It's Mango Season - Linstead, Jamaica

Hello everyone!
This week was good. We found a cool old a lady to teach. We had a lot of ackee this week. Ackee and bacon, ackee and saltfish, breadfruit, curried chicken, and fry chicken this week. It has been hot here, probably not as hot as back home but still warm. It's mango season. So I have been eating a lot of mangos. 
There is definitely a reason for the mission rules. Blessings come when you follow them. 
Fun things to do in jamaica...
1 for non-members there are all sorts of parties. 
2 go to the beach. 
3 go to the river and swim 
4 eat food. 
5 play soccer 
6 chill 
7 sit and reason and talk bad about the government. haha People just like to chill and eat. No one here likes Trump. They charge white people more for things than Jamaicans.
Love you guys

Stitching Up A Dog - Linstead, Jamaica

Hello everyone! 
This week was good. We helped stitch up a dog's face this week. Someone chopped it in the face with a machete. So that was exciting. Stake conference was good. There is just one stake here, and it is pretty small. I saw Patrick and a bunch of other people I knew. Last monday we had a zone pday. That was fun. We played volleyball and soccer and a little basketball. Tabitha is doing good. Her dog is the one that got chopped. No mail this week. I have shoes. It was fun, I got kicked in the shin. I was going to score a goal. My comp was a spaz and just kicked as hard as he could and hit my shin instead of the ball.  But pain is an emotion! haha  I am staying in Linstead, probably for the rest of my mission.
I love you all

Raising My X-Wing Out of the Swamp - Linstead, Jamaica

Hello everyone, 
This week was good. Zone conference was good. We talked a lot about hope. I talked to President he said he was going to see what he could do to keep me in Linstead. Linstead is great. I would be happy anywhereI never got the letters with stickers. We are working on finding new investigators. We are still teaching Tabatha. So, we have been walking around a lot talking to people. I sleep just fine here. The ward is great it is the biggest on the island and the best running. The bishop is awesome also. Sounds like it is exciting back home. Later today we are going to Spain Town to play soccer with the the rest of the zone. Elder Johansen and Elder Stevens are going home the same day as me. 
I love you all,
Elder Davis
