Elder Bird Gets Special Assignment!

Just when we thought Brock would finish his mission in Winston, Oregon, President Young gave him a "special assignment" to open a new area in Lincoln City, a beautiful coastal town.

Lincoln City coastline, Brocks new and last area.

  This is Brock's first assignment along the coast so it should be an awesome place to complete his mission.  By the way, it was wonderful to talk with  Brock on Mothers Day.  He sounds great, is  enjoying the work and he is excited to come home on June 28th but says he's going to make the best of the time he has left!  Here's his last email (the week before Mothers Day):

There is a clean car competition in the mission and the winners get 50 dollar gift cards, so I need the money and decided if I washed our mission car like I do my own, I would win!:) HAHA!  In the meantime (Tuesday) we had an appointment with Brandon Waddell.  He is doing great!  We read with him and then went to dinner at the Simpson's house!  I love that family! Patrick,  the dad, and I have so much in common, were like the same person! :) They made enchiladas and they were sooo bomb! After dinner we just went and contacted a bunch of people and then read with the Athertons!

Wednesday we had zone conference in Eugene. It was actually my last zone conference so that was wierd. Then they gave the prizes away for the cars! Guess who won the 50 bucks? Yes, me haha! I needed it!

Elder Bird and Elder Ewell won the clean car competition worth $50!

After zone conference we had an awesome lesson with Amber. She is loving church and is stoked for her baptism!

Thursday we did some finding in the morning had some lunch and then just did some more finding and contacting. We had an awesome lesson with Troy,  one that he really needed! He has has been going through a lot with his daughter but he just said that this is what he really needs right now! He is an awesome guy and does a lot of great things. He has come such a long way in his life.  After that we went over to the Athertons and helped them rip down a shed. We have been helping them a lot in their yard!  Never thought I would say this, but I love yard work! :) Haha! We also had a great lesson with Taliti.  He is doing really well.  Their dad is the football coach at the high school, so we talk football quit a bit. They are a really awesome family and I have just really grown close to them! :

Friday we had a lesson with Memory and Steph. Memory is getting ready for her baptism next week, so I am excited for her.

Saturday we had our AP correlation then helped Billy rip out blackberry bushes and get their yard ready for tilling. We met with this woman named Cammie.  She is really cool. We just started teaching her, and she has just been really looking for things to help her out in her life.  She lives alone with her daughter and they are going through some struggles, but we had an awesome lesson with them and they're coming  to church next week.  We had dinner with Billy and Stephanie Atherton, they took us out to the Rodeo Steak House!) Haha!  It was boss!

After that we went and taught the  Lancasters. They are doing great!  Haha,  gotta love that family! So entertaining. They're such goofs!
Sunday we had church and a lesson with Taliti and then we went out and contacted some people and did some finding! We gave Brandon the sacrament.
(Monday-P-day)  I had to find a doctor to give me a tetnus shot because I stepped on a rusty nail about three days ago.

Things are going great!
