I am now serving in Quincy, IL with the best district in the world! So, fun fact. 4 of us in our district of 6 came out from the MTC together, and Elder Wood (my MTC companion) is one of my Zone Leaders! And my new comp, Elder Brooks, is awesome! Hey, Danny Fey! Elder Brooks is the guy that you worked on in physical training back in Provo! <–Small world!
So, Quincy. Loving this place. It is so different being here! We actually get people to church! In my last area, we would get like 40-60 at church, and we didn’t even have pews. Here, we get 280 to sacrament meeting, we have a huge, beautiful stained glass window behind the pulpit, and we have the most amazing choir ever. Elder Brooks, our District Leader, and I cover the North area. so, funny story about our area…within a 2-mile radius of our home (we have our own house, holla!), there are 34 churches and 40 bars. Yup.
We have so much work to do here – it’s great. We’re shifting our focus to the less-actives and the part-member families. We both felt impressed by the Spirit that if we focus on those, we will not only have great success, but also that the Lord would supply the investigators.
All in all, I love life right now.
Faith and Honor,
