Arrived in St. George Utah

Hello Everyone!!! I have arrived here in St. George safely!  It’s a wonderful looking place.  I’m super excited to be here and serve the Lord, the members, the non-members and everyone!  The Mission President is really nice and I know I’ll love serving here for the next two years.

Mission Training Center – week 2

The Last Supper with TJ (for a while)
