Lots More Music–Dec 3rd letter

On Tuesday I got a new companion named Elder Jackson. He is from sunny Southern California and is a pretty awesome musician. I finally have a companion that I can talk music with and he knows what I’m talking about! Plus he brought a keyboard with him to so now I can mess around . . . → Read More: Lots More Music–Dec 3rd letter

I’ll Be in Warren for Christmas -Nov 26th letter

So I found out on Saturday that I will be staying in Warren for another transfer. I bet I will end up being here for another 3 months actually. That would fit right in line with my time in Romeo and in Howell. We’ll see though. Elder Stark is getting transferred and we’re both happy and . . . → Read More: I’ll Be in Warren for Christmas -Nov 26th letter

Where’s My Turkey?? -letter from 11/19/2012

This week was a pretty good week but we were really busy. We had to go to two training meetings on Wednesday and Thursday and they lasted pretty much the entire day. Plus it takes about an hour to drive to the chapel we went to. They were still good meetings though and I learned a . . . → Read More: Where’s My Turkey?? -letter from 11/19/2012

Dallin H Oaks Weekend—letter from Erik 11-13-2012

This week was a pretty sweet week for us. Dallin H. Oaks came and spoke to our mission on Saturday and that was probably the highlight for the week. We all thought the meeting was going to be longer though! He was only there for an hour but it was still awesome. He told us that . . . → Read More: Dallin H Oaks Weekend—letter from Erik 11-13-2012

Devils Night Round 2

Most missionaries don’t get the chance to spend one Devil’s Night in Detroit, let alone two. Of course most people wouldn’t even want to spend one there! But I spent two and survived so I’m pretty proud of that! There were fires and guns and police and explosions and fire trucks and drugs and…. . . . → Read More: Devils Night Round 2

Baptized! Letter from Oct 29th 2012

So this week turned out to be pretty awesome even though it we didn’t have the huge numbers we had last week. The baptism was awesome! I felt so privileged that I got to be the one that baptized her. That is the first time I’ve ever done it as a missionary and the first person . . . → Read More: Baptized! Letter from Oct 29th 2012

Miracle Week—Erik’s letter from Oct 22, 2012

Elder Erik Rushton September 2012

So this week was sweet! We had so many cool things happen, that hopefully I have enough time to type them all! In every mission, at the end of every week you add up your “numbers” or “Key indicators” to report to the mission office. Every mission has . . . → Read More: Miracle Week—Erik’s letter from Oct 22, 2012

1 Week until Transfers—Oct 8th letter

 

This week was a pretty fun week and General Conference was pretty sweet. We had 3 investigators show up at the church and watch the Sunday morning session and they all loved it so that was sweet. We also found a bunch of new investigators this week to help replenish our teaching pool . . . → Read More: 1 Week until Transfers—Oct 8th letter

Fun Times at the Zoo—Letter from 10/1/2012

 

This week started off awesome but by the end it got kind of frustrating. The Detroit Zoo was pretty cool but it was about half the size (or maybe less) than Utah’s Zoo. They did have a heck of a lot more penguins and gorillas than Utah’s though! Detroit Zoo’s biggest attraction though . . . → Read More: Fun Times at the Zoo—Letter from 10/1/2012

Two Year Expiration Date —Letter from 9/24/2012

 

I think it’s kind of funny and sad that once the stuff you bought for your mission reaches the ripe old age of two years, it starts to fall apart. The first thing that broke was my original badge from the MTC. It literally split in half on August 29, 2012 – almost . . . → Read More: Two Year Expiration Date —Letter from 9/24/2012
