Area: Oxoford, Mississippi
Companion: Elder Cy Despain
Everything is going well with my new companion. He is 20, from Arizona and has learned almost everybody's name since he got here, and it hasn't even been a week yet. We have three dates set, two for the 23rd and one for, having set it last Saturday. Elisha had been talking to missionaries in North Carolina for about a year now and her sister joined the church a few years ago, so now she's ready to take the plunge! Everybody pray for her as we prepare for her baptism.
We have a lot of great things going for us now and I'm very excited. Oxford is going to hit it's influx of people soon and we will have loads of new people to talk to!
I suppose the toughest thing was changing companions and I thought it was going to be hard taking over the area so soon, but we have been MAD busy the past few days! So no worries.
Our lesson with Elisha (Pronounced Uh-Leash-uh) was excellent, we had a member there with us, JP, and he helped immensely in talking with her and helping smooth her nerves. She's very much ready, just nervous about actually doing it it seems.
I got a letter from Grandma Maxine, thank you very much! Everybody remember to read and pray, the gospel of Jesus Christ is real and the Book of Mormon IS the Word of God, finding out is a simple prayer away.
