January 22nd

So yeah those two hooligans are who I'm with and the other picture is our district meeting with President on the beach right across from the chapel in Nuumau. It was amazing and such a powerful meeting. It was also the day that the transfer happened right after our interviews and our closing prayer he called out the changes. Elder Alaga is leaving today or tomorrow to tutuila and Elder Allen and I will be here in letogo. So far all is going well in the area the people are stoked to have missionaries since there have been none for a bout 4 months and they're especially to happy to have a palagi they keep telling me because I guess the samoan elders from before weren't doing things they should... I'm excited its a pretty big area and ots of hills which I'm happy about because its like a nice little physical challenge each day which is awesome! I'm praying for some nice calves after a couple months here. ;) 

I'm really having fun with these 2. I am learning a lot about patience because I feel like a babysitter at times with these 2 elders, they're being humble but just forgetting or not caring about simple rules at times and then I have to say somehting and always be the mean guy. ;) They respect me for it htough and I'm learning a lot from it. I do it because God needs us to do miracles for this area and these people. Disobedience just blcoks his power. WHen WE got here to our house though oh my goodness it was horrible. WE got here at about 12 and we (Me) were cleaning till about 8. it was insane! Its not even done, I'm just waiting for the 3rd elder to get transferred to get really settled in and organized and all clean but right now its testing my patience. ;) Thanks for teaching me how to clean though. :) Its been a huge blessing to me on the mission but man i wish Samoans actually cared about cleanliness because I have to clean up after these two hooligans too much. It reminds me of you a lot and probably how you felt towards me and us all those times in my closet and what not... Sorry mommy Jones... I promise I'll always clean up after myself from now on. 
But yeah so now Elder Mendenhall is in Solosolo with Elder Ligaliga and he seems to enjoying it over there. 
Thanks for all the pictures of everyone I sure do miss you guys but I'm so glad to be here so that I can be even more of a blessing to you all when I get home. :) I love you ton and man each week I get on here and jsut see how much God is taking care of you all. My heart breaks a little more each time and I just know that much more that God deserves all of me. Meaning all of my agency so he can do his work... Pray for me to get out of his way and to always remember my purpose with no fear, laziness or slothfulness. 
Do you guys have any thoughts about the invitation I gave you though? I didn't hear a thing about that. IT fits perfectly with Cydney's new calling as well. seriously think about it there's nothing sweeter than this work mommy Jones I know it. :) 
I love love love you mommy. :)
