So all this week has been traveling! OH and their are changes in the mission!
So to start off, Monday we get a call from our Mission President and he says I want you and the rest of the Elders up in Whitehorse to drive to Skagway (2 hour drive) and then Ferry to Juneau, we are sending you down here for Interviews! So on Tuesday we started Packing and then we get a call from President Beesley again and he said that the Ferry is broken..... ( I thought that we were not going but)... since the Ferry is broken we are flying you down to Juneau!!!!!! Me and Elder Hayes were Jumping up and down because we were soooo excited!!! President asked if we could do that and we said YESSSS! So Wednesday morning we Drive down to Skagway and we take a Bush Plane From Skagway to Juneau! So instead of going on a ferry and having it be 6 to 8 hours it was only 45 min! We get to Juneau and then we unpack and we go to the church and we had a training like usual! Then we had Interviews on Thursday, and during the Interviews President told me that me and Elder Hayes will not only be serving in Whitehorse but we will also be serving in Skagway!!! (Skagway usually is only open during the summer because of all the tourists)( and we are only 2 weeks into the transfer)! He said that we will be living in the church in Skagway! That was way awesome! So Me and Elder Hayes are going to stay pretty busy This transfer! Then on Friday morning we Flew back to Skagway, and president told us to stay in skagway until Sunday and stay for church then leave after church! So on Friday and Saturday we went and knocked on a bunch of doors! We handed out about 30 Joy to the World DVDs and about 12 Books of Mormon! So that is how my week went!
