Another week gone by, last Monday was the transfer calls, I've now been transferred from Flowery Branch to Level Creek still in the Sugarhill Stake, it would seem this is the last level of the game, and by game I mean mission. The Level Creek Ward is so far really great. We've done some service for a couple families, and of course the whole teaching and preaching the gospel.
The Watkins, a convert family who are just too awesome, had us over for dinner last Friday night with our investigator Jose, he's really investigating and the lesson we had with him was so spirit filled he asked what was that feeling he had inside his chest, it was the spirit we told him. He had never felt it so strong the way he did and he wanted to feel it more. He's been to church now a couple times, before I arrived, he's got good questions those dang anti-Mormon sites though. I already love the guy, but please pray that he doesn't get bitten by homeless people. Last night he told us that on Saturday a homeless drunk man bit his finger like Gollum from Lord of the Rings! He now needs to go to the hospital so it doesn't get infected and die. The things that happen in GA...
Thursday, we knocked and miraculously found some new investigators, Corey and Shanna. They're really cool, Corey's got lots of potential, really cool background story and has traveled from Chicago to Florida to Sugarhill, GA. Check out "From Gangster to Good Man", it's kinda similar. http://www.mormonchannel.org/watch/series/his-grace/from-gang-member-to-good-man

I think just the whole week, the new change of environment, calling, purpose, it's all been really fun.
I'm missing the Flowery Branch, like with all the other wards it feels like I just left family again. Kayla and Penny and Ricky, the members, all were apart of a great memory and story here in GA. But again, Level Creek is still great and I've already gotten to make good friends with these members.
To finish, Saturday evening was good. We taught a lady named Kate Titus, she's been investigating for a couple of weeks and is really solid learner and will be getting baptized at the end of this month with her son, Daniel who will be turning 8. We had a lesson on the Temples with the Wornli Family. She's cool, and really sweet.
Other than that that's about it, hope all is well with you this summer.
Lemme know what's been going on! Stay classy.
Love your friend,
