Who I am, Where I am, and what is this blog?

Hello, My Name is Elder Parker Bone. I am a Missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
I am currently serving a LDS mission in the Ohio Cleveland Mission I will be serving for two years and will be returning home in Summer of 2017.

A Hike both Physical and Spiritual

Ok you can't actually hike much in Ohio. the closest to Incline I get is climbing the stairs in our apartment.
So after Emailing we went on a hike with the New Castle and New Castle West Elders as well as the Lisbon South Elders. We hiked the trail of Hopewell Furnace which had some Stunning rock formations and a really REALLY old Iron furnace at the end of it
After coming home we changed and had a wonderful Family Home Evening with the Clarks and the Springers a recently converted family. It was really great and we all had a great time! I do love the Clarks!
Tuesday we stopped by Sister Wallace and helped her with mowing the lawn before going to Sister Koopman's to help clean out a shed and the Attic.. It wasn't that bad but I still hate spiders and that didn't help matters.
Wednesday we went to a HUGE Half Mission Conference where Elder Bennett started by declaring "this is a Council; A Council of War" and for the next 6 Hours we were all taught by each other and by the spirit how we can Shake things up and really help hasten the work in Kirtland!  
I did go home however with Elder Roundy so we could have an Exchange with New Castle West!
Thursday was a fall though kinda day. I had hoped and tried to set up and plan a good exchange day but pretty much every meeting Fell though so we did stop-bys and I learned a lot about Elder Roundy and his Mission. He heads home the end of this Transfer though!
After Switching back in the mid afternoon Elder Parris and I went with Brother Hobbs our ward mission Leader to Home teach King (yes that is his actual first given name) Reed and his wife.

They live in a house that is Literally as old as Ohio. it was built in 1803! I mean they have obviously added on to it since then but the majority of the house is a luxury log cabin in the woods. 
we also met their little baby goats and I got a picture or two of them
Friday we Had our weekly Corrodination meeting with Brother Hobbs and right after we shared a message with them on how the Stake and our Mission President want to help all members find people to bring into the fold
After that we met with Chuck Hartman a 94 year old that seemed interested in knowing more about the gospel and we are meeting with him again tomorrow! you're never to old to learn!
Saturday was another day where everyone canceled on us last minute. in fact we got a call canceling an appointment as we drove up their driveway!
That night Elder Parris and I talked a lot about Missionary work and how crucial it is to the world. I am so glad I am worthy and able to serve for my Father in heaven!
Love you all and wish you well
Elder Bone
