Portmore, Jamaica - New Pants/ New Comp

Hello everyone,
It has been a good week. My comp is pretty cool. We met this guy, and we taught him about the priesthood. He said he has to tell everyone that we are the only church with the priesthood. I ripped one of my pants this week. I bent over to pet a dog and they just split. haha So I'm going to find someone to sew them up. It has been pretty hot this week. When we are riding our bikes, my comp stays behind and if a dog chases me he will ride up and kick it. We haven't got any yet. haha. DJ and Akeem keep coming out with us. They keep telling us that there house is boring, so they want to come with us. haha They are great. 
I love you all, 
Elder Davis

Planning in the Dark - Portmore, Jamaica

Hello everyone,
We got transfer calls on Saturday. I am getting Elder Knight. Elder Gardner went to Freeport, Bahamas. I am staying in Portmore. This week we went on trade offs with the zone leaders. On Thursday, Elder Anderson bought us all food at the downtown grill. I think that is what it was called. It was super good. I have been with Elder Davidsen and Elder Poe. That has been interesting. haha The power went out last night. So, we planned in the dark that was fun. haha 
I love you all,
Elder Davis

The negril area got shut down, and I think the branch did also. They can go to church in Sav. It is just a 30 min drive. idk why I think it is just because it wasn't growing. Akeen and DJ are excited about their pringles. 
This is my district at our church in Portmore, Jamaica.

Baptism and Dog Destroyer- Portmore, Jamaica

Hello everyone. 
I have a lot of pictures this week. On Friday, we were at the church when a crazy lady was outside yelling with a big rock. She was yelling how the white men brought demons into her house. Luckily, there were members there and she left. When we were heading home, we were racing the other elders.  I was behind my companion, and a dog came out to chase him. But i was coming directly behind him and was going too fast to turn. So, i just straight up ran the dogs head and arm over. Somehow i didn't fall off my bike. I looked back and the dogs arm was broken in at least 3 places. It ran away, but it was awesome. We call my bike the dog destroyer haha. On Sunday, DJ and Akeem got baptized. That was a cool experience. I baptized DJ and my comp baptized Akeem. They were both so excited. Akkeem asked me "Will i feel like this for ever?" I told him as long as he is righteous. He said, "so, forever". haha Yes! Today we hiked the blue mountain. That was awesome. We were up above the clouds. This week was pretty sweet. 
I love you all,
Elder Davis

I confirmed DJ in sacrament meeting.

We are going to FHE with their family. There are about 120 every sacrament meeting,but like 400 on record.

It is called the Dog Destroyer, like the Star Destroyer. haha I got a letter from grandma. I get letters from her like every week.

Ugly & Cutie - Portmore, Jamaica

Hello everyone,
General conference was great. We watched it at church. On saturday morning, we went to the store and bought a ton of chips and drinks. haha It was awesome. We ate all of it during conference. My bike tire blew out saturday evening. So we are getting that fixed today. We also washed the neighbors puppies. They have two of them. We named them Ugly and Cutie. Ugly only has 3 legs. When we washed them there were bugs all over them. Hopefully, we got them all off. DJ and Akeem are getting baptized this Sunday. So, that is exciting. Akeem walked by himself to General Conference it was so cool. He is a future missionary for sure. I love you all,
Elder Davis

We don't know our neighbors but their puppies always break into our yard. 

I had my first jerk chicken. It was so good.

I am still losing weight. I could use some protein and some 26 size tire tubes.
