Nashville Zone

Dear Family and Friends,

It has been a long week with everything being new again with a new transfer. I do not like this feeling, however, the teaching has been good and it is great to work with the members. I am looking forward to getting used to the area. We were very busy.

On Wednesday, we had a meeting to meet the new mission president and his family. They are awesome and so excited to be here. On Thursday, we went down to Cumberland to help the elders there because one of them had a bike accident. His bike handlebar impelled his thigh. It was pretty gross. I am loving being close to the city again. The people are a lot more of a cultural mix here. The ward is a transient ward with a lot of move ins and move outs. It is pretty cool to have Andy Perez as a ward mission Leader.

I am having fun and working hard.

Have a good week and see the good.

28 ¶Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11)
