So this week I went to Laplace on exchanges, and I met Brother Andrews. Who is my Dads cousin, It was super fun to be around him he pointed out our cleft chin. That was really fun and so was being in Laplace, there are some really cool missionaries there. In our ward in the next little bit we will have 4 baptisms I am super excited for all those missionaries. My companion and I have been working hard mostly finding trying to grow our area. Lots of knocking doors and looking through the area book.
Life is good even though lots of people in the Zone that are sick so we are working through that other than that nothing but sunshine and rainbows The Laplace district is doing so much better. We went to their District and instructed, the spirit was super strong. Elder McCutchean said that it isn't normally like that but I felt the spirit super strong. They are all doing really well, Elder Carson is an amazing missionary. I was really impressed my him, he is ready to, as it were strike out on his own. As all new missionaries want to do even if they love their companion, they just want to try it out on their own. The other missionaries in the apartment are good missionaries as well. I think they are not feeling like good missionaries, this is having a positive affect on them because they are pushing themselves harder and harder, and getting more and more stuff done. I was really impressed by the missionaries there.
Thanks so much let me know if there is anything I can do for you. Love ya President!
THE VISION OF THE SOUTH
"Make no small plans: This is the vision I have for the South. I believe that one day the South will baptize more people into the church than all other English speaking missions in the world together....We will see the time when we will baptize hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands...In your day you will see a million members of the church in the South. There will be temples plural in the Southern States. What a great call you have to serve with these marvelous people." President Spencer W. Kimball
