Zombie Tag - Linstead, Jamaica

Hello everyone,

This week was good. Sandra isn't getting baptized. A lady named Perkins is getting baptized hopefully. She came to church. We are now covering 3 areas so that is fun. All of the young men have fidget spinners. We tried to play zombie tag on Friday for Friday night activity, but they are all lame. It didn't work. Oh well. We have been getting fed more, so that is awesome. Every evening we have an apointment with members not all of them feed us, but it's still fun to visit the members. No package yet. hopefully this week.

Love you all,

Elder Davis

I'll Be Finishing My Mission In Linstead - Linstead, Jamaica

Hello everyone,

This week was good. We got transfer calls. I am staying in Linstead. We are getting the other area, so we now we cover all of Linstead. And I get to go back to my old area.

There were supposed to be 14 new missionaries out of the MTC, but only 4 came. So there is a lack of missionaries. The white shirts are all still white. I got the new ones. Bro Muschette is a character. 

A lot of people here think the spirit makes you go crazy and roll on the ground and speak in tongues. They just don't really trust anyone, not to superstitious. They are working good. Lots of people like to come and hang out at our Friday night activities. 
We take taxis everyday. They are just little crappy cars and they squish a lot of people it them. They drive really fast. The drivers here are good. but they are crazy drivers. They drive insane but there are surprisingly not a lot of crashes. 
Some believe that they are separate, some think it is the trinity. 
Rastas think King Ilie Salasy is Jesus reincarnated. 
We have a couple of really cool investigators. One of them should be baptized on the 6th. She just moved out of her boyfriends house. So she is awesome. We will soon have a bunch more from the other area. 
I think it is harder to live the gospel here than in the US. There are a lot of temptations and less friends with standards. 
We have a washing machine but no drier. We have the same appliances. Nothing to crazy this week. 
I love you all,
Elder Davis

Sickness and Guinness - Linstead, Jamaica

Hello Everyone, 
This week was good. I went on trade off with the zone leaders, and the ac in there car got me sick. I got some medicine, and I'm feeling better now. 
We have been working with a less active named Sandra. She came to church this week. So that was awesome. 
Today we went hiking with a member today. I forgot my camera, but I'm having the other elders send me pictures. 
O ya, last night was kind of crazy. We went to a member's house. She gave us some carrot juice. It tasted funny. Her son always jokes with us, and he said there is Guinness in it. We thought he was joking. Then the member started acting drunk. We asked her what was in the drink. She said it was carrots and milk stuff. After we asked the son if there was alcohol in it. He said there was. So, I might have been buzzed last night. haha We just headed home after that. 
That's how my week went
Love you all,
Elder Davis

Engagement, Root Beer Candies, and Rasta Dudes - Linstead, Jamaica

Hello Every one, 
This week was good. Elder Poe (a missionary who served here a little while ago) got engaged, we were invited. So, I have a video of it. His family is really nice. I got your package from them. The stuff is awesome. I gave a few of the root beer candy out at church, and a lot of the Jamaicans don't like it.  Everyone here thinks the sunflower seeds are bird food. haha. Instead of mutual here we are starting this thing called Friday night activity. Where everyone is invited to come and play games or watch a movie or something along those lines. This week we played football. (soccer) I scored a goal, so that was fun. The tie in the package is dope. Thanks Elly. Everyone loves it. The dog in our yard, I think had puppies. We found two Rasta dudes this week. They are pretty cool, and it seems like they are searching for the truth. Over all a good week.
Love you all,
Elder Davis

Banana Smoothies This Week - Linstead, Jamaica

Hello everyone! 
This week was good. We have been having a lot of FHE with the families of the ward. So that has been fun. Church was good. Bro Muschette gave us a bunch of bananas. So, I'm going to make some smoothies this week. My favorite mango is a belly full. They are really big. We are going to start to visit all the part member families. There are a few potential investigators in the families. 
I do miss Thelma. haha There is voodoo and stuff they call it Obea. I haven't seen any but I hear about it. 
The license plates here are just white and have red letters. They are boring, and taxis have red plates. 
There aren't any monkeys. I have heard that all the Jamaicans ate them all, but i don't think it is true. They don't have Uber there are just a bunch of taxis that go everywhere.
I can't find any white shirts no one has my size. No mail this week. I'm good. i just watched the videos of dad on the runway. What the heck? I am dying. haha
Love you all
Elder Davis

Having FHE!
