October 16, 2013 GOOD AFTERNOON

How is everyone doing.  

So transfers have come and gone.  I am sadly leaving Genova.  I really am going to miss these people here.  I really know that I could have stayed till the end, but I am moving on.  Great.  I am going to Pavia.  Its going to be a good time.  I am going to be district leader and I am happy about that.  Finally something to do. Something to keep things going.  I am glad that I am getting the opportunity to have some responsibility again.  Its good.  

We taught some pretty good lessons this week.  Nothing really to some new investigators because we are having hard time finding some here but that is okay. The ones we did teach, we had members there.  It was awesome.  I am glad that they were there.  They actually brought their friends.  

Time to do some work.  I miss you guys.  Just nothing really happened this week.  I will tell you some good stuff next week.  

Love you guys

October 9, 2013 WEEK 11!!!

Hey everyone

Things are good here in Genova.  We have had a good time here with the members and as missionaries. We are trying to start a brand new wave of member missionary work.  I know that its more than just 2 missionaries, but I think that we can start someting good.  I just loved General Conference.  Once again, we had amazing talks coming from every which way.  I loved Hollands.  I loved Uchtdorfs. and you cant go wrong with the prophet.  Things are good.  Got some answers...and I am definitely happy with it.  

We are getting close here to transfers, its next week.  We will see what happens.  I am almost 100% sure I am gone.  I am in Genova now for the most time, other than one other missionary.  He has been here for 9 months.  FUN!!  Anziano Gibbons, good guy, same group.  We are riding home together.  

I just want to say thanks to everyone for the thngs that you all do.  YOu are great.  Just letting you know.  

Love you all

October 2, 2013

So this week had its ups and downs.  It wasnt like super awesome, but we did have some cool stuff.  our investigator just kinda fell off, we didnt hear from him at all and so he is just kinda wash right now.  The other day though we had an awesome lesson with some guy that we founnd in Area Book.  It was the most interesting and fulfilling lesson that I have ever taught.  We talked about a lot of things, and i realized early that he was very smart, and he needed something more than a very simple lesson, somthing to really tick his brain and get the spirit working in him.  Sometimes there are the people that need that.  So when i was teaching about the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ, I talked about his baptism and how important it was that he went to John the Baptist, (authority) and we spent a little time, discussing that.  We cleared up all that and went on with the lesson.  i didnt know why it was such a huge thing that spirit wanted me to teach that.  As we continued talking, we got to the bap invite and i invited.  That is why.  He was trying to reason himself out of it, but in fact, the way that he was thinking reasoned himself right into it.  He knew that he needed to accept, and the spirit was super storng telling him...and then right before he said yes...ring ring.  The phone went off, and he was out.  He answered it and started to talk and such.  Its okay.  next time he will accept.  

Other than that, we are doing well.  we are just chugging forward with our work. Doing all that we can.  That is what the lord asks, and that is what I have to give.  

I hope all is well.  I love you guys

September 18, 2013 WEEK 14

Good Morning everyone

Its Anziano Treadway here in Genova.  I hope that everyone is doing great.  I am doing great.  i am pretty tired but that doesnt change that we have been working super hard trying to baptize.  We have been working with some people trying to help them out.  We are happy with the things that are going on.  Unfortunately with some events, we have lost basically all of our investigators, and so we are starting from base 1.  Its okay.  we are going to keep working hard and see what we can do in the next 4 weeks.  Its game on.  I love this city and the members and everyone.  We are doing a lot of member work and getting innactive members into chruch again, and to me, that is also really important.  Because we cant just keep baptizing with out the other people that are running away you know.  I hope that we can see some success.  I am doing great.  I just wish that all of you are doing great.  Life is good.  Still training.  Erickson is good.  We are getting along great.  I miss you guys

September 13, 2013 What a Week!

Good afternoon everyone.  

This week has just been one heck of a week.  BYU destroys TEXAS!! HAHAHAHAA!!!  Thats all that matters!!  Hahaha just kidding.  I havent changed in that aspect.  I still love when BYU wins.  So, what is new here.  Nothing really, no one in the apartment chagned, and my comp and I are getting along great.  We are working alongside eachother really well and we are finding new people and doing all that we can to see some miracles, and we are seeing them.  Our one kid is JUST BLOWING IT OUT OF THE WATER!  He is so awesome and reading every day and really seeing some miracles in the scriptures.  He just used some scriptures to text me this morning saying that he basically knows its true, oh that was the greatest feeling ever.  He is looking good, we are hoping that he gets things all settled for the next week, but we have somethings to do still.  I knwo that we are going to make it.  We prayed about that date, we know its right. Other than him, we are struggling, but he is really keeping me going.  I am loving working here in Genova.  I dont know if I am going to stay here for the rest of the mission, buit I would love to.  I really would love to stay here.  We will see what happens.  LIFE IS GOOD HERE; ITS GOOD THERE!!!  Love you guys.
