Mississippi is so different from Utah, there are so many trees and it's just flat. My District is amazing. Elder Mobley went to Herriman and played football and graduated the same year as me. Elder Grey is from Logan. Elder Clements in from Idaho, Elder Bennett went to Herriman also and Elder Jack is from Micronesia and is waiting for his visa to go to Australia. Pics will come.
Church was great but it wasn't the best Sunday, we had some problems with an investigator and we needed to drop him so that he can figure some things out in his life. So it was a really hard and emotional day.
I have interviews with President this week, so we'll see how that goes.
A typical day is we go meet with investigators, some less active members, and tracking. On my first tracking day we met Regina who is just a sweet heart. She loves the Lord and loves to serve others. We were supposed to meet with her on Monday but she is taking care of sick mom during the weekends. So were going to call her later to make an appointment to come visit her. The other day we came across an older lady named Irene. She just turned 93 and is the cutest grandma. While we were talking with her, I could tell that she has dementia because she told us the some story about 5 times but she a doll. She served in either WW1 or WW2 as a nurse. We'll be visiting her just to serve her.
Um the food here has been okay. Haven't had any southern cooked food. Mostly eating at McDonalds. We went to a place called Newk's which is just like Zupas and Mcalister's deli. So the food is the same old.
I am so excited for Jared to be starting his Mission papers and for Kade’s mission call.
That is so awesome that Mikey had fun on his date and is going through the process of getting his Patriarchal blessing. It will help him in his life and help guide him.
My companions are great and they are teaching me so much. I'm learning something new everyday. I'm taking every day one day at a time. Love you guys and miss you so much.
It's great to be in a trio. My companions are awesome and are helping me each day. I was wondering when did Dave Johnson serve in Mississippi cause some people might remember him. It was raining all yesterday and it's kind of cold here.
This last week was interesting with meeting with investigators and tracking. Just trying to get in the groove of things. The people are great here, they are so friendly and no ones afraid to talk about Christ.
Love you so much!!!!
This is McKenna's first apartment. It is in a nice area and has a washer and dryer in the apt. They have a car right now which is nice since it has been a little cold. She loves the green trees.
