November 20, 2016Well, let me tell y'all: This has been the hardest, most stressful, most exhausting week of the mission; but I wouldn't have had it any other way.
So. Tuesday we were able to find Jimmy again! We hadn't seen him since the first day of last transfer (exactly 6 weeks ago, on a Tuesday, at 10am). And we were able to start his family history!! Which was a learning experience for all of us because I didn't really know how to start! but really all you need to know are your parents, grandparents, and if you're really lucky your great-grandparents. And then the computer finds death certificates, census records, obituaries, etc. It was super cool. :) So, if you feel like you're tree is "done", it's not, BUT you can also index, so that people like Jimmy can see that their ancestors really did exist and that they lived and had siblings that they didn't even know about!!
|This is what missionaries do when they see statues. :)|
So that's been the brunt of everything that's been going on in Beeville, we are currently without elders, got scared a few times (haha), did some service, ate food, jammed out in our "new-to-us-car", and taught lessons.
Love y'all! Do some family history! Find out who you belong to! start at familysearch.org and you can have a free account, and start with your parents! p.s. there is also a way to find out how to do it if you're adopted, which is another challenge we get to face with someone we know! It's going to be super fun!
Con amor, Sista Fry
