Elder Hawks Goes Home...

Elder Hawks goes home tomorrow.  As far as how things have been gong here, we have an investigator named Maddie.   She's in her thirties, we found her tracting, she is friends with a lot of Mormons in Apex.  She's probably our most solid investigator,  We have yet to meet her husband, but we met all of her kids.  They're a great family.

Andrew, he is a king and ruler...owns several businesses; he asked a Mormon friend for a blessing and he invited us to come and give the blessing.  We talked about the priesthood and what gave us the authority to do this and invited him to take the discussions and he accepted.  My new comp will be Elder McKonkie, yes he is related to Bruce.  He's awesome and I'm super excited to be with him.

Love ya!

Solid People...

Hey Mom,

Things here have been well, we weren't left with a whole lot to go on in the area we came in, but things are starting to pick up, we've really hit the members hard with how they can invite their friends.  Fuquay has some wealthier areas so tracting is less effective, but we've found some really solid people on our own efforts and from members so things have been going well.  Elder Hawks isn't too trunk either so that will be good!

Love ya!

Baptism went through...

Hey Mom,

The baptism went through, it was a great experience, the ward helped out a ton which was great.  Usually they leave most up to the missionaries, but they are actually on top of things which is nice.  Here is a picture, there should be more on the way.  We had tons of exchanges this week and we have a bunch next week as well.  Exchanges for days!  That's what we do.

Love ya!

Church is true, book is blue...

Hey Mom!

Things this week have gone well, Jennifer's baptism will be this Saturday at 3pm.  We have the form and everything so it will be a go.  We found a family this week, The Barfield family and we will be going back to teach them this Thursday.  There are several others we have found as well.  The church is true, the book is blue!

Love ya!
