From Danny E-Mail on 11-28-11

Whats up! So Sorry i have been slacking on my blog, I'm not even sure people read this but just in case here is whats up with the Lords mission I'm serving in Oregon!

So I have been transferd to Grants Pass oregon I have been here for about one transfer so 6 weeks.  I'm loving every miniute of it!  My current comp I have had here Elder Lund is leaving to salem, and now I'm training again Elder Burg, haven't met him yet. I'm looking forward to it!

So for Thanksgiving we had a turkey bowl and of course I pulled something (ha ha), then we had 2 turkey dinners and we had the opprotunity to watch 17 miracles it was amazing! I think I cried during the whole thing.

We are finally teaching people the restored gospel and I love it! We have one with a baptism date, her name is Amanda she is going to come unto Christ Dec 17.  Pray for her she has a long way to go. Thank you so much I love you all.

Update from Danny August 22nd

Hey everyone this past week or so have been, well bitter sweet last Saturday we saw L. Tom Perry of the 12, what a blessing to be in the same room, to shake the hand of an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ. He gave a wonderful talk addressing the needs to more fully exercise our priesthood ability and us that with our investigators. Also to use the Book of Mormon in true conversion to have your investigators emerged in the Book of Mormon so we are now using that! At the end he gave his Apostolic witness to us of the Living Lord, he said" I have seen revelation being given to our prophet" Wow...what a statement, it just further more solidifies my testimony in this church

That was the sweet part of the past week, the bitter part is we had a baptism this Saturday and the guy never showed up, matter a fact no one knows where he is at so I hope and pray for him always. Thank you for all the support you guys give me I love you all! take care!

From Danny 8-1-11

Hey everyone! So this week was pretty good, we were struggling for awhile to find someone to teach, we had 2 baptisms, David and Jorey they were a part member family! They are two ten year old kids who remind me a lot of my little brother Sam! I loved teaching them! We are teaching more, not as much as i would want to, but that is where I need to work harder at finding people! For those back home please talk to your friends about the Church and invite them to act! Help the missionary cause! I love this work with all my heart! I love you all!

July 25 2011

Hey everyone! I Hope all is well back home!

Things are going really good out here we had a baptism and about 2 weeks ago maybe 3 ha and I finally remembered to bring my camera so hopefully I can send that with this update. The work out here is going well, our new mission president has been on fire lately and I'm excited to use some of the new stuff that we are learning! I've recently been called to serve as a District Leader, I'm excited to become an example to those who I serve and also I'm happy that the mission president trusts me enough with this calling. We are teaching a lot, we are finding more so hopefully through diligence we will get more to teach! We are now on full bike which makes it difficult because our area is huge but we will still baptize! Thank you all for everything you do! Love you all!

From Danny 6-6-2011

Hey everyone! I hope everything is going good back home! So this week has been really fun and good, a lot of hard work, the past 2 weeks we tracted 37 hours and its finally paying off, the ward is seeing how hard we are working for them and finally trust us, cause in the past year i would guess they have had...not so good missionaries...yesterday, Sunday we got 3 new referrals, we taught one last night. Her name is Hannah (good name eh) she is dating a less active/trying to get active and go on a mission and she wants to know more about it so we taught her last night and it was a spiritual packed lesson, the holy ghost testified to her what we were teaching was true, so much even if she tried she could not deny it. She accepted to get baptized the 25 of June. We meet with 2 other solid gators this week, Mel, who bore his testimony last week..ya solid and K.J whose only concern is she doesn't want to stop wearing spaghetti Straps and Short Shorts...ya I know right! So she will be getting dunked, all of which came to church last week!

So that’s that I love you all and hope you have a great week!

From Danny via e-mail on 5-23-11

Hey Everyone so things are crazy here in the OEM! So things were going so well for me in Cottage Grove, we had 3 with a date and we were finding so many people to teach, I wanted that area to have at least 10 investigators in our pool, so we were doing some major work! Then I got a call from president MacDonald asking me to pack my bags to be emergency transferred to Salem because a missionary up here got sent home. I'm trying to learn the area and right now I'm in Salem in a threesome with Elder Wells who broke his leg 3 days ago, and Elder Groskits who is a balla! So ya so far I love it I will have more for you all next week! LOVE YOU GUYS!

From Danny on 5/9/11

This is an e-mail from Danny...

Hello Everyone! I hope it stops snowing in Idaho, just an FYI, the weather here is GREAT!

So this past week as been a good one! I got two new comps we are in a Tri some because our apartment is the biggest in the mission! Elder Lourneco and Elder Rachal, I knew Elder Lourneco from my old area, he is a way sweet guy! Both of my comps are 5'8 or shorter so you can imagine what people think when we knock on doors (one of these elders aren't like the other) ha that’s what I’m thinkin anyways. We had a baptism on Saturday, Jason Cole, he is a 10 year old boy who's dad is less active but wants to get back into the church. I can't think of a better way to do so that having your son being baptized by the proper priesthood authority. Jason is a great kid with a strong testimony! So that’s it for this week, I will try to make my next one more detailed for you all...oh wait the best think was yesterday I got to call home! and Skype home! It was so great seeing my Family!! I love you all!

Danny Brian hits Eugene

Hey everybody, we are so proud of Danny.  He's gone back out to Eugene and is currently serving in an area called Cottage Grove.  Here is a link to the area:

We asked Danny to send us some information to get this thing started so you will see that in the next post.  We just want Danny to know how much we love him, admire him, and know that he's doing the right thing and that he is a great young man.
