  • Conference weekend, the return of Charity, the near destruction of Charity, and a couple miracles.

    From: Ethan Cade Brimhall [mailto:ethan.brimhall@myldsmail.net] Sent: Saturday, October 7, 2017 3:30 PM Saturday and Sunday Basically just chilled and watched conference all day. I’ll do something interesting and give one thing I learned from every speaker in conference in chronological order. You can remove the barriers blocking heavenly help by following the Savior, which brings […]

  • The insanity that is MLC

    From: Ethan Cade Brimhall [mailto:ethan.brimhall@myldsmail.net] Sent: Saturday, September 30, 2017 8:40 AM Monday We had an apartment meeting in the morning where we basically just talked Bishop Markus’s ear off with things we have to do together. President Clawson left early to go to another meeting. It lasted a little too long. We were given […]

  • slower week = more spiritual week

    From: Ethan Cade Brimhall [mailto:ethan.brimhall@myldsmail.net] Sent: Saturday, September 23, 2017 3:12 PM To clarify, the subject line of last week’s email was an observation made by Elder Wheelock, one of the AP’s. He said that I have come to a sound understanding being in the mission home because I see all the crazy stuff that […]

  • I have come to a sound understanding

    Let’s see if I can portray an adequate picture of what I do in the office in this email. Tuesday In the morning, we had a meeting with President and Sister Clawson, the AP’s, and Bishop Markus (the facilities manager for the mission). We discussed how to get missionaries to clean their apartments and take […]

  • OFFICE BABA

    From: Ethan Cade Brimhall [mailto:ethan.brimhall@myldsmail.net] Sent: Saturday, September 9, 2017 11:07 AM “Office Baba.” That’s what they call me now that I’m an office elder. I’ll likely be here in the mission home for the next four transfers as that’s the tradition. I’ll talk about my last week in Hangha before I get to the […]

  • August 28, 2017

    From: Ethan Cade Brimhall [mailto:ethan.brimhall@myldsmail.net] Sent: Monday, August 28, 2017 8:58 AM (housemates) Hey! I want everyone to know right off the bat that having two amazing weeks in a row is pretty rare. Usually it’s good, bad, good, bad, and so on, but this week I broke the norm! On Monday, we received instruction […]

  • Pretty much just Tuesday haha

    From: Ethan Cade Brimhall [mailto:ethan.brimhall@myldsmail.net] Sent: Monday, August 21, 2017 6:24 AM Hey everyone! First of all, rest assured that no missionaries were hurt in the recent mudslides here. In Freetown last week, upwards of 400 people were killed in a massive mudslide, and in a village east of Kenema, about 200 more were killed […]

  • 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 […]
