The Golden Trough

Hey everyone!

This week was a lot less eventful than last week, so that means I will be able to keep this email a little more concise than last week!

Ever since Jeffrey’s baptism last week we’ve had a bunch of church members rally around him and they worked together to buy him some better clothes! He came walking into church this week with a shirt, tie, sportcoat, and dress pants, as opposed to his usual sweats and tee shirt! He looked so good! I’m really excited too because he said he wants to shave his beard off this week and I can’t wait to him without it!

I’m stressing out a little bit because this week is transfers. Usually you only stay in an area for about 4 to 6 months and I hit 6 months here a few days ago so I’m a little worried that they will transfer me somewhere else. I’ve really come to to love the people of Chester and of Rock Hill and I don’t know if I’m ready to leave just yet. Plus I’m really bad at goodbyes so I’m not looking forward to that either! We should find out tonight where everyone is going to get moved to, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

This week I’ve realized just how important it is to reach out and show love to everyone. Everyone always says “you never know that others are going through, and you could be just what they need” but this week I got to be that person and the effect that my one little act had on that person was so incredible to watch, and as you can see it’s had an impact on me too! I encourage all of you to go and pick one person that you are going to do something nice for this week, even if its as simple as bringing in their trash cans for them, and watch you both grow from that act!

I love yall and hope that yall have an incredible week!

Until next week,
Elder Klingler

Oh and to explain the title, we went to Golden Corral for dinner twice this week (I know, right?) but one of the members that took us there kept on calling it The Golden Trough (I think I spelled that right)! Haha

I hope y’all enjoy the photos of when my companion tied his suit coat around his waist because he ripped his pants, of when our car decided to become Hispanic, of this very judgemental sign, and of all of us missionaries saying goodbye to Megan who just recently joined the church as she heads back to school!
