Hello everyone,

This week was good, just really long. We have been finding a lot lately. We have found a couple of people. They are interested and want to change their life. I signed my name on the desk. That is zombie dog. Murmer is the dog on my lap. We also dressed a goat up. haha That was fun. This week was good.

Lots of Good Things Happening Here - Linstead, Jamaica

Hello everyone,
This week was pretty good. We went on three trade offs this week. Elder Poe snorted orange juice. haha. He drank it, and it came out of his nose. haha It was really funny. I am glad to stay in Linstead, lots of good things happening here. We got stuff for pizza. We are going to make it today. So, that will be fun. We are also taking over part of the other elders area. So, that is cool. Still finding new investigators. 
People wear pretty much the same thing here as there. The girls are more immodest, but pretty much the same. No mail this week. 
There are big houses and small houses. Some of them are made from like sheets of tin or zync. Others are built out of cinder blocks. There are also a lot of unfinished houses, because people only build when they have money to build. You can just go in the bush and build a house wherever you want, and you dont have to buy the land. I'll probably miss the food the most. There are a lot of family yards. So, there will be one big yard and lots of little houses and a ton of people. 
I love you all,
Elder Davis

I just want to do all the good I can, in the next 6 months! - Linstead, Jamaica

Hello everyone!
This week was pretty fun. One of the days this week we went on the road, and then we saw this little kid that had a bloody foot. He had cut it on something and was trying to walk to his house with his friends. He couldn't walk good, so we took turns carrying him home. Today we went to Spain Town and played football and watched a movie called the best two years. So, that was fun. There is a funny Rastaman that lives in our area. He always calls us his bonafide generals. haha We think he is Master Chief because his name is John. (nerds will know why). So it has been fun. Linstead is awesome. I think I will stay I might get a new comp, but we are not sure. Yes, I still use the transformer bag. We are working on getting new investigators. My comp is good. I just want to do all the good I can in the next 6 months. 
10 things I have learned about living with someone new: 
1 Be humble
2 Sometimes I just have to get over myself if someone is weird
3 Laughter is good 
4 Don't let someone change who you are; unless it is for the better
I cant think of anything else, but humility is big!!
I love you all,
Elder Davis

So, Ya That Happened - Linstead, Jamaica

Hello everyone,
This week was good. We helped an old lady paint. After we left, she fell off a barrel that she was standing on. She called us and was in the hospital, but i think she is ok. So, ya that happened. I got a new set of scriptures. We have been playing Pokemon with the card that you sent. So that is fun. No investigators for us came this week. We are just trying to find new ones.
The 4 biggest churches here are Apostalic churches, Seventh Day Adventist, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Rastas. Rastas don't even know what they believe. They just smoke tons of weed. In a couple of the big towns there are movie theatres, but mostly just bootleg movies sold on the side of the road. 
They listen to music called dance hall. They remix American music and add air horn and car sirens in the songs.
Church is pretty much the same just not as many people, and there are always arguments in Elder's quorum. There are churches called Pokomania churches, and they do stuff like the lady does in Pirates of the Caribbean. They call it black magic. obia. 
No mail this week. I am good. Don't send too many more packages. I've only got 6 months left. Hopefully i will get mail this week.
That was this week.
Love you all, 
Elder Davis
