Washington DC South Mission: Week 58: September 28, 2015

I finally caught a fish here dad! Cute little fellow
Here's our new wheels, no more bikes for a while
Our new threesome companionship
My birthday Celebration! loved it!

So Ashburn has been great area. This week Sister Anderson from Potomac
crossing ward took us out to lunch at light foots. We also had dinner with
the Caninganis who are in Goose Creek the neighboring Ward.... We also
got set up big time this week. So we had a Referral from some elders to
try a guy named Shaun. We text ed him and he gave us an address to to
come by and have a lesson. So we plug the address in and it's in some
rehab facility. We showed up and met the guy. He was like 20 and pretty
different. He told us his church service was going on right now but we
could talk afterward. So after the service was over everyone in his
congregation came and questioned us. It wasn't too bad. They kinda
just wasted are night. We did get a few people who were actually
interest though ha ha. Afterward the guy was like "I hope you don't
feel like I set you up". They did invite us back. So we're going to go
 back just to recruit people.


Anyways we did find some super solid people this week. We found a
couple named Chris and Melissa. He's 20 and she's 18. They're engaged
and have kind of had some rough years behind them... So we had two
lessons with them this week and Chris came to church! It was my first
person at sacrament meeting in over 4 and half months. So we should be
able to work with them. It's so nice to have someone solid to work
with. We also found some other good people that seem to have some good
potential.

We've had some funnies stories already with new threesome companionship. Elder
Anderson sprayed 
cologne in my eyes on accident this week.He's smashed the car door
 into 3 card doors already, and a 
shopping cart holder. But it's all good. Today
for pday we played football.

Washington DC South Mission: Week 57: September 21,2015

Hey family,

 So transfers were this week, and I got what I wanted for

 my birthday. I'm finally out of Burke and back up in Loudon county.
 I'm now serving in the Ashburn Ward with Elder Severe and Elder
 Anderson. Elder Severe and I are the Zone leaders for the Ashburn zone
which is pretty cool. We have a nice Subaru and a legit apartment
 complex. We will more than likely stay at  together for at least two transfers.
 I got to see some people from my old ward in Potomac Crossing already.

 Which has been sweet. Elder severe is awesome. 


 There are three of us here in Ashburn because President Huntsman didn't
 want to white wash( two new elders in an area) so Elder Anderson
 stayed. But really  alot of other elders that have been here have
 literally done nothing. The people in the area haven't been contacted 
 in months. So we are pretty much starting from scratch here. 
 But it's good because Elder Severe and I can get the area back in shape.
 Elder Severe is a really good missionary to. I'm super excited to be his companion.

 My birthday was kinda lame. Elder Severe made me pancakes which was nice and
 I got a bunch of phone calls from people calling and singing happy birthday.
 But two members from my old ward are going to have me over this week to celebrate.

 When we first came into the apartment the place was a wreck. We literally threw
 bags and bags of trash and crap away. It was pretty ridiculous because it's the

 nicest apartment in the mission. But we cleaned it up and threw all the garbage
 out so now it's not bad at all. I'm really excited to be in the Ashburn Ward. The members
 seem really good and I think we should have a lot of success while

 we're here. I haven't gotten any birthday gifts yet. But if you are sending something for my bday
 I need some gift cards. I ran out of money the second week of the Month. So I've been
 scraping the bottom of the barrel. So that be nice.


 Love Elder Frew

WEEK 56: WASHINGTON DC SOUTH MISSION: SEPTEMBER 14,2015


Hey family,

 This week is transfer week. After talking with President Huntsman at church Sunday it sounds that I'm probably going to leave Burke finally. I pretty much told the Zls, APs, and President that I needed out of Burke. It will be a good thing for me to leave. I have no faith in the area and I didn't like it here. Elder Burleson has a good chance of training when I leave even though he's only been here for 6 weeks. He's ready for it. He's a really good missionary. I really didn't even have to do anything. I probably learned more from him too.

Today for pday we are going into DC for a little bit. We got a car to use just for the week until transfers come and then we have to give it back. I don't really care though because I'm leaving the area. I went on exchanges with the APs which was a lot of fun. We went street contacting at George Mason University. 

Yesterday we worked at a booth for the Burke center festival. It was a little family history booth that we just talked to people about if they were interested in. It was actually pretty fun. It was a super nice day and it was good to have a change of pace. There were a bunch of mascot costumes of cartoons like sponge bob and the ninja turtles. I was only able to get a picture with he George Mason Mascot unfortunately. 

Next week I should have a new area and a new companion which will be good for me. It's really weird that I'm already 20. It kind of scares me. I'm already like 1/4 done with my life. If you want to send some stuff for my bday you can send jerky and gift cards. I have 11 dollars to live off for the next month because I spent 60 bucks on protein and somehow,blew it all in less than two weeks. Just send healthy stuff.

Love you all.

Washington DC South Mission: Week 55: September 7, 2015

We did service at the Old Railroad Museum, replacing rail ties. 
Dear Family,

We went golfing today with Warren Cheek, who's a non-Member. Last week we
went fishing with him too, which was really good. We just went to the driving
range and did a little bit of putting. He's a super nice guy and
really likes doing stuff with us. All of his kids are grown. 

We had a couple of lessons this week with people, but they weren't promising at
all. We talked with a cool Muslim guy one night and we set up a church
swap. So we're going to try and go to a mosque soon. I have grown to
have a lot of respect for the Muslim people here. Although there is
almost no chance of converting them. They always are nice and a lot
better people than most Christians are who claim to believe in Christ.

We had an exchange with the zone leaders which was a lot fun. The zone
leaders are really cool. Today for pday after we went golfing Warren then he
took us to max muscle where we got some protein. Then shopping and to
the church for basketball. So a pretty good pday. Tonight we probably
will have two lessons. So hopefully those go well.

 This week we also did service for an old railroad museum place moving railroad ties.

Love Elder Frew
