Up on a castle in Almeria
Well another transfer down! 
I'm staying here in Almeria, and I'm getting a new companion named elder Hammond. I don't know much about him, this is his 3rd transfer. (Courtney look him up on social media and give me a report...I think his name is Chase) This transfer is 8 weeks, so that could be a good or bad thing. Anyways, I hope everyone is doing well during the holidays! Be happy and spend time with friends and family!! But say on the straight and narrow path. 
Love you all!
Elder Rex

Bread crumbs and hot dogs, pretty much eating dust

Getting in the Christmas spirit

"The Elder Rex"

The food Elder Rex is known for making!

"It's like a giant egg pizza. Inside there is bacon, french fries, sometimes broccoli, and a lot of other stuff. This one had hot dogs and tuna. I put in whatever I have at the moment."


We had a thanksgiving celebration this week so that was pretty fun. I was in charge of cooking the turkey and stuffing and they both turned out good! Somehow I always get put in charge of the cooking... I wouldn't mind but I seem to always have to clean dishes afterwards also... oh well. I do enjoy making food for people though. I'm know for my lentils, chicken stuff and the dish I call "An Elder Rex" not too bad.

It's starting to get cold's not good. I don't have very much warm attire so my Southern California boy body might freeze to death, but that's alright. I'm sure I'll survive.

I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving and many things to be thankful for, I know I do. I probably don't express it enough... but I'm very thankful to all of you who love and support me as I'm over here. All the people reading this letter, really.... you took the time to go to my blog so you get points in my book. Thank you all!

Sorry I don't have much to say, Almeria is a good place but it's slow as of lately, not much exciting happens. I helped change a tire today... That was the most exciting part of my day!!! Hahaha hopefully things start to spicen up! Transfers are next Wednesday. I'm not sure if I want to get transferred or not...the work here is rough. The roughest of all my areas so far, we barely teach anything. I have a great district who I love though. And I don't wanna leave this area until it has improved in some way... So I guess we will see what happens. We will know Saturday. My comp is from Washington, the tri cities area. He's 18 which is weird....when I graduated he was a freshman...when I was in my last area he was graduating high school. Makes me feel ancient... I'm going to Malaga Wednesday to spent the night and have a conference the next day! So that should be good! Should give me some more material to write about next week.

Once again I'm thankful for all your support and prayers!!!!

Con mucho amor,
Elder Rex 


Well I'm still in Spain! We went to the mall today for pday and I was tempted to buy things but I didn't buy anything. I did buy some Burger King though and it was expensive and not worth it but that's fast food for you. Also today we went to a castle and a big Jesus
statue. I don't feel like typing so I'm talking to Siri and she's typing everything for me so there might be some mistakes because she's not perfect like I am but that's OK. #firstworldproblems 

Yesterday was Sunday and we went to church, but my companion wasn't feeling good and he couldn't do anything after church so it was a slow night. It's starting to get cold here... and I'm kinda sweater less at the two sweaters I brought on the mission have shrunk so they don't really for me well... I promise I haven't gotten bigger!!! They shrunk!! I jammed my finger playing soccer so my CTR ring doesn't fit me anymore.. It's been over a week and I still can't wear it! It bugs me! I've worn that ring for a year straight almost and I feel naked without it. 
I hope all is well back home, I love you all, and you're all in my prayers.

Poor missionary food
