July 20th letter

Hey guys!  

Holy fetch it has been insanely hot this week here. Yesterday it hit 100 with 85 percent humidity. I seriously have bee looking like Shaq this last week with how much I have been sweating! 

I mowed 7 different lawn this past week. One of the them was a full acre of grass that me and elder W did with two lawn mowers, there has been a serious need for service this past week!

Everyone in our ward is moving out so that has been kind of a bummer. I feel bad for elder W haha because everyone is leaving. This Saturday after we cleaned the church a member of the bishopric took us to lunch and while we were there we started talking to this guy there named J who just bought a house in the area. Anyways we talked to him and offered some help to go over and help him at his new place with mowing his grass and pulling weeds and all that good stuff. Anyways him and his family are super awesome Christian people who really want to come to our church and learn more, so that was super cool! We also stopped by this former investigator family of 5 that were stoked to see us and we are going by there this weeks as well. So overall it was a super good busy week. 

Anyways elder W found out when I get home so the secret is out haha, but its all good! Time is flying by and not going slow at all. 3 weeks till we can all hang out!! Yeah buddy!!!! Its going to be super fun I am looking forward to seeing you guys so much!

 Anyways That's about all that happened this week. By the way I spoke on the book of Mormon last week haha, pretty easy topic right? I had about 30 minutes of material with only a 7 minute timeslot given haha. Anyways that's about all I got for this week! I love you guys!  Have a great week!

Love wes

July 13 letter from Wes

Hey fam!

It was another super hot humid week here in Frederick. We have been walking/biking our butts off this last week. I have dropped 4 pounds since getting to the area and quitting soda again which is nice haha. 

Anyways things are going pretty well. We have an investigator on date to be baptized in August so we are pretty pumped about that. We dropped all our other investigators because of numerous reasons. Elder W still doesn't know I go home August 12th hahaha. People have been doing a pretty good job of not blowing it. 

Things are getting weird though. B emailed me and was telling me that we are speaking on the same day again which is pretty sweet! I am pretty stoked to see you guys and the fam and all of my buddies again. Everyone has been emailing me yesterday and trying to set some stuff up for us to do when I get home. 

So the wedding invitation is from the elders quorum president in Annapolis. He is the man! He is by far one of my favorite members on my mission! He told me he would end an invitation to my house. I don't think I will be able to go, unless you guys want to tour the east coast and the mission? Haha I'm sure there is no way we could swing that. Anyways that's all I got for the week. I love you guys though! Let me know if you find out what my topic to speak on is from bishop ok? By the way I forgot to tell you I spoke in Sacrament yesterday with sister S and the ward mission leader here. It went well. Anyways I LOVE you! Have a great week!

Love wes

July 6, 2015 Letter

What is up family,

Happy late fourth of July! Sounds like your week was pretty packed with stuff that you guys did, I cant believe that you guys didn't go the parade! That is pretty different that the norm! [I was} glad to hear that the family all go together for the fourth …

This week was pretty crazy. It has been raining here on and off for about two weeks now. The temps haven't been too high so that has been pretty nice but the rain is lame especially when we have to walk or bike half the time haha.

On Thursday we had a mini zone conference that was only about 3 hours long where we got to know the Christiansen's so that was pretty cool. They are both super awesome but quite a change from the Richards so it has been a little weird to adjust. They are super sick though and I like them a lot but I miss the Richards a lot too.

That's pretty sweet that you guys will be going to their homecoming this week! You will probably see a ton of my friends from the mission that have gone home. Anyways on Friday our entire zone went to President O of the Frederick stake presidency, and set up all day for the fourth of July party that was on Saturday.

Then on Saturday morning we had to drive to his house to be there at 6:45 to set up some last minute stuff. The party was pretty cool but it rained pretty much the whole time. We were directing traffic for most of the time. When the party was finally done it was super muddy and everyone was parked in a muddy slanted field so we had to push out a ton of cars and everyone got super muddy but I managed to stay pretty clean haha.

The Christiansen's were at the party so I have got to see them more than just about everyone in the mission that's pretty cool. Anyways, The rain cleared out for the night and we enjoyed a pretty sweet fireworks show in downtown Frederick so it was fun.

We were allowed to stay out until 10:30 PM.

I also went to the S’s [family’s house]  for dinner yesterday as you already know and that was pretty funny to figure out that she grew up with you. She was freaking out pretty hard haha.

My companion still doesn't know I’m going home in a few weeks so that's been pretty funny.

Anyways that all I got for this week! I love you guys! Enjoy this week!

Love wes
