Transferred to a Zone Leader...

Hey everyone, sorry it’s been a minute... no lie I have been to lazy to write a big letter haha but here I am 😊  Well I just found out that I am being transferred to Broadway 2 to be a zone leader with my boy Elder Lesa! This transfer bout to be lit!

Other than that me and Elder Eckhardt where doing really good together! The past 2 weeks we have had like 10 investigators combined at church and that was awesome to see! I’m really excited about this one dude Carlos. He is super chill and is willing to learn. We are teaching him both English and the good word and he is loving it! He has like a photographic memory and he loves to read so like our second lesson with him we asked about how he was doing with reading and he pretty much told us all of 1 Nephi, haha! He will get baptized for sure I know it!

We where able to do some service this past saturo. I now know how to put in a tile floor haha! Since the hurricane I have pretty much learned how to re model a house, so if your looking for someone let me know haha!

I just wanna say I probably ate the best burrito of my entire life at a taco truck owned by a member. It was the best thing I have ever had. I didn’t take a picture because I ate it too fast haha, but when I
come down and visit I will be going there to show y’all what real Hispanic food is not the crap from Taco Bell haha!

I love this gospel so much! I know the lord has a plan for each and every one of us! Although things might seem tough we just need to remember that our lord Jesus Christ has our back. He will be with
through thick and thin. I love him and his gospel! It has blessed my life so much and I am so grateful!

Thank you guys for everything you have done for me! Hope you all have a great week!

Love, Elder Stringfellow

Super Bowl...

Yoo what's up. Sorry I haven’t written anything in a while. I am starting to loose patience with my iPad haha but it’s whatever. Things here have been really good!

Our investigators right now are doing really good! We have a part member family that we are working with right now and they are awesome! One of the daughters came to church yesterday. Her name is Janet and it seemed like she was a member cause she would go to all the activities and stuff so we just assumed she was haha! 

Cool story, we where just cruising down the streets on our bikes and we come to a stop light, and a homeless women asked me for some money. I told her I didn’t but then she asked us if we where Christians, and of course we say yes. She Continued to ask us where our church was and what time it started, and things like that. Then out of the blue she told us about her dad who lives in the Dominican Republic and how he is an engineer who worked on a church building their that put a gold angel on top. I don’t know a whole lot of church that have gold angels on top so I assumed she was talking about our church. Then we gave her a Book of Mormon and she said that her dad had the same book back home. We want t to talk with her again but it’s gonna be hard because she told us she goes around all of Houston a lot, but I know that when she was talking with us she for sure had a come to Jesus moment and we definitely planted a seed in her heart! 

We also had MLT on Tuesday and we talked about a lot of good stuff that’s gonna help out the mish in the future! 

I also I had an opportunity to catch a little bit of the super bowl. All I have to say is that Tom Brady is old and needs to stop and his game seems to be a little flatπŸ˜‰ I’m Happy the eagles won πŸ¦…

I love being a missionary and I love to serve the lord. Me testimony has continued to grow each day, and I feel the love of Christ more powerful than it was before each and every day! Love you guys and hope you have a great week!

Frozen Houston...

Hey guys sorry for not writing a big letter last week! The email on our I pads are being really dumb and not working so I am not sure of when your gonna get this email but hopefully it gets to you soon! 

Well transfers happened again and I am staying here in Broadway! I love it here! The people are so cool and its awesome to be around the Hispanic people here!  I'm excited to see what this transfer has in store! Oh and the Hermanas that i served with in the MTC went home this past week and that made me feel old haha! 

Are investigators are doing great! We finally got in contact with our investigator Gilberto! Him and his family have been really sick with the flu and they told us not to come over for a while so we played it cool and they texted us and said for us to come over this week! We are really excited about that! 

Other than that the only other big thing that is going on here is that it snowed last Monday and Tuesday and it was really cool to see and what not, but when we hopped on those bikes it sucked... their was ice everywhere, the wind was blowing so it felt like 10 degrees are something like that, and then to top things off everything turned into slush, and the slush mixed in with the dirty streets of Houston was straight nasty haha! but still it was fun :)

I was excited to hear about the new first presidency of the church! I know that President Nelson is a man called of god! We where talking about how president nelson has tons of connections with china, so it should be pretty cool to see what the future has for us! Thank you guys for the emails and everything! Love you guys and have a great week!

Hey everyone, hope you guys are doing good! Everything here in Broadway 3 is doing just fine! we had a pretty good week here.

First things first this past week was super cold, and it was awful not gonna lie.  We would have been fine if it wasn't so freaking windy all the time but we got through it like champs haha! We saw lots of good things come from it, and that is all that matters! 

Also this week we did a lot of walking because the bike of Elder Eckhardt had some issues.  We where able to find 3 new people to start teaching so that's good! Also we decided to walk around the sketchiest part of our area at 7:30 pm, and that was way fun haha! we talked to some crazy dudes and it was super fun! as far as work goes that is all we really have right now, but we are getting a lot more support from the ward! i am really excited to start working with them more! 

I had the opportunity to go back to my old area this week and witness a family that me and Elder Fraley taught be baptized! It was kind of a surprise but we put in so much work with them and when I found out that they wanted to make this change and was soooo excited! The baptism was great and it was awesome to see some of my favorite ward members from Houston 7 again! 

Overall this week was pretty bomb! I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a missionary! I was saddened to hear about the passing of President Monson... Really I don't know if I would be out here on a mission today, if it wasn't him making the changes that he did! He not only blessed my life but the lives of  millions! I am so grateful that we have prophets and apostles to lead and guide us today! Love you guys and hope you all have a great week!

Happy New Year...6 more months!

Whats up guys! Sorry I haven’t written in a minute but things here in Broadway have been pretty good!

Well first things first it has been freaking cold here haha. Today was a high of 35 with a windchill of like 20.... we are on bikes too so that has been fun!

Really we haven’t had the chance to talk with people because lots of them are out of town, or they don’t wanna be outside because it’s too cold, but we have definitely seen lots of miracles! We where biking at like 8:00 pm in the cold in the middle of the ghetto and we felt like we needed to go see an investigator. On the way their we felt like we needed to stop by a members store that she owns. We knocked on the door and she opened and said “wow what a miracle, I was about to call you for a blessing, my daughter in in trouble down in Mexico! So we
gave her a blessing and 5 minutes later she got a call and everything was fine! That was pretty cool the was super happy!

On the other hand we have been on a Christmas hangover and ready to start the new year! I’m excited to see what 2018 has in store and I’m excited to make the most of it! Thanks for all the love and support! Love you guys and happy new year!

Love, Elder Stringfellow

Felize Navidad

What’s up fam! Hope everyone had a good week, we had a pretty awesome week down here!

We are on bikes and not gonna lie it’s pretty fun, you see some pretty crazy things haha. We have been biking to less active members to see if they are home, because our area has a heck of a lot of less actives. We also have an investigator named Gilberto and he is super cool! His wife is a member but he isn’t and he has been taught by a lot missionaries, so we are trying to help him out little by little.

Other cool things that happened this week was that we where going to do service to help people out that are still recovering from the hurricane and on our way their the exit we had to take was closed and the detour took us into the heart of downtown haha! We got to see some pretty cool things their haha! Then the next day we went and took some pictures but some graffiti, because the stuff they got down here is crazy!

This Saturday we had our ward Christmas and it was off the chains haha! Us missionaries got to sing and we sang Rudolph in Spanish and a famous Christmas song for Hispanics called Mi burrito Sabenero. It was funny we where up their singing and we got the whole le ward singing with the us haha! That’s was pretty funny

On a spiritual side of things this week Elder Eckhardt and I had the opportunity to give about 9 blessings to members and missionaries! As I have been here on the mish the one thing I have noticed is that when you give blessings, you can feel the spirit so strong, and literally the presence of our Heavenly Father. I know without a doubt that we have his priesthood here on the earth.

Love you guys, and hope you have a great week! Feliz Navidad!

Love, Elder Stringfellow
