On July 23, 2014, Elder Connor Copeland began his two-year missionary service for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church).

was hilarious! Hah.
We also had two baptisms! Alejandra and Eyris. Alejandra has
a sister that is a member and she started bringing her to church and stuff, so
we baptized her. And then Eyris is part of a less active family. It was

e-mails are boring. I just really don't like writing them anymore to be honest. Haha...
