I love Mail..

Hello, In case you haven't heard there was recently a plane crash in Jamaica, and I would like to tell you a little bit about it. The plane apparently overshot the runway, due to the terrible rain storm that occurred that night. The plane broke into 3 pieces, and lost an engine. Most of the passengers were covered in jet fuel, but luckily nothing exploded. On top of that the plane stopped only a few feet from a cliff that dropped into the ocean. This past week we had a number of missionaries fly home so they could spend Christmas with their families and be home on time to get to school this spring. One of those missionaries was on that flight, and it is currently believed that she is the reason that the passengers on that plane aren't all charred remains at the bottom of the ocean. So if any of you ever worry about me, you shouldn't because this just goes to show you that the Lord watches out for his missionaries.In happier news, Chrsitmas was this week, and I would like to thank those of you that sent me cards, and presents, and what not. It really helped me to feel the love and support of all of guys. Christmas eve we spent the night with a family that loves missionaries, and it was a lot of fun. Christmas day we spent the day at members' houses and got to call home which was really fun. Thank you again for all your love and support.So one of the Elders that went homes' companion is now with me and Elder Thacker, so we're covering 2 wards which is making things really interesting. On the bright side we have met some new people in the other ward. But it makes things really tight with miles. We finally got back in with out investigator that dropped off the face of the earth, and we found out what his problem is. Apparently he believes that Adams' fall couldn't possibly be part of Gods' plan, and that we should all have been born into the Garden of Eden. His problem is that he thinks the Book of Mormon is trying to contradict the Bible in this situation. Our problem is that the Bible doesn't even support his beliefs, and we know that his belief comes from the Jehovah's witnesses. So it's really tense right now, but we're going to try and fix it Wednesday night. So if you could pray for us that'd be great. We currently have some new people that we're trying to get in with, but we're not having much luck. On the bright side though we're making a lot of headway with the less actives we're working with and the part member families we're working on. We had like 6 less actives come to church yesterday which was great. So for the next 2 weeks while we have the extra missionary with us, we get to go to 2 churches which was really crazy yesterday. It was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo long, but I can't say I didn't like it because it was cool to get to see all the different stuff that happens in different wards.Today we're taking some pictures so I should be sending some home very soon.Love you all, Ttys

  1. That missionary wasn't Sister MEADOWS, was it????

    She served here in the Ellijay branch and was such a joy to be around.
