Just Checking In
What a handsome missionary. :) He is thriving and enjoying every moment of his service to the Lord. Remember J.B. Nelson from the March 25th post? Well...HE WAS BAPTIZED! Elder Fallon had to privilege to witness the baptism, and to confirm J.B. as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and bestow upon him, the gift of the Holy Ghost this past Sunday. Logan was so honored to have the opportunity to be a part of J.B.'s experience.
It is starting to get a little warm in Panaca! With the average day-time temperature set at about 75 degrees. They haven't received rain or precipitation in any way in 6 weeks, and with the summer sun just around the corner, the Elders are taking extra precautions by stocking up on sun block and chapstick. He and Elder Herlin are still the most successful companionship in the Zone and maintain that leadership by working hard to find and reach-out to those whom are looking for the truth or happiness of the gospel in their lives. It does help that they have developed a great friendship and enjoy working together. Elder Herlin claims that the secret to their success is keeping an open mind, and always expect the unexpected.
Both Elder Herlin and Elder Fallon were able to escape the last transfer that occurred last week, which means they will be companions for another 7-10 weeks. They were both overjoyed to learn they would be staying another few weeks in the boonies of Nevada. Logan has fallen in love with the quiet landscape, the exotic local foods, and the people he has met. I try to remind him that he is changing the lives of the Panaca people everyday, but he refuses the sediment, declaring that they are changing his life. (SO CUTE!)
Overall, Logan is happy, healthy, and LOVING his time with Elder Herlin, and as always, he sends his prayers and love.
