Note: Three missionaries in red, white and blue, spelling USA with their hands. Photo caption is "Muricaaaa!" Took me a minute, but I finally got it. It's a July 4th picture, "Murica" being a patriotic contraction of "America." There is no explanation for the face Rob is making in the picture. Here are his notes from the field: "Randy [who had planned on being baptized yesterday] is complicated. Basically he has a girlfriend in Guyana right now that will be moving back in 10 weeks. Elder Wilson and I decided we could figure out the plans for that after baptism, but our zone leader here gave him the interview and he basically foretold future sin. Weird, right? But it's okay. We are still working with Randy and hope he will be ready for baptism soon. Nothing too exciting here. I was on the news for Agriculture day. haha. It was kinda cool. We have an investigator who is steadily reading the Book of Mormon, which is exciting cuz he seems really interested in it. But other than that nothing really exciting has gone on. Hopefully we'll work out this whole Randy situation soon though!" Rob's nephew Riley was just ordained a deacon, so reacting to that news he wrote, "That's crazy that Riley is already that old! Time flies. Let's hope these 2 years pick up as well. haha. Just kidding. I love it out here but there are times when I miss the simple things in life.:P HOW'S BAXTER!?"
This is a picture of Rob with branch members at Agriculture Day. No details, and the photo is courtesy of Ziggy, a branch member.
