week #5 & #6 Linstead

Week #6
Hello fam, 
This week has been good. My district now consists of 8 people including me. Four of them are sisters. We spent some time getting the areas split for good. Elder Koegler and I have had a bit of a rough time since we lost a lot of the people we were seeing in the area split. Things are starting to pick back up again though. It has taken some slow days and hard work though. 
Elder Hall coming here was.... a mistake! The APs messed up the transfer calls. Elder Hall is actually in Ocho Rios now, and we got Elder Kemp. Elder Kemp is a cool kid. He will be a good addition to the district. Elder Koegler and I took a trip out towards Tulloch this week. Sometimes, when everything falls through, it is good to go and explore your area a bit. We went out to the point where we honestly wouldn't ride out there even to teach investigators. We never did reach Tulloch. The ride was beautiful though. 
We have been teaching a man named Paul lately. Paul is a great guy. He is really involved in his community, and has been in charge of overseeing the building of a new recreational center where he lives. We have been invited to attend the opening ceremony on Saturday. We will be counted as guests of honor along with... Portia Simmons, the prime minister of Jamaica. So that should be a cool experience. Hopefully we will find some more people to teach from it.  
It sounds like you had a great time on trek. All the pictures you sent reminded me of my trek. It really is a once in a lifetime experience. A good reminder of what our ancestors went through.  
Lydia: I bet you did great with the play. You will have to send me some pictures. You too nathan. 
Nathan:  Me a teach unu fi chat likkle patwah. Unu gwaan fi be a rill jameikan when me done wid you. Cyan unu seh- a di time? Das ow we ask fi di time dem. If unu cyaan undastand dis ting, read it out loud and maybe you will get it. A di ting m'yute. 
Good luck.
I love you all! 
Love, Daniel.

Week #5
Hi fam- 
This week was pretty good. We did a lot of the same old stuff. Missionary work. We are teaching some good people, and all is going well though. Transfer calls came on saturday. I will be staying with Elder Koegler. Elder Hall will be coming from Mo bay to serve with Elder Groesbeck. Elder Dalley will be returning home to riverton this week. We will also be getting two more sisters, so my district will now consist of 8 members. Wow.  
The members have been really excited with the formation of the new stake. We have been working to get them all doing missionary work. It has been going well. We have a lot of great members here in Linstead.  
For trek- I think it would be good to talk about how each of us are pioneers. With the way things are going, it is going to take courage to be a Mormon. Even our pioneer ancestors look up to those in our day. Our trial will be hard, but the examples that have come before will make it so we can push through. Trek will be a great experience. I am excited to hear about it.  
Elder Koegler was not feeling well for the last few days. I sat inside all day Saturday. I drew literally the whole time. From nine in the morning until ten thirty at night. It was fantastic. I probably took a half hours worth of breaks in there, but twelve hours of drawing was great. Elder Koegler is feeling a little better now. We should be good get back out this week.  
I love you all!
Love, Elder Pullan
Dad- Happy fathers day!
I just realized that it was fathers day yesterday. I hope you had a good one. I want you to know that I am grateful for the example that you have set for me as my dad. You are a great man, and you have been my best friend since day one. Thanks for being so great to me, even when I was off doing my own thing. I love you dad.
Love, your son.
