Hello Everyone,

This week was a good week.  We had a lot of fun finding people and teaching as well.  We also did a lot of service this week.  First of the week we helped move in this old man who used to live in Alabama.  Then the next day we helped a young family move from the Covington ward to ours.  We are very excited because they are new members of the church and the wife is the daughter of our eternal investigators, so they are going to get them to church and hope and pray that it will change their hearts!

Thursday we had interviews with our new mission president.  Also, we got to talk to his wife so it was fun to get to know them.  And as well, it was my year mark so that's pretty cool!  Saturday we helped out with some more yard work and we got breakfast and lunch.  So it was a pretty good deal.

We found out that one of the coolest members here got in a car accident.  So we went and saw bro. Price to see how he was doing.  He was t-boned while getting a ride to his doctor appointment.  But he is all right.  He has some whip lash and a goose egg on his head but still awesome!

Then on Sunday we went to see a less active member.  We talked family history work with her and elder Mac was seeing where his name came from.  I talked to the husband (not a member) about guns and hunting.  So it worked out.
Thanks for the prayer and everything else you all do!  Love ya!

Baptism last week


Monday, July 13, 2015


Hello everyone!,

This week was good and yes [brother] Knight did get baptized!  So we were picked up by the Knights to go to the baptism.  The baptism went well.  Bro. knight is a very enthusiastic man with a loud voice.  After he came out of the water he yelled hallelujah, with his deep Southern accent.  Afterward we went to a BBQ at his house and we had the Harpers come over and most of the branch did as well.  Then Sunday he was confirmed a member and received the HG.   This morning we helped out with a member moving in from Alabama.  That is why this letter is so late in the day.  Then tomorrow we are helping to move in Tamea and her family, daughter of the Harpers.  The Harpers are not members.

Love you all very much.  You all take care.  Thank you!!!!  

p.s. I can’t get my card reader to work, so I will send [pictures] next week

4th of July in Georgia

Hello everyone,

This week was awesome!  On Tuesday after district meeting we always go to Chick-Fil-A because we would be destroyed on miles on our car if we went home and ate.  While were in line a member walked in and payed for all [of] us.  Yes!  Especially since it was the end/beginning of the month and we didn't have any money.  Then on Wednesday we met our new mission President, President Foote.  He's a really nice man.

This Saturday we have a baptism still set (cross your fingers).  Bro. knight is getting baptized then afterwards we are having a BBQ at his place.  Super exciting!  He's been coming to church with his wife for two years now and is finally going into the waters.  So that is coming up soon.  

This week was a good week.  We were able to see a lot of miracles happen.  Yesterday we were tracting in a neighborhood that I had not been to before.  While we were knocking, we knocked on the door of this man who was watching his daughter and helping clean the house while his wife was off at work.  He let us in on first contact!  So we sat down and started to share with him about the gospel.   At the end he told us that he had been looking for a church for their family.  We were like, “yes!” we have a place for you!  So we invited him to church and he is willing to listen to us.

Almost all week long it rained.  I think it was God prepping for the 4th of July because on the 4th it rained 5 different times that day.  Most of the day on the 4th we went and saw members in the Jackson area.  Then at 6:30 pm we had a BBQ at the church behind the building.  Behind our [church] building on the 4th people come and park and to watch the fireworks.  I guess it has a good view.  But it was awesome because people were coming and having hot dogs who we didn't even know and walking into our building.  Because we had access, people were able to see the building and go inside and see it.  But the sad part was that we had to leave [before the fireworks] because it was time.... 9:30 and so we didn't get to see anything.

Shout out to all my friends heading on their mission soon.  Have fun, be obedient, and baptize!!!

Love you all, thank you for all that you do!
