A church we found while riding to the church!

Sorry not much to say this week, except that it was a good one! My new companion Elder Write is a really cool guy! We were able to get the keys on Thursday, but we had to bike all the way down to the church the long way, (it is the long way because there are highways that we can't ride bikes on) which I enjoyed just riding my bike, but Elder Wright doesn't have a bike so he had to use this super old one that isn't the best working condition, so not the best ride for him! jaja  
We are still working with Joel! he has become one of my favorite investigators, but he has been having problems with depression lately and I want to help him out so much, but the spanish is stopping me sometimes, #LanguageBariers.  Speaking about Language I've seen myself improve lately, because I'm talking more in lessons, before it was mostly just Elder Webb because he was super talkative and also very good at the language, but now I'm talking more! ya!

Anyways that is about it for this week love you guys a bunch!

Love Elder Allen

Sunshine in my Soul

There is sunshine in my soul today, got the idea from one of Tanners pictures!

Sorry it has taken me so long to write, Monday was a holiday and yesterday was transfers! I'm staying in Pooler! Sadly we lost two of the boys, Elder Webb went to Auburn, and Elder Ludeman, and I'm really not sure were he is.... but Elder Raspy Caspy stayed one more, we will have lived six months together! crazy! I'm going to miss those guys! shout out to Elder Webb for being such a rad companion for four and half months! and another to Elder Ludeman for being able to fix anything and for also being pretty sweet! My new companion is Elder Wright, he is pretty rad and ripped out of his mind... so I finally worked out this morning... jaja!
Fun story! So the drive to Macon is like a 2 hour drive and the Mission President wants us to find rides from members. Anyways it took us forever to find a member to drive us, we finally found one in another ward, but we had to meet him at the church. So we drive down to the church and meet him there, he was a pretty nice old dude, but he also drove like the stereotypical old dude.... super slow! so it took a little over than 2 hours and 30 mins. to to get there! So the meeting happens and we start heading home right, well half way home I realize that I don't have the car keys, and I thought that I had left them in Macon so we all start frantically looking for key, can't find them anywhere! so we have to get the guy driving to drop us off at the house instead of the church, and I had to call the to man that is in charge of all of the cars to tell him that I lost the keys to the car.... He told me that he has extra, but that we will have to wait till Friday, because the mission president would be in the area on Friday, and that I would have to text the mission president to tell him.... but right before I text him I get this call from Auburn, it's Elder Webb, and has the keys!! jaja so me and Elder Wright are biking Elders until tomorrow jaja! 
anyways love you guys!

Fort, Lighthouse and Friends

The good ole CCM kids!! and most of the Spanish Elders!
Yes transfers are next week, and I'm almost sure that a lot of people are leaving... sad...

Yes all of us are doing very good, everyone has recovered from the flu, except for me because I never got it haha, #BestImmuneSystem.
This last week went really great! We went to this really old confederate fort, it was pretty rad! I bought some confederate money, also rad!
I be rollin' in dat Confederate dough....

The fort!
Then on Wednesday I went on an exchange with Elder Rivera, to be honest not the best exchange... But the next day we went to ZTM (Zone Training Meeting) I had to give a training on how to fill out baptismal records correctally, super aburriendo! jaja and then I went on another exchange with Elder Hatfield, he is pretty rad! So I had two exchanges in a row in two different places, meaning I wasn't home until Friday, but I didn't stay there for very long because we had to drive up to Macon to spend the night with some other Elders, because we had a meeting in Macon on Saturday and it takes two and half hours to drive there so President wanted us to stay somewhere closer Friday night. Guess who spoke at our meeting? Elder Neil L. Anderson of the twelve!! ya that was pretty sweet! We got to see him again on Monday because he spoke at our stake confreres! super lucky! so a pretty sweet week! oh and we also drove down the beach last Monday and climbed this huge light house! rad!!!
The Lighthouse!
That is about it, love you guys a ton!

This week was pretty great! New Years was super sweet! But we had a curfew of 6 o'clock because of all the drunk people and parties! jaja we pretty much just played games and stuff when we couldn't find anything else to do! I found a "cranium" games for like 3 dollars at a Goodwill store so we played a lot of that! Nothing else really happened new years....
Oyster Boil!
Elder Webb and Elder Casper were super sick this week, so me and Elder Ludeman went on a couple exchanges, it was really scary at first because I had to teach all of my Spanish lessons completely alone pretty much because Elder Ludeman only knows a couple of phrases in Spanish, but luckily I got a little help from the man up stairs!! jaja it was a confidence booster for me!

I fasted this week for my investigators to get answers and you know what happened that very same day? Two of our investigators that we hadn't seen for a long time were very upset and confused! and do you know why? because God hadn't given them an answer! So you know what we did, we prayed with them asking God for and answer, and after the prayer we just sat there in silence for a good 10-15 min. and you know what happened? All of there frustration with us and with God left and it was replaced by peace! They felt the spirit! This happened twice yesterday, it was amazing! They still don't have an answer, but I know for a fact that they can't deny that what they felt was the spirit of God!! Ya!

Finally I like to give a special shout out to all of my friends and family that send me letters and packages this season, it means a whole lot, thanks for the support and I love you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
