December 2, 2013

Dear Family and Friends,

I'm glad to hear that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful thanksgiving as well. We ate with a huge family in our ward and there was a lot of people so it was a lot of fun. We had a total of 3 or 4 Thanksgiving dinners including the day of Thanksgiving and the day after so the members here took really good care of us. Since the time I've been on my mission I'm close to gaining 15 pounds already. It doesn't help that I'm in a car area either. 

We got permission from our Mission President for all the missionaries in Paradise to go to a Christmas Musical thats put on by members of the church and its held at the Performing arts center. With 2 showing that day over 1000 people came to see the show from the community and the whole program was focused on Christ. After we got to pass out article of faith cards to everyone. Overall we passed out over 600 article of faith cards and it was a great opportunity to get our name out and to have people see us and realize what we do. We even got a bunch of referrals and potential investigators while we were there. So it was a really successful day!

Our investigator Deanna is really coming along well and still progressing towards her baptism. We had dinner with her and the family thats fellowsipping her this week and a lesson with her. So its been going really well. We had a total of 3 investigators at church on Sunday which was awesome. We had a lesson with the Campbell family we're teaching on Sunday night and helped put their Christmas tree up. There should be pictures on facebook if you want to check them out.

We get transfer calls a week from yesterday so we'll find out if I will be getting transferred. Its pretty abnormal to stay in an area longer than 6 months so I'll probably be getting transferred. The weather here is still pretty nice. We're wearing short sleeve shirts still but a jacket at night. I'm not missing the cold back in Utah. Love you all hope you all have a fantastic week.
