Weekly Post!

Today's e-mail was amazing! It is amazing to watch Elder Fallon grow closer to the Savior, and stronger in the gospel with each passing moment. He is counting down the days until April 13th, when he will gladly welcome one of Heavenly Father's children into the world of the gospel. He was excited to share that he has set another baptismal date for an other investigator! His name is J.B. Nelson, a 16 year old whose parents have recently become active in the church again. Both Elder Fallon and Elder Herlin are excited for J.B. and really, truly feel that he is going to do well.

Elder Fallon has promised pictures this week, meaning they will be here by Saturday! Prepare to see Elder Fallon in action! (finally!!!!) In his spare time, (P-Day) He enjoys traveling to the small local market to buy steaks for $2.00 each, experimenting with different shaving techniques to reduce the amount of dry skin and redness he incurs due to the lack of moisture in the hot Nevada air, and epic nerf dart battles he participates in against Elder Herlin. It has become a P-Day tradition to run around the apartment in their shorts and socks, pelting each other with nerf darts, and then race around the apartment to find them all again.

Currently, Elder Fallon is studying in the 132 section of the Doctrine and Covenants on his own, and is studying in Psalms, 21 with Elder Herlin. This past weekend, they traveled to the mission home in North Las Vegas for a meeting. The new missionaries have been out for just over a month, so the Mission President wanted to gather all of the Sisters and Elders together with their trainers to share their successes and the progress they are making within the mission field.

This week, Logan was blessed with the kind actions of some of the local ward members. He and Elder Herlin were preparing to go to the local market on Friday, to pick up some last minute weekend groceries, when a family from the ward stopped by to visit. They explained that they were going to Utah to shop at Costco, (a place similar to Winco.) and offered to pick up some groceries and drop them off to them when they returned. How amazing is that family!? To drive 3 hours to pick up some extra groceries for the Elders. Although Logan and Zach, (Elder Fallon and Elder Herlin) politely declined the offer at first, the family insisted, saying that they would love the opportunity to serve the people who serve the Lord. They returned the next day, Saturday, to the Elder's apartment with fruits and vegetables, and snacks, and bread, and chips, and salsa. Logan expressed how grateful he was to the family for serving them so generously, and his gratitude towards the Lord for providing such amazing ward members within his mission boundaries.

Overall, Logan is enjoying his mission, and striving to make the next two years, his best two years. and he sends his love and prayers.
