have success but it just wasn't working out that way for us. We sat down talked about it and laughed and just look forward to the up coming week. So as usual Mondays are our pday. This is also the day that we get to relax and slow down as we pleas, but instead of doing that I spent the day packing. And you're probably wondering what was I doing packing? Well everyone I got ET'd or emergency transferred. Yeah I know shocker right!? They moved me because another missionary had to go home or something. So the name of my new area is junction and there is nothing here at all lol. It kinda reminds me of portal lol. So yeah the new area that I am in is really weird, but Im just trying to do the best that I can to go out each and everyday to serve the lord. The work in the area is really slow compared to maypen and I am having a bit of a rough time adjusting to it. Oh and a cool part about junction is that our branch president is blind! He still walks around on his own and knows where everything is. Elder Lafayette and I are basically his councilors so we help with tithing and conducting sacrament meeting and everything. So yeah im just out here trying to work hard. Im not exactly sure how long I will be here in junction, but I do know that I am willing to do what ever the lord asks of me. Until next week yall! take care

With love,
Elder Jon Lewis

But we still tried our best to celebrate independence day here in Jamaica. This week was a really great one for elder martin and I. We had a lot of really great lessons with our investigators this week. In one of the pictures above one of our investigators cousins walked out and was wearing a byu shirt lol. The first one of those I have seen since I have been here. other than that not too much else has gone on here in maypen. It is just hot as usual haha. Sorry I didnt write much this week, but next week will have a whole lot more interesting things to talk about. cant wait to hear from yall next week take care!!!
