Feliz lunes (Happy Monday) from the tropical land of the
This last week as been crazy awesome! Last week during P-day
we got to go to the Mega Centro which is a 3-story mall that’s full of very
interesting things. We went into a couple clothing stores and made fun of the
weird fashions and bizarre choices of tie designs they had! We also had the opportunity to go into a sportswear
store and check things out! We heard American
music and it was awesome but at the same time really weird!!!
After, we went and had the pleasure of eating Taco bell! However, I don’t think my body liked it very
much because while I was emailing you all last week it hit me like a truck! And for this purpose, I had to sadly cut my
email short because I could not focus at all on what i was saying!!!!! If that’s too much info, I’m sorry but suck it
up and deal with it! LOL JK.
Anyway, this past week was really standard apparently. Our entire schedule was full for like 3 or 4
Note: Because of the difference in
P-days between the MTC (CCM) and the field, this letter, which is actually the
5th real letter we’ve received, written at the end of week 5 is
labelled Week #6. Going forward, the
letters will be numbered by what week number is BEGINNING instead of ENDING. You have NOT MISSED A LETTER! Rhys
will actually go out into the field next Tuesday at the end of 6 weeks from
when he reported to the MTC. He will be
unable to email home next week. When he
picks up the emails again the following week (on Monday), it will actually be the
end of 7 weeks, but the beginning of week #8 and will be numbered as such. Now that this is all clear as mud, I’ll leave
you to enjoy the real reason you’re reading this.]
Que lo que from the tropical land of Republica Dominicana!
This week has been full of fun and excitement for almost no
one! Well... that’s only partially true. 6 weeks have gone by soooooo fast!!!!!
I can’t believe I leave for the field on Tuesda…
This is Elder Wheeler reporting from the tropical land of
Republica Dominicana! I stopped using que lo que because its slang and the Lord
has asked us not to use slang in even our letters home. I pray that he will consecrate the effort I’m
putting towards gathering his sheep!
The First Week in the field has been AMAZING! There are so many people wanting to know about
the gospel and getting to teach them keeps us busy. The hardest part is getting
them to church! On the bright side were always busy!
We do a lot of walking and taking the cabs everywhere! It’s
really interesting because they have this amazing system where you can fit 8
people in a little 4 person sedan! It’s
not for those who get claustrophobic! We had a lot of meetings this week too so
I haven’t had much time to study or proselyte for that matter.
On Friday we had a fun time cooking for an investigator named
Jenni. Jenni is awesome. She has been
taught by the missionaries before and has had all of the lessons. How…
