District Meeting, Feeding Snakes and Smashing Cars!

Hey Everyone!

Another great week in Alma Georgia!

District meeting was awesome!   Pres. and Sister Grayson are the best. 
We've met some really cool people here in Alma, Georgia.  

We  got to smash cars last P day.   That was pretty fun!   Nothing like " Be baptized by someone holding the proper bat of God" 
We also watched snakes eat dead mice.   I will soon get a video of me finding a snake and playing with it.   Dad will love that!  Haha

Thanks for the cards, letters and packages!  It's like Christmas when we get mail! 

Everything is going well here!   Have a great week! 

Sorry so and videos took all my time!

Week 2 and Happy Easter!

What's up guys!! 
I'm starting the third week in the mission field! 

Everything is going well, and I am loving the mission.
Great things are happening here in Alma, Georgia! 

I am in one of the smallest areas, in terms of members.   It's a branch and on a good day, we will have 20-25 people at church on Sunday.   That's about to change.
The Saturday before Easter,  we had probably close to 100 people at our branch cookout.  Friends,  family, nonmembers, and members all had a good time conversing, and enjoying the food. 
Our  Branch Presidency is awesome.   President Peterson, Bro Roberson, Bro Toras are really making a difference.  They are excited to see the branch grow, and together we work really hard towards achieving that goal.
All the members of the branch are very welcoming, as is EVERYONE  in Alma.
This is an area where people smile and wave at you, and ask how you're doing.... a couple times I was like... what?   But, I'm  getting used to it. haha.

We  have some awesome investigators.   One couple, who is golden, already wants to be baptized, which is amazing!.
It's awesome,  as a missionary,  to see your investigators grow... even within a few visits

So the food down here is awesome...... good southern cooking!
I had collared greens for the first time.... wasn't bad haha

 We are mostly a biking area, even though we share a car.
I  haven't ridden a bike since I was like 12, so it was a bit of a change.  Since I'm  fat and lazy,  I go like 2 miles per hour on the bike lol  But, I'm getting used to it... not really.  haha
I really miss long boarding though.

I'll definitely start sharing more videos and pictures soon.  Technical difficulties.  haha

But, for now do something fun,  do something different,... preferably legal though.
 Live life well, and don't be to serious.  
ALWAYS  remember the importance of Easter and the true meaning of it. 
Remember the sacrifice Jesus Christ made, even when all abandoned him. 

Even though Easter has past, I encourage everyone to watch the  #Prince of Peace video. It's amazing!  

Have a great week guys !!

Week 1 - Alma, Georgia


I am doing great!  My first week here in Alma was good.  Learned about some of the investigators and in-actives.  Learned that I actually need to buy food for myself or I'll starve.  haha

Anyway, the people here in Georgia are really nice.   It's a different way of life.  Strangers wave at you, smile and say how are you?  If I did that in Ohio, people would look at me like I was crazy.  :)  Bro Peterson had us over for dinner on Thursday.   We had some good southern food. 

Alma is a branch.  I am learning of the many challenges of living in a branch.  Ward council consisted of the presidency and us.  Very small.

So yes,  Elder Hill and I live in a double-wide trailer.  I will definitely be sending pictures of that soon.  :)   The weather here can be crazy.  We were directed by the mission president to stay indoors on Wednesday because of the bad storms.   We ended up hanging out in the church building because tornadoes and trailers don't go together very well.  haha

If you have a chance, watch the Easter video Prince of Peace for Easter.  Have a good week!
