High school football

So this was a good week. Our investigator Lindsey got baptized so
that's always sweet. She was baptized by this kid in our Ward who's
preparing for his mission. He almost drowned her. -__- She didn't go
down all the way so he more pushed down than leaned her back. It was
pretty funny.
We got permission to go to the Powell HS game Friday so support a kid
and his family. Not gunna lie. Got a lil trunky. But TN knows how to
party on Friday nights! They had like booths, vendors and Chick-fil-a
catered. It was legit. They got killed thou, it was 49-7 so yeah. Will
(the kid were teaching) did really well. He was the only bright spot
of that team. Then Saturday was a long day. We went and tried to
contact referrals all day. Nothing. He did thou pull up to the one
trailer in the backwoods that had to wolves. We got out to deliver a
Bible and a super hick with a glock comes out and says "We don't want
none, were baptist." Well forget you bro!
Sunday Lindsey was confirmed and she asked me to do it so that's
always nice. But that night we went to a baptist super church. It was
interesting to say the least. It was just really a rock concert mixes
with political crap. No doctrine. But the people sure got into it. We
got to see some people get saved. In the closing prayer the preacher
was bashing us. It's was pretty funny. We made some new friends so
that's nice.
So that's life in the south to the fullest. Love yall and God Bless

Good in the hood

This week was good. Elder Hansen got shipped down to Chattanooga which
was his first area. I got Elder Stark (Iron Man)! He is legit! A lot
quieter than Hansen but we're having a good time. And how could we
not?! Lindsay will be getting baptized Saturday and we found some
legit families to teach! Also I might get to go to a high school
football game in Powell, TN this Friday!! So stoked for that! A Less
active YM plays on the team as a OLineman and of course me and his hit
it off great. He had a lil bro who isn't baptized and I told him he
could baptize him. He liked that just some things we gotta get done
first. We finally have a Area Book app for the IPads which is sweet.
Transferring and putting all the info from paper into the IPad not so
sweet. It takes forever and ever! But once it's done it will be good.
P-Day we went to a golf driving range and hit a few. I lost a club in
a tree. Don't ask how it just happened. I did go Happy Gilmore on a
bunch of them before that happened. I love the country ghetto here.
It's a fine mixed of hick and hood. We that's it for me. Got doors to
knock and people to teach! Love yall and God Bless. And a shout out to
Sabrina in New York. So the whole appointments falling thru and such.
Welcome to the mission lil sis! Haha

Short and sweet?

This week was good. Our investigator Lindsey is doing awesome and set
to be dunk' d in two weeks.  We are slowly starting to find more
people to teach which is great. Me and Hansen are having a ball.
Transfer call is this upcoming Saturday so we'll see if we stay
together for another round. I also went on exchanges with Elder
Lambert who's from Nashville. He lives in Nashville and got called to
Knoxville...poor kid. Next P-Day we're going Bass fishing so I'm
looking forward to that. That's about it thou.
Love yall and God Bless
