Here's my first report home.....please understand that it is brief due to the lack of time. I will be able to write more to you next Thursday on my preparation day:
My Branch President is Michael Taylor of Branch 67, Brother Kevin Russon is his 1st Counselor and Brother Allan Neilsen is his 2nd Counselor.
My companion is Sister Stephens from Springfield, Ohio. My district has 4 Elders and 4 Sisters in it.
So if you saw above I don't have P-day until next Thursday. My district is so much fun, we all get along great. All of us are going to Mississippi but one, Elder Hult is going to Australia. These last two days have been very overwhelming, but in a good way. We've already started to teach investigators and it's different but the teachers are really supportive. We had a meeting with our Branch President, his counselors and their wives. They are so cool and proud that we are here. They called me to be the Online Coordinator (I'll use it when we write letters to the Branch President.) Oh and I'm Senior Companion here for a few days. I've been seeing alot of people here like Nicole Carter, Aubrey Landvatter, Ashley Moir, Reid and others from high school. I'm having fun but it's hard when they give us 2 talks to write, 5 things to study and lessons to prepare when we only ave a 45 minute break which is our bed time. But it's nice to go through it with other missionaries.
I love you guys so much and I know that I'm supposed to be here. I can already tell that I am growing closer to Christ. You guys are the best family that I could ever ask for. I know that angels are watching over me here.
