Dear Friends and Family,It has been a great week here in the Missouri St Louis mission! As a mission we are a little behind our projected goal for 453 baptisms in the year 2015. But This week I feel like we really picked up a lot of the slack. O'Fallon zone had several baptisms just over this past weekend, and we are having one this weekend!

Dear Family and Friends,It has been a hot and humid week here in St Louis! So everyone should enjoy the beautiful non muggy wet heat of the desert! But I am glad that Summer time has finally rolled around. Not a whole lot has happened this week, we finished the first week of the transfer and we are finally starting to settle in a little bit.
On Friday I don't think it ever stopped raining once! It just down poured all day! In fact there is was so much rain that the corn fields started to flood, parts of them were almost comlpetely under water. We got flood warning alerts on our phone. We had a dinner that night down in Mascoutah and part of the road was covered in about 6 inches of water. Our basement even started to flood, but luckily we got that taken care of before it got bad!
Through the coarse of this past week we picked up a bunch of referrals including one of the zone leaders investigators and an investigator from the Columbia sisters! So this week should be a good one. Hopefully things turn out and we get to teach lots of lessons and help a bunch of people come closer to Jesus Christ. Today for P-day us and the East St Louis Elders are going to go into St Louis and visit the city zoo! I am really excited for that!
Hope that everyone has a great week! Be safe and God Bless!

Dear Family and Friends,I sure hope that everyone is doing great, I know I am. Things here in the MidWest are really starting to heat up! It has been really rainy and humid too, which I have discovered is a really weird combo. I was so used to Utah were when it rained it was dry and cooler temperatures. Here it just gets humid and stays hot!

Dear People I care about,Another week has scampered on by! The days just keep moving.. I am starting to understand now when people say that the days are long, but the weeks are short on a mission. That is definitely true. Time is just really weird as a missionary! It is something you can't explain..

Dear Friends and Family,well it seems like summer has started to arrive here in the lovely Mid-West. Everything is so green, and the tree's are everywhere! I still can't believe how different it is out here, than it is back west. I've even started to notice how different Missouri is from Illinois. Once you cross over the river, the landscape changes so much! But the weather has been pretty nice lately. It hasn't been very hot, but it has been rainy and way humid. There have been several storm and tornado warnings throughout the week, but everything has been okay.
