First Transfer from Morristown to Knoxville

Jared was transferred on June 18th. He is officially trained. I can't believe it has been over 3 months since he left.

Here is an excerpt from his letter:

"I'm in grove park south! it's in Knoxville and my new companion is E Bills, he's pretty cool. I also got to go to my first baptism this last saturday!! Her name is Emily and she was already scheduled to be baptized when I got transferred in. President Irion and an area 70, Elder Hymus both came to the baptism so it was really cool."

 E Bills, Emily, and E Petersen

June 6th 2014

Here is our latest picture from E Petersen (far left)
I believe this is Zone Conference
His trainer E Houghton is in the middle with the dark hair. 

He is enjoying his mission. He is so happy it makes me happy. He is working with some members and is teaching an investigator. He encourages us to be involved with the missionaries in our area and to feed them often :)  Jared encourages everyone to read the scriptures and gain a testimony for themselves of the truthfulness of the gospel.

E Houghton thought it would be great for Jared to have the full southern experience and attend a Baptist church. They were not well received. The Pastor came up to them and told them that their church worships Jesus and not Joseph Smith, he then walked away before they could say anything. Jared was not impressed.
