Vegas Baby!

Elder Fallon is fresh out of the MTC and well on his way around Nevada! He was transfered from Provo to North Las Vegas on Monday, Feburary 25th, 2013. Elder Fallon will be tracting in areas around Nevada, California, and Arizona. The Nevada Las Vegas West Mission takes in the west side of I-15 in Las Vegas and North Las Vegas. The mission also includes Beatty, Indian Springs, Pahrump, Mesquite, Logandale and the area up to Panaca. Because of the recent creation of the Nevada Reno Mission there has been a re-alignment of the Nevada Las Vegas West Mission. The Nevada Las Vegas West Mission includes the following Las Vegas stakes: Elkhorn Springs, Highland Hills, Lakes, Las Vegas, Lone Mountain, Meadows, Redrock, Sandstone, South, Spring Mountain, and Tule Springs. Three stakes from the Nevada Las Vegas Mission were added to the NLVW Mission: the Nevada Logandale, Mesquite Nevada, and Nevada Panaca stakes.  Elder Fallon was one of 26 new sister and elders who joined the Las Vegas Nevada mission on Monday. Right now there are 171 missionaries serving in the mission. There are 28 Spanish speaking elders, 16 sisters, 127 English speaking elders plus we have 11 senior missionaries serving in the mission right now. In the mission there are 11 mission zones and 14 stakes.  The Las Vegas Temple is not in the mission, however, the missionaries have the opportunity to attend the temple once each quarter.

This is President and Sister Black. Jerry Beck Black and Debra Dunn Black are parents of four children and grandparents of twelve grandchildren. Their home is in the Cameo Park Ward of the Sandy Utah Alta View Stake. President Black is a former director of LDS Correctional Services for the Utah Salt Lake City Area, stake president and counselor, bishop, branch president, and missionary in the France Paris Mission. President Black was a dentist.

Sister Black is a former secretary/Relief Society representative for
LDS Correctional Services, ward Primary president and teacher, ward Young Women president and
advisor, counselor in the ward Relief Society presidency and stake missionary .

 This is the Las Vegas, Nevada Temple. Every few weeks, Elder Fallon will have the opportunity to go and do work in the temple. Gordon B. Hinkley once said "The temple is concerned with things of immortality. It is a bridge between this life and the next. All of the ordinances that take place in the house of the Lord are expressions of our belief in the immortality of the human soul." Elder Fallon is more than anxious to serve the Lord and the people of Las Vegas for the next two years, and is excited to learn his way around his area, mostly by bike. He send his love and prayers. His current address is:

Elder Logan Fallon
Nevada Las Vegas West Mission
4455 Allen Ln Ste 140

Adventures of the MTC

Elder Fallon has had quite the week at the MTC. He sends his regards back home and would like to let you all know that he is doing well and has high spirits! So far this week, Elder Fallon has realized he had forgotten his church shoes, tennis shoes, and immunization records at home, become well aquainted with the MTC foods, and the dangers they hold, become a District Leader, and above all, has felt the spirit and grown closer to the Savior through a weeks worth of classes where he lives, breathes, and dreams about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Although he is enjoying his time with his companion, (whose name just happens to also be Logan,) Elder Fallon is all too excited to leave the MTC food behind in 6 days, and head to Nevada where he will be able to partake of the foods the members prepare for him, as well as cook for himself. He wishes you all the best times during the upcoming two years, and challenges you all to look for the hand of the Lord in your life. If you would like to send a package or letter to Elder Fallon, there is still time!!!!! Here is his updated address:

And so the journey begins! Elder Fallon left for the Missionary Training center in Provo, Utah, on Wednesday, Feburary 13th, 2013. With a fresh hair cut and a new pair of shoes, this future Elder was ready to leave his current life behind, and enter a new life in which he would be preaching the gospel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and growing closer to the Savior for 2 years. But before he can be released into the world of missionary work in Las Vegas, Elder Fallon will spend a total of 10 days at the MTC (pictured below.) Where he will learn to become a perfect and proper representative of Christ, and how to properly butter his bread, and eat peas at the dinner table. Elder Fallon will become acquainted with the Missionary schedule. He will rise at 6:30am every day and retire to bed again at 10:30pm. In between, Elder Fallon will spend his time reading and studying the gospel, and proselyting to the people of his district.
If you would like to send Elder Fallon a letter his current MTC address is as follows:
Elder Logan Fallon
Provo Missionary Training Center
2005 N 900 E
Provo, UT 84604
