Mission Field: Week 28

25 November 2013

Well, this week in the Life of Elder Stratton...

  We walked and talked and then did it over again!  ha-ha  It’s a great life!

  In other news, we are starting a prep thing, so what happened in the Philippines doesn’t happen here, so that should be fun!

  We taught lots.  We are working lots with less actives right now and I hope we get the benefits of it in, the next few weeks and stuff.  But I’m ready for some batizmos, because it has been a long time and I don’t like not baptizing, so yaw.

  Yulp, that’s my life.  Oh, and any questions can be sent to me at this email address.:)  

  Ha-ha,  Oh and it’s turkey day this week!!  So eat something for me.  

  I have 1 month till I can talk to you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mission Field: Week 27

18 November 2013


  Ha-ha  Well life is great here and I’m having a blast still.

  I had some great things happen this week and I hope to see the fruits of them in 2 weeks.  We met some amazing people this week and are starting to teach them and they look like they will be great!!

  So they had the carnival party yesterday...ha-ha Let’s just say we went home early, but the sad part is it is only the first of lots of them.  It’s going to be interesting the next 3 months with lots of parties and stuff.  

Well Aritdson wasn’t baptized, because he drank some coffee, so we are doing it this week, but man he is a boss.  So cool and he asks so many questions.  He is so good!!  And that’s about all that happened this week

  We are going to be working a lot more with inactive members now though and the ward is fully behind us to help, so it’s pretty cool!

  Well I love you all and have a great week!!!

Mission Field: Week 26

11 November 2013

Whelp this week was crazy!

  So, we started the week off really nice.  We were working good, getting lots of lessons and new investigators and such and then, the last 2 days happened.

  So first thing, I had the best clam in the world yesterday.  So good and tender and everything and no sand.  Yaw it was good.

  Then on Saturday, we went to a less actives b-day party, ha-ha, man is was so cool, I will have to show you all what they do when I’m back, but we had fun and got some work done.

  Then yesterday night, we were sitting on a curb teaching and some drunk guy comes and starts talking to us and we are like ‘hey voce precisa a sair agora’ (‘you need to leave now’) and he looked at me and said ‘I want to fight you’ in English.  Ha ha-ha  We are like ‘WHAT????’  ha-ha and he took a step for me and some guy on the street came, picked him up and said ‘Dont touch Elders!’.  Ha-ha, it was sooooo funny, but, then we were still there talking a little latter and another drunk dude comes and is like ‘I want to sing to you’ and we are like ‘OK!  So he started and he was sooooo bad!
Ha-ha We sat there laughing at him and he laughed to.  But he was so loud and we are right next to an open window.  The owner comes out and says ‘Cala Boca’ (Shut Up), to him.  The drunk guy stops and just starts swearing in English at him and we are like, "Is this happening right now"??  But, yaw, funny stuff.

  We had some weird things happen this week and some really cool stuff happen too, but that’s for another time.  Hope all is well for you guys and you’re doing good.

Well, have a good week!! 

Love Elder Stratton

Mission Field: Week 25

4 Nov 2013

Well Hello Again family!!

  Well, this week has been really good and I’ve gotten to realize lots of things.

  First, if we obey rules we are blessed.

  Second, do what we are told to do.  Man, so we took over an area and the Elders didn’t do their Area Book, so I spent lots of time this last week walking, trying to find people. Ha-ha it’s hard. But, we had lots of fun!

  Third, I have the best family in the world.  Ha-ha, it’s so nice to know I have you all behind me!  I can show a picture of us all and people here get really excited and want to hear all about you, it’s really cool, and I love it!  But, when things aren’t going well here, I still love it and I’m learning sooo much!

  If anyone is even thinking about a mission I have 2 words. DO IT.  It will change your life for the better and things you can’t even dream of will happen in your life.  

Well I love you all and I hope and pray for the best for you all.  Thank you for all you have done for me and you are all so great!

Love, Elder Stratton
