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.
I will be emailing my adventure in Ohio to friends and family and this blog will contain those emails.

A new Transfer has begun

and things honestly didn't start out the best

..... I can NOT wait to use a proper keyboard again, the ones these libraries have are way to small so I keep hitting all the keys i'm NOT trying to hit #Exgamerelderprobs
so we emailed as usual before having some fun as an apartment playing Frisbee until someone decided to run full speed in to a VERY solid picnic bench.. ouch. After we patched up elder Fifield we played the new Star Wars monopoly which is like WAY better than standard monopoly (think a cross between Settlers and Sorry, IT'S really fun) That evening we had planned to take our awesome solid investigator, Jason, to the ward FHE... well we got there and at first he was kinda hesitant to say he wasn't interested anymore, while we asked what made him change is mind, the reason walked up right behind us... 
basically his neighbor is an atheist because of the friend dying he blames a god he doesn't believe in anyway. what was really funny though was when he was shouting at us and said "GO BACK TO UTAH and worship Brigham Young!" (lets just say that's the clean version of our conversation) at which point we calmly explained He's dead and we don't worship him at all. which is when the Man (tempting to say child due to his behavior, people get weird when religion gets involved... ) basically surprise bear hugged Jason and whispered lies of the devil in his ear and walked off with him. that's the just of it. He also said something about how he had more faith in the bird poop on the deck railing than he did in Christ.. like I said people get weird when trying to avoid religion and more specifically the Spirit.
So because of that episode we went to Kyle's in hopes to take him to the FHE but instead we just taught him more about why god lets bad things happen to good people.

shesh if I did every day like this my mom would be Estatic.. XD

Didn't have district meeting because we had Zone meeting instead later in the week so we tried to contact down in North hill Akron and just find new people to teach but again no dice :P
we had dinner at the Joses' (i'm sure there is an accent in there somewhere but heck if I know where) They are a nice family but they've been out of town off and on for months so they are finally settling back down for now.

walking, knocking, waallking, knnnoooocking, no dice

ZTM on Planning effectively.. yep that's about the sum of the day..
Elder Taylor came here again and I discovered elder Holt was a gamer too Hahaha we are everywhere!
Did some service for a hoarder... so.. much... trash... like we are talking old phone bills before I was BORN. Oh well, hence the reason I LOVE minimalism in materialistic endeavors... My hard drive and flash drive clutter doesn't count XD

two words
Stress and rain
Stress due to problems with the Tallmadge north Elders and well try riding a bike in the rain and you can understand that one.

Church and since we didn't get to it till now Weekly planning :P such a long day inside but church was good :)

Love you all and Happy Mothers day Mom.... well I'll see you then anyway..

Elder Bone

Second Corinthians 7: 9-10

 Now rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing.
 10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
