Jason hit his year mark in Chandler. He said it was crazy for him to think it has already been a year because it doesn't seem that long ago! Chandler is a lot different than Globe and is a very nice area of the mission. He covers 6 wards so that keeps them really busy. It was hot! hot! hot! Getting up to 115 degrees many days! In October it came back down to the 90's and now it is nice enough weather that they can go outside with out sweating!
One day they got caught in the hardest down pour that he has ever seen. They couldn't get into anyones house so they got drenched! Luckily it only lasted about half an hour. It felt much better than the 110 degrees before the storm!
Nikki was finally able to get baptised on November 6th! He was able to quit smoking which is a miracle-- as he is 80 years old and has smoked since he was 8!
Britney was also baptized on November 6th. She is 15 years old!
This Wednesday they had a missionary rodeo at the farm Jason lives at. Money was tied to some steers and chickens for the chase. They had a blast! It was a fun activity with the cooler weather being a welcome change from the heat!
