Out 6 Months!!!

Elder Arnoczky has been out on his mission for 6 months!! That's 1/4 of his total mission!! It's a missionary tradition to burn a tie on the 6th month anniversary of being out, so we're eager to hear how that went for Derek! This past week he has been in Weiser, ID filling in for an elder who is sick. He's not sure if he'll be transferred there for good, but for now that's where he's at. Here are a few pictures Elder Arnoczky has sent home.
