My Fam what up!
Well this week was a good one! We traded in our Lawn Mower for a paint brush, so our lawn care business is on hold now. We painted like a bunch of flippin pros over here in Snookivile! We helped out a family this week who is redoing there first floor of there house so we went over and helped them paint a few times this week. Tuesday was a good one, we have a sister missionary in our zone who is going home on Wed SO we came up with the idea of holding a funeral for her for our meeting hahaha! we sent a text to all the missionaries in our zone except her and told them to wear all black, and when they came to the chapel we had a nice sign saying "Sis Houghton's Funeral Service." haha it was awesome. Me and Nilssen looked like the Men in Black. But sexier! :) The rest of the week was filled with lots of service and teaching. Then on Thursday night i got a call from President Taggart and this ginger will be keeping that Ginger jean still here in jersey because i am Training a new Missionary! My due date is Tuesday haha. So im following straight up in Chocolate mans shoes its crazy! But after changing my undies after that phone call i spent the rest of the night finding rides for other missionaries in our zone for the meeting the next day for all who were training. So Friday was just driving all over Jersey and going to the meeting. It was fun, they did ask us the question of what we learned from our trainers. And that was a long time for me so it took me a bit but i came up with 2 things. #1 chocolate taught me how to survive in the hood! ha and #2 was he taught to my needs. So ill be putting that into my son also along with some ginger git r done stuff. So this weekend was basically was painting and saying goodbye to everyone here in Eatontown. Its always sad leaving area's cause you get close to a lot of people but Jesus is always takin the wheel so must move on. But ill fill you all in more next week. love you all! GIT R DONE YEEEHAW!

This week was pretty sweet, and way busy! Monday was swaggy taggy the bishop took us out to Outback steak house with his fam and that was flippin awesome! Tuesday me and Nilssen went over to the Connor's family house and he helped us build a latter ball set for our investigator Henry. But we first had to go find us some free golf balls due to us being broke so we went to the local golf course and found us 20 golf balls in like 10 min haha Get it! But we made the set in like a hour and a half it looked sweet. Then his wife made us some way good dinner! Then the rest of the day was exchange with Elder Nelson a Spanish missionary and we went and ate even more food at some investigators house and they wanted us to bless there home and give the dad a blessing too, it was awesome. Tuesday morning me and spanish Nelson got our swole on, i made his Chi chi's hurt! Chest day! But we had d meeting and then we spent the rest of the day teaching Diana and another member. Then me and Korean got reunited and we went over to a less actives place who has the coolest RV ive ever seen. It straight up has a 50 inch flat screen in there, and thats just 1 of the 3 T.V's. I told them they should drive me home from the mish. ha We might have a deal. Thursday was way cool, i went on exchange to mexico land with the Spanish missionaries. I went with Elder Bell, we had a good time, i spoke me some Spanish and we ate good too. We met a lot of cool people. Then we ended that night with a epic game of B ball with all the hood boys in Pelsues area. Friday afternoon me and Korean were back together for a few hours and we picked up 2 way cool investigators. Then Saturday morning we were back on exchanges, Pelsue went with Nilssen and i went with Pelsue's son Elder Fisher, he is cool. We had a good time walking the streets of the hood.
We taught one guy that would not shut his hole. Me and Fisher literally were doing the head bob of falling asleep. Yesterday was cool we had a lot of investigators come to church. And they enjoyed it cause i had my pockets LOADED with goodies. Me and Pelsue taught the youth and we had a fun time teaching, if they answered our questions we would throw Swedish fish at them. Yeeehaw! That was my week peeps! love you all! GIT R DONE! LET JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL.

This week was so much less of a Jerry Springer show then last week. Monday we had some mini golf going and a red head named Elder ginger Smith took first! ha Tuesday we had our Zone Meeting about Revelation, it went pretty well. After we went and got lunch with the zone and then came home and took a nap cause we were getting cold's. So after our power nap we went over to a members house for dinner and ate some real good Italian food, then ended the night going to the mall because I had to buy me some new pants. Wednesday was cool, we went and helped a members friend move some furniture up to her apartment on the 2nd floor..I was sweating my ginger butt off! Then we went over and checked up on Josephine and then we got this message from some Senior couples in the mission office about a guy that wanted us to stop by. His name was Dominick and his wife Maryum. Dom's brother in law who lives in Utah is a member and Dom and his wife have been going through a hard time, so we went over and Dom invited us right in and started tellin us about him and next thing you know him and his wife invited us to stay for Pork Chops and salad you already know we did. They have been dealing with some drama with their twin boys who are in their teens, so we gave them good advice on dealing with them. I told them about some rebel days and how even though it might seem like the boys don't listen to what they say to them but they do! whoop there it is! ha Thursday was cool, we went over to Emily's house with her friend from Germany and Emily made us Yorkshire pudding from England! That stuff is flipping good! And on top of that she made Nutella cake and custard! We basically went to England for lunch. After that we went and tried a lot of people the bishop wanted us to check up on and then we ended the night with a epic game of Basketball at the church. Friday we had Elder Cowboy Nielson with us, that was fun we went over and saw Coral, it was good seeing her and the fam we havent seen them in forever! Then we had a few more solid Jesus lessons with some less actives and Recent converts. Us 3 teaching together is dangerous! ha But we ended the night at Henry's place with his fam eating some way good food. That family is awesome. Saturday we were suppose to have a BBQ at the church but the weather was bad. So we tried a few people then decided to have a pasta Basketball party at the church and invite everybody and there dog. We had a pretty good amount show up. Henry, Pelsue and other missionaries were there along with some members. It was fun. Ended up getting a little black eye due to going up for a layup and catching a elbow to the face! ha Yesterday we had stake conference, some members came and picked all us missionaries up in there 80's disco van! thing was sweet! they had a car full of donuts for us. ha They were our personal taxi service it was cool. But got to see some members from when I was in Princeton which was cool. And I brought my sour patch supply so I could make it through the 2 hour meeting! ha Then we ended the night with the Fiello family for dinner and that's it people! love you
