Baptism

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!

Love, Elder Stringfellow

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

Snowing in Houston....

Yooo what’s up guys! Sorry I’ve been super crappy in writing letters... Things here have been pretty busy and what not, but I promise I will do better!

So I was transferred from Houston 7 to Broadway 3, and no lie Broadway is the place to be! My area covers right next to downtown Houston and from our apartment you can see the city skyline and it’s pretty sweet! The area is big and we are on bikes but hope hopefully we will get a car soon haha! Their are two Spanish wards here and they so cool! We went to Broadway 2’s Christmas party and we ate so much haha

So this week was pretty crazy! First off it SNOWED!!!! I thought I was going to go 2 years without seeing snow but I was wrong haha! And after it snowed it got super cold and it was not fun on bikes haha! When it gets cold here you can feel it in your bones and it gets heck a cold! But right now the weather is really nice!

I’m excited to be here in Broadway! I forgot to mention last week that I’m serving again with my boy Elder Lesā! He’s my boss lol but it’s all good he still ain’t a better baller than me ;)

I’m still happy to be here! Being a missionary has taught me a lot of things and I a, so grateful! I know the church is true and the Book of Mormon is the word of god! Also go out and find ways to
#LightTheWorld! Love you guys and have a great week!

Transferred to Broadway...

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven’t written in a bit but things here have been super busy not gonna lie! 

Well I have left Houmont Park and I’m now here in Broadway 3! This place is so sick not gonna lie! We are right next to downtown and it’s cool to see! They say this is the promised land for Spanish missionaries because there are a lot of Hispanic people to talk to, so I’m pretty excited about that! My new companions name is Elder Eckhardt! He is a red head from Utah and he’s pretty cool. 

I’m gonna miss everyone in Houston 7 no lie... I made so many friends there and I can’t wait to go back and visit them! 

Last week we had zone conference and it was super good! President Hewlett talked about how we can become better disciples of Christ and how that can help out investigators! It was super awesome, and their is no better time to do it than right now during #LightTheWorld! I hope you guys are doing it wherever you are! 

Sorry I know it’s not a lot but I will have more next week! Love you guys and hope you have a great week! 

Love, Elder Stringfellow
