We don't know if it's a mistake or not, but the first leg of Elder Harrison Adams' return flight home is listed as First Class. What's most likely is it's a small plane and he's in "A Class".
Family and Friends,
Hello Y'all! There's lots to write about this week! Lots of good and bad things happened.
To start off we had to drop one of our investigators which was really hard, but necessary as well. Sometimes it's a hard and scary thing to do, but if we follow the Spirit's direction it will all work out. God has a play for each and every one of us. A few days later we also had to drive some Elders to the airport and say goodbye to them. That was also a little hard and sad.
However, even though this week had some hard things, it was chalked full of amazing things as well! We had lots of success finding new investigators and have found some really good potential in several of them.
One of the biggest highlights of the week however happened on Saturday. A while back Elder Cook had planned to visit our mission but due to an ice-storm he wasn't able to come. So he rescheduled and came back this past Saturday! We met in Portsmouth Virginia which was about a three hour drive from Greenville. Our mission president wanted us to drive up over night so we did that and stayed with some other Spanish Elders. Then Saturday morning we had a meeting, as a whole mission, with Elder Cook. It was so good and so amazing! We talked mostly about Easter and developing Christlike attributes. It was very inspiring and instructive. The Spirit that Elder Cook brought with him as well was incredible.
After the conference, we had some lunch and then had to drive all the way down to Kinston (4 hours away) for stake conference. We were running a little late but somehow made it just on time. We sang in the choir, and then got to hear from Elder Keetch and President Walker. It was really good. They talked about strengthening your marriage which of course doesn't apply to me right now, but I have some good ideas for the future now!
The next day, Sunday, we had the second session of stake conference in New Bern. About an hour and a half away from Greenville. Elder Keetch spoke to us again about the importance of service. He talked about a man that wanted to double his spirituality. He shared his plan with Elder Keetch, saying he was going to double the times he went to the temple, double his scripture study, and even go to church twice on Sunday. His hope was to double his spirituality by doubling those aspects of his worship. However, Elder Keetch told him what he thought would be the best way to double his spirituality. He said, "Instead of the time you would take to do all of those extra things, even though those are fantastic, use that time instead to perform simple acts of service." He went on to explain that of course we need the basic building blocks of scripture reading, church attendance, and temple worship. However, it's also important to remember to give service to others. That's my favorite thing about being a missionary. We have so many opportunities to serve. And I know that as we serve not only will we increase our spirituality, but we will draw closer to God and be the type of people that he would want us to be.
Well after all of those amazing events, we had one more! Since stakes out here are pretty large, Morehead City is included in our stake. So at stake conference I was able to see lots of the families from Morehead City. In specific, the Willis and Clifton family! After conference, people always bring food and have a picnic outside, and they invited us to eat with them. It sure made me miss them and Morehead City!
Alright, that's about all for this week! Y'all take care!

Family and Friends,
Hello Y'all! This week was fantastic. It was super busy, but that made it go by super fast. We were out of our area a few days for meetings and exchanges so we weren't able to work in our area as much as we would have liked, but we still got lots of good things done!
We were able to teach a few new people. Last night we met a man named Nacho, and we had a really good lesson with him. It's been interesting to see how effective it is to study and become a Preach My Gospel missionary. The more I've focused my efforts on following the council in that inspired book, we've had more success and all around people tend to listen more! I also love the fact that we have a companion to back up and expound on what we said.
I've thought a lot about President Utchdorf's talk from last general conference. We, to some degree, are all Amuleks. We have the ability and responsibility to sustain and uphold our church leaders, and to also give them advice and add to their testimony. I know that we need both Almas and Amuleks in this church. And, in many ways, we are all both!
Zone meeting this week went really good. We focused on how we can commit ourselves, so we can better commit others. Personal conversion comes first, and personal obligations. But after we found ourselves on the doctrine of Christ and on His atonement, then we have the great responsibility and privilege to help others see and accept this wonderful Gospel!
Well, I sure love Y'all! Keep up the good work, and remember, the church is true!

Family and Friends,
This week was fantastic because we had General Conference! General Conference is literally the best thing as a missionary (and as a normal member as well!). I love the chance we get every six months to hear from our church leaders. I love and sustain them. I'm glad that we live in a living, growing church! I'm grateful for continued guidance and revelation from church leaders. I know that this church is guided by a latter day profet.
I especially enjoyed the talk given by President Uchdorf in the priesthood session. "The most important calling in the church, is the one you currently have." I just find that so insightful! Wether we're a missionary, a bishop, a primary teacher, or a greeter. Our calling is the most important one to the church. And it is so important to our Heavenly Father. I know that as we strive to fulfill and magnify our callings that we will feel a special joy knowing that we are serving our God!
This week I became companions with Elder Mickelson for the third time. It's been really neat getting to talk to him, since we were companions in the MTC. Later we were companions at the beginning of our respective missions. It's been a little bit of time since then, so we've been able to talk about the different experiences and cool things we've had happen on our missions!
We're also getting lots of hard work done, which is always the best cure if you're feeling a little down! Things here in Greenville are looking good! I'm grateful for the time I have to be a missionary.
I love Y'all so much! Have a fantastic week!
