Monday, March 26, 2012   Is is email address. He can recieve emails, he isnt suppose to reply by email he will write you. I am sending him stamps to use for this purpose..... so he would love to hear from any of you.
I'm doing great and working hard. We tract everyday for at least 1.5 hours usually more. Last week we dropped alot of our investigators cause they weren't progressing. Now we are in the finding stage and are rebuilding our teaching pool. Right now we are working with alot of part member and inactive family trying to reactivate them and teach the rest of the family.  People here are really nice. No one has slammed a door in our faces or yelled at us. They will either listen, say maybe some other time or open the door and say they aren't interested. We did tract into an apostalic penicostal preacher and he was like I respect your dedication to your faith but you are wrong there is only one god. Jesus, GOD, and holy ghost are all the same person and he quoted one scripture. We informed him we weren't there to fight We told him we had and I had to stop myself from bashing with him. They said the last mission president said "don't bible bash with people, but if you do Win." but the current President says not to bash at all. 
If you send me a package send it USPS because they can't forward Fedex or UPS. It takes me like a month to get them if you don't send them USPS.

Elder Frisbys first letter from the mission field

Warning: spelling and grammer not a direct reflection on my parenting skills. I will try and correct what I catch with spell check. (red is Angela his favorite moms thoughts)
The MTC was fun, at times it felt like EFY, but it also felt like prison the last week I was in the MTC.  I kept running into josh it was fun. I made a lot of great friends.  The funniest thing I was sitting in the airport and I saw this guy starring at me with a big grin on his face. I was thinking to myself who is this guy but then he got closer and I realized it was Brady Bearnson. We talked for a little bit and he told me he had just got back from Kalabs wedding. He was also on our flight to Denver it was cool. The man sitting next to me told me about his mission. When we landed I talked to brady for a little bit then said good bye. We had a 2 1/2 hour lay over in Denver so my district and I got to know the other missionaries going to Kentucky. Then one of the missionaries decided it was a good idea to talk about how some highschool students tried to use bombs to high-jack a plane. I then had to point out that talking about people high-jacking plane with bomb isn't something to be talking about in the middle of an airport. luckly nothing happend and we were able to get on the plane. When we landed in Kentucky the mission president, his wife, and the AP's picked us up. We then went to the mission home where we got briefed  on the mission. We spent the night there then went to transfer meeting. I'm Serving in MT.Sterling Kentucky, it small, ghetto, and run down little town, but the people here are nice. My first day in the field we went tracting and visited some resent converts. My companion is Elder Broomhead and he is from Spanish fork, Utah. While tracting my companion says I have to knock this next door. When I knock on the door, a women comes to the door with a shotgun pointed at me. Then she starts yelling at me. This goes on for a bit, then my comp informs me this is the reccent convert. They do this to all the new missionarys in Mt.sterling. Then we went to a non member house for dinner and when the brought out the food it was all died green for a greenie. I only got one package from the mission home. Did you get my letter? Can you get me Erins and Caleb Roys addresses.  How are you guys doing? I need a few things a cammel back, my blue shoes, my suit, sunglasses , pic's of the wedding,  maybe some ankle wieghts, karch do me a favor and ask mitchell shields if he has gotten his call yet and give him my address so he can write me. also i'm good on junk food for a few months can u send me some simple recipes and real food?
Anyone wanting to send him simple recipes that would be great, Im not sure what kind of real food he wants me to sent but I have a feeling that real food doesnt ship well! We were so excited to have Brady run into cameron.. it made up for the fact cameron didnt call home from the airport! almost!

Letter and picture from the Kentucky mission

Dear Sister Frisby,

Elder Frisby arrived here in the GKLM (the Great Kentucky Louisville Mission) safe and sound on Monday, virtually beaming from ear to ear from the moment we saw him. We were and are very impressed with him.
After getting the bags and loading up the GKLM trailer (Great Kentucky Louisville Mission) the missionaries hopped in the Mission van for the short ride to the Mission Home. President Woodbury began interviews while I conducted an orientation meeting and the Assistants to the President took individual pictures to be used on the Transfer Boards at the Mission Office and Mission Home. We were joined by the two couples from the Mission Office and sat down to a home-cooked dinner of Hawaiian haystacks, artichoke, avacado, and strawberry salad, cinnamon pull-apart rolls, and frozen fruit dessert.
The two couples left after the meal and the rest of us went downstairs to the Training Room (aka the family room) to have a “Welcome to the Best Two Years” skit by the Assistants, and Testimony Meeting. What a spiritual feast! Your wonderful son bore a strong and powerful testimony, more like an experienced missionary than a new one. We're looking forward to great things with and through him...      Then, it was off to bed with chocolates on his pillow for sweet dreams.
Tuesday morning we had a hot breakfast of egg and ham casserole, muffins, and fresh fruit, followed by Companionship Study and orientation regarding finances and vehicles. By 10:00 we were at the church adjacent to the Mission Office for Transfer Meeting.
After the song and prayer, the outgoing missionaries gave their departing "Words of Wisdom" and then it was time for new missionaries to be in the spotlight. Each stood as he or she was introduced, along with the name of their Trainer and their first area.  After Elder  Frisby stood, Elder Broomhead, a terrific and dedicated missionary, one of our best, ran over to hug his new companion and take him to the area in the chapel reserved for them. "Called to Serve" was sung, GKLM style, and then President Woodbury announced the rest of the transfers. Following the meeting, the new missionaries and their Trainers met to be introduced to the new 12-week Training Program, after which they and the outgoing missionaries had lunch there at the church before having their pictures taken by the sign at the Mission Office. That was it - After pictures Elder Frisby took off with Elder Broomhead to his first area, charged and raring to go!
            President Woodbury and I appreciate you sending your wonderful son on to us and pray you will be blessed in his absence from your family.
            Love, Sister Woodbury

Shot record Delay???

You need to go get the shot record from the Doctor so I can leave the MTC. My companion is from washington origanally, but lives in provo now.  He also looks like Harry Potter and while we were at devotional last night this Elder sat down in front of us and he looked exactly like Ron. My whole district started laughing. I'll send you pic later. The other night we had a Devotional from Alex Boye he is a singer from london and he is super funny. One of the zone teachers brother Hoopes served with Brandon Caywood. He wasn't one of his companions but he knows B.  Tell Kalab and Keelie congrats for me. I miss you all.  I saw josh, we are going to talk and take pics tonight. well I got to go later!

He was supppose to go to the Doctors office and get the shot record figured filled out before he left since I had to work. He didn't! I thought I might have to leave him in the MTC a little longer when I got this. Luckily for him I had the shot records on my email from when he turned in his mission papers. I happened to be in Seattle at the time for Kalabs wedding.

Short and sweet

I'm doing good. It has been a really cool experience. I have run into a lot of kids from BYU-I. I love my district they are really good. Today we went to the temple and did endowments. Elder Holland spoke at tusedays devotional. I have been learning alot. There are two elders in my district going to the NM mission so thats cool. It feels like I have been here for a month already,  it is really weird. We are teaching investigators,  it is a little hard but it is good trainning. so whats going on there? I love you all and I will write more next time.

     Its my first day in the MTC and I already have ran into some familiar faces. First I ran into sister cox, her brother Jaren did pole vaulting with me in Colorado Springs. I'm pretty sure she was in Karch's seminary class.
Elder Larsen who I was in my Missionary prep class at BYUI with and also did  Parkour with a the Madison Gym. My companions name is Elder Ralph he is nice and very energetic. He is also going to Louisville kentucky. We share a room with two other elders. Elder Allen is also going to Louisville and Elder Ashby who is going to Berlin Germany. Elder Ashby reminds me of Justin Lebaron. I havent seen Josh or Nick yet. (those are camerons cousins that are going on missions the same time as him) On the first day they had us teaching. Two elders in our district are going to the Albuequerque NM mission. Send stamps and envelopes to me.
Love Elder Frisby

Im pretty sure as a mother I have failed to teach him proper use of a envelope. Im sure this might be one of his first ever sent.  I was looking at the envelope thinking who is this to, then looked up the in the corner and realized my son had sent the letter and that explained alot! We hope Elder Frisby learns alot about himself, the Gospel of Jesus Christ and how to address a envelope while out on his mission!
