Washington DC South Mission: Week 65: November 16, 2015

Hey family,

So we went and did temple work with Sanjay the recent convert who
helped me with my essay on Tuesday which was really cool. He did his
dad's name. We also went out to Chinese food afterwards. 

This week we taught Abbey who was the girl we found last week.
For pday today were playing football.We set up a zone finding feast this
 week in the afternoon. We had Sanjay come and talk to us before we
 went out and tried to find people to teach. The three of us also made
a video to motivate the elders and sisters in our zone using the video 
app on our iPad. We had a clips and then we played them as a slide show.
 Ryan would be proud of my movie. I'm going to try and send it as one
 video so you can see it.

I also found out that Elder Anderson loves George of the Jungle too.
So we've been quoting it all the time ha ha.

 See ya next week

Love elder frew

Washington DC South: Week 64: November 9, 2015

Hey Family;

So as you know already we got dropped by our only two progressing
investigators so as of right now we don't have any. Although we did
have a cool experience. So we went to an apartment complex
to tract and we usually start from the top and work our way down, but
as we were going up the steps I felt like we start at the bottom
rather than the normal top. We knocked a few doors and then heard
someone walking down the stairs so I immediately stopped to go talk to
them and this girl was in a rush to get to her car but said to try
again later. She drove off then two minutes later came back and said
her thing got canceled and that we could come by later in the day. We
ended up going back and teaching her the entire restoration and she
had good questions along with her 3 friends too from Maryland. She
didn't come to church but we would have never gotten in if we started
knocking the top first.

We also did our zone conference this week where president and the APs
come and teach for like the whole day, then afterwards I went on an
exchange with Elder Rice the ap. He was the first person I went on
exchange with while I was in Potomac crossing. I also got to see a lot
members from Potomac crossing at a stake priesthood meeting yesterday.
Today for pday we went to the vitamin shop and now we're going to 
play ball at the Church.

Also to answer some of your questions the guy from BYU is serving in
the neighboring Ward which is pretty cool. And I see Elder Tesch a lot
because he's an office elder so about once a week we see him when we
go get supplies for the zone. He lives with the APs too see him on
exchanges too. 

Love you all,
Elder Frew

Washington DC South Mission: Week 63: November 5, 2015

Farewell Elder Oyler, my trainer is done with his mission and heading home!
Beautiful season here in Virgina, colors are amazing!

Hey family,
So on Monday we had a half mission conference where Elder Perkins of
the 70's came and spoke to us for most of the day. It was good. I've
already heard from him before last time he came to our mission but it
was still good. The whole mission ended up moving their pday to today but
next Monday it will be back to normal. Yesterday we had our mission
leadership council which was pretty good. But we have some sort of
meeting literally everyday this week.

Also we had a lesson with Chris and Mellisa and they don't want to be
baptized anymore. So we officially have 0 investigators now. We asked
them to pray about if their decision was right but it doesn't look
super good right now. So that was a little disappointing. I was able
to finish my BYU essay though which was big stress reliever.  Sanjay
helped a ton editing them and giving me ideas on what I should write
about. He was on the Pen state admissions staff so he would review
essays on applications to there all the time.

Elder Oyler (my trainer)  went home last week which was really sad. I really am
going to miss him a lot. Thanks for sending me all the Halloween
photos; Ryan and Daniels were the best, and Ofelia's was the cutest.
This week we went to our wards trunk or treat and there was a lot of
non members there. Although that doesn't always mean they are interested.

Love Elder Frew
