You can start counting down......now. We will hopefully be skypeing and calling next Sunday at about 3ish my time. Honestly, I'm looking forward to talking to y'all for a good chunk of time.
Yes, I do feel very adored by all of the stuff that I am getting. It is a lot of stuff and thank you so much for sending me stuff. It is nice to feel the family love.
We have been busy this week trying to see people before the work dies down for the holidays. The Natividads are doing well. Jesus hurt his back last week so he has been in and out of the doctor's office this past week. But he is good. He should be getting the priesthood pretty soon. Yesterday at church was awesome. Some inactive families came, and that was great. Yeah we have been seeing one of the families that came last week out of the blue. They are the Bogorquez's and they are awesome. We taught them 3 times last week and they came again yesterday to church. They have told us that they know this gospel is true, and that they want to learn more. It is very exciting to see a family that are doing the things that they need to do to progress. RADICAL!
We went to the Liberty Jail yesterday for a fireside. It is crazy how close all of that Church history is from here.
Yeah we have our regular P-day next Monday, but the libraries are closed, so we can't email. Rats.
It may snow here this week, so we may have an icy Christmas. You lucky dogs will be in California having a hyphy Christmas. You probably don't get that reference. Don't worry about it. It's Bay Area slang.
Okey dokey. It. Is. Time.
1. As a whole the church still does new member lessons. Our ward is having a lot of unity problems so the members here don't do them. It is tough. No body Spanish-wise does home teaching or visiting teaching. There is a lot of pride and gossip. It is bad for the ward. The bishop is trying to focus the ward on unity this upcoming year, so maybe that will help them.
2. We did a service project called the Red-Bag project. There are like 500 bags of gifts for kids in the area. We took them out of a semi, sorted them, and then different agencies came and picked them up to distribute. It was cool. We got to help little kids have Christmas.
3. I'm not sure what kind of dog I will get. Maybe a big dog, maybe a little dog. Maybe a white dog, maybe a black dog. Who really knows.
Mom:Dad told me about the vegetarian thing. That's cool,I guess,if you are in to that sort of thing.
Dad: Go Niners!
Have a good week, travel safely, and get ready for my most anticipated call of my life (so far).
