Transferred to Galena Park, TX

Hey everyone hope you guys had a good week! This was a good last week here in liberty! I am getting transferred, but I don't know where yet haha!

This was a good week this week! We had some good progression with Rosa! She is still doing good with no smoking and drinking! Hopefully she will be baptized here in the next couple weeks! Nothing really much to report on this week! 

Me and Elder Paulsen just had fun this week! We got work done and had some good times! One thing we had to do this week was give talks in sacrament meeting. All 4 missionaries in the branch had to give one on the same topic and it was kind difficult because I was the last speaker and most of the stuff had already been talked about haha! Anyways it went really good! 

Had to say bye to a lot of good members this week which was kind of sad... This area has been good to me, but I am ready for a change! I love you guys and hope you have a great week! 

Love, Elder Stringfellow

Power of the Priesthood

Hey everyone hope you guys had a great week! I am here in galena park with my boy elder nabo! He is from Africa and he is about 6'7! Super cool and funny also! 

Well let's just say, I got so many hispanos on my hands I don't know what to do with myself haha! Here there are so many more than my last area! We get fed so much also, I probably had more dinners this past week here than I did my entire time in liberty haha! We have a hermana that makes homemade betos burritos and they are sooooo good! Best things I have ever had! Also had some bomb tacos as well! 

When it comes to investigators we have some solid people. Taught a guy named Carlos yesterday that is super ready I am really excited to work with him! 

Yesterday we had an experience that really opened my eyes... we where driving back from dinner at our bishops house and all of sudden traffic stopped and we had to slam on our brakes. There was obviously an accident and we knew that there was a person in the car. So we pulled the car over and ran over to the car and saw the young lady sitting there barely breathing with a big giant cut in her forehead. I'm not gonna get too graphic but you could see her brain, and the first thing we tried to do was give her a blessing.  We did, and waited about 10-15 minutes for ambulance to show up. When they came she was still breathing and everything but right as they tried to take she passed away. If their is anything that I learned from yesterday is that god has a plan for all of us. It was definitely shocking to see someone pass away right in front of me.  I am so grateful for the plan of salvation and everything it has in store for me. I really hope that she had a taste of what the gospel is in this life. I know this church is true and god has a plan not only for me but for everyone! 

Hopefully this all makes sense... Was a pretty crazy week not gonna lie.  Thanks for the the love! Love you guys and have a great week! 

Love, Elder Stringfellow

Patience Grasshopper...

Hey hope you guys had a good week! This was a pretty good week here in liberty. 

Well not a whole lot of exciting things happened this week. We are still working with Rosa Chavez and she is still doing good with no smoking. We have her on date for this Sunday but we will see how that goes. The other rosas are doing good. They wanted to come to church this week, but it was stake conference and it's about a 45 minute drive to the stake center so none of the rosas ended up coming but that's ok:) 

As I said we had stake conference this week and it was really good! Elder Dube from the seventy came and spoke and he gave a great talk. He has a really thick accent and it was kind of hard to understand, but what I got out of it was really good! I also got to see some of my homies from other areas which is always fun! On our way home we got stuck in traffic for like 45 minutes because of a huge accident. They had to life flight the person to the hospital and the helicopter flew right over us. That was probably the most exciting thing of the week right their haha! 

I also got to go on exchanges with my good friend Elder Bingham. We talked a lot about the good times we have had, and we talked a little basketball as well lol ;) we also called up some of our favorite people from other areas and it was cool to be able to go with them! We did however have a very spiritual lesson with the husband of Rosa Chavez, Arturo. He said he wants to find ways to feel closer to god, and we where like well why don't you help out your wife, and stuff like that. Hopefully we can teach him more throughout the coming weeks. 

Sorry if these letters are getting boring for those who read, not gonna lie this is a pretty dry place haha, but I love being a missionary, and I wouldn't wanna be any where else! Love you guys and hope you have a great week! 

Love, Elder Stringfellow

Another Day in Liberty, TX

Hey everyone hope you guys had a good week! This was a pretty interesting week here in liberty! 

To start things off our #1 investigator Rosa Chavez is doing great! She has made it 6 days without smoking, or drinking or anything like that! We go and visit her everyday, and she loves it when we come, and we love going to visit with her because we always have great lessons with her! Without smoking and drinking in her life, she seems so much more happier, and it looks like she has a lot more energy to get everything done that she needs to get done. Yesterday she came to church and bore her testimony, and it was one of the coolest experiences of mission, hearing a non member bear their testimony in front of everyone saying, I know that this church is true and I can't wait to be baptized so that I can feel clean again, has to be one of the best feelings their is! 

Other than that this week, we have been trying to find people to teach. We thought their would be a lot more people at home because school just got out and what not, but we where sooooo wrong lol. The other day we probably knocked about 30 houses throughout the day, and we got 2 answers, and the where white people lol! Just gotta keep moving forward! 

On Tuesday we had dinner with an English member with the English members. The member that fed us is so nice and sweet, but she is about 90% blind and can only really see shapes and what not. She loves to have the missionaries over and talk with us, and we love to go over their as well! I felt really stupid because we where talking about a movie, and me, being the genius that I am asked her if she had ever seen the movie, totally forgetting that she was BLIND! I have never felt more stupid then I did in that moment haha! This is only the beginning of our dinner....

So this member lives with a man named jerry. Jerry is a returned Vietnam vet and this guy is something else... The reason he is living with her is because he got drunk and ran into her trailer and totally wrecked it. So he feels bad and is letting her stay with him because she has family all over the country. Jerry has PTSD really bad and he feels like the government made him into what he is today. He has been blown up about 5 times according to him, and his whole body is made out of metal because of all the operations. We where talking, and he looked at me and said, our you a nazi? I was a little surprised, and then he said, hitler made you in his laboratory didn't he?? I didn't know that to say so me and the other elders just kind of went along with it and it was funny! Then we where talking about something else and I was paying attention to what he had to say, then he looked at me and said whatcha looking at?? Don't think I won't come over their and best you up cuz I will said jerry. I said I don't doubt that as his fists where clenched ready to just deck me right in the face. He then turned to everyone and, I beat all of you up, and if I can't take you guys down, I just shoot you all! I gotta little scared right their because he has an assault rifle right next to his garbage can lol! Later in he clammed down a bit and went of on the government and what not, but that was one of the most interesting experiences of my mission to say the least haha! 

Kind of a long letter this week, but I love all of you and just wanna let you know that o love what I am doing, and I wouldn't wanna be anywhere else right now! Love all of you and hope you have a great week! 

Love, Elder Stringfellow

Broken Frying Pan

Hey everyone hope you guys had a great week this week! This was a pretty interesting week here in liberty! As always it was hot as crap 

To start things off we went in exchanges this Tuesday and it went pretty good. The best part was I got my back adjusted and it feels amazing haha! Also got to play with a bulldog named Zeus and I thought he was gonna die because he was so excited and was breathing so heavy! It made me laugh! 

Well our investigator Rosa was doing really well. She is still coming to church reading and praying as everything but there is still that one thing holding her back.... We where walking to her front door going to teach her, and she was outside smoking:( I was super sad because she was doing really good, but I know This is something that is super hard to overcome. After we taught her and we had one of the best lessons of my mission! We went in their and and talked with her a little bit and shared ether 12:27 and after we read it she just let it out! She was crying saying that she wants to change and she needs to change, but she has zero support from her family.. We are going to try and do everything we can to help her out so she can overcome this! Gonna try and get the branch involved also 

Well this week our frying pan broke and I didn't think much of it because, i was just going to ask the zone leaders for a new one, but they can't get us a 5.00$ frying pan, but they can get us a 50.00$ blender... Doesn't make much sense to me, but anyways I was cooking my eggs yesterday morning and I had our oven mitts on holding the the pan while I was cooking because our handle broke, and I was making sure my eggs where cooked all the way and I didn't notice I was holding the pan for a good minute and when I took my hand off I noticed there was a lot of smoke and I thought my eggs where just burning... I was wrong lol my hand was on fire and I was freaking out, and their was smoke everywhere, but don't worry I am fine, just feel a little dumb that's all! Also yesterday we had to teach Sunday school with 5 minutes to prepare. Our counselors in the presidency are a little lazy but it's ok haha! 

This week I read a lot out of the boom of mosiah and I really like chapter 24.  If you have the chance, go read it because I know that all of us go through hard time but the lord will always be their, I know that to be true! I am so grateful to be out here in the field! Love you guys and hope you have a great week!

Happy Mothers Day...

Hey everyone hope you guys had a great week, and a great Mother's Day! Hope you all had a great time talking and what not. This was another week here in liberty I guess you could say lol! 

This was really just a plain week. A lot of knocking and not a whole lot of answers haha! This week was also very hot! We had one day where the wind was blowing and it felt like a blow dryer and it was miserable... This summer is gonna be good but awful at the same time! 


We did do some service this week which was good. We helped a member tear out his back porch and that was fun. We got to use some big giant crowbars which made me feel pretty manly lol! 

This week I was thinking and I am so grateful that I was born and raised in Utah haha! We have been trying to help a member that has been struggling with some things at school, and it really made me grateful to have been raised there. These kids really do have it tough and I have so much respect for them because there really are some stupid kids here... 

Anyways that's all I got this week! Love you guys and hope you have a great week! 

Pic: gotta haircut this week lol probably one of the most exciting things

Hola amigos

Hey everyone hope you guys had a great week! This was a very interesting/busy week here in liberty. Oh and we received transfer calls on Saturday and me and Elder Paulsen will be staying together one more here! I'm excited to be staying with Paulsen but we will see how my 4th transfer here in liberty will go haha!

So to start off this letter we had the opportunity to be in a trio this week with our district leader Elder Despain. His companion went home on Wednesday so we have been with him since then. We have been covering both of our areas so it has been very very busy. It was a pretty good 5 days with him, but let's just say that I am very glad that those 5 days are over haha! He is a good kid and a good missionary, but being in English land all week made me miss the Spanish people that we are teaching! And the fact he used all my workout equipment in the morning before me made me angry lol!

The people we are teaching are doing good. Our friends Rosa, and Rosa are back on the map once again! We had some very good lessons with them this past week! They didn't come to church yesterday but, we had a good lesson that cleared up some of the doubts and concerns they had. We should be having some more good lessons with them this week! Cool experience yesterday we went and visited our friend/recent convert Enrique. He has been really sad lately and hasn't really been talking to us a whole lot, because there in something on his mind that is bothering him, you can tell.

So we went over there and asked him if he wanted a blessing, and at first he sad no I'm OK. I really felt like I needed to give him a blessing so I kept trying to get a yes out of him, and eventually we got one! He was saying no because his dad was right there and he didn't wanna look weak in his words. Anyways I gave him the blessing and right after it was over he got up gave me the biggest hug and had a huge smile on his face, and said thank you that's just what I needed! After that he was talking with us being the Enrique that we know and love!

The experience we had yesterday with Enrique made me so grateful to be able to have the priesthood here on earth again! It's real, it works, and it's available to everyone! God knows and loves every single one of his children, I have no doubt about that! Love you guys and hope you have a great week! Love, Elder Stringfellow

David Enchilada

Hey everyone hope you guys had a good week! Not a whole lot of exciting things happened here in liberty this week... It is starting to get really hot and humid and it's making me less and less excited for the summer lol

Well to start off, last P-day was pretty good I guess..  Our district leader signed us up to do service for a national wildlife refuge, and we had to go around and paint the trunks of some trees so that people could follow the trails and not get lost even though the highway was like 2-3 miles from where we were at lol. That was the hermanas job lol, our job as Elders was to move trees and branches that had fallen on the trail. It wasn't the funniest P-day activity, but we had a good time and got some service out of it. 

This week we did a lot of knocking and there wasn't a whole lot of success, but that's alright! Just gotta keep moving forward:) One of our solid investigators Rosa Lauren told us that she had a dream and that me and Elder Paulsen where in the dream holding the Book of Mormon telling her this is true, and after we had said that she saw a bunch of men and women dressed in white saying what we are teaching is true! She didn't know what to think so we taught her how people can receive answers to their questions through dreams and then talked about lehi and his dream. She said she has been praying everyday to see if what we are teaching is true, but hasn't received an answer, but we helped her come to the conclusion that this is her answer right here! Pretty cool lesson, but she went to go get her coffee from the donut shop, instead of going to church haha! She makes me laugh sometimes. 

Yesterday was pretty awesome! Let me give you some background first, but David Archuleta came, spoke, and sang for a women's conference down here in Houston this week. Some of the members in the branch went and said it was awesome! Well davids little sister hermana archuleta is in our mission and she goes home in a week, so somehow she convinced president drake to have a fireside for some of the young adults in our stake and for the missionaries. The only way you could go as a missionary was if you brought an investigator or a recent convert. Me and Elder Paulsen invited the Garcia family they came, and they had a great time! David gave a good talk, and he can still sing pretty good! It was funny Hermano Garcia got in the car after the meeting and said, "dang, that David Enchilada can really belt it!" Me and the rest of the family where dying!! The whole time he thought that was his last name lol! Also got to see some of the other missionaries I have served with, and some of my favorite members from Port Arthur. Very good day :) 

Anyways that's all I got this week. Love being a missionary and I am having such a fun time! Love you guys and hope you have a great week! 

Love, Elder Stringfellow

Bautismo!!

Hey everyone hope you guys had a great week! This was an awesome week here in liberty! 

This Sunday we had our baptism for Lali and Anthony Garcia! It was so awesome!! Their dad received the priesthood after church and then after got to baptize his two kids and it was amazing to see! We have been working with them really hard, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to help them get to where they are today! After they where baptized the came back into the chapel and we asked how they both felt, and at the same time they both said clean! It was so awesome to be apart of this great opportunity! Hopefully by them making this decision will help out some of their family members that aren't members have the desire to learn more! 

Other than that this week was pretty good! Me and Elder Paulsen had the opportunity to be some special guests in our district meeting! We where talking about how we can get out members more involved with the work and so our district leader wanted to do a role play, so me and Elder Paulsen dressed up as fake members and it was funny! I got to be the Spanish member Hermano guapo haha! It was funny they where teaching in English and I was acting like I didn't understand! Made the district leader a little angry, but you need to have fun on your mission!

We also saw a big giant flea market with a bunch of different booths! It was super big and there where a lot of drunk crazy rednecks their not gonna lie haha! 

We had zone conference this week and that went good! President Drake is a really cool guy and a really good teacher! He talked about how we shouldn't have any excuses and to go out their and get it done! Well if we go out their with faith and confidence we can do anything! I know that to be true! I have had a lot of faith these past couple weeks and it has definitely worked out for me! We need to trash our list if excuses and go out there get it done! I love being a missionary and I am so grateful for the opportunity to be one! 

That's all that really happened this week! Love all you guys and will continue to keep you guys in my prayers! Love you and have a great week!

Love

City Council Mtg in Liberty Texas

Hey everyone hope you guys had a good week and a happy Easter! This was a pretty interesting week here in liberty! 

So a while back Elder Johnson and I met the mayor of Liberty, Carl Pickett, and we had a nice little conversation with him. I didn't think much of it, but he called us the other day and asked if Elder Stringfellow was the one talking and I said yes, this is him, and then he asked us if I was able to say the prayer to start off city council meeting and if Elder Paulsen could lead the pledge of allegiance. We said heck yeah we can haha! We went and did that on Tuesday and it was really cool! Got to explain what we do everyday and that we are those crazy dudes on the bikes! Also found out that Texas has their own pledge of allegiance and and they recite it after the actual one. It was a little weird, but it didn't surprise me cause it's Texas, and it's it own country haha!

Other than that, everything here is pretty much the same. Just trying to find people really. We where going to have a baptism this Sunday,  but Lail and Anthony missed their interviews on both Friday and Saturday! That was super frustrating, but they came to church yesterday, said they where sorry and what not, and we ended up having the interviews right after church. They will be baptized next week by their dad who just received the priesthood! It's gonna be super awesome I'm super excited! Just please pray everything goes well! We also got their less active uncle Noe to come to church for the first time in 21 years! He loves us missionaries and he hooks us up with some cool stuff! Really cool guy! 

I love Easter time! It's a time for us to remember Jesus Christ and what he did for us! I am so grateful that he suffered and died for us, but knowing that he lived again, and we all will also, brings me great comfort! I am grateful for the plan our Heavenly Father has for each and everyone of us! He really does love us and knows what's best for us! I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a missionary! Wouldn't trade it for anything right now!

Love you guys and hope you have a great week! Go jazz :)

Love, Elder Stringfellow

On the slow side...

Hey everyone hope you guys had a great week! This was just another week here in liberty not gonna lie! 

This week was a little bit on the slow side... we usually have most of our appointments with investigators after 4-5:00 because that's when they are usually getting home from work and school and what not, but before that time is very hard to find people to talk too. We are in a small town and I've talked to most of the Hispanics and white people here so it's kind of hard, but I know god has me here for a reason and it's for the people I am working with right now! We did a lot of knocking and trying to find people and all we got was a bunch of angry white people that said if we don't get off their porch we are gonna sick our dogs on you haha! 

Our people are doing good! We are having the baptism for Lali and Anthony here this Sunday and I am super excited! Please pray that we will be able to talk to them soon and get them ready! They are sometimes hard to talk with. Everyone else is doing good. Just need to work on a couple things with them, and I know the lord will help us out! I also got the opportunity to speak in sacrament meeting about member missionary work. Talked about ways we can share the gospel and the importance of it. 

As I have been studying and thinking about this last general conference I haven been thinking about how grateful we are to have a prophet today! Even though his messages where short, the where too the point, and it's something we really need to do right now! I am so grateful to be out here and for the opportunity to be a missionary! Life is good :) 

Love you guys and hope you have an awesome week!

General Conference and My Birthday

Hey everyone hope you all had a great week! Thanks for all the birthday wishes, means a lot! Also hope you all enjoyed general conference! It was the best birthday present ever haha! 

This was a good but slow week kind of. I got my new companion Elder Paulsen. He is super chill and he likes to have fun and get work done! I have been showing him around the area and what not this week and we have been trying to talk with our solid investigators but they have been really busy with life and what not! We had to move the baptismal date for Lali and Anthony Garcia one week because they have to leave church early to go to a family event in Houston which is ok! Still trying to work with a Rosas also, they have been sick this week so kind of hard! We did find out that one of them is already in 3 nephi! I was curious and asked her where she was at and she showed me and I was in shock! Hopefully we can get them to church more! 

Oh yeah we also got a car! The made our area a little bit bigger for us and they decided that it needed a car! We only get 600 miles every month but it's better than nothing haha! I'm not sure how I feel about the car, it's just one more thing I gotta take care of lol! Anyways I am excited to work with the new areas we got, and I know that we will have success if we work hard! 

We were able to watch general conference this weekend and it was awesome! It is so hard for me to choose my favorite talk but it was probably given by President Uchtdorf in the priesthood session. I loved how he said the most important calling in the church right now is the one I have! When I have this mindset I will not only be able to lift up others, but I will be able to become the man that god wants me to be! My favorite quote from his talk says "God’s greatest reward goes to those who serve without expectation of reward." Knowing that if I am all in, and give it my all, god will bless me with his greatest rewards that he has for me! 

Love all of you guys so much and hope you all have a great week! Adiós:) 

Love, Elder Stringfellow

5 investigators at Church....

Hey everyone hope you guys had a good week! This was a great week here in liberty, the only bad thing is that my boy Elder Johnson is getting transferred and I will be getting my new companion later today!  We will see how that goes!

This week not really a whole lot happened. We got to go to the temple on Thursday and do a session and it was great! You always feel the spirit when you are there and for me personally I always feel at peace and I love that about the temple! Got to go eat at Wendy's after for the first time in a long time and that was great lol!

This Friday and Saturday the city of liberty had a jubilee festival and there was a ton of people here in town! We went there to try and talk to some people but they really didn't care haha! We did however get some really cool blankets from a trading post for like 10 bucks so that was sweet haha! We are a little mad at ourselves because they had a ton of BBQ there and we thought that it was going to be super expensive, but no all the stuff they had was free because it was a big cook off....We where bummed about that...

But it's ok because on Sunday at sacrament meeting we had 5 investigators there!!! It was so awesome to see that all of our bike riding is paying off! We had the Garcia family there including almost all the brothers which are less active. We are getting in pretty tight with the brother Noe and his wife Laura! They are super awesome Laura is not a member and is super interested and whenever we are with her she is always talking about baptism and how she thinks of important for her in her life right now! She and Noe are super cool! We also had our 2 favorite sister Rosa and Rosa there as well! Both of them are so in tune with the spirit, it's unbelievable! They are really awesome and I am super excited about them! For the month of April, we have 8 people scheduled with a baptismal date! Super excited to see what's going to happen! 

This weekend I am super excited for a couple things.. For my first birthday out in the mission field, but more excited for the opportunity to listen to general conference! I can't wait to see what they have to say! I know that we have living prophets and apostles here on the earth today and they really our the mouthpiece for god! I am so grateful for them, and grateful for the opportunity to be a missionary! Life's great :) 

Love you guys and hope you have a great week!

Hola Amigos :)

Hey everyone hope you all had a great week! Everything here in Liberty is going great! Saw lots of miracles this week! Can't believe I have been here since the new year! Time really does fly by! 

So this last p-day we went to an English members home to help out the kids and the farm. The kids are so awesome. All of them have needs and the mom just left the dad to deal with them on his own. I feel really bad for the guy but he really does try his best to make his kids happy. Anyways we had a great time and had a lot of fun! 

Me and Elder Johnson where riding our bikes down the street one afternoon and we look to our right and we see big giant pit-bull running straight at us and he is ready to kill!! Me and Elder Johnson where just sitting thinking ah man we are gonna die! Then out of nowhere we see the dog run full blast into a tree head on! The thing folded up like an a accordion and the sound sounded like he just got lit up by ray Lewis or someone like that. The dog turned around and went back to his house whimpering and what not, and we where like what the heck just happened haha! 

So last night we had the opportunity to have President Rascon (the guy from the news) come on a lesson with us to go talk to la familia Garcia. This is the family that we always do service for and the dad has a total man crush on President Rascon. The reason he has a man crush is because hermano Garcia decided to go to church one Sunday about 3 years ago and at the time President Rascon was in the stake presidency and he was there at their Elders quorum meeting.  Hermano Garcia told us that Rascon came in their asked the teacher to bear his testimony and from there on Rascon taught the lesson because the guy was reading straight out of the book. Hermano Garcia told us that the lesson he taught that day was the best lesson that he has every heard. President Rascon taught with the spirit he said and it was amazing! 

Well President Rascon doesn't know anything about this story, or about the giant man crush Hermano Garcia has on him. We taught

The lesson and President goes off in a very good way! He has the 2 kids committed to a baptismal date for April 9th with the dad baptizing them, and he made a goal with them to go to the temple later this year to get sealed as a family, and he wants to be there to witness all of this!  The two of them clicked really well and me and Elder Johnson just sat there and let him do his thing!  We talked with President after the lesson and we told him about the man crush and the story he told us, and right after we told him the story he pulled over and told us that he felt so spiritually impressed to go over to the ward that day and teach the lesson and he had no idea why! President then told us that that he had received an answer to the question of why he was supposed to do that! The lesson we had with that family last night was really 3 years in the making! The lord really does work in mysterious ways! 

After last night and everything else that has happened this week, there in no doubt in my mind that this church is true and that he really is guiding and directing his people! I hope all of this makes sense haha! Love all you guys and hope you all have a great week! 

Love Elder Stringfellow
