If you don't already know, Elder Jackson Durrett is serving a full time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He is currently serving in the Torreon, Mexico Mission, speaking only Spanish; and will be near and around Torreon for the next two years. He is giving his own time, putting school, work and girls :) on hold; and giving of his own money to serve the people, the members and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
What an amazing example Elder Durrett is to us and others, spreading the Gospel in Mexico, and we want to share it with all of you. His only form of communication home is a phone call on Christmas and Mother's Day, and weekly emails. Needless to say, we anxiously await each week to share in his testimony and learn of his experiences on the mission, the good, the bad, and the funny!
We, his siblings, nieces, nephews and parents will all take turns in sharing our thoughts, some pictures and of course his "spanglish" e-mails that he sends out every week so that you too can keep in touch with Elder Durrett!
