Oct. 3, 2016 in Exeter, New Hampshire

Hey Pals!

How are you both and how is the work going?

I am doing really well, this has been the best week so far and I've had so much fun as we've worked! The work is hard and it is discouraging at times, but you can have so much fun! I have been setting personal goals and have really had a super week!!!!!

Elder B. is great too, he was feeling sick for a day, but we still went and worked so it was good.

The work is going great!!!! One of the people we're teaching set a baptismal date this week! So now our area that hasn't had an investigator baptism in 3 years has 2 people's baptisms scheduled in the next 3 months!! :) We have had a lot of miracles and been blessed so much!! We plan to invite at least one more person to set a baptismal date this week, but if things went perfect we could potentially have 4 people set dates! Great things are happening here as we work hard!!! :)

We saw a bank charge from Seabrook which looks to be about 3 miles from the coast. Did you get to see the ocean?
And yes, I have seen the ocean!! :) We actually have to stay away from it unless it's cold outside cause there is a little college or something I think in the area. But I have seen it twice, we actually did our coordination last week on the roof lounging area of the assistant ward mission leaders really pretty apartment, in view of the ocean! It was so pretty and awesome!! It is a great area, and although I like big cities and this mission is mostly small towns, I love it! There are lots of pretty trees everywhere and the ocean is sweet!

It has been raining a fair bit here, like the last 2-3 days it's been a constant rain/mist! The mist out here is weird, it's like the sky is on the mist setting of a hose!!

So, I bought beer for the first time this week! Before priesthood session me and Elder B. went to a way good pizza place and got calzones. Elder B. got a Mountain Dew Code Red, and I usually just get water or lemonade, but I decided I wanted to be unhealthy and get a Mountain Dew Voltage. So I went and asked for a Voltage and the lady charged me $3! I thought that was expensive, but I had over $200 on my card cause I've been saving. So I sign the receipt and she walks over to the beer behind the counter and says,"Sorry, which one is Voltage again?" Haha, so some other ladies who worked there saw and told her that voltage is soda, so they gave me $2 cash back. So I bought a beer, on my missionary support card, under aged!! And they even had a sign behind the counter that says "We ID everyone". So ya, killing it as a missionary!! ;)

Sure love you all!! One last thought for all my missionary friends! I read these verses and it made me think of all of you.
Alma 17:13-14 "...they separated themselves and departed one from another, trusting in the Lord that they should meet again at the close of their harvest; for they supposed that great was the work which they had undertaken.
14 And assuredly it was great..."

Sure love ya all!!! :)
Elder Branch
