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!
