Missionary life is so rewarding!


So little Behi is in the MTC eh? Thats crazy!! Let me know how she is doing!

Is Christie really having a boy?!! Awesome! Man I can't wait to be his favorite uncle. I can't believe Macy is coming down South. She is going to love it!

So anyways we had transfers this last week. Chris Cooksey came with us to the transfer meeting! He loved meeting all the new missionaries. Well Elder Spencer is off in Morrilton now. He is a good missionary. So I picked up Elder Soelberg!! He is the man. He is from Farmington Utah. He went to Snow college for a year. We are already pretty good friends. I know why too. He has the same personality as Shawn Lindsey! So ya he is hilarious. Speaking of which how is Shawn. I miss that guy so much. So ya Elder Soelberg was here for 7 months at the beginning of his mission. He trained my trainer. Now we are both here and I am really excited to see what happens this next transfer meeting.

So on thursday, the day after transfers, we had to go back to North Little Rock to go to Mission Council which is just like a leadership meeting. There we set our mission baptismal goal for the month and year.Those are always the best meetings. I could listen to President Petersen talk all day on the atonement. He is a boss!

But ya this week has been good. We set a date for David Carmichael to get baptized this saturday. The only thing that would keep him from doing this is his poor health. But we gave him a blessing and i'm confident that things will work out. We also are trying to get Brando and Sierra baptized this weekend! O ya! So we taught that family I was telling you about the Gomez's. I love those people. We taught them the restoration last night and it went well! i am excited to see how they progress.

Yesterday was probably the best fast and testimony meeting I have ever been too. It was awesome! Chris got up and bore his testimony!! It completely took me off guard. He bore such a powerful testimony of the power of the book of Mormon. The spirit was so strong.

So Bishop just barely told me how, since we have some general authorities coming to stake conference. So Chris He already has a calling as the guy who is in charge of cleaning the building, he has his own set of keys to the church, and we are already giving him families to hometeach! So he is pretty much a member. And Jessica is doing great too! She got a calling as a secretary in the Young womens! She loves it but she is really nervous about it all. Man things are going so good.

We have zone meeting this tuesday and then we are going to exchanges with the AP's. The next day we are doing exchanges with the Pocahontas elders. (yes that is the name of one of our areas) So ya I am excited! Anyways family I just want to let you know I love and miss ya! I pray for you by name daily and I know you do the same because I can feel it. Thank you for your prayers, patience, and packages!
