I am very impressed! My companion kept calling me scrooge when I wouldn't
let us listen to Christmas music until today, but I am now enjoying the
Christmas music! The tree looks really nice!! Very different than previous
years, but I guess that will have to be part of the trade when all of us are
out of the house!
I have not heard anything about our travel plans, but yes that is what I
handed in was that I will fly into Las Vegas. The previous group of
missionaries sounded like they didn't get their plans until a few days before. President
just said to plan on being home around 7:00pm on January 1st.
Yeah dad we use the metric system. If I remember correctly, -16 Fahrenheit
is pretty cold!!! It has still been pretty warm here, around -2 or -3 today.
The talks and Sunday school lesson sound like they went well. We had the
primary program this week which was a lot of fun. It was cool to see the
parents of part member families there to support their children. Sometimes I
think the best way to their hearts is through their children so it's cool that
all over the world primary put on a program teaching the most plain and
precious parts of the gospel. I love the primary songs, they are so
Sounds like you all had a great thanksgiving! I learned that they now make
meatballs out of fish. That makes this the 6th time we have had fish this
month. I think that is a record :) it's like a fish stick, in a ball, but
different. I would stick with mashed potatoes and turkey. They don't celebrate
thanksgiving here, but we did have a dinner appointment that night so we called
it our thanksgiving. I love the members. They have such good hearts.
Can’t believe its December already. This last month has gone by fast. Exciting
to hear that Brian and Annie got moved. Hopefully his first day at work goes
This week I noticed a lot about pondering. The ability to ponder is a gift,
and a gift we should take advantage of. Many great prophets have gained greater
knowledge and guidance while they were pondering. I’ve been reading in Helaman
and the Lord guided Nephi as he was pondering Hel 10:4. I think it would do us
good to take time to ponder the things we study every day! and then share them!
Share your testimony of the things you do know. Hel 7:29. They are facts. Plain
and simple. God lives. Jesus Christ is our Savior. Without Him we would have no
hope. Through Him we can have peace and joy and live with our families forever.
His church has been restored. I love you all!
Have a nice Monday back at school and work!!
