New Mission President

Hello family. Things are going great hear in the 520 (tucson). Getting really hot that's for sure. 
Well this week has been a sad one. Just to start it off Julian, who was supposed to get baptized on Saturday, unfortunately did not. After finding out some very disturbing details about the matter and also a recent turn of events, his baptism had to be postponed. I will keep you updated more on the subject as the weeks continue on. 
Also something that is very sad, Our Mission President, President Walker and Sister Walker, are having their last P-day as the President. They will be going home tomorrow and then we will have a NEW mission President. Its a very unfortunate thing but time goes on. We all must move on. We can not be called to serve in this sphere for forever. They have been very good to me and have only treated me with respect. I truly do love them and am thankful that I got to serve the Lord with them. I wish them all the luck in the world and hope that whatever they encounter in life the Lord will be with them. 
Our new mission presidents name is President Killpack (I dont know if thats how you spell it) and Sister Killpack (spelling still). They are from Draper Utah and they are going to be here tomorrow. Im nervous and excited at the same time. There are so many things that could change and be different by the next time I email you. OR he could keep everything the same. Who knows. 
Well I love you all so much. I get to go see President Walker one last time before he jumps ship. I love you.

  1. Hi Elder Pierce, This is former BYU Bishop Steven C. Davis, who just arrived here in Tucson in July, 2011 from Central Missouri for the next seven months. My father, Dr. H. Clyde Davis PhD was the LDS Institute Director back between 1954-1966 and we lived at the old Institute (demolished in 1970) in the upstairs apartment. We're planning in investing millions of dollars in honoring my father. He is the one who got the US Government to give 202 acres to the Pascua Yaqui Indian Tribe back in 1964. The same year, the BYU hired him to raise funds for the BYU/LDS Church. His first year (1964-65) he raised over $8 Million from nothing. When he retired in April, 2006 he had raised over $100 Billion for the LDS Church through natural resource donations for tax deductions from all over the world. I was wish him many times. Hope to meet you.

    We live in the Tucson East Stake. The Current Stake Patriarch worked under my father back in the 1960s.

  2. Clyde Davis had us move from San Diego, CA back in 2003 to Randolph County, Missouri and certified what the Prophet Joseph Smith claimed at the Huntsville, Missouri Stake back in 1838 as to the location of the City of Manti in the Book of Alma. We have two homes within 4 miles of that special talk/revelation in Moberly, Missouri (where Brother Hartman Rector Jr. grew up)

    Last year we certified it by discovering a cavern within one mile to the location last year (2010). Our Stake President, Mike Reall, was the LDS Institute Director at the University of Missouri (Columbia) -- last year he was called to be a 70.

    Wonderful things are happening here in Tucson this next year.......with the Pascua Indian Tribe honoring my father.
