Would love Letters!

Braxton would love hearing from you, so drop him a line or two. :)

Braxton was able to spend some time with his zone leader this week and had a good time. They cooked good food (hamburgers and pasta), played games, got some sweet deals (Brax got a sweater for $7) and taught some people.

Braxton lost his knife that he got a year ago and wasn't happy with that at all. It kind of ticked him off. But, oh well "life goes on."

They were teaching a lady this week and saying everything very clearly to her. They constantly were explaining things over for her to make sure that she was understanding. Right before they started explaining the Restoration they asked her "so how does God put an end to the apostasy? calling what?" (correct answer being: a prophet, or someone to guide us) Her answer was "little birds". (that cracks me up! ha, ha) Braxton was wondering where in the crap did she get that idea. His zone leader had to put a pamphlet in front of his face because he was laughing. (I thought Braxton and the other missionary would just look at each other and bust up) Brax said she was a good lady though. (I'll be the one to say it then....she's a little off her rocker)

Brax found a family last week. A mom and two daughters. The dad usually doesn't allow anyone in their house to talk with them. It made Braxton a little nervous but the mother told him it was okay. The lesson went really well and they scheduled another one. That went great too and on the third lesson the father walked in. Braxton was sure they were in for it, but the dad just sat and listened. The father was fine with everything and even told the missionaries they could come back any time they wanted. (whew, Braxton was relieved)

Braxton gets a lot of girls yelling out "hey, boyfriend" and whistling at him but this week things went to far. Him and his zone leader where riding on a bus and a few girls got on and one dropped a bag of chips right by Braxton and slowly bent down to pick them up. (Brax looked away) The girls were sitting a few rows behind them and then moved up so they were sitting by them. The girl dropped her phone across the aisle, not once but twice. (crazy girl) Then Brax and his comp decided to go to sleep for awhile (it was a long bus ride). When they woke up the girls were taking pictures of them. You'd think that was enough. But an hour later just before the girls were going to get off the bus they moved forward and then turned around so they were facing the missionaries and just stared at them. Braxton thought that was about the weirdest experience. Not one word was ever spoken. (I'm just glad our prayers are being heard and answered and that Brax is being protected. Yes, even from girls)

It was a good week though. They taught quite a bit and had good experiences while they did. Brax has a leadership meeting this week and even though he looses a day in the mission he likes hearing from his Mission President.

Braxton still loves being a missionary! He loves his family too! We love him too!
