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.

Even at 20 the work moves on!

For all who didn't get the memo I'm now officially Moved in! I mean not a teenager! (hope someone gets that..)

anyway yeah I some how made it to the age of 2 decades... weird 
but before that happened we had a whole week of stuff right.. so Down to the trenches

Got a hair cut at an actual place (I.e. great clips) for the first time on my mission.
Did some shopping and found a gem called Monopoly Deal calling my name from the dollar store so SCORE. (side note all of us now hate each other because of that game XD) 

Had our first district meeting with the new senior couple now that the Browns (no not that one) moved out and back to Utah. We had a great time getting to know the Newbold's and I some how dodged the discussion I was asked to give haha 
after lunch at the Newbold's our appointment with Obi canceled and Tom flamed us again :(
as did our dinner, but they just sent pizza to us instead :)

Had a bit of a flame-y day, started with us meeting with David, the skate shop owner, kinda talked about what makes the LDS church different, he still isn't investigating but he did read the Pamphlet we left him.
After that we went to see Bro Lynn but his kids had the flu so no go there.
We swung by Kyle and taught about the Sabbath day and why we go to church 
after that we went to Brother Snyder's for a Correlation meeting with the 4 of us (ZL's bailed for a bible study at  AU)

so we had weekly planning which is a necessary thing that can be REALLY hard to get though but after that we headed down to Akron, we met with Sister Sanford in her care center. after a short lesson with her we went to go see a few of the people we hadn't been able to find in our area, as we were about to get on our bikes this guy ran up to us and was like " Y'all Mormons?" so naturally we replied "yup!" and thus we met Scott who we taught the 5 minute restoration and he wanted to met with us again so we are seeing him tomorrow! 
on our way to see Obi we ran in to Dustin who we hope will want to learn more after Elder Fifield talked to him about how there is a God and we are his children and he Does want the best for us! after that we saw Obi in his shop and started talking to him when His friend/neighbor came in and saw us and we all talked together, he was a baptist turned Jehovah's witness turned non-denominational Christian (and will be turned Mormon when we are done with him XD ) he actually believes that the Trinity isn't really a thing and God and Christ are separate, we are hoping to teach him soon as well!
after that we tried to meet with sister Bland but no dice instead we just set up for Friday...

AKA exchange day for me! Elder Bennett and I mobbed together in Tal-west while Fifield and Bradshaw chilled in their area, we swapped at the Library after doing our progress Record and had some lunch with the ZL's we then walked to the Kliens and had a swift lesson before getting to the Bus stop to catch the 10 to Luka for our appointment with the Bland's all was going just fine until Elder Bennett, as we watched the bus drive away, said he left his wallet on the bus... so we then called the (really mean) dispatch lady and then beg a favor from the Zone leaders to pick it up for us. (thankfully they did)

MY 20th!!!!
spent the morning doing more Construction on the Watkins house than destruction this time. after that David bought a cake so we hung out for a bit at his shop (I may want to pick up long boarding when I get home...) After that we did some tracting and headed home to be picked up by the Stebel's for an awesome dinner of Chicken Pillows :) and a big Birthday cake

Met with Sister Hardy after chuch for lunch and then since our appointment with brother Luevano fell though we hung out with Brother Norton and helped him with the last touches on his almost empty house. 

Have a good week all! I sure did :) and thanks for all the Birthday wishes!
