This week finally!!!!!



I couldnt email more because I spent 45minutes trying to email you pictures but your  email wouldn't accept them.This week we committed some one to baptism and he accepted. We finally found a new investigator and that is basically the only new things that have happend this week. please thank the young women of the dessert hills ward for all the snacks I enjoyed them. We just do the same things  there is nothing new here it is the same old stuff. I wake up, work out, shower, eat, personal study, companion study, then we head out the door. We go IQing and tracting for at least an hour and a half every day most days we tract for 2hours and then we visit less active, investigators and other appointments. On tuesday and thursday we go do service for 2hours at the rest home. On sundays I wake up, shower, eat, and then go to church in Owingsville, about (13 miles away). We then go and visit less actives and our investigators in owingsville. We then drive and see some less actives and investigators in sharpsburg, because of or mile restrictions we can only see them on sundays, then go to dinner at the Letchers. Sister Letcher letcher feeds us every sunday night, then we drive home. Owingsville is smaller then Mt.Sterling, and Sharpsburg is even smaller then that. Sharpsburg has one gas stations, one restraunt, and is getting a dollar general. Those are the areas we cover. On saturday we go to the flea market because we have a less active memeber who works there. Last saturday we were talking to him and he said he had something for us. So he dug through some stuff and pulled out a 1950's copy of the Book of Mormon so me and my comp. flipped a coin for it. I won it! It is really neat it is a missionary's copy it had a buch of old missionary teaching aids in it from the 50's it has a red cover and the angel moroni on it. That is basically my week.

another update

We have been told we aren't suposse to talk about investigators. I can tell you about people we run into like one preacher we ran into said "I don't believe in your faith your going to hell no one wants to hear your lies you JW". Then we told him we are mormons and he was like oh sorry. Then he told us he went to utah, to your visitor center it was a really cool place. We talked to him a little more. He said "I believe you mormons are right that their is a prophet on earth, but that joseph smith business is wrong". so we talked with him a little longer then left.  My companion and I cooked the raccoon and the turtle ourselves. kentucky is a very hilly place I will send pic next week. We go to the library to email. oh and every one in bath country is related it is crazy. We say do you know so and so and they are like yeah thats my grandpa and that persons moms cousin or what ever. Really you just ask how they are related to the Hattons or the Shrouts and they will tell you how they are related.

Eder Broomhead has been out for 14months. We do have a walmart in our town. The ward here is smaller then the one in NM. Transfers were on the 24th and I stayed in this area. The town I'm in has a population of about 7,000. Not a single on of them has ever heard of toothbrush or ever been to a dentist it seems. The weirdest thing I00 I have eaten: frog legs they were pretty good the tasted like fishy chicken wings, we had a member trap and kill a racoon for us, so we skinned it cooked it and ate it. Today we are going to catch turtles and going to eat them tonight. Every one says that turtle meat is super good so we are excited for that. oh and everyone here drinks Ale-8-one it is like stewarts ginger beer but better (like rootbeer).  It is weird here no one really has a particular religion they just go to the closest church. It is funny cause they will tell us "I don't believe most of what the preacher says but it's the closest church, so I go there. They also will say I go to that church cause it has the shortest service. I know the racoons can carry disease. Thats why we blessed it before we ate it. Lexington is the place that has horse derby's. Mt Sterling is around 7000 the next closest elders are in winchester and morehead. We teach about 20 lessons a week.
