May 3, 2011

Hello family.
Sorry about this week and the whole emailing situation. I apologize. And also about last week. That sucked. Though, I am better now. And am somewhat ready to give you a good report on the week.
So this weekend, we have 3 people getting baptized. They are super awesome.
One is a couple with 3 children. Their names are Josh and Heather Starcher. They are really cool people and are really excited about this Saturday. They have been investigating the church for some time now and they are finally ready to make the commitment and follow the Savior more fully in their life.
The other individual being baptized is Arthur Vejar. He is an older gentleman and he is more than ready to accept this commitment in his life. His son and daughter in law are members of the church, recent converts actually. And his son is going to be baptizing him. Arthur is super ready. He reads everything we leave him and more and write notes about it. Good stuff.
As for other things that are happening in this area, no to much to report on. Things are going really well. I have actually been feeling pretty sick lately, unfortunately. Elder Schlichte just got over the flu and so hopefully i wont be getting that anytime soon.
Wow, can you believe that mothers day is this Sunday??? That is going to be crazy. After this call home. I will only have 1 more!!! WHOA! Time is going by way to fast. Yesterday, when we took a trip down to Sahurita for a game of football (which we won) it was so weird to think that i was in that area over a year ago! It actually tripped me out pretty bad!
Oh how fragile time really is. Time can slip by you so easily, one minute you are here and the next minute you will be there. Crazy concept to truly understand.
Well family, i have to run now. We are going to go and teach a lesson over on the U of A! The guy we are teaching is set for baptism on the 28th of this month! So wish us luck!
Love, Elder Pierce

  1. Hi. So I just thought I would comment. You all don't know me and I don't know you. But what we do have in common is that I will be serving in the Tucson mission in a week and a half. Well after the MTC of course. Stumbled on this blog a little while ago and had fun reading the posts. Sounds like elder pierce is doing great out there and so is the mission. Maybe we will meet in a few weeks?
