3/28/2011 "Chesapeake March Madness"

While we enjoy the AZ cool nights in the 59°'s and the days in the 80°'s, 
our favorite missionary is enjoying rain, snow, cold, cloudy 36° degrees days
as he said:  
"Chesapeake March Madness".....what is this strange pneumonon?
I didn't have a zone conference-- last week i went to a zone P-Day. Totally different. the zone just got together and had a B-Ball tournament. The "Chesapeake March Madness" as it were. Any who... we just had a big p-day and a bunch of Elders came.
Leadership training.... (for a greenie?--are they prepping him for something??)
This Last Week i did go to a Leadership Training Meeting. I went up to Richmond for 5 days! I was learning and taking notes from morning until 5:30 at night..... It was Rough. I felt super out of place at the beginning because everyone else was a District or Zone leader.... It was awesome though. I learned so much that my head is still aching. Pres. Perry and the Assistants gave "trainings" to us about different topics. I cant believe how much He knows about the gospel. (P.S. i wasn't done at 5:30 when we were done there we went out tracting in the local areas..... Ya I was TIRED. The area we were tracting in has the most hills. My legs about gave out each night i was done. But it was good) By the way, things are backwards out here. The days seem like weeks and the weeks seem like days. I don't know but i guess this is how time passes on a mission. It gets me all confused on the date all the time.
Then theres a little mention of just about lots of peeps, and a missionary thank you.....
Yes I know who Sis Meyer  is.(not spelled right) she was a teacher at Franklin when i went to elementary school. She had sent me 2 letters so i made sure to thanked her. She is so kind! No letter from Grandma or Grandpa..... Tell them both i love and miss them  and they are in my prayers. I still haven't received an update on the whole G'Pa hospital thing. Was he ok this time or what? So Hudson is the new one... He is a cutie! Tell Them to show him pictures of me so i wont be a stranger when i get back. Thanks for the package! Everyone loved the ties and we loved the goodies! And The conference cd's were awesome.
Requests??.... i have none, well maybe Lots of love -- i don't know if you guys can do that it is a pretty tall order. I am just doing so doing good I don't need much, but if anything comes up i'll let you know. 
Love you all and hope your doing good. 
Signing off from good ol' Deep Creek

♥♥♥ of Pictures!

Even though these are a little old (from the MTC) 
an old picture is better than no pictures right?
Hum... but what about when they are in an envelope
specifically addressed to "JOHN ROGERS!!!"
you do detect a little {{{{ jealousy}}}}  YES!!!

3/13/2011 Three Month Mark--really?

What seems like a short time to Koltn seems like an very long time for us back here in AZ!
I can't believe it time has flown. ya i remember Klete leaving on St. Patty's day. That's actually the first thing i thought of when i realized it was coming up.  Can you believe i will have been gone for 3 months on the 15'th! Wow time is going fast!
   Man i would give anything to have a dry 80 or 90 degree day! If there is one thing i have learned out here it is that i know where i want to live when i get older. Not out here..... Super cold and humid in the winter then Super hot and humid in the summer. Oh then it rains out of no where then the wind blows like crazy! I would love some good old dry heat!

And unlike the rest of the world!!! AZ doesn't feel it necessary to change time zones to Daylight savings.... but in Chesapeake here's what its :
It was weird doing the whole time change too. I was soooooo tired on Sunday But we got to here form Elder Jensen from the 70. His talk was Really awesome. I finally got use to how the day was getting and now when i wake up it is dark out (it was light out at 630 before).
and the work progresses slowly!  
We have taught lessons to a bunch of less actives and a few investigators. That's whats going on. Nothing new is going on just casing our tails trying to find people. thats why there are no updates. Because there isn't anything new. Me and Elder Buse are good for the most part nothing big we get along just fine. We eat well people feed us a few times a week so it is nice.
The needs of a missionary are few... but important!  
 If you send music try and get the "Single's Ward" and "The RM" sountracts. If you cant i don't really need anything.    The clothes are fine nothing sense that rip the first day out here.

In Elder Rogers Neighborhood, things are a little comical too!  
PS There was a sign outside of a baptist Church that said " WALMART ISN'T THE ONLY PLACE THAT SAVES!" Me and Elder Beus Couldn't stop laughing. It was awesome! There is a different church on every corner out here, and i mean every corner!
PSS The people talk so weird out here. They have a southern Ebonics that is soooo funny sometimes. EX. anything that is said with a st like straight or strawberry or street. they use a "k" instead like, "I went sKraight up the sKreet and  disKributed some sKrawberries!" It is soooo funny

I love you all And can't believe how big the kids are getting! They are all HUGE!!!!
Anyways i love yall and and miss you a ton! See you later.
