Home Sweet Home
Railroads everywhere in East Nashville

Cumberland River

Tennessee Titans Stadium - Go Titans
Time is just flying by.. Another week gone! It's unreal! We this last week was great! Not even like we white washed! We we're busy! Oh my! We taught 27 lessons which was great! It was just awesome! We had some big miracles as the week came along. On Monday night we received a call about this sister who was in hospital. She is a recent convert, and she needed a blessing so the next day we called up the branch president and he drove us on down to the hospital, and we gave her the blessing. The lady was so awesome! We went over to her house on Friday night as well. She has a 17 year old grandson who lives with her who is a big country music fan which is kind of rare for East Nashville. He's not a member, but he loves the Book of Mormon so hopefully we can get him out to church and baptize him! They couldn't come to church on Sunday, but I just have such a good feeling about this family! Than on Friday night we received another call for another referral. This referral name was Terry. So the next day we bike on out to his house, and had a great lesson. It was sweet to get two big miracles of referrals who are just awesome. We did a ton of biking last week... I'm so sore! On Saturday we bike 20 miles... Ha it was unreal, but about 7 on Saturday night we're knocking doors, and we met this awesome family! Let us in and gave us water plus they let us teach one of the best Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ lessons on my mission! They just caught the apostasy sooooooo well! It was awesome! They are moving to another section of our area so they are busy right now, but we have an appointment for a few weeks. I'm stoked for them as well. This area is full of soooo much potential it's unreal. We also had a great zone conference on Friday lots of things learned. Nice just being able to set back and learn! The mission is great! So many miracles! I came across this awesome quote this week from Elder Hollands talk "Remember Lots Wife" the quote say: " God doesn't care nearly as much about where you have been as He does about where you are and, and with His help, where you are willing to go." I loved that. So true! Probably the coolest thing of a mission is watching people turn the page over and start to change and become a better person! Life is great! The church is true! Love ya Elder Jaros
