Ferry broke down but we went there on a bush plane!!!!

I am Feeling a ton better! Haha it feels sooooo nice up here it warmed up to 14 degrees and that is really really rare up here in the Yukon! So lucky me and not so much luck for you! Yeah about the members up here in Whitehorse.... President is not to happy with  their efforts! ummm that is all that I am going to say about that! Elder Hayes is doing great! You are going to get a good laugh at this one. Elder Hayes is from Las Vegas! So when people ask where I am from I say guess and they  of course guess Utah, they actually don't say Utah, they say Oh so you are from the Factory Eh? And then they ask Elder Hayes and he says Las Vegas! The People are Shocked! That is one awesome story about Corey and Brek! So Here is my crazzzzzzy week!  (The story about Corey and Brek is when they were headed to a family Christmas party they saw this man in a wheel chair shoveling his drive way so they pulled over and helped him finish it.)

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! 

Love Elder Russell
