Hello family. Happy Fathers Day Rick...I mean Dad!! And happy fathers day to every other dad or future dad who reads this. Merry Day of Fathers!!! 
This week has been very busy! As of right now, we have 7 people set for baptism and all of them are pretty excited. We have a baptism coming up this weekend. Julian is finally making the jump to be baptized and follow the savior. I am so proud of him and how far he has come. We are now actually teaching one if his neighbors, her name is Jackie. She saw us going over there all the time and wanted to know what we were all about. We are now teaching her and she is going to be baptized on the 9th. She is super excited and has already come to church twice. She is such a nice lady. She has 3 young kids and the father is in jail. So she wants to be involved with the church so that by the time her husband gets out of jail he can get involved and be on the right track immediately. She wants to have a good thing in her life for her and her kids. She is just a great lady. 
Things have just been going so good. The Lord has really been blessing us with success in this part of the vineyard. 
We got to witness a drug raid the other day. We were contacting in this trailer park and then out of no where these cops show up in like their cars and their vans with all their guns and dogs and stuff. We booked it out of their but stayed close enough so we could watch. It was CRAZY. haha.
Other than that, its kind of like another day at the office. We teach people a lot. We bring them closer to Christ. That's what I love about this, that no two days will EVER be the same. You will always encounter different people and different situations. All unique to the circumstance. 
Well family, I love you all. But its time for me to go whoop on some missionaries in a game of basketball. 
Love, Elder Pierce

p.s. As this wonderful day of celebrating fathers has passed. I hope we all didn't forget the one Father who deserves the most praise and appreciation. Our wonderful Father in Heaven. May you always remember him and give him thanks for the things he has done for you.
