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.

Wednesday, January 4, 2017


haha I remember back when I was reading all the old Popsci articles about 2017 and how we'd have phones that charge wirelessly, cars that can drive themselves. Alternate reality gaming. and thinking that's a cool idea that would never take off....

The future is here 
and it's pretty awesome!

I also remember when I started my mission as a wee lad in Lisbon Ohio just 19 years of age thinking that 2017 would never come, that I was to be eternally stuck in Ohio as a missionary. Then came 2016 and all the good and bad with it from Elder Fifield to Elder Whipple and now it feels as though it's all come full circle as i'm back only an area away from where it all began

life is funny like that 

This week has been really weird with the whole Preparation day is now on wednesday change so I guess I'll start at Wednesday, because I have been heavily requested to add more details to these letters again so...

Wednesday started out like any other.. just another day that we drove and drove and drove some more. although I suppose wednesday really started at 12-2 when Elder Nelson kept us both up because he procrastinated packing.. :/ and he has A LOT of stuff. anyway we packed up the car at about 8 and drove to the ZL's Apartment in Youngstown where we moved all of Elder Nelson's stuff out of the Rouge and into the Truck and then we all loaded up into the truck and drove to cleveland for a total of about 3 hours of drive time now :P
when we got there Elder Nelson and I said our goodbyes and he got in the car with Elder Butterfield to go to Wadsworth... and I then proceeded to chase them as they left the parking lot so I could grab the keys to the car that Elder Nelson still had XD everyone was laughing in the mission parking lot where all the transfers take place. good thing i'm in shape!
I then met Elder Lau (pronounced like loud but without the 'D" at the end) and he's originally from Hong Kong so that's pretty awesome and he speaks English pretty fluently besides the thick accent. 
I got to hug Elder Ogle goodbye as he finished his mission and now is living life up back in shecaaago XD  so that was cool,  (side note, I love how google spell check actually recognizes that as chicago)
OH and I met Sister Page who apparently is related to me though Tomas Independence Page and is also serving here in the OCM! so that was Kinda Cool
Then we drove back home all 3 hours of it before Elder Lau and I had to go... to.... brain come on I know I left last week's planner at home.... BROTHER DOUGherty's house thats right ... thanks brain you da best

anyway we visited with Brother Dougherty and headed home had dinner with mushroom and veggie soup (didn't have a whole lot to work with but Elder lau liked it alot so it works)

Thursday we weekly planned an I was so excited to actually get things going again here! 
we did a lot of contacting that night though so that was fun as well

Friday... what did I do friday........ 
no clue
probably just a lot more contacting

saturday.... we did yet more contacting.... I think.... come on brain

Sunday, Church was weird again this week with only having Sacrament for the second time in a row, I'd never thought I'd say this but I MISS Third Hour! 
after shortened church we headed out and did some contacting, and some more contacting, and then our appointment flamed so yet more finding! yep that sums up new year's day 

Monday was honestly a bit of a drag as we all were expecting to have P-day but then remembered that's not till wednesday now but I'm sure we will all get adjusted to that sooner rather than later. so we spent the day just trying to find people and meet Less actives 

Tuesday we saw Sister Hall, a really nice lady in a care center just down the street from us, we just talked to her about Alma the younger and how we all like he did Look to Christ and live (#EMCYC20whateveryearitwasweusedthatasthethemebutIdorememberthebookmarkandthescripture) (<--- this, this is why I don't do hashtags)
we also saw Roy Rainbow again after struggling to see him with all the holiday madness he had at work 
then we saw the Lawsons who are still awesome!

and that takes me to now!

Love and

Elder Bone
