The Winner Is....

Okay- business first: I don't remember the ACT or SAT stuff at this second, but when I'm done I'll hop on and see.

All is good in the hood. Things are going well here in Missouri. The weather has been bipolar as of late, warm one day and then cold and rainy the next. Other than that, nothing too crazy is going on. 

We should be catching fire and having quite a few baptisms before the end of the year. Yesterday in Sacrament meeting, before people got up to share their testimonies, the 1st counselor was like "We don't need any soap-boxing, or to know how grateful you are for random stuff, please just share what you know to be true" and then sat down. It was freakin' awesome. It seems like people just go up there and say how happy they are and share pointless stories. I hope you didn't share some random story yesterday, otherwise this would be super awkward. Anyways, life is sweet in the streets. 

Transfers are coming up this week, I should almost definitely stay because I have to finish training. Unfortunately, the next transfer date is December 20. Yep, 5 days before Christmas. Crazy.

Elder Javeloza is doing pretty well. Some guy had a seizure in church yesterday, and Elder Javeloza looked like he was going to pass out. Nothing too crazy happened other than that, granted that was pretty crazy. They had to call 911 and have an ambulance come and pick the dude up.

Teaching has been going well. We have some really great investigators right now. Mariana and her brother Jossua should be getting baptized this month. Then we have some other good things going on that should bring us some fruits in December. Our hard work is paying off. I've gotten a lot more bold since being on my mission. I noticed that last week. There were a few instances when I looked back and thought "Dang, I wouldn't have said that 6 months ago." I guess the Lord works in mysterious ways, right? Guess who is sitting next to me right now? Elder Palilla. He is in one of the areas pretty close to mine now. Welp, that is all that I got going on.

1Iron chef Competition: We have a winner...................... Jeffrey Duke LaMay!!  He chose two of my favorite things: sushi, and Reese's. Know your demographic. I think I almost went into a sugar coma over Halloween.
2. We should have a typically freezing winter this year, yes. I think that I will be good with the things that I have. 
3. The sisters all had a pretty good week. i don't know what I did, but something worked. Hopefully we can keep the momentum going into next transfer.

We get to talk to each other next month! 

Okay, fam, have a great week. Love you like the trees love shedding their leaves.
Love, Nick
