MISSION FIELD: Week 97 Hello!!!! Good Day!

                                                           23 Mar 2015

Dear Family,

   This last week was good!!!  So on Monday, I got to go and pick up my new comp and see him.  It was cool!  He is excited to be here and to work for the Lord!!

   Then, we went to Assomada on Tuesday, for a leadership meeting and it was good, but kinda dumb, 'cause the people in charge didn't have a clue what was going on.  So nobody had fun.  But, it's was good, 'cause I got to talk to my comp for a while in the car ride.  He is speaking Portuguese and learning fast.  He's pretty cool!

   And then on Wednesday, we went to Praia for another training that was super good and we had fun talking to people and seeing the new missionaries!!!  

   Then, on Saturday we had a baptism!!!  It was super good!  And this next week we are preparing 2 other people and they are doing great!!!  

    But that was our week and we are having a great time!!!!

love Elder Stratton!

MISSION FIELD: Week 96 Last Transfer!

                                                               16 Mar 2015

   Well, if you don't already know, I will be home in 6 weeks.  Yes, I know it's sad.... 

   But here is mission life right now...

   So, yesterday was transfers, so, I got a call that said I was going to be training and I was like, 'Cool!'  Then, they told me it was going to be an Elder from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and I was like, 'Wow, even cooler!'  THEN, they said he only speaks French...... Well that's a little strange, but cool still.  Overall, I have a 'boss comp' and he is cool!!  I'm super lucky and happy, that I have this chance and even better, that we are going to have a great time together!!  This will be a great transfer!!

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

love Elder Stratton
sorry its short today...

    We had a lesson with a lady named Shayla, this week, she is cool.  She has came to church twice and is progressing very well.  She is liking everything and we are having a good time teaching her.  We also are working with a number of less actives here and they are doing good, they are coming to church and progressing very well.

MISSION FIELD: Week 94 New Week!!

                                                                    2 Mar 2015

   This last week was super good.  I really liked it!!

   So, it was interesting to see how the Lord works with us and guides us with thoughts!  We found so many cool people!! and we were guided to find them, so I know that the Lord is helping us!  We had some good lessons and we are trying to have Jessica baptized this week. but we need her dad's permission, so we are working on that. 

  This next few weeks are going to be good weeks and I hope that we are willing to follow the Spirit very well and that we will be blessed for it.

  I know that this is the truth.  We are examples for the world, let's let our light shine, so the world can see who we truly are.  I love the gospel. it is the only way to bring happiness in our lives.  We are truly blessed to have it!!

love Elder Stratton
