They had a crawdad cook-off with some members so tyler sent home a couple of photos of that!


Hello everyone ! It has been a very hectic week but it all was worth it yesterday when C and Z got baptized. There is nothing like seeing Gods children enter into the waters of baptism and to see the joy that they have from doing so. At the end of the service they both bore pure testimonies that filled the room with the Spirit. I had the honor to baptize Z and Elder Clark baptized C. It is truly a blessing to be able to help others come to know for themselves the truthfulness of the Gospel.

Alright so I have some pretty amazing news ... I have known this for a little while but couldn't say anything until now. But Elder Holland is coming to our mission to speak to all of us !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOO WEE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so pumped !!!!!! It will be at the end of September and the whole mission is coming in for the meeting. Elder Holland is my kinda guy so I am really looking forward to hearing from him. Our mission needs it.

I am so excited for Cory, he is going to be a great "Soldier of God!" there are people being prepared for him to find and invite to come unto Christ.

Well I love you all and am always, always grateful for each of you. I love you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am writing tonight because tomorrow we have a lot to do before church. We are also heading out to Kansas right after church so it will be a long day. But Elder Clark and I are pumped about tomorrow !!! All of our investigators are solid for coming to church and we had a great lesson tonight with the B's. In our lesson last night, Z( the wife) felt the spirit so strong as we taught the Plan of Salvation that it brought her to tears. It was so beautiful because she said, "I can't explain the feeling that I'm having but that it just feels ...  good and I know its right. I am so happy." Times like that make every hardship worth it !!! The Spirit doesn't lie. She and her husband will be getting baptized next Saturday !!!!!! We are seeing so many miracles right now. I am so grateful for the blessings that this Gospel brings. My testimony continues to grow stronger and stronger everyday. I am so grateful for holy scripture that is written for us in these latter days by Gods chosen prophets. Elder Clark and I are having a glorious time together ! Spiritual highs and good laughs ! I love you all and I hope you know how much I really do appreciate your support and prayers. I love you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello !!!!!!!!!!!!!! It has been a great week but sad week. Elder Bischoff went home yesterday and it was rough, but I am happy for him and know that he is doing great ! We have a lot of stuff to do so I don't have much time to write today. But Elder Clark and I are seeing miracles !!!!!! K's husband is doing great !!! He is now preparing for baptism and has seen so many blessings already !! He is reading the Book of Mormon and is understanding it so well, its beautiful ! Our other investigators are seeing many blessings too and that has been a testimony for the husband that what he is doing is right. He has seen their marriage improve since they have been praying, reading, and coming to church. It is amazing to see the change in him in such a short time. I know that this gospel is true and that the church of Jesus Christ is here on the earth. I love you all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
p.s. So pumped for Kevin Andersen !!!!!! He looked like the happiest man on earth coming out of the temple with his beautiful bride. I love you brother !!!!  (Kevin Andersen was Tyler's companion-the one who trained him)

Got another email that said this:  real quick, something really cool that is going to happen today is that K is being confirmed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also a less active family that we have helped get back to church asked if I would bless their little boy and give him a name and a blessing. What an honor !!!! So hopefully that happens today !!!

Thank you so much for the pictures Maa !!! Elders Bischoff and Clark had a good laugh. Things are going great !!!!! K got married yesterday !!!!!!! The Relief Society sisters are amazing !!!!! Jesus Christ church would not function without the sisters. They are so great ! We had the wedding at the church and it looked beautiful. Bishop Hendry performed the marriage and did a great job. K looked so happy and so did her husband. She had a good amount of family attend the wedding and they were all very happy for the two of them. I was the first to give a "toast" and I got emotional like a baby of course. One of her little boys was so funny at the wedding ! I got some great pictures and videos of him. I love that little guy! Now today K will enter the waters of baptism !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She asked if I would baptize her and I am honored to do so. It has been such a beautiful opportunity to see the change and blessings that have come into her and her families life because of the Gospel. And now she will be taking the first step today to be able to return to live with God. Elder Clark and I were asked to give talks in sacrament meeting today so the pressure is on. But I am grateful to be able to. Elder Bischoff goes home this Friday and it is going to be a very sad day, but I am excited for the blessings and opportunities that await him. I love Sundays !!!! I am so grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ everyday and for the sacrifice He made for me. I know and testify that this is the church of Jesus Christ on the earth. It has changed my life and continues to change my life everyday. I love you all and I hope you continue to recover quickly Maa.
