December 15, 2014

Dear Family,

First off we received our transfer calls Sunday night. Me and Elder Vielstich will both be staying in our area together which we're pretty excited about! Normally transfers are every 6 weeks but because of Christmas we had a 5 week transfer so our next transfer will be 7 weeks and than it will go back to normal. But anyways, we had a great week and saw some great miracles!

I'll start off with talking about our investigator named John Sotelo. He's a 23 year old man and we're teaching him along with his little sister named Nicki. We have only been teaching them for 2 or 3 weeks. Well we had a super awesome lesson with them this week and John committed to be baptized and set a date for for January 17th! We're super excited its crazy how fast the Lord can work sometimes considering the fact that a couple of weeks ago we weren't even teaching him. Fortunately some other missionaries about a 1 or 2 years ago set some seeds and taught him a little bit where he used to live. Its been a huge blessing that we were able to find him and be able to work with him! What the chances that we would randomly run into him?

Another huge miracle is that I got to go to the temple with Elaine! Elaine was my second convert on the mission and now has made it to the temple!! It was so good to see her there and see the progress she's made and how much she's grown in the gospel. It was definitely a highlight of the mission and super special.

We continued to work with Michelle and her family. We talked a lot of about baptism and she liked the idea but didn't want to commit to a date yet. She committed to come to our Christmas program this coming Sunday so thats exciting. We have so many investigator who are much more willing to come to church this coming Sunday since its our christmas service. And Christmas is usually the one time a year people go to church anyways.

I'm looking forward to being able to talk with you guys on Christmas! Love you guys have a great week!
