Morganton is beautiful!

Hello!!! Things have been going pretty great overall! It was kind of tough to leave so soon, but I have been loving it here so far. It blows Lexington out of the water.  It is a lot prettier, and seeing those mountain hill things has been so great!! My companion, Elder Jackson,  is from Nampa Idaho, and he has been out for 8 months. He is a really good elder, and we seem to get along really well and have a
good time. Oh yeah that was pretty intense mission conference with Elder Zwick.  I wrote pages and pages. The main theme is to simplify, intensify, and testify. Just really short powerful lessons. That was the main focus of it. He even told us they are working on a new preach my gospel, so there will be a lot of change happening!
There is a lot of really great work going on here too. They have been working with an elderly couple, the Earls, and they are ready for baptism. She is having a hip surgery in May and they want to be baptized after that in June, so that is really exciting! They are great people! Then there is another famil, the Evans, and they are about ready to be baptized too. They have even been doing missionary
work too I guess and brought us another family, the Watts, and they both have been super excited  about being sealed in the temple! When people put that in their sights there isn't much that stops them. It is really an exciting happy time, and a lot of good is happening here. It sounds like things are going pretty well at home!
Well overall I'm doing pretty great and happy! I hope to stay here for awhile, and get to know these great people, and help them as much as I can. They are really great. Thanks for all that you do have a great week.  See ya.
