August 26, 2013

This week was pretty great!! On tuesday we taught this young family!! The dad is a non member, but the wife is a member they have a baby girl who reminds me of sage!! They fed us dinner, and we were there for 3 hours talking to him about the church!! He has a great testimony, and I hope we can baptize him soon!! The temple was great! Everyone should go see!  The Jones family didn't come to church which was sad, or did any of our investigator which was rough, so that means we get to go visit them and ask why! Our (county) fair referrals are doing great.. some are good investigators, but most of them are fake addresses which sucks.. My comp is a crappy driver so i could end up dying out here... just kidding but he does suck at driving; good thing the lord protects us!!  I want to see the Wanda picture on her on the farm!! I lost 10 pounds sense being in the mission field, but i learning how to become a chef so It should get better!! The south is different world! No one wears a shirt, and everyone smokes, and most people only have like 10 teeth haha it's a funny place! I don't like to weekly plan, because it takes 8 hours to do, and I'm always get super bored, but it's how you become a good missionary so we have to do it! My ward mission leader Brother Cook teaches me a lot of stuff about becoming a good missionary, and I'm super grateful for him in my life! I'm doing great! Love y'all Elder Tyler James Jaros

Elder Burgan - Tyler's 1st Companion

Mission President Andersen
Well everybody I'm in Cookeville Tennessee!! It is the home of Tennessee Tech, and it's about the size of Saint George!! I'm in the Burgess Falls Ward, and it's good ward, but the best part is the fact that my area is really taking off, and just in my first weekend we had two baptism!! They are these two ladies my comp had been teaching, and they are great ladies!! Everyone says that I get to count them as my baptism, because I was here when they were baptized!! So yeah I guess I have two now!! There are about 6 other investigators here that should be baptized soon so I'm in a pretty blessed area!! There is one down fall every time I get in a car, and have to go out to country side or to Nashville (about an hour drive) I get supperrr car sickkkk which suckkks!! I threw up 6 times in the first three days, but I got some pills that help, and we will see how I do when I go to the Temple on Wednesday!! My comp is Elder Burgan he's a quiet nice kid from Utah!! He's been out for 6 months, and we get along pretty well!! Besides the fact he is slob, but so was Bret, and I lived with him for 18 years!! haha My District is really cool, and I really like to spend time with them, and Elder V is in it so that's cool! I saw sister (Heather) Jensen at Zone Meeting, and at Transfer, and it was nice to see some one that I actually knew!! But I'm doing great, and I'm really starting to like Cookeville!!

July 31 to August 11, 2013

Elder Jaros at the MTC with his district.
Well this place is pretty cool! And as I have said before I am doing great!! Ryan lives on the 3rd in my building, and so every night at 9:30 we hang out! It's nice to have someone I really know so close!! In my zone there are some kids from cedar, and I've become pretty good friends with all of them. The worst part of this place is the fact that we have worst schedule in America. We have to wake up at 6 and eat at 6:30, and that's went everyone else gets to wake up, and then we eat lunch at 11, and dinner 4, and sense i have the worst schedule here I don't get to see like anyone, because everyone else eats at normal times. But I have seen Dallon yet . I look every where, but i don't have a lot of time to look, but maybe today I will see him!! Love ya ELDER JAROS
