Our last adventure today was a hike to Amicalola Falls. It was a pretty good taste of what hikes in Utah were like, Olympus, Brighton, Timpenogas if I can recall back before the mission. Kinda excited to do things like this more often.
For last adventures, this one was quite memorable, afterwards we went to the Dawsonville Outlets, then to the stake center for a short time nerf war. Oh the mission is great, does it have to end? There's so many things that come to my mind when I think about the mission. The first is how fast time has gone by. The second, how time has probably been about average for the rest of the world. You've probably heard me say that every week since I've left home.
So here's a recap of Georgia//
This last week ...
We had an exchange Tuesday with Elder Anderson the nostalgia was ever present as it was our trainees who were together while we reminisced the Monroe days we were greenies together. The Level Creek Ward was on fire again and we had some good lessons with some of the focus families. We've set different goals to get some of these families back to church and incredibly half way through we reached that goal. Thank the lord!
Emma Sheriff and Chynna Bell were able to make it to church. It was great because Elder Parker of the Area 70 spoke. Hallelujah! Both did great. Emma is very spiritually prepared and her baptism should be this Saturday. Hooray! Chynna too still desires to be baptized soon, and as for Mary, Her baptismal date has been pushed back. Last night as well was great, a member from the stake put on a presentation called "What do Mormons Believe?" And the turn out was great, about 12 Nonmembers were there and I think all learned more of the significance and importance of the restoration.
This coming week ... should be peachy.
We will be busy finishing up lessons for a baptism for Emma, making calls to members, converts, and other families for the farewell fireside next Wednesday, and then the other final preparations for the next transfer. The mission is planning on transferring me and Elder Valentine out of Level Creek and whitewashing it with a new set of sisters. Out with the old in with the new it would seem.
So lots of finals and lots of lasts this week!!!
That's it for now, until next time, wishing you the best week and best of fortunes!

Let your heart be not faint
Now the journey’s begun;
There is One who still beckons to you.
So look upward in joy
And take hold of his hand;
He will lead you to heights that are new--
