Letter From Rhys - Week # 31 - A New area, A new Personality!

Feliz Lunes from the tropical land of the Republica Dominicana!
This week, as you all are well aware, I have been moved to a new area! It’s called La Llave! The roads are mainly dirt with 4 main streets of asphalt in our area. Its Tiny!
The members here are fantastic! They work so hard on making sure we have references to teach and they are always focused on sharing the gospel! My companion, Elder Walker, is a hard worker! He really works and focuses on helping people enter the waters of baptism. He’s about 6 feet tall, very scrawny and only loves to cook. Apparently, he doesn’t like anything else other than music. He’s also never specific about anything, so don’t ask him what type of music or food he likes.
All I know is that he hates sweet and salty but loves hot stuff or picante. Though he’s from Jamaica, he says he can’t speak English. However, he can read and teach English without a hitch. He can translate from English to Spanish, and when we accuse him of being able to speak E…

Letter From Rhys - Week #30 - Transfers! Results!

Buenas lunes from the tropical land of the Republica Dominicana!

Where you may ask? Well, it’s a magical and not so far away place called La Llave! Which means the key. The key to what exactly? I have no freaking idea!!!!!!!!😂😂😂😂😂😂But, my new companion is Elder Walker and he’s from Jamaica.
From what I have heard he’s super cool and our area is tiny. It’s like 3 blocks, but we’ll see how big it really is! I’ll send pictures of me and my new companion when I can get them! Anyway, I have spent basically the last few days packing everything in my house to go to my next area.
It’s been really fun to teach the…

Letter From Rhys - Week #29 - Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice!

Good morning from Sunny Californ... oh ... wait ... wrong one sorry!
Feliz Lunes from the tropical land of the Republica Dominicana!
This past week has been pretty peaceful on the part of teaching. We are doing a lot of contacting because our citas (appointments) fall or we can’t seem to find an Hermano (sister) to accompany us.
However, a peak moment in this week’s adventures happened to come in a box, then the box was put into another box, and then mailed to myself! Well if any are wondering, no I did not smash it with a hammer. I will address this reference later. Anyway, in this box were some nice goodies! A nice Family size bag of Genocide that I shouldn’t love but tastes soo good {Reese´s Pieces}, along with a nice little Kinder egg, a bag of trail mix, and another bag of mini candy bars!
Included with the development of much sugary tastey things, there was a smaller box with in the box! And in this box, were the 24 wonderful spices of life! Some may include but not limited…
