Hello Family and Friends! 
This week was great!  Super busy and productive! 
Tons of crazy and awesome events, the worst thing though is I cant remember any events, I should write this stuff down, eh?  Time flies bye so fast by the time Monday comes back around, i cant remember anything! Things here are great though. Elder Daniel Johnson of the seventy came and spoke to us, it was awesome. He spoke about teaching people by the spirit, it was really amazing! On a less spiritual note, we got Nerf swords and had (and will have many more) sweet fights with them!
I hope you guys have a great week.  Thanks for all the letters and cards, if you have written me a letter in the past month I am 99% sure I already wrote you back  but if you have written me a letter and I haven't replied, write me another and chew me out! ;) 
Love you all and take care!
Elder Braman 
Brad Reimer (Josh's cousin who lives in Spokane with his family) 
did a training at our Zone Conference, it was sweet to see him again and hear him be a boss!

Hello people! 
Back to the city grind, eh?  It's an odd feeling to see people and talk to them and such.
This week was nuts! We had over forty lessons and we had times where we could have had more if we had not gotten lost. We met a ton of new people and got. We even got a Book of Mormon chucked at us that was a neat experience..
So to fill all of you in, here is my new life here in the Spokane Valley. My companion is Elder Rich. He is a nerd, like super nerd.  He went to a satellite school for Technical Theater! He enjoys long walks on the beach, magic, computers, girls, and video games. He is the oldest in his family from Henderson, Nevada. That's E Rich in a nut shell. 
Its nice though to have a nerd again, he helps me tons with the phone and spelling stuff and all the tech stuff of life! 
Other than that this week has been full of meetings the new ward trying to memorizing names, and tons of other stuff!  We bike a ton and we get the mini van two days a week so that's how Elder Braman has been for the last week. I do miss Kamiah, ID very much, that place was sweet! 

I hope you have a great week!
Take care and God Bless!

Love Elder Joshua B

August 4th, 2014

Well this week flew by but on the same hand it feels like last Monday was forever ago!  
Lets see, a quick update as I am running short on time.  This week we got a few new investigators, a flat tire, told we were going to Hell by a not so nice lady, and I got bit by a dog!  We had a tiny wind storm that freaked everybody out and much, much more that I cant remember! 
As much as I somewhat dislike it, we had a dog filled week!  It seems like everywhere we went there were dogs, we even returned runaway dogs to a member!  Not to mention, I got bit by one!  The dog came up, sniffed me, never barked or nothing.  Then, BANG!  Stupid thing bit my knee!  I was not a happy person.  It's not that it hurt or it scared me, I was just was mad it didn't give me a fair warning!   It bit me so I kicked it.  Hey, all is fair in love and war, except there was no love there.
Other  then all that,  we had a really good week! Great lessons and some new contacts.  Transfers are this week so for the next 6 days I will be wondering and hating the endless possibility of what could happen!! I hope you all have a great week and take care!
