well I left Lagrande on Monday and I got to Jerome/Twin on Wednesday!
My comp's name is elder Perdue and he's from Dallas Texas! he's a pretty cool lil guy :) haha he sang in the BYU Men's Choir for a year before he came out so thats pretty fly. Haha I'm gunna get him to sing to some of our investigators ;) but ya he's super spiritual and very prepared for the work! Haha he is still really quit and very nervous but the awesome thing is even if he's terrified to talk to someone he'll do it if I ask him to so that's awesome! It'll be a good transfer! So we have a 3 week transfer right now! which is pretty crazy! aha me and Perdue wont get transfered at the end of it but there will be 35 new missionaries comeing into the Twin falls mission! thats crazy! So ya everything is changing pretty quick! President Cannon goes home in a week and President Curtis is coming to be the New Twin Falls mission president! It'll be neat to see all of the changes but its pretty sad to see P-cannon and sis Cannon leave! They've done their time though lol!
Its a town about the same size of Lagrande just outside of Twin Falls! Me and Elder Perdue cover 3 wards who all meet in the same building which is super cool! it makes sunday's so much easier because we don't have to drive around all day going to meetings in different buildings! The area is half rural half town. The farming area's are super cool! The people are just so humble and love the Lord! our wards are pretty fired up about missionary work but theres not a whole lot of work going on.. The last missionaries in the 2 area's that had our wards were ether super lazy or spread way too thin so there wasn't to much happening in any of our wards but thats ok! Me and Elder Perdue are going to work like crazy and get this place on Fire! Our Bishops Thompson, King, and Radford are way cool! and they are so ready for more missionary attention! So we are ready to get it done!
Our ward Mission leaders are freakin sweet too! Bro Perry, Wight, and Walker! They all said they will come out with us whenever we need! Probably the best thing going in our area is a ward missionary Bro Black!! he is so awesome!!! He went out with us on Saturday in the middle of his family reunion! He pretty much talks the gospel to everyone he meets and he is the fellowshiper for like 7 of our investigators in his ward! I'm excited to work with him and get some stuff done! There’s definitely alot of potential! We teach alot of teenage kids of inactive parents and we are excited to get them coming back to church and get some baptisims! We had a good lesson with a family the Mcmillians Tessa and Eric are 16 and 12 and they want to come to church and now all we have to do is get them a little more knowledge and get the family to church and get them baptized! super awesome!
Me and elder Perdue also found this super awesome guy named Rual just talking to people in a trailer park and he is so prepared! We taught him the Restoration and he accepted everything! When we talked about Joesph Smith he just said that it made so much sense and it sounded right! We had to leave pretty soon after that because his girlfriend who he hadn't seen in 6 months pulled up which he was so funny and happy to see her that it was ok that we had to end early! But ya! we are going back and he is so getting baptized!! but ya! the work is good! we definitely have to re-build abunch of stuff but it feels good to work hard and to see an area pick up! hopefully we'll be having a few baptisms here pretty soon! so ya! anything else you all want to know??
I lost my camera on the way over here so I can't send any pictures... pray that I'll be able to find it cuz that has all my picture of my whole mission on it so far.. but hopefully it'll turn up soon and I'll get you all plenty of pictures! Ilove you all and I'm super excited to get to work in this new area! Me and Elder Perdue have been really trying to be obedient so we can be a blessing in the lives of these people! So ya I know when we are obedient to the commandments and we try to be like our Savior we have the ability to have greater companionship of the Holy Ghost!
Love you all!!!!! WHat up frm TWIN MISH!!
