Elder Hunt is out of the Mission Office!! New address is on the right! :)

Thursday, May 31, 2012


Well, I´m not. But the Mission president got Quorum of the 12 permission to send missionaries into the Spanish cities in Morocco. The end is coming man, we´ve got missionaries in Muslim Africa. This is really huge news! They sent to pretty strong guys down there, they should be able to fend for their own.

Ok, more news. I am getting transferred to Fuengirola, Málaga! Wait a second, isn´t that where the mission home is? Yes, yes it is. I got a call from President Clegg this past Thursday and he told me "Elder Hunt, I have a really big task for you" At this moment, I thought he was going to say, you´re going to be a zone leader  or training and opening an area again, but he said, Elder Hunt, you´re coming to Fuengirola as an office AP. I didn´t expect it at all. I´m not an AP that travels around with the president to zone conferences, but I am an assistant to the president in the office (we play the 4 AP system)

I am very excited for this opportunity and really really bummed at the same time. My mission is basically going on Pause, in terms of proselyting. I think I´ll have like 3 hours of tracting time every day. But the big task president clegg referred to is that in 3 weeks, the cleggs go home and the new mission president deere comes in. So he said that the mission will be on our (the AP´s) shoulders. It is going to be a pretty intense next couple of weeks.
Good bye to the Cleggs

But my Pday is now on Saturdays. and you can send me mail strait to the mission office!

Well, I am doing great and having a great time. We are seeing miracles here in alicante. I am a little sad to say good bye to elder Bird, but there is time for everything and he needs to spread his "own wings and fly" (get it?!) well, I´ll talk to you again on Saturday I guess!

Os quiero mucho!

Very Short Letter…

This one is going to have to be quick. This is the last week in the transfer and i think I am going to get the call this week, so next monday I will for sure let you know where I am going if I go or if I will just hang out around here some more.

This past week really just flew by. It was kind of a low week, in regards to our  number of lessons, but we keep going. I feel like everything we had from what we´ve been working for just slipped out of our hands out of nowhere. We had so much going for us, then this week came, and I am just asking myself, what on earth just happened. We lost like everything and everyone we were teaching in just a few days. But it happens, we have up weeks and down weeks. So i just hope this week we can recuperate from what we lost.

Well my family, I love you all so very much and I loved the pictures from the warrior dash, we have got to do that again next year!

Os quiero,

Wow this week has been intense!

Well first of all, miracles are being dumped onto us.  Well even before that, we live in the streets. I don´t think I have ever been out this much in the streets (as opposed to in houses of people teaching them) but we are seeing so many miracles for it. Just this past week 86 people gave us their information to contact them later.  Preach my Gospel and all the missionary stuff out there says to always invite them to be to be baptized in the first lesson but this past week we decided that, since we haven´t had many lessons for the first time with people, we just ask them on the street. It surprised me the first time I did it because the guy said yes and as we talked we talked about a date. His name is Edil and he is planned for the 8 of June. This happened SEVEN more times times this week. This whole experience has made me about 10 times more bold and almost every contact we make with someone on the street we tell them that they have to be baptized by us. It has produced miracles and lately it has seemed that there isn´t enough time in the day to get all the things we need to get done finished! I love my mission so much. Today I saw on my agenda that I will be home in 9 months. My heart dropped a little bit. This whole thing has gone by so fast but I am so happy to be a part of it. I love the savior, I love my mission, and I love all of you!

Os quiero,

Oh yea, the pictures, 
We(me really) made fajitas for cinco de mayo (they don´t celebrate it here so we had our own celebration). They were AMAZING!
There is a British store in a pueblo around here that sells D.P. So I bought 6 liters......Yea, I don´t think I´ll be doing that again any time soon....

Things are starting to pick up for us

We are finally starting to see some fruits pop up from our hard work. We are still basically living in the streets looking for new investigators, but small miracles are rapidly making our area grow. We met an African man named "Ese" a few weeks ago and we finally got in with him and had a nice lesson. It was less than 10 minutes and he agreed to be baptized on the 26th of may. It was quite the miracle. We got in there, invited him to be baptized and then left. It was short, but powerful at the same time. The only sad part of this story is that he lives in the boundaries of the other ward so we had to pass him off to the other elders. It was a bummer, but, we will find someone else!

On saturday, we stopped by the house of some people we have been teaching. A gypsy family from Cadiz Spain and when we get to their door, they let us in and there was a ton of smoke in the house and the STRONGEST scent of weed. The door was open so we had to go in to talk to them, my companion refused to go in, eh, he´s still new, but I went in there and reminded them about church on sunday. They all had the biggest smiles on their faces and promised that they would all come. Sunday came around, and they ended up not showing up. It wasn´t too big of a surprise.

The week really went by so fast I can´t even remember where I left off from last week. We were in the street contacting, talking to people that are walking around, and we invited a lady and her mom to a family history activity the ward was having. I figured that it was a learn how to start your family tree type deal going on, like starting up a 4 generations chart. So they surprisingly come but they come a little bit late. We meet them outside the church building and walk in, and the teacher of the class says, "and thats why you need to search for your ancestors with the spirit of Elijah." She then explained deeper doctrine about salvation for us through the salvation of our ancestors and it was a bit of a headache. Again, i wasn´t too impressed by the ward members. But the people we invited ended up liking the activity and we are going over to visit them on Thursday. So we will see how things will go!

I am doing great out here. It is so weird that it is basically May! This year is really moving!

I love you all!
