Washington DC South Mission: Week 88: April 18, 2016

Elder Frew to the BUNNY RESCUE!
Hey family,

This week was a good week for us. On Tuesday we taught a lesson to a
family who's recently had their dad die. They've got some young kids
too and he wasn't old at all. So we taught the restoration. We're just
going to have lessons with them weekly. They are all members but it
was good to just help this family out who's kinda gotten the shaft
recently. Then toward the end of the week we did 3 days of service in
the afternoons which was a nice change of pace. While I was pulling
weeds I saw something move in a hole in the garden that we were
re-doing. I looked in and saw four little baby rabbits. So I got a box
and took them home since we had to destroy there home anyways. Then
after a few days when I realized they were too young to eat the old
carrots I gave them, and I decided to go put them back.

 Then on Saturday we had a youth conference where all the priests and laurels 
(youth ages: 14-16 both boys and girls) went out with the elders and sisters. 

We had lots of people in our area working which was good. We got like 9 potentials
investigators just from me and the two priests who came out with me. 
So hopefully we see something good come from that finding. 

We also had our first lesson this transfer.
And it's the last week of a 7 week transfer. The guys name Is Elliot
from the Congo. We taught the restoration of the Priesthood  and 
he said we could come back next week.  So overall we had a  pretty good week.
 This morning I got permission to register for college and got most of my
classes I needed. However for some reason it wouldn't let me get English
because it needed some department clearance. But  don't worry I
emailed my counselor and told her. And English should be pretty easy
to get a class for. I'm taking:

English intro to writing
US economic history....
physical science
 humanities through the arts
And American music

I have to be in Utah on August 18th for a "jump start meeting" in order
to keep my classes that I've registered for.

Also last night we were about to go tracking for the Night when I
got a call from Elder Bunn my old companion and said that John Afroilan ( A man
Logan was able to baptize some months ago)  was
speaking at a fireside in 40 mins in Arlington. We immediately put
suits on and took a toll road down towards Arlington. We walked in the
chapel right when he started speaking. It was a really good fireside.
He had a good testimony and it was one of those days that you love
being a missionary.

 Love you all
Elder  Logan Frew

Washington DC South MIssion: Week 87: April 11, 2016

I'm not just a fisher of Fish,....following the example of Apostles being FISHERS  of  MEN! 

This morning for pday I went fishing and caught 2 nice little bass. Good way to start the week off. But this last week we had some good stuff happen. We found a girl from Ghana and her brother or maybe boyfriend. She invited us right in because it was cold as all get how this last week. She said we could come back next weekend. Ghana people are always super receptive. Only there's  a little bit of a language barrier so that may bring up an issue. 

We also stopped by and set up a time to come teach a part member family in our ward. They were super nice. He's not active. He came home from the mtc and that was kind of the start. She was raised Baptist but hasn't followed since a kid. So that was good. This will be our first real lesson since I've been in this area which will be great. This next weeks we have zone training and a youth conference where two priests (young men ages 16-18 years of age in the church which hold the office of Priest is what Logan is referring to) come and do a few hours of missionary work with us to see what a mission is like. We have a lesson set up for them, so hopefully it goes through. 

I did get your package this week too with the opened plant protein. My guess is that mom bought the protein and gave it to beaker. Beaker tasted some and didn't like the taste so they sent it to me. ha ha Thanks! I've never had plant protein before.

Well we don't have too much time today. Were going to play some baseball and soccer. Last week for pday we did the same thing and I had the game of my life for soccer. I stink at soccer and we actually were playing with 2 kids that play college soccer and I scored 4 goals! I was on fire.

Well love you all.
love Logan

Washington DC South Mission: Week 86: April 4, 2016

Hey family, 

So conference was good this weekend. We watched all the
Saturday sessions at the church including priesthood. I pretty much
didn't get too much from the first two sessions because I didn't
prepare myself for the messages. But made sure I was ready for the
priesthood session. I really liked Elder Nelson's talk along with Elder
Uchtdorf's talk...but during priesthood there was a few funny  things
that happened. So my friend Elder Hild(Robbie) who went to BYU with me
walked in like 15 late minutes to priesthood with a cookie in one hand
and a water bottle in the other so everyone looking at him. Then he
comes to my bench which was the very last middle pew and steps over
the seat while his companion walks around. Ha ha it didn't even phase him
that he just stepped over a pew in front of the stake priesthood. And
a few other things.

Yesterday we watched the morning conference at our bishops house. He
has three smaller kids and it was really funny to see how quickly they
got bored with conference. It hadn't even been the 1st speaker yet and
they were already horse playing under the blanket. It made me think of
how bored we used to get when we were little and you guys made us watch
conference. We'd would usually just play monopoly or Risk upstairs  and
play around while usually mom and dad and maybe on a good year Karli
would be downstairs watching conference.

Not much else happened this week. Still looking for people to teach
and what not. I had my endure to the end meeting where president talks
to the missionaries who have just a few transfers left which was good for me.
Love you all,
