Old Guns and lots of Arrowheads
Its 8:50 why not swing.

Downtown Clarksville

Another week is gone! Just like that! It's the last week of the transfer also so another gone!! I do not think I'm moving anytime soon but I guess we will see what the lord thinks! This week was longer but great!!! We had interview with President Andersen and he talked about being the example of the Zone and having the example area! Which is true and something me and Elder Cragun really need to do is baptism someone! And we got a little closer to that on Tuesday! WE SET A DATE! With Allie! Allie is a single mom with two kids who is writer and she's really good at it too! We had a very spiritual lesson with her that night and we were able to set a date with her for June 14th! But she didn't come to church yesterday :( But please pray for her! She's rad tho! We also got to finish on the exchanges for the transfer! I went to Clarksville Spanish for a few days! They have it hard because they don't have a car.. so therefore they have to bike across giant Clarksville! Which made the exchange kind of hard because it was hot and Clarksville has lots of hills! But it made me so grateful for my mini van haha! I do not miss the bike life! This week is full of Leadership meeting preparing us for the next transfer! We are starting to set goals and set a solid focus for us to work on this up coming transfer which will be great! In our zone we really need to cut back on our Progressing investigators and see more baptismal dates and really more Baptism! Speaking of baptism I was able to go back to Lebanon for Jesslyn's baptism on saturday! Jesslyn was Erica Lynn friend we taught but couldn't baptism because her Mom didn't like the church! But her mom had a change of heart and she was baptized on saturday! It was awesome! It was a great day! Her mom was there and she bore her testimony of the spirit she had felt when she walked through the doors! It was awesome! It was cool to see all the homies back in Lebanon also! But it was a great day! We also had the Nash's at church which was awesome! But i'm doing great and hope yall are too! Love Elder Jaros

I found my street in Kentucky.

First snow cone of the year.

Ping Pong !! Best Exchange.
Time is flying right on by! So crazy! Last week was good! We were busy driving everywhere but it was a good week! We weren't in our area on Wednesday and Thursday which was kind of scary for our own work! So we loaded up Monday night and Tuesday with all our investigators! It went
pretty well! We were able to Meet with an awesome family we tracted into at the first of the transfer they are doing great! They love to just talk to us so we had to rush through the plan of salvation to get home on time but we did it! We also went over to visit an investigator because she can't quit smoking... We wanted to see if she had a testimony of the Book of Mormon or if she was investigated the church and she bore an awesome testimony about the Book of Mormon which was rad! So tonight we are going to present the stop smoking work shop. Hopefully it will go great! We also have a single mom with two small kids, and she is way funny! We have taught her lesson one and two and she is reading so hopefully we can set a date with her this week! Our teaching pool isn't too bad now we build it up a lot so that's a great thing! I spend two days in Morgantown Kentucky! Such an sweet little down! I loved it! It has 2000 people in the town, and a branch of about 75 people so it's doing pretty good! But I've miss the good old southern people that they have in Morgantown! Everyone in Clarksville is army so there is no real southern folk left here... But it was an great exchange! Maybe someday I will serve there! But it was a really good week and Elder Cragun and I even met our goals each day! Besides no one came to church.. But we are working on that! Have a blessed week! Love Elder Tyler James

Good Ole Utah

Farm fields of Kentucky.

Driving In Clarksville.

Nothing better than Jimmie Johns
What's up! Mothers day was great! It was awesome to talk to some of y'all! I love it! Aren't our mothers the best! I sure am thankful for my mother and my grandmother! They are the best! Summer is almost here in Tennessee it seems to be! Everything is green again, and it's getting hot, but it's all good! Last week was good we met all our teaching goals except no one came to church... It was sad, but we did have a less active we been working with there which was rad to see!  But the Mother's Day program was really good here! It was a good Sunday! I wish someone would have made it!  The ticks are back which isn't that cool! But I stay away from them! President has asked everyone to start tracting one hour a day! So that should help everyone! But this week is full of exchanges we won't even be in our area at all which is sad.. But the exchanges are needed! But I'm doing great and hoping we can get a baptism this transfer! But take care Elder Jaros

Just chillin in Kentucky

Looking white and nerdy mowing the lawn hahaha but super white!

Found a four leaf clover but it wasn't the luckiest day of my mish.. But i do love verse 21!

But there are clovers everywhere... my comp is always looking for them but i found one first

So on our way to Hop town Kentucky we were driving down the freeway, and we passed a Horse and wagon on the freeway.. that when you know your in Kentucky hahaha
This week was pretty good! We had our progressing Investigator at church! She is pretty cool! She has been investigating for a long time she has twin boys who are about 6 months old, but she has a hold up of smoking, and can't seem to give it up! But we are going to talk about it tonight! Plus her husband smokes so it's hard for to quit when someone else in the same house is smoking but pray for her! We also have some awesome potential who we are working with! We had a good first week of Knocking doors and found about 15 potential about 6 now but the one is young family who is so golden.. Her name is Jo anna is his name is John. They have two young kids! Army family just amazing people, and we taught them lesson one and went a little into two last week, but hopefully we can help them soon! I spend a few day up in Beautiful Kentucky haha! It's a lot like Tennessee but no hills.. Just flat farm land for days! And everyone has like 2 horses! But I met some awesome people who are investigating the church up there. They have a pretty big ward, but rest of Kentucky which is a part of our zone is all branches! But Kentucky was nice, but I would rather stay here in Tennessee. I'm starting to learn how to talk army.. like ask people what there mos is and other stuff.. I had no idea they had there own language but they do. I'm working on it my comp is big into the army so that's good. But I'm doing good. Hope y'all are too! Love Elder Jaros.. Oh Happy Birthday Kyle/Cinco De mayo! and Happy Mothers Day!
