Email #58 - Scaring the Neighborhood

October 16, 2017
Montgomery, Alabama


Heyyyyoooooo!! This week was so fun! I feel like I say this every week but I don't have a ton of time. But I do have a few funny missionary stories for you.


First off, the other night Elder Oldham and I had a few appointments fall through, and then our back up plans fell through so we went to plan C which is usually knocking el mundo. Anyways! We started knocking and it was about 7:15 PM and we knocked on the first door and nobody answered. We got to the second door and nothing. At this point, Elder Oldham and I are just starting to get frustrated. We knocked on the 3rd door, and this lady yells, "Who is it?" "It's the missionaries!" "Who?" "The Missionaries!" "Who?" a little slower this time. "The Missionaries." Then a younger child who was probably 10 years old said with the deepest voice he could muster, "Who is it?" "It's the Missionaries!" "Who?!" "The Missionaries!" We then heard footsteps running away while the child was yelling, "AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!" It was hysterical! They soon after opened up and we were able to talk to them for a minute. It turned into a great lesson. As we were leaving, the mom said to us, "You guys should wear some lights or something when you are out at night!" haha! The best part is that we are going back tomorrow to go see them! ha!


*Fast forward to the next door that we knocked on* After about 30 seconds after we knocked and were about to move on, a man walked out his side door and said, "Not you guys again..." I said, "Hey! We're not that bad! ha!" He then said, "I'm catholic, so y'all are heathens!" "What?! We're heathens?" "yeah!" We ended up talking to him for a minute and were able to get him laughing which was good, but it was pretty hysterical! I've never been called a heathen yet out here.


This Sunday we had Stake Conference here in the Alabama Montgomery Stake and it was great! Bishop Dean M. Davies was here and he had some amazing thoughts. Most of the meeting was centered on the family. It really is essential to have a strong central unit in the family. The home needs to be a place of refuge and a place of peace. That is something that was always taught in our family from Mom and Dad and I'm extremely grateful that they taught the importance of good family relationships. I'm extremely thankful for you all, for your love and support you show me. I pray you all have a great week!

Email #57 - Hurricane Nate

October 9, 2017
Montgomery, Alabama

Family! I'll be honest... I don't have my notes, and I honestly can't remember a thing we did this week. It's honestly just passing too fast. We did some service up in Birmingham for a Glady's Knight Fireside, and that was a blast! All the elders from Montgomery went up there and we spent about 5 hours helping set up for the concert/fireside. It was awesome! Other than that we did a ton of service and we had an exchange. We were able to meet up with a referral that we got from the Sisters in Troy, AL and we had a great lesson with him. His name is George and he had a lot of questions about the Book of Mormon that we were able to answer. It was a great lesson. Other than those few things, I'm kind of struggling to remember a whole lot of went on! You just get moving so fast that everything just kind of blurs into one.

On other news, we were locked in our apartment for about 24 hours this weekend because of Hurricane Nate. It was maybe the most boring and worst day of my life... I was about to go insane. I now know why Mom, and Dad always said, "Go do something outside." Because they knew that I'd go insane. haha!! Well I hope you all have a great week! Thank you for all you do! I look up to you all more than you know! Love y'all!

Email #56 - The Joy of Conference

October 2, 2017
Montgomery, Alabama


Wow! What a week! I hope it has been just as amazing on your end.  I don't know where to start.  This one might be a little longer... I have to make up for all those lousy weeks where I didn't have much to say.  I guess starting with earlier in the week.


Elder Oldham and had a few extra minutes between lessons so we went tracting. We were knocking doors in a Spanish Trailer park and we had a lot of people who would stop moving as soon as we knocked and then you'd see the blinds open a little bit with white eyes staring at you through them. But no answers. We got to about the 10th or 15th house and a woman named Raquel opened up and welcomed us in to meet her family! We shared a quick Restoration message with her and she said she wanted us to come back. We went back a few days and she opened right up and we were able to answer some of her questions.  After listening to conference this weekend It was amazing to hear others testify of the divinity of the Book of Mormon as well as Joseph Smith. I loved it.


During the Saturday afternoon session we were able to watch the session at a members house with an investigator. The session was exactly what she needed to hear.  God always knows what we need to hear and how he can help us.  It was one of those experiences seeing God's hand in our lives as well as others.


As we were sitting in the Priesthood Session with everyone in the chapel, we were in the middle of Elder Richard J. Maynes talk, and BOOM! The power goes out. He was just getting to the good part of his story too.... Ugh.... So everyone shot out of the parking lot going home to finish the session but we didn't really have anywhere to go. So we went and visited a less active and then went home.  But then I had a brilliant idea! Let's get up early. Go to the Family History Center at the church and put the session over the projector. So my companion and I, as well as 4 other elder in the area, all got up early Sunday morning to go watch the rest of the Priesthood Session. It was great. After we finished watching it, we went to another members house where we were watching the Sunday morning session in Spanish with all the Hispanics in the ward. We got there, we got everything running and... Bam... Internet goes out... So... we just made Carne Asada instead and had a big lunch. ha! The Hispanic culture is like my favorite. Then the last session was BIIIGGGGG!!!! We called up Morgan Lee (Who I have talked about in the past. He is Inactive and like a Rock....) I called him on Thursday afternoon and asked him if we could watch the Sunday Afternoon Session with him because we didn't have a place to watch it. He said no to us because his son was being rude and is grounded. We were pretty bummed... But then we were waiting for Zone Conference to start on Friday and I get a call! Guess who it is... Morgan Lee! He apologized and said, "It sounds like a wholesome activity for our family so we'll see you guys at 3 on Sunday." So we went over there for the last session. It was super amazing! It's been amazing to see how he has changed since I've been here. He is now talking about going to church. I really hope that happens! That would be so great!


So I guess to sum up our weekend, we missed a lot of General Conference so for P-day we are going to be watching a lot of what we missed to catch up.


Before the power went out at the Priesthood Session, I was sitting there thinking about the family. I closed my eyes and went home thinking about all of my brothers and my Dad sitting around me at the Stake Center listening to conference. It felt like I was there with all of you. Thank you for the love and prayers.


I wanted to share a few of the things that I enjoyed from Conference. There were a few quotes from the Bible that I've been thinking about. "Lord, I believe. Help thou mine unbelief." How can we truly submit our will to the Father? How can we truly rely on the Savior? One of my favorite talks was Elder Maynes. He talked in the Priesthood Session about "Integrity of Heart." One thing that really hit me was that we must earn His trust by putting our trust in Him. Trust is essential for a Christ centered home and life. We must never compromise our integrity. At times, trust and integrity are overlooked, but we must always be honest, and trustworthy in all we do. I remember a few different topics that were talked about, and were some of my favorites. Family, Spiritual Wellness, and the Book of Mormon. Elder Russell M. Nelson talked about the Book of Mormon and that was a great one as well. He proposed 3 questions about the Book of Mormon.
1)What would life be like without the Book of Mormon?
2)What would you know without it?
3)What would you not have without it?
Those are some very inspired questions. It really makes you think about how much of an impact that specific book has had on your life. It really is the word of God. When we read it everyday, we come closer to our Father in Heaven and we have an increased knowledge of the love our Savior has for each of us.


This week was a great one! I hope you all learned a lot at General Conference and are able to build on what you learned and were inspired by. Thank you for your steadfast examples of our Savior. Love you all! Have a stellar week!

Email #55 - Miracles Everywhere

September 25, 2017
Montgomery, Alabama

Dearest Family! I really apologize but I don't have a whole lot of time today. We've got a lot to do! but this week has been pretty darn great! I've loved it! So on Wednesday I said goodbye to Elder Hasleton and I got an elder straight out of the Mexico MTC. His name is Elder Oldham. He is from Spanish Fork, UT. So it's been quite a blast since he got here. When I was in the Trainer Meeting before Transfers, President Sainsbury said to me, "Take your companion out tracting tonight okay?" So we went out tracting on Wednesday night for a while. We tracted for about an hour and a half and didn't have more than a 30 second conversation with anyone. It was a little frustrating. I said to Elder Oldham, "Maybe we should say another prayer." He liked the idea and we said a quick prayer to our Father in Heaven. Afterward we continued tracting and the next door we knocked on opened up and welcomed us in. We taught her about the Restoration. She thoroughly enjoyed it. We have a return appointment with her tonight. So we are really excited for that. It was truly amazing to see how the Lord looks after us and answers our prayers. It's been a great ol' time with Elder Oldham since he has been here! We've seen many miracles this week. 

Everything has been going well! Montgomery is just a great place! I love it! That's about it for the week! Love you all! Have a great week!

Email #54 - Knowing the Truth of The Book of Mormon

September 18, 2017
Montgomery, Alabama


Dear loved ones,


I hope everything is well.  This week has been a pretty amazing week! I've really enjoyed it. So to start out, last Monday evening was when Hurricane Irma hit us. I'll be honest, I know it got really bad in a lot of places especially in the Caribbean and in Florida, but we didn't see anything... We were told by President Sainsbury Monday afternoon that we needed to be in our apartments until further notice. In Montgomery we had maybe half an inch of rain. It wasn't anything very crazy here. So we are all safe and sound.  It was quite the evening in the apartment though. We did a lot of working out, and eating, and working out, and eating. Pretty good mix right?! haha! It was quite the night!


On Tuesday evening we were driving to the church building with the other Carter Hill Elders and they got a call. "Bueno, Quiero hablar con los misioneros." They immediately handed over the phone to me. I started having a conversation with one of the Less Actives in our ward that we hadn't been able to get a hold of. He called us wanting to meet up with us and we were able to catch up with him this week and it's been a great experience. He told us that he wanted to get back to church and start reading his scriptures everyday. At church this week there were more Hispanic members than I've ever seen at church here. It's really been amazing to see the work paying off.  I love the Hispanic people. They have a very strong desire to follow the Savior and to learn from Him.


I've also mentioned in the past one of our Less Active friends named Morgan. We stopped by this week and we were able to have a great conversation with him. It's been amazing to see that as we have served him and been able to be there for him, he has grown and really come to know our Savior a little more and more everyday. It's really been an amazing thing to see.


This week we had a lesson with one of our friends Fred at the church. He has really been struggling and he just needed some comfort. He has been taught just about everything that we as missionaries teach. We shared with him in Alma 26:27-28 where it talks about Ammon and how he says, "Now when our hearts were depressed, and we were about to turn back, behold, the Lord comforted us." We promised him that as he would read the Book of Mormon with a true desire to know if it is true, that he would receive the answer that it is. As I have been going throughout all the endeavors of the week I have been thinking about how knowing the Book of Mormon is true and that God is looking out for us can really change us. The true knowledge of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and the love of God can change a persons whole life. They become more like our Savior as they continue to abide by the teachings of the book. They grow. They change. They become disciples of our Savior. The knowledge of those two truths can motivate, give hope, and build faith in this gospel. It's been amazing to see the power of the Book of Mormon work in others lives. This gospel is true. It's all true. He loves us. The Book of Mormon is the most correct book there is.


I love you all! I hope you all have a great week! You're in my prayers!

Email #53 - The Miracle of Service

September 12, 2017
Montgomery, Alabama


Dear Family,


I hope you are all well and that everything is going great! As I was thinking about my email last week, I realized that I forgot to mention one person in our family that has been a great example to me in my life. Sorry Preston! When I think about Preston I think about when we were both sick and we played "Baulder's Gate." Maybe for a little too long... but I appreciate the time we were able to spend and how we were able to get to know each other a little bit more. Thanks for spending time with me.


This week has been quite insane. We have done soooo muccchhhhh serviceeeeeeeee! On Monday, we spent a few hours at a members house helping her with her lawn. On Wednesday, we helped a Less Active who I have mentioned before named Morgan. He has been trying to get a fence built before the hurricane hits. So we were over there helping him out building a fence for a solid minute. ha! Then on Saturday we helped out Steph with her lawn and did some work for them. That was a miracle. Her husband Tory has been very stand off-ish to us since we have been coming over to teach Steph. I haven't had more than maybe a 15 second conversation with him. When we were over there to help, I engaged in a conversation with him while we were working which turned into a very solid conversation for about an hour. It really was amazing! He just opened up and was telling me all this stuff about him and you could see it on his face that he was having a good time. It was really amazing. It's amazing how service can help those in need and help them spiritually. Service is how we show our love. We can serve others to show them that we appreciate them and that we are grateful for them. It's been really amazing to see those here in Alabama come to know the Savior as we have served them. Morgan is a great example of that. He was very cut-off when I first got here. As we have continued to serve him over the last 3 months, he has become open and ready for spiritual conversations. It's been amazing to see. I want to tell you all that service really does open the windows of heaven and allow others to see clearly and have a spiritual experience. When we serve others, we really are serving God.


I love you all and I hope you all have a great week! Be safe!

Email #52 - We Cannot Wait to Show our Love

Sept 5, 2017
Montgomery, Alabama


Family! It's been a great week. We've been crazy busy but I've loved every minute of it! This is one of those weeks where everything has moved so quickly that I honestly can't remember a whole lot that went on. It's been crazy fast. We were able to do a lot of service this week and it was super great. I have found that service has really become one of my favorite things out here. It always lightens others loads and helps us be able to serve and find joy in service.


I wanted to share a little story with you all. Last night while I was laying in bed trying to fall asleep, I was reading a book that was given to me from a member in Huntsville by Grandpa V. I was reading a story about some of Grandpa's last words that he had with one of his friends before he passed away. I was thinking about this story last night as I was staring at the ceiling and realized, I cannot wait to thank all of you for the love and support you have shown me and continue to show me. The relationships that are the most precious to me are the ones I have with my family. Mom and Dad, thank you for the 3 amigo years when it was just the three of us. Greg, Brian, Caleb and Preston thank you for the late night video game competitions and always being there for me. Megan, Kelsey, and Mimi, thank you for always having loving conversations with me when I needed them. Max, Laurel, Millie, and Scotti, thank you for hanging out with me and building forts. Jane, and Rudy, thank you for being a bright light in my life. I can't wait to spend more time with you two. Thank you family! I love you all and I pray you have a great week.

Email #51 - Listening to the Spirit

August 27, 2017
Montgomery, Alabama


Family! Hey I'm real sorry but I'm going to have to keep this pretty short. This week was pretty darn good! We were in Birmingham on Thursday for a Multi-Zone Conference with Elder Craig C. Christensen of the Seventy. It was amazing. He talked a lot about listening to the Spirit, and always referring to the Spirit in our endeavors. It really was an amazing meeting. That evening afterward, there was a Spanish Fireside for all of the Hispanic members across the mission and it was super great! We were able to go and it was quite amazing! This week in Montgomery has been a lot of insanity! ha! But I'm really sorry I have to keep this one short. I hope you all have a great week! Love you all!

Well this week was a short one huh?! haha! It's been a solid 4 days I think. It's so good to hear how you all are doing! I love hearing about all the great things you all are up to.  These last few days have been a little hectic to be honest.  We had English Class last night and only one person showed up so we are going to be doing a lot of contacting on the streets and at the mall this week.  That's the plan.


Yesterday we were sitting in church and I was thinking a lot about all of you and praying and hoping that you were all doing well and were happy. I started thinking about my future family. I feel that I really have come to know of the truthfulness of this gospel while I've been out here. It's been amazing to testify of the truth of all these things. We were out tracting yesterday and had nothing but doors slammed, and drunk people swearing at us, and I honestly loved it. I love knowing that I'm here testifying of our Savior, and yes I might be ridiculed and disliked, but I am here for the cause of Christ. I am his representative here and I have been called to bring others to the fold of our Savior. It really is amazing. So... back to me sitting in church, I was thinking about everything to come. Thinking about everything to come and of my future generations after me. I really don't want anything other than my kids to stay faithful in this gospel. I want them to know of a surety that Jesus Christ lives. I want them to know that the Priesthood really has been restored to the earth and that we have living prophets in this day and age. I love this gospel. I'm not sure where I would be without it. I know that He lives. I know that we can do anything with the help of our Savior. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that a man can come closer to our Savior by reading that book, than by any other book.


I love you all! I hope you all have a great week. I hope we can all come a little bit closer to our Savior this week and realize that He loves us more than we can comprehend. This is real. It's all real. He will come again and we are preparing for that day. He lives.

Email #49 - Relying on the Lord

August 17, 2017
Montgomery, Alabama


Hello everyone! This week has been another great one! We went to the temple this afternoon and we don't have a whole lot of time before we head back to Montgomery.


We had a few really amazing experiences this week! A few weeks ago, Elder Hasleton and I started a Scripture Study Class that is still kind of getting started and we don't have a whole lot of people coming but there are a few.  Last week the only one that showed up was Steph. (She was baptized about a month ago.) We hadn't been able to see her for about a week so it was super good to be able to see her come. We got talking and she proceeded to tell us all about everything that had been going on. I don't want to say anything that I shouldn't or give out details but there are a lot of family situations going on as well as a few loved ones that have died recently in her family. After talking for a few minutes she said to us, "I think Satan is really trying to get to me because he knows that I made the right choice to be baptized and turn my life over to the Savior, because all of this stuff has been happening since I was baptized." Wow... I was speechless. It is so amazing that she can recognize the influence Satan is having right now. She said to us, "I know that there is no way I can get through all of this unless I am constantly in touch with God, and praying to Him."  It was really amazing to hear her bear her testimony to us.


On other news, a few weeks ago we started English Class down here in Montgomery and we had a bunch of people this week. It was super good to actually have some people show up.


Also, I was doing some Family History work this week and I was searching and searching for names and I kept running across names that our extended family had already reserved and was working on their temple work! So S/O to all the Featherstone/Poelman people doing the Lord's work through their ancestors! It's really amazing that we are able to be apart of helping the kingdom grow and influencing others through temple work. So if you have a few minutes this week I'd really encourage you to get on familysearch.org and find some names that you could take to the temple!


Anyways! That's about it for the week. I hope you are all doing well and just tearin' it up. Have a stellar week. Love you all! You're in my prayers!

Email #48 - The Sweet Gift of Prayer

August 7, 2017
Montgomery, Alabama

Happy Monday Everyone! It sounds like it was a blast of a week.  It was so good to hear that my nephew Rudy was blessed this week! He is going to be a stud! Crazy to think he'll be walking when I get back.
This week has been so crazy. We spent a lot of time this week helping a member pack his Uhaul trailer and boy was that an experience. We were all pretty worn out after that one. After helping all day with moving, I looked back and thought about how we are called to bless those around us. There are so many opportunities to bless those around us if we will only take advantage of the blessings that God is giving us to be able to serve. At times the Lord blesses us with opportunities to serve, but it is our responsibility to take that leap into serving our God.


So on the more spiritual side of the missionary work this week, we visited a Less Active this week who we have been visiting a lot lately. We had an amazing experience with a man named Morgan! He is the son of the Stake Relief Society President here in the Montgomery Alabama Stake and he has been Inactive since he was about 14. The missionaries have been visiting with him nearly every week, if not more, for the last 7 or 8 months. Since I have been here in Montgomery, we have been doing a lot with him, and have started to teach his wife. This week they invited us over for dinner. We had a great time talking to them, and about 2 or 3 minutes before we were finishing up the meal and were going to share The Restoration with them, Morgan's Mom who is the Stake Relief Society President walked in. We then visited for a few more minutes and asked her to stay for a short lesson with Morgan and his wife. As we went through the lesson, we asked her to share her testimony and her thoughts about the things that we had shared. She bore witness of the divinity of the Book of Mormon and that we can come nearer to the Lord by abiding by it's precepts. It was a very spiritual experience. At the close of the lesson, I turned to Morgan and said, "Morgan would you be willing to say the closing prayer?" He originally said he didn't feel comfortable but we persuaded him into saying it. He said one of the most sincere prayers I have ever heard. This man has not prayed in over a decade, struggling to know if God is really there for him.  He received the answer to his prayer. He prayed to know and feel of the love of God.  He prayed for us….that we would be safe in our travels, and he prayed that we would be able to recognize the spirit in our lives. As we closed and left the house, you couldn't help notice the impact that prayer made on his life. We walked out with his mother as she was leaving as well, and she said to us, "I have never heard my son pray like that. Thank you so much for your hard work and the love you show toward my son and his family." It was an amazing experience that strengthened my testimony of the supernal gift of prayer that our Father in Heaven has given to us. It truly is a blessing to pray to our Father in Heaven. My plea is that we all take time to "counsel with the Lord" (Alma 37:37) and make each one of our prayers everyday to pray for those around us and for opportunities to grow and learn. Our Savior is pleading that each and every one of us pray to the Father for His help and His guidance. "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." (Philippians 4:13)


“Along your pathway of life you will observe that you are not the only traveler. There are others who need your help. There are feet to steady, hands to grasp, minds to encourage, hearts to inspire, and souls to save.” -President Monson


I pray that you all have a great week, and find joy in the scriptures, and in following the example of Christ. Thank you for all the love and support that you show me as I am here in Alabama representing our Savior. I love you all and I appreciate each of your examples to me. Keep smiling and having fun! Love you!

Email #47 - One Year Down

July 31, 2017
Montgomery Alabama


Family - I hope you are all doing really well. Wow! What a week. It's getting to the point where it really is just flying by.  I just feel like I put my head down and get to work and then the next thing I know I am writing another email home. Pretty crazy... So this week has been pretty darn quick... It's been a pretty long week to be honest though... We didn't see much happen this week. We've had a lot of appointments get cancelled on us.  So that's always super great... But anyways, I was thinking about a few quotes that I've heard while I've been out on the mission.


“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” – Frederick Douglass
“Success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.” – Winston Churchill
“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.” – Henry Ford


At times things are super great and at other times, things aren't going your way. I've been thinking about those tough times in our lives and how they don't stick around but we often need to put on our game faces and push through. This week here in Alabama was one of those weeks. We didn't see a whole lot, and we weren't able to visit with a whole lot of people. But those are the weeks that you show who you really are. Are you willing to push through for the cause of Christ? Are you willing to pull and put everything on your shoulders for the cause of Christ? Are you willing to stand up for our Savior? Do you "Dare to Stand Alone?" as President Monson says. These are the times that we are given to show what we have; to show how dedicated and how willing we are to do the will of Jesus Christ. Yes, it has been a pretty rough week when it comes to missionary work, but those are the times when we are able to show the Lord how willing we are to give it our all for the cause of Christ. I'm so thankful for these hard times.  We are able to grow and learn from these times. I have often said, "What good things come from things being easy?" We can't learn if we aren't being tried and we aren't being challenged. I feel like I have become truly thankful for those hard times. I have become thankful for the trials that we are given to help us grow and truly become "unshaken" in our testimonies as Jacob and Enos were, and to help us learn to give it our all for the cause of Christ.


Thank you all for your support and your love. I'm thankful for your examples and your steadfast testimonies in our Savior. I pray you all have a great week. Please send my love to all of our loved ones. Love you all!
