Merry Christmas

I hope you all had a great Christmas!

This year's Christmas was pretty fun! On Sunday our ward had a cute
sacrament meeting and we had a lot of musical numbers and good talks.
When the meeting got out one of our members dressed up like santa
clause and gave candy to all the kids.( and missionaries).

The best part was talking on skype with my awesome family!

We also had a really good dinner with a sweet family in the ward and
then we sang carols around their piano.

L. is doing really well. She told her pastor in another church that
she is going to keep reading the Book of Mormon and keep meeting with
us even though he doesn't want her to.

C. is reading the Book of Mormon and really liking it. We are so
excited for her and to see her progress.

This week at the visitors center I got to see the family from
Guatamala, back from my time in Mount Pleasant, it was so good to see

Thanks for everything, have a good new years!

Feliz navidad


Hola. Hope everyone has had a good week. Things are really great here,
this last week we had some shifts in the visitors center. We met a lot
of really cool people, and we also met some families that wanted us to
send missionaries to their house.

Our investigator L. came to the branch on Sunday. He really enjoyed it
and we are hoping that he will come back.

We also had the branch Christmas party and all of the members brought
food from their home countries. It was really good and we had a lot of
our investigators come as well.

On Saturday the roads were too icy to drive so we spent a lot of time
tracting near our apartment.  We found some really cool new families
that said we could come back and teach them more.

We found a new investigator C. this week. She used to meet with
missionaries in El Salvador and she was really excited that we found
her. We had two good lessons with her this week and she said we could
come back next week,

Thanks for everything have a great Christmas!!

Hey Everyone!

We had a great week!

First off our investigator A. is doing pretty well. She has been
reading the Book of Mormon for a couple weeks now and she really likes
it, but she has a few concerns about switching religions but we are
still going to work with her.

We found L. a new investigator this week and she is great. We taught
her twice in one week and she really likes learning and really liked
the story of the restoration. She told us she wants to come to church
with us and we are excited to see her progress.

We met with a part-member family as well. The mom is less active and
her son is not a member. We taught them and the son liked everything
and learned really quickly. The hard part is we can't get the mom to
come to church, so it has been slow with them.

This week I also translated sacrament meeting into English for the
people in our ward who don't speak Spanish.

Festival of lights has been pretty good, it has started to get really
busy but we have had some fun families come in and I have gotten to
see lots of people from my old areas.

Thanks for everything! And be sure to check out for the new
Christmas video!

Thanks for everything and have a great week!

Hi everyone!!! We've had a great week!

On Tuesday we had Ambassador Night at the temple vistor center, and
we spent the night getting things set up and helping during the
event. Elder Stevenson came and turned on the lights.

This week we also worked two shifts in the visitor center where we
helped with the festival of lights. It was really cool and we got to
meet a lot of people.

A. is doing really well, she is really excited for her new calling and
we are getting through a lot of the new member lessons.

This week we went to a members house and we had a soup with a few
whole fish in it, and it was really spicy. It was definitely an
