Today was my first "Pday" in the Eatontown South Area and I had a solid day!  I went to Pac Sun to buy more winter stuff.  It is already starting to get cold here.  Just in case yals were wondering, I am still the same person and all my winter stuff came from Zumiez and PacSun.  After shopping Elder Whittby and I went and took pictures in a photo booth.  Haha we had a blast!

Today we did the usual Tuesday activities of District Meeting.  I went on exchanges with Elder Daybell.  He is a super solid missionary!  Super obedient and super diligent and the best part, he is a human being.  He isn't one of those missionaries that is super judgmental and looks at you like you are an apostate if you act like yourself.  We had a good day!

Today we had kind of a rough day.  We had to get our car fixed and we had to sit in Pep Boys for four hours waiting for it.  One of the members took us to Olive Garden Which was pretty good and that made our day a little better.

Thursday, 10/18/2012
Today we had Zone Conference.  I had a meeting with President Jeppson so we didn't get home until 7pm.  But we still managed to pull two lessons out of no where.

Today we did service and then I got super sick so we did splits for a couple of hours.  I still managed to find my purpose in being sick!  I got a super disobedient missionary that I am friends with, to promise to strive to be more obedient.

We taught four lessons today!  Elder Jester and I just power housed stuff!  I also had the opportunity to give Sister Johnson a Priesthood blessing and it just so happened to be the day that I promised to work harder.  I can honestly say, without a doubt in my mind that Heavenly Father took over that blessing and just told me the words to say.

Sunday, 10/21/2012
I was able to give another Priesthood blessing and it was just as awesome as it was yesterday.  We then did our weekly planning and it is definitely not as cool.  Haha!

Well there go have it!  Hope you enjoyed and I hope to hear from yals soon!  I haven't received any letters in fo eva!

October 1, 2012

Alright people of the West Side.  It's Elder Rodeback up in this breezy once again. J  I'm gonna throw y'all a curve ball.  I am starting it with questions from my Momma.  From here on out, email my mom any questions you have about the mission and I will answer them.  She sent four questions to me and they are:

1.  Did Junior get baptized?  Unfortunately he did not, the punk. J  He had to bail on church two weeks ago because he was sick.  As a result, we have to wait until the 14th of October which stinks super bad because he is so ready, it's not even funny.  It's annoying that he has to wait.

2.  Who are we teaching now?  Well, we are teaching Eric & Lateiffa, Kevin (he finally has a baptism date), Gensuca, Junior, the Bordes family, Pilar, Carline, Jennifer, and some less active members.

3.  What is the Branch like that we are serving in? HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!  Let's just use this for an example, yesterday we almost didn't have any of the Branch Presidency at church.  We have about 50 or 60 members and 40 to 45 are less active.  We usually have about 15 people that attend church.  It's absolutely brilliant! NOT!
4.  How long will I be in Elizabeth?  Well, the end of my second transfer is this coming Sunday.  I could possibly leave next week but I will most likely be here through one more transfer.  My companion, Elder Heward will leave next week.

Yeah, I like doing this because then I know what people want to hear about instead of blabbing on and on about things that no one cares about.  Haha!  I love you guys!  That's it for now.  I will give you a solid update next week. 
Peace from the East
