Oh man what an awesome week. Packed full of insane action and staying busy/grindin for the Lord.
Real sincere and quick Shout out to my big bro Alex and his fiancé Madi getting married in St. George this weekend!!! Catch me there in spirit muchachos!
We are working SO HARD. I am so happy out here just werkin’ for the Lord! He is blessing us so much and also the other companionship in our ward! Elder Stockinger and Elder Adams! I love it here.
Goldie Vela, a little 8 year old who has just lit up my world, was baptized this week. Jake the Snake is her Dad there in the pic. We had the opportunity to teach her and to help prepare her for baptism. It was amazing. The spirit was so strong there and Goldie even gave us shout outs for stuff she had learned.
We ate at like the richest neighborhood in East Tennessee on Super Bowl Sunday. It as unreal. Member’s name is Brother Jones and he is also a chriopractor so we got to teach them about the Book of Mormon and get our backs cracked. Legit. To legit to quit. Brother Jones is kinda less active and he wants to play a round of golf together. So stoked.
We went on two power ups this week. I went with Elder Farnsworth from Peoria AZ up in Kingsport and it was so fun hahaha. He is a funny dude. I also went with Elder Gohr from Idaho and for both of these power ups we went finding all day. Elder Gohr is the man. We played basketball against two black kids in the streets. Balled out. Got called an A-hole that day, classic. Just super fun days. I really enjoy helping out other missionaries and their areas! Kingsport Zone is doing really well!!!
We got smart phones and they’re amazing for the work. They make everything so much more efficient and also have great accessories such as a wifi hotspot. Still and IPhone guy but these Samsungs are sweet.
Alberto Castro is doing so well. He is probably going to propose to his girlfriend this week and he has no concerns whatsoever. Our Bishop thinks he will become a general authority!! Haha he also is teaching Institute!! I have seriously never taught a guy like this. He is so prepared and the Lord is blessing his life as he progresses in the Gospel.
Brandyn is finally going to move out. He hit a stand still in his progression. But he’s taking a critical step in his life. His home just doesn’t have the Spirit. Too stressful for their family financially, spiritually, and relationship-wise.
Angela is still up in the air. She is doing fine, just baptismal date has not been decided. The Lord’s Time isn’t our time.
We met some Awesome new investigators this week. Charlie Hopson is this super prepared homie in the ghetto and Rosa is a Hispanic girl (25 años) that I met at Golden Corral! People are everywhere. More updates on them later.
I have been reading the BOM everyday and committed to read a chapter everyday for the next 20 years. LETS GO! I love 2 Nephi 2 and what it teaches us about the Plan of Salvation and how their is an opposition in all things! If we are on the right path it will always be Uphill.
Just such a great week and our schedule looks fantastic for this week. Everyone going to Alex’s wedding I want to take pictures with yall hahaha (prop).
