Hello Rogers Family!!! Happy 4th of July! (really the 5th)
Things are good here at:
Cypress 47 Terrace apt.D
Newport News, VA 23608
New area (Newport News 2nd ward) new everything. So this ward just baptized a person and there are NO investigators right now...none... We (Me and Elder Swanson) are starting from scratch. Well not scratch but close to it. A lot of tracting and meeting new people. There is a Military base in our area called Ft. Eustis. That's right we cover a military base! No tracting but we still teach people there and do special family home evenings. Our companionship actually splits up and one of us goes to the base and one goes to the normal ward. I think i am going to take the base. That way he has a lot of members and i can help the senior couple (elder and sister Elkins, In my district) They said they like my drive and with there help we are going to change some things and make it more missionary minded.
The bishopric is changing on the 16th. That's right a new bishopric in the ward. EVERYTHING IS NEW! hahaha
Well we are in a car. It is totally weird! I miss being on a bike a little. But then i step out in the heat and remember how much of a blessing a car is.
Elder Swanson played football and is a lot like me! It is cool having a comp that has the same interests. You can tell he is new but he is doing good. Esp. for being in this area for this to be his 1st area.
Our apartment is nice! Super glad about that. we live in a little complex that is ok Well at least i thought it was ok until 2 days ago. well let me tell you why i THOUGHT it was ok.
Sooooo you know how my bike got stolen..... Well the GPS i bought out here..... Yep it got stolen too... We parked outside our door (We live up stairs) and we ran up to drop something off inside and within 30-60 sec. someone opened the door stole the GPS the stand and the charger and left. At least the didn't take the car i guess. But now it is all by a good old map.
So the 4th was different out here. We had a HUGE thunderstorm and ALL the fireworks where canceled. But Bishop took us out for ice cream.
