The pumpkin hay rolls on tn

Me and Elder smith with our investigator Tim

So blessed to be serving in the temple area. I get to see it daily, and it's just way cool!

The mish homies

Right in the middle is good old David Archuleta!! We had a mish fire side where he came and sang and talked. Super humble guy!

Zoomed in

My apartment

The weeks go by way to fast! It's unreal. Last week was great! We hit our major goals on our numbers, and we were able to work hard. We had a fun service opportunity to help out at the habitat for humanity and build a house here in Franklin. It was way cool. They build a lot of house out here in TN! We also went on exchanges for a good chunk of the week. I went down to Spring Hill TN for a few days which wasn't too bad.. I've forgotten how spoiled I am with a full time car! We walked a lot.. ha. There area is really cool because it's grown soo much! There are lot of members down there, and they just split the ward, and they are planning on doing again soon. Elder Smith I also had one of the wildest lessons of my mission life with our friend Tim. He's the sisters and ours Investigator so we both teach him. They gave of us the wonderful opportunity to teach the law of chastity lesson on Friday night!! It was unreal how much I laughed and cried because of awkwardness! Most people don't really like to talk about it, but he wanted answers for his questions ha! He's pretty funny guy anyways so that didn't help, but he accepted the commitment to live the law of chastity and he's getting baptized this weekend! We also had Stake Conference over the weekend which was great! Good meeting. Great speakers! We had our progressing investigator with us! He's sweet. We still having taught him a lot because he works so much, but he's came to church 3 weekends in a row, and he watched GC. Super solid, but hard to get in with him. Then last night to finish off the week with a bang we had a mission fireside with David Archuleta!! It was a great meeting! He is a super humble person. Doesn't like crowds and lots of people to be around him.. Most of the missionaries were pretty star stuck! It was bad.. Some sisters were falling for him haha! But he shared some great advice about having be Christlike, and he talked about trying to balance the gospel and his music career. He sang a few songs, and answered question. Just a great experience. Oh and I did get to shake his hand! Life is good! Busy as always! Thanks for everything. Elder Jaros
