4th of July in Howell

So the 4th of July was pretty insane! It’s weird hearing firework explosions without any mountains around. The mountains make them echo and sound really deep. In Michigan it just sounds like you’re in a war-zone! We went down to Thompson Lake where a Member’s family lives and hung out with them and their son’s . . . → Read More: 4th of July in Howell

Erik At Howell Balloon Festival 2012

My Companion from Texas 6/18/2012 Letter

So this week was good all around. The great news is that all of our numbers are back up now that I’m back in Howell 24/7.

Hey family! I hope everyone’s doing well! Congrats again on the Marathon! That’s pretty amazing to win it let alone finish it!

This week ended up turning out great despite the added complications of covering 2 areas. We ended up teaching 12 lessons in each area for a combined total of 24 which was . . . → Read More: The Brighton-Howell MIssions Combine 6/11/2012

6/4/2012 Time to Re-Build Howell

This week was a pretty awesome week for us! We had Zone Conference on Thursday which was a really good spiritual boost that I needed, and also a good reminder for things I need to do better. Plus it’s always fun to hang out with my missionary friends I haven’t seen in awhile!

Memorial Weekend -email from 05-29-2012

Hey Family!

Last week was a low numbers week for us because of all the traveling we had to do. We still had a pretty decent week though despite all the time we lost.

Our best investigator has a baptismal date, but he was gone for the weekend so he wasn’t able to come . . . → Read More: Memorial Weekend -email from 05-29-2012

My Takeover of Howell 5/7/2012



This week was tougher than usual. Last night on a conference call with the Zone Leaders and other District Leaders it sounded like it was tough throughout the whole zone.
