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.

The Holiday is Underway

My Second Christmas season in Ohio and My last one as a missionary, kinda crazy how fast the time has flown by

Ohio on the other hand hasn't quite made up it's mind on what it is going to be doing weatherwise 
I mean it snowed last sunday but it was 60 degrees this sunday so you know 
it's weird

Things are going a bit better especially in the district and everyone is excited for #LIGHTtheWORLD and all that as well as christmas conference

I don't really know what else to add here 


Love you all from Ohio
Elder Bone

Happy Thanksgiving

The leaves have changed here in Ohio

and thanksgiving for this year is in order
I am so thankful for this unique chance to speak of the one that spoke the greatest words of compassion 
of thanks
of hope 
of the chance of the brightest future
Jesus the Christ
the Hope for us all 
for almost 2 years 
I've sought to teach others of the Hope That God has given us all
He sent his Son
to save us all
To Him we are all indebted
and all he asks
"come, Follow me"

So give thanks this Thanksgiving
for without Him all hope would be lost
I love you all back home
and know that no matter what
no one is lost to the Lord
Elder Bone
Thank you all for the care and concern regarding my downhearted last letter 
the week in question was not the easiest but fear of the unknown was only a magnifier so thank you all for the hope you shared with me 
I love you all
and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

This week has been some major ups with the work but some insane crushing downs with what is going on around us 

I don't know what to do or think about 
I'm trying to stay focused on the work but literally everyone brings up the election

aparently we are to swear in a man that has less qualifications than a piece of cheese 
and is so blatently sexist and racist it's not even funny


I don't even know what happened

the work has been moving forward as we finally have some investigators to work with and they are progressing decently

that's nice

Love you all
stay safe!

so this week was interesting 
we had President Interviews and that thankfully helped with some of the difficulties I've been struggling with in this area
he provided some solutions and so far they are helping so that's good

sorry I'm on a weird laptop so typing is really draining on my hands right now so this might be a brief letter

I've been rereading Jesus the Christ and I've been pondering the words of the saviors parables
it was such a radically different way to teach simple truths. In those parables are layers that each reveal a different depth and direction without losing the simplicity of the gospel though

they make me look at life differently 
and see the hand of our great creator just a little more clearly

(that or my mind is so prodigiously empty that nothing can stop me from seeing it)

still a geek and always will be 

Love ya all
Elder Bone
