Rex is having a great experience, although the work is slow in Brindisi.  It was the experience of a lifetime to be able to talk to Rex on Christmas.  He can tell me all is well in emails, but until I see his face and hear his voice, I am just not sure.  I think the years of Sean being deployed has prepared me for these trying times.  I wouldn't wish for Rex to be anywhere else than where he is.  It has been such a blessing to our family to have him on a mission.  He is such a great example to us all. 

this week was an eventful week, and we haven't had one of those in quite a long time.
just a few stories.
We had an awesome investigator named angelica. she is a sweet african lady and she would come to church all of the time, but recently we found out she had one preoccupation. she didn't want to read the book of mormon. plus she thought we were magicians. but we had some fun lessons with her!
we went over to the Okoh's house this week! they were baptized about a year ago. really awesome family. their kids put stickers all over my missionary planner, but it's pretty cool now, so i'm alright with it. :) they made us some chicken and rice, and iot tasted like something my mom would make, and i ate soooo much of it, and i was just the happiest little american boy. 
we went to church on sunday and an american family showed up! the Harris family, from Idaho. brother kip harris is the dean of students at BYU-I and his son brandon served in this mission about a year ago, including 9 months at the end of his mission in brindisi! they came, and sister harris brought us homemade carmel and fruit leather (SUPER GOOD), and we ate pranzo with the palma's, afterwards, we walked around ostuni with this family and some english course students. 
transfers are coming up, so anziano jones will probably go somewhere else. he hopes rome, but we'll see. it's be nice for him to stick around one more, but once again, we'll see. i'm excited for next transfer as well, because i feel like brindisi is going to explode with people interested in the gospel.
work's good, life's good, i'm good. :)
vi voglio bene, 
anziano blair.
