As for the mission this week was pretty good!  We were busy with appointments and different service things so it was a fast week.  We went on exchanges with the zone leaders on Thursday/Friday and were able to see most of our progressing investigators so that was good. On Friday we did service for one of our investigators by laying a bunch of cement.  We actually did a pretty good job, we were pleasantly surprised.  The work here is progressing but its been a while before the missionaries here did much member work so I'm really trying to focus on that.   Just like President Hinckley said there a better way to do missionary work than tracting! =)   I hate tracting so I use that statement a lot.   Well I love you and miss you all!

December 3, 2012

It was a pretty good week! Not too many lessons and still have yet to meet some of our investigators but we did have some fun!  BYU played ISU on Saturday and we got tickets to the game! Ha it was a blast!  Ha the APs ended up being there as well.  They were embarrassed because they didn't have an investigator there and we did.  But that's the day they took their P-day which most the time they don't get, so I let it slide! ;)   Then of coarse the Christmas devotional was last night and that was great!   It's always good to hear some inspiring words from the first presidency!  What a wonderful country we live in to be able to celebrate and worship freely! What a wonderful time of year this is! The time that we have to reflect on the Savior and all that he did for us!   The Spirit of giving is all around us so let it sweep you away and feel the wonderful joy that comes from serving and giving to others!  What better gift can we give than the knowledge of eternal families and the peace that comes from the restored gospel! Give your friends the best gift possible by sharing with them the same joy that you feel!
