Our intent of this blog is to share Brock's adventures in Orlando, Florida while he's on his LDS mission. Hopefully, by reading about how Brock is changing the lives of so many, and seeing Brock's own personal growth in the gospel, the people reading this blog will also be able to feel the spirit and be inspired to strengthen or develop their own testimonies of Christ and the LDS church.

.......and it's 2016!

Brock's busy schedule!

Happy New Year!

Friends and Family,

What's good 2016? Hahaha it was a great "blackout year"  of 2015 of
where I've been on my mission for that entire year. It FLEW by!! I've
learned a more in this year than I ever thought I would. I'm grateful
for my mission! It was the beginning of the Transfer this week and
overall we had a pretty good one. We've seen both, the struggle and
the glory days over these past 7 days. It was a roller coaster of a

Addie, is definitely doing great! She is a reading machine when it
comes to the Book of Mormon! She's loving it, and hasn't had any
concerns about it this far. She's felt like her life has gotten better
since she's met with us and knows that we are teaching her for a
reason. We are both excited for the progression to continue taking

We had an Investigator named Jana, and she was dropped this week. I
only mention this because I have learned a ton from meeting with her.
Jana is living in a house that is about to be foreclosed on, her
electric and water bills are about to be shut off, and she isn't
really doing too much about it! We have given her so many different
options of how we can help her but she doesn't capitalize on the
opportunities. I've learned that it's vital to have a drive in life.
Without it, nothing is going to happen and life will be stagnant. I
love how the things you learn on a mission apply to life afterwards as

Our goal this week was to set some baptismal dates with those we are
teaching, but unfortunately we struck out pretty hard core. It just
wasn't the right timing for our investigators this week. Satan
definitely put a bump in their road this week, but at least they have
realized it, and this week should be better!

New Years was pretty fun! Holidays on the mission are kind of weird.
They don't really feel like holidays and not much is different for us.
However, being in the Ward with the Reisings they make sure to take
care of us during the holidays! They told us we needed to stop by
before we go home that night. When we arrived, we were treated with
some chocolate cake and some random camo "service" hats. Hahah they
are awesome.

This is a shorter email, but I'm excited for this upcoming week. It's
a "Make it or Break it" week for a lot of our investigators and we are
pumped! Elder Chidester and I are excited for good things to happen
this week. Thanks for all of the support, and have a great start to
the new year!
With Love,
-Elder Doman

New Year's Eve with the Reisings!
