After the Memorial

HEy no time again! so we have to go to a lesson in 15 minutes, and I’m emailing today because of Memorial Day and we had Zone Conference yesterday. If you don’t know what that is, it’s where a bunch of missionaries get together, you hug/shake hands, then get your mind blown and your spirit humbled by whoever may be teaching, be it mission president, his wife, other elders, and the Holy Ghost. There’s gonna be a historical broadcast going down on June 23rd or so, and EVERY meeting of the Church is being adjusted to accomodate it. It takes presidence over a baptism. Which is SICK. I’m SOOO stoked ot be a missionary right here, right now, and I’m so excited for all those who are preparing to leave right now because I know that they are going to be sooo much better than I am/have been/ will be. THE LORD IS HASTENING HIS WORK. So be a part of it, or get left behind! That’s kinda the plain truth, Elder Pickett-style. But don’t take it from me. Pray to know. And declare NOTHING BUT REPENTANCE unto this generation!!!
Love you, bye.

Hey all, it’s me again! This week went by super fast! I’m freaking out how quickly time is slipping out of my hands. It’s been a good week though. Better than I thought it’d be opening up a new area. But me and Alvarez are gonna rock it! We’ve already seen some cool miracles. We met a lady the other day who had attended church for a time with her friend before, but her friend had since moved. Before we knew that, we felt prompted andĀ asked if she was looking for anything, and she said yes, then told us her story. We’re looking forward to meeting with her and her family and baptizing them!
The branch is cool, and we’ve got good members, who should be able to help us out a lot. We’re definitely on the upswing here, and I’m looking forward to ‘catching the wave’ as Elder Nelson put it in conference.
I still haven’t seen Uncle Bill or Aunt Judy yet, but I drive past the street they live on almost everyday haha. There’s at least one member of the branch that actually knows them. We’ll see what happens as time goes on.
Take care everyone! Live worthy of miracles the Lord wants to give you!

It was so good to see most of my family on Mother’s Day. I think it’s perfect, cuz I got to see the rest of them who weren’t there in person not too long ago. I had a sweet short moment alone with my mom, who is the BEST mom in the whole wide world, and all others on which God has placed His children!

Time goes by all too quickly… I’m in a new area now, and I feel like my time in Glendale was just a blink of an eye, along with the rest of my mission. My sisters are all bigger and older and different, but in a good way, haha. Dad’s got a sweet beard coming back and enjoying the time he has to do so before he gets called to be a bishop or other stake calling that requires him to shave it off. I was very happy to see that all was well back on the homefront.
Leaving Fletcher was hard, but I left knowing I did good, and I’m happy to have found and fallen in love with so many great people. I wish all of them well, and I’ll see them again.
I’m now in the El Molino branch, and we’re gonna do our best to make it a ward! We’re starting from scratch, so we’ll be running on pure faith, like my companion says. The miracles are gonna be amazing, but I know God’s going to try my patience haha. It’ll be great!
I love you all, take care!
