Catching up the past two weeks -
Elder Edgell had his MRI a week ago(13th) and the results are in: A partially torn meniscus and arthritis. How old is he? :-) He will be doing a home exercise program (PT) for next 4 weeks and then see doctor again. That was good news. No surgery.
Tim and his companion have been very busy with their missionary work. Even more so now that they cover two areas, Hermitage and Mt. Juliet.
Still waiting for Jeff to get back from Alabama. He's been down there getting treatment from his doctor for his Leukemia and HIV. They are hoping he will get well enough to be baptized soon.
The week of 6 April they had 9 new investigators! Some approached them and wanted to learn more about the church. That is always a great thing for missionaries. There was one man who was stopped at a light and yelled out to the missionaries for a Book of Mormon card.
Baptisms are set for April 21st and 25th! These are folks Tim and his companion have been teaching for awhile now.
This past week they spent tracting (knocking on doors) which proved to be successful. They were able to meet with a lady who was very receptive.
They also spent time teaching the discussions with their investigators.
This coming Saturday, the 25th of April, is Service Day in Nashville. Elder Edgell and Elder Ragle may go down to Murfeesburow to help with the clean up. This is city that had an F3 tornado go through on Friday before Easter. Tim said all the missionaries in the area have been safe throughout all the storms.
Elder Edgell's words:
"The missionary work here is moving forward. We are super busy. Sundays are long; we are at church 7am - 5pm. It is fun.
Thank you for all your prayers, they are surely needed. I am doing good, working hard, and having fun.
Have faith, be obedient and serve the Lord with all your might, mind and strength :-) "
I echo Tim's gratefulness for your prayers. THANK YOU!!!
Tim would love to hear from you so here's his address again:
