It has been many moons since last I wrote, and a long time since I have last sent a huge group email. Let it suffice to say, life has been unpredictable.
I will go over some highlights that have happened between the last time that I wrote and now. This is more for myself and my personal recording purposes, so bear with me and my shorthand. This my be incoherent, but hopefully it will not be illegible.
I have been many places and seen many things since last I wrote.
To name a few,
I have been inside the Sam's Club home office in Bentonville
|Call me a supplier :)|
I have participated in a worldwide missionary broadcast (the first in over 10 years)
Some other updates on people that I taught, found, and loved out in Rogers.
|Magdalena, Ana, Davina, David, and I|
|The Aguirre Family and Elder Noriega|
|Elder Noriega and Jose!|
I have served in the entertainment capitol of the midwest, none other than Branson Missouri, home of the live shows. Many of the members have their own shows or perform. To name a couple,
|Six Brothers (the Knudsens)|
|The Hughes Brothers|
To protect their privacy, no last names, but they are some of my favorite people ever!
DJ! She is so cool and so faithful
|Myself, DJ, and Elder Fielding|
|Elder Fielding, Stacey, and I|
I had the incredible opportunity to train some new missionaries. My first 'kinda' trainee was Elder Noriega all those months ago in Rogers, but since then I have had the opportunity to train the following Elders
|Elder Fielding and I at Liberty Jail|
|Elder Hutchings and I|
|Elder Butler and I|
But life in Branson was good, and difficult. We were on bicycles for a little bit. That was rough. We made it through though.
I am now in Aurora Missouri, a sleepy little Route 66 town in the heartland of America. It boasts a population of 7,000-ish inhabitants and is next to the similarly-sized town of Monett. It is about as diverse, if not less, than my good little town of Ione.
My new companion is Elder Bayles, a cowboy from Colorado. He is a good one. A picture will be included in the near future.
Anyways, enough about me.
I was snooping on mormon.org and found this video. It is the funniest church-produced video that I have seen in a long time. Check it out!
Have a blessed week!
Sorry for the information overload, but had to catch up somehow!
