This week we literally watched a guy pop the curb, drive across
10 feet of grass, through a gas station lot, to the other side of a
corner all to just bypass a red light. Yep - that's Memphis.
This week was pretty great. We had awesome lessons with our
top investigators and we have started planning baptisms! We
are totally going to baptize this week and I'm SO excited! Two
kids are getting baptized, Merlin and Arian. They are the only
non-members in their family. We will also baptize a girl named
Ivonna who is a daughter in a returning less active family. It is
SO amazing to finally see some fruits from our labors.
We went to the national barbecue cooking contest down on Neal
Street. A member gave us free tickets and it was amazing! It was
literally the best barbeque I have ever eaten. Beale Street was also
super awesome. All the restraunts had live bands going and their
Thanks for the Utah State Shirts in the package. Elder Spencer and
I wore them today. We went to look in Big Daddy's Pawn Shop and
found some awesome guns. We also played soccer and frisbee with
the district. I'm really out of shape. Love you guys!
Love Elder Merrill
