  • A mission is like cooking rice: either there is too much salt or not enough. There is no in-between

    From: Ethan Cade Brimhall [mailto:ethan.brimhall@myldsmail.net] Sent: Monday, August 14, 2017 6:07 AM At least for me. This week, there was too much salt. Hey everyone! I hope your week was great! Mine was sort of jacked up but I got through it without too many scars. This email is equally crazy and disorganized. Update on […]

  • From hospital adventures to a six-person sacrament meeting

    From: Ethan Cade Brimhall [mailto:ethan.brimhall@myldsmail.net] Sent: Monday, August 7, 2017 6:11 AM Tuesday I went to a super white district leader training this morning. I kid you not, every district leader and zone leader in Kenema is white. I don’t think this has ever happened before in the history of the mission. Anyway, it was […]

  • “Scripture power is the power to win!” Who knows that one?

    From: Ethan Cade Brimhall [mailto:ethan.brimhall@myldsmail.net] Sent: Monday, July 31, 2017 6:24 AM My fellow children of God, Elder Kabosha left Tuesday morning a little after 9 am. I got a little choked up as I was giving him my last fatherly advice and hug before he goes out into the cruel world to call the […]

  • Elder Kabosha says goodbye

    From: Ethan Cade Brimhall [mailto:ethan.brimhall@myldsmail.net] Sent: Monday, July 24, 2017 1:29 PM Hey everyone, This week was a little harder than most because my son is leaving me after almost six months. We got transfer news telling us that he is leaving for Yemoh Town in Bo, adjacent to my previous area there. He will […]

  • I now understand the meaning of “restoration”

    From: Ethan Cade Brimhall [mailto:ethan.brimhall@myldsmail.net] Sent: Monday, July 17, 2017 9:29 AM My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, That is how my branch president greets the congregation every time he gets up at the pulpit. He is slowly infecting the rest of the branch. I decided I would try it out. Probably not going […]

  • Lift up your heart and rejoice, for the hour of your mission is come; and your tongue shall be loosed, and you shall declare glad tidings of great joy unto this generation.

    From: Ethan Cade Brimhall [mailto:ethan.brimhall@myldsmail.net] Sent: Monday, July 10, 2017 9:46 AM Hey people! I still wasn’t feeling 100%, so I had another test done. I won’t describe that one. It showed nothing again, so we decided I’m just suffering the residual effects of extreme stress on my body after it was burning up for […]

  • Welbodi

    From: Ethan Cade Brimhall [mailto:ethan.brimhall@myldsmail.net] Sent: Monday, July 3, 2017 5:53 AM Hey people! I got 100% better by Thursday. I was still feeling drained and achy through Wednesday, but by Thursday morning I was A-okay. Elder Kabosha and Elder Cayetano got sick as well. Life is good now, though. Let’s look on the bright […]

  • Sick Week

    From: Ethan Cade Brimhall [mailto:ethan.brimhall@myldsmail.net] Sent: Monday, June 26, 2017 9:46 AM Hey everyone! So I continued being sick through Sunday. One full week of sickness. Trying to live and do missionary stuff on Wednesday was necessary, but it killed me. I got some tests done at the government hospital here, but nothing was wrong. […]

  • Somethin’ good, somethin’ bad, bit of both

    From: Ethan Cade Brimhall [mailto:ethan.brimhall@myldsmail.net] Sent: Wednesday, June 21, 2017 9:42 AM Monday Elder Kabosha and I rearranged our room since a fourth transfer with nothing changed in our living space would drive us a little crazy. It took a while deep cleaning and moving everything, so our day was cut somewhat short. If I […]

  • New area added to mission boundaries

    Elder Brimhall was unable to get to an internet cafe to write home this week. He asked Sis. Clawson at the mission home to please update his parents that all is well and not to worry. She shared President Clawson’s weekly email. See excerpts below… Sent: Monday, June 19, 2017 8:13 AM We’ve had some […]
