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
