Went caving on P-Day

Caving pictures - With Sister Bauer
Its the last week of transfers!! Which is nice!! My training is almost over, and I don't feel trained really, but it's okay! I'll figure it all out soon enough!! We had two investigators at church which was rad!! I was way happy! Plus we had an Less active who hasn't been to church for years show up that we have been working with! So it was a good sunday! One of our more solid investigators RJ  he came to church, and he's pretty golden! He struggles with reading and praying though, but he really like us missionaries and he likes our bishop a lot so it's good! And last night we had a super spiritual lesson with him and we set a date of November 16th for him to work on which is great!! I'm pretty excited!! Then our less active who showed up to church is Sister W she is cool, but she said she came for us.. which is the wrong reason, but at least she was there!! But I'm doing great, and I can't believe how fast this mission is flying by!! Love ya Ty

Me and the Jones Boys!!!!!

The YSA sisters had a baptism in a river over the weekend!!!! It was cool but way cold!!!
In the country side! The leaves are just starting to change this week I will take lots of pictures!!

Three months this week!!!! Crazy! I feel like it's been one giant roller coaster, because you have so many ups and downs as a missionary!!! But one giant up we finally had was that the Jones boys were baptized!!!! It was awesome!! We had to wait to baptize them until the dad brother Jones got out of jail or we were able to contact him in jail to ask for his permission so I wrote him on Wednesday and asked to baptize his sons and asked him to write back, but right after I sent the letter there mom sister Jones called me and said that he got out of jail this morning and that we could call him to ask him if we could, and we did and he said yes!! So on Saturday night the Jones boys were baptized!!! I baptized the younger one who is 8 and his name is Tershon!! He is awesome, but at the same time he can be super hard to handle.. He kept telling me that he was going to baptize me after haha but he took it serious and I was grateful for that!! But It was an awesome experience!! I was so happy for them and the spirit was so strong for me!! Now that the Jones are baptized we don't have like any investigators now.. which is no good. We are going to have to work super hard to find some investigators, but I think our game plan for rest of the transfer will be less actives and getting them to be active!! Which is awesome too! We had 2 less actives show up to church on Sunday which was great!! Fall hit Tennessee! And is cold to say the least the air is just way different than back home! But I'm doing great as always! Love Elder Jaros

Fried apple pies!! the best thing on the planet!! No lie

Me and DQ..  we had an awful day so I need some dq

This last week was long!! But okay! I spend a few days up in Monterey with my friend Elder V from the MTC! It was a blast to be always from my area for a few days! Monterey is like the size of Minersville so the work is slow, but there are some great people there! We had zone meeting this week and it was pretty good!! I like the zone leader trainings, but not really the sister training leaders they don't know what they are doing.. They just waste time. The Jones boys are doing great and came to church again!! But we have to get the OK from there dad who is in jail to baptize them so i'm going to have to write him today and ask for his permission. So hopefully he said yes!! It's an awful family situation to say the least, but I love those kids to death! The transfer is half way over so that's a plus!! I'm doing great as always, but I do wish I could of been at the wedding!! But I'm so happy for Bret and Al!! Love Elder J-rose!

Tyler and his missionary friends.

Tyler begged/prayed for a washer/dryer and he got it, Elder Jarvis doesn't get water on his mission for only 1 day out of every 5, so we should feel grateful for what we got.

Tyler at Tennessee Tech Track.
Last week was slow!! But so great because of conference!! I loved every talk so much and I don't think I've ever pay so much attention to anything in my whole life. The Jones family went out of town for the week so no baptism for a little, but sometime soon! We only have like one investigator right now which is rough.. but hopefully soon we can meet some new people! We need the members help! The two themes I picked up on at Conference were Missionary work on Saturday and Marriage on Sunday!! Which is cool because Bret is getting married! My highlights from conference were; 80,333 missionaries! One of those are me! I like Dube talk on always looking forward! And that's something I need to do! Elder Bednar layed down the law about tithing!! Elder Ballard hit hard about missionary work, Eyring in the priesthood and Uchtdorf was awesome!! I like the prophets about his wife and stuff that one was cool! Ochoa always look up was cool!! Conference was just special and it was great experience to be a missionary listening to conference!! I'm doing good! Thanks for the love a support! Love Ya elder ty
