Things here in Kearney are going to be changing!!! 
Cause of many factors on is that i really need to kick this thing in to high gear our pool is down to zero. the one that was in the pool we will be cutting back visiting her. she has no really been progressing so we are going to let here cook for a bit and then visit her in a week or two!!
So the funnest part of missionary work finding! i think we are going to try the famous sidewalk chalk idea. Plan of salvation in chalk here we come!!! 
This week will being taking its fair share on my shoes!!

Store the words in your minds and in the very hour you need they will be given you!!!

Well nothing really to say but working!!
Or recent convert is doing awesome the sisters are now teaching her mother and we are now teaching her brother! SO thats awesome blossom also the sisters brought a young lady with them to the baptism and they set her for baptism after. She said yes!!!
Right now our teaching pool is one deep and she is begging once again to move forward she came to church this week! she kicked her sister out of the house that smoked and hopefully here shortly she will be stopping smoking shortly she has stopped before!!
Prayers for Tonya would be awesome!
Umm things in kearney are awesome we did some traveling this week it was great. we went to a town named revenna (Spelling may be wrong) and we were able to contact 3 people from the ward out there and one said they would come to church this week but that was a no go sadly but we set plans to go out there again this week and hopefully the town is a ripe and ready to harvest as i fell it is!!
So Hopefully all will go well!!!
Elder Brownie and i went to a potluck this last sunday with the ward elder brownie made brownies!!! LOL 
Umm i cant think of much more but keep the faith. As Abraham Lincoln said "what ever you are be the best what ever you are"

September 8, 2015

So my diet is over i have declared it a fail!!! 
Sweets and soda are the only things that keep
me going some days the strain
that is on my brain 
its made even worse when it rains!!!
mainly out in the plains!!!!
ok i have no idear what i am saying but man is being a district leader stressful thinking ahead and preparing trainings that will hopefully help the people in the district. 
But i am doing it and i will keep doing it until the very end.......... i think that was the plan to push the pedal to the metal for the last leg!!!
Things in Kearney are starting to get rolling. We do have a baptism coming up this weekend!!!! Which we be awesome!!! its for a 14yr old girl named Alyssa, she is the first of her family. during this whole time teaching her the family has supported her and no the mom is really start feel the spirit but she doesn't want us to push her, good thing for her we are just teachers not pushers that's the holy-ghosts job!!!!!
We also had an investigator set her self for baptism last night she set her self for October 17th She has been to church once she has a great fellow shipper. she does have some WOW issues to resolve but she wants to stop smoking but her family that lives with her smokes!!! tough.... But she has the desires!!!!  
So the craziest thing about being Kearney is that we have the same amount of miles as i did in Omaha.... crazy little fun fact and the area out here is a lot bigger then in Omaha!!!!
So update on my back its not doing better but i am making sure that i am being careful when we do service and when i have to do anything using my back!!! I am doing stretches that i have just figured out that help my back feel less tight. I am talking to people in the ward to try and find a doctor here in town and for the most part people don't really go to the doctors out here in Kearney the just rub some dirt on it and call it good. The magic dirt doesn't work for me at all!!!

Elder Brownie and i are doing well we arent the best team teachers but we are trying to improve or teaching skills together!
I have figured why in a letter from President Gardner he tells us to say we have been out for a little over a year members kinda go a bit crazy when you say 21 or 22 months and the members kinda shut down and think that you are getting trunky. i have been trunky and right now throttles are full force!!!!!!!
As we used to say in wrestling Short Time! Short time was said both ways if your losing and holding out from being pin or if you are winning going for the pin to apply that last bit of energy you have to finish the way you want to finish. Not being pinned Or pinning them!!!!
Finishing strong!!!!! Short Time!!!!!! Return With Honor!!!!!
Dont let anyone tell you what you can or cant do!!!!
