December 21, 2015Ft. Defiance, AZ
This has been a good first week here in Ft. Defiance. Let me tell you a bit about the area and about my position. So we have a very strange position. I am a zone-leader for the Chinle Zone, I serve in the Window Rock AZ ward, we cover Ft. Defiance, and we live in St. Michaels, wow 4 different places. Here in the Window Rock ward we have 3 sets of full time missionaries. Us in Ft. Defiance. Another set of Elders in Window Rock, a set of Sisters in St. Mikes. We also have a senior missionary couple and have another on the way. That will be 10 missionaries in 1 ward, this is very unique for our mission.
Ft. D is a pretty awesome place but it is pretty ghetto. Our area is riddled with gangs, in fact there is a housing that we are not allowed to knock because it is the center of their turf battles. Now they would by no means mess with us, in fact most of them respect us and would have our backs but we don't want to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, so need to worry about that.
Well I only have half an hour today but I hope that all of you have a very Merry Christmas.
