Faith - Spanish Town, Jamaica

The people here are pretty genuine. A lot of the members here are kind of lazy, but there are a lot of really cool ones. Bro Harrison is a teacher and there is one that is curator for the Jamaican Money Museum. The shoes I bought are kind of small, but they should work. If anything, I'll buy some here it is cheaper. There are three dogs in our yard the are getting ticks. I pulled off some of the big ones. They are named Chancho, Tinkink, and Rachel. I'll get pictures of them next week. The investigators are going kind of slow. Brother Anderson was supposed to get baptized on the third, but there is some problem with his water bill that is stressing him out. He wants his life to be perfect before baptism, and he has no faith that the Lord will help him if he gets baptized. We are going to go build his faith hard core next time we see him. That is a little piece of my week. 
I love you all,
Elder Davis

We help the members do family history, either in there home or at the church. There are jerk stands everywhere. I'll take a picture this week. I have to go now. I love you. Tell ever one i said "Hi".

I wish I could have been at the funeral. She(his great grandma) is watching over all of us now.

Jerk Fridays! - Spanish town, Jamaica

Hello everyone,
This week was good. There were a few days where every one of our appointments fell through. So, we went finding like all day. It was crazy. I had chicken foot on Thursday. It wasn't that bad just a lot of bones. It was in a stew that was really good. I bought a big stick of cane. It looks like bamboo, and you peel it, then chew. On the inside, it's super sweet. We are teaching a owner of a cook shop, an old guy that is blind in one eye, and a guy in the ghetto that is kind of depressed. He is 37 and has 6 kids and 2 grand children so that is interesting. They are all really solid. Mission president Brown rode my bike in the church today. haha. Everyone loves the giant seat. That is how my week went. People here have trouble with the Book of Mormon, and that is what they are the most interested in. They either hate it or love it.
I love you all,
Elder Davis

I am not in the scary area. We have the nice area. There are mansions in part of our area. All of the pastors live there

I am good.

put this on my blog-> Every Friday is Friday jerk night. So we buy jerk chicken every Friday.
I invite everyone to read the scripture Moroni 10:3-5 and do what it says.

9 Months Out - Murderers, Gangs, People have Tough Lives

Hello everyone.
This week flew by. Time is really flying by. Stake Conference was great. I saw a bunch of people from Portmore so that was awesome. I didn't see DJ and Akkeem, but i saw their mom there. There were two 70s that came from Salt Lake so that was pretty cool. There were so many people that they made all the missionaries sit on the floor in the primary room. haha Rosa parks type stuff. haha jk. Oh ya and we are teaching a murderer. Well we are not anymore. He is just 15 and he got affiliated with a gang. I guess the gang said either one of them could live, or they would kill them both. So he killed his friend. so ya fun stuff. It makes a crazy story to tell, but on the other side of things we have a lot of really cool people that we are working with. We have a bunch set for baptisms. There are some hills. I think I am loosing weight. So that's good. That's a little about my week.

I love you all
Elder Davis

Ya,there are a lot of gangs. The gangs  like the missionaries, so they protect us all over the island. Ya, that was insane i couldn't believe it when he told us.

I am good. It is hot here though. I am constantly sweating bullets.

No mail this week. The members feed us every Thursday and Monday.

                                   My two favorite members from Portmore, Donald and Patrick

                                    Shortman  and his bathroom. He lives in the ghetto.

Hectic Week! - Spanish Town, Jamaica

 Hello Everyone!
It's Pday once again. This week was good hectic, but good. I am on the outskirts of Spain town. So, that is good it is pretty bushy. I tried jack fruit for the first time this week, and I had my first real Jamaican jerk chicken. We found a guy that does voodoo and stuff. haha It has been a good week. I was sick on Wednesday my stomach was upset. So, i thought i was just going to sleep for like an hour, but when i woke up it was like 6 at night. oops! I feel a lot better. Over all it has been a good week this week.

I love you all!
Elder Davis

My companion is good. He is not from Utah so thats good, haha. He is from Texas.

No mail yet.

I think i am going to get sunglasses. today but ya im good. I sent a package to you last Pday. It was sent by surface so idk how long it will take.

The apartment is kind of gross. We have to flush the toilet with a clothes hanger the water is cold. Other than that its pretty good.

I have some weird shoes. Yes Spain Town is interesting. At least im not in town. I'm outside of it.

Sometimes there are places we cant go, but we have the nice area. There are 10 elders in Spanish town.

No, I dont really need anything. We are going to play some board games later.
