Funnest p-day ever!

So first, last p-day was the funnest p-day of the mission so far! We played football, basketball, slack line, etc.. in Batavia with most of the zone. I will send pictures.

Then on Tuesday Elder Boatman came here to Brockport and we had so much fun! He is one of my favorite missionaries. We handed out 10 Book of Mormons that day, so a pretty good day.

Then, we had a meeting to train us on the iPad's so we will be getting Facebook back soon. I went on exchanges with Elder Coffey here in Brockport. We went to the prison and it was the last time because he gets out on Friday and he has really changed. He is going to fast for the last few days he is in there and he is hoping to stay on he right path.

Then, on Sunday I got to speak again for the third time in this ward! It was a pretty good week.

My last email deleted itself so I don't feel like typing another long one sorry!

Have a great week!

Love, Elder Daugs

Having a great p-day with the boys!

Visiting the Sites!

The Palmyra Temple from the Hill Cumorah

Hey guys!

So this week was pretty fun!

Monday was p-day and we had the whole zone in Brockport to play basketball and have lunch, etc... We have been doing lots of walking around trying to tell people about the Hill Cumorah Pageant and handing out Book of Mormons. We got three new investigators this week and a couple potentials. We had a couple good lessons with people like Jim, Elizabeth, and Lee and Mary Jane. The one with Lee and Mary Jane was really good and we usually have lesson at Brother Britton’s house so he can help as well. He is super knowledgeable with the gospel and he's only around 30. Right now he's writing this big paper on all of the different numbers throughout the bible and what they mean and how they connect with the Book of Mormon, and he's just doing this in his spare time for fun.

We had a good lesson with Joseph and we set a baptismal date for September 5th, so hopefully we can get him to do that. He did come to church this week with an inactive lady so double whammy.

Friday, we helped Bro. McNeese tear out his kitchen so it was just like when I used to help dad! So now he has an empty kitchen and no place to cook.

Saturday, we went to the sites with Lee and Mary Jane and they really liked it!! It was really nice that they could see all of the things that we had been talking about and before we were going home they wanted to go and walk around the temple and see it because we had been talking about it in a couple lessons and in Sunday school and they really like the idea of what we do in the temple. And there was a family getting married and getting pictures taken and they could see how happy they were so hopefully it made a good impression!

Sunday, was church and I got a candy bar and that's pretty much it!

Hope you guys have a great week!

Love ya!

This week was good as usual!

So Monday, we went to Greece for p-day and played basketball.
Tuesday, we had zone conference in Batavia and it was awesome!! I think we for sure have the best zone around! The mission set a goal to pass out 1000 Book of Mormon in the next three months and our zone set the same goal of 1000! It was great to have all of the trainings and to be with the other missionaries and president and his wife! I think it was probably the most spiritual meeting of my mission so far!

Then we had dinner at this place in Batavia called Big Paulys and tons of famous people have been there so it was cool to see all of the pictures on the wall.

Wednesday, we went to the senior center and I finished the hat finally!!

Thursday, we had a stake priesthood meeting on the Hill Cumorah so that was a once in a lifetime opportunity! Really cool!! And a couple of guys from our ward were advanced to the Melchizedek Priesthood that are either recent converts or preparing to go on a mission.

We have done lots of finding this week trying to hand out Book of Mormon. We usually just walk down Main Street, cross the bridge, walk down the canal and then back up Main Street for a couple of hours every day. We got six new investigators this week and handed out 14 Book of Mormons! So a pretty good week!

Saturday, we want to the prison and that was quite an experience!
Everyone was talking about he two prisoners who escaped, then the best part.... When we're going in I went through all of the safety things, metal detector, etc... Then they pulled me down this long hallway by myself to a room and did a "random" narcotics check! So they had to check all of my clothing, hands, feet, arms, etc.. Just to make sure that the Mormon missionary wasn't carrying any weed or crack?!

Quite the experience!

Today we have the whole zone in Brockport and we are going to play ball so it's going to be great!!!

The rain comes down pretty hard.  This is from the car to the apartment!  

Bulletins, letters, doodles, mazes, etc. that the family sends him.

Finished the hat!! Pretty cool!
