Another great week has gone by. We did a lot of service this
past week and I really loved it. Also I can't believe Christmas
is almost here! Make sure everyone knows my new address
to send me cards and gifts! (hint hint)
1403 Golf Course Drive
Jonesboro, AR 72404
The ward here is having their Christmas breakfast on Saturday
so that should be pretty fun. We have just started teaching this
awesome lady. Her husband was baptized about 10 years ago
in Oklahoma. He hasn't been able to come to church since they
moved here because he works every Sunday. But they came
yesterday and it was awesome! We went to their house last
night and taught an awesome plan of salvation lesson. I really
hope that she gets baptized.
We had an Elder in our district go home this week for medical
reasons. It was kinda hard to see him go because he came out
with me. We have been serving in the same district since we
got to Arkansas. I know it was for the best and we are all praying
really hard for him.
We are going down to Little Rock tomorrow night for the Christmas
Zone meeting which should be pretty awesome. We have so many
members that want us over for Christmas! We will have to work
out some things about how we can Skype on Christmas Day!
Tell everyone I say hello and I love you guys!
Thank you for everything!
Love Elder Merrill

Super Saturday is held once a month, usually for youth 14+ for the Searcy Stake.
There are 11 units in the stake. Some units drive 2-3 hours to participate in activities.
