12 December 2011
uuuuuummmmmm, im trying to think of things that happened this past week.....
Chat is awesome! we've had 2 lessons with her so far. we'll have 2 more this week and then she wants to be baptized on christmas eve! so thats pretty cool!
I'm seriously struggling to think of what we did this week...
I asked elder matekel what we did, he said, "stuff". he is always so helpful!
We had stake conference this sunday, that was pretty cool. everyone that spoke, spoke about joy.
I recently started a study of the gospels. thats been pretty cool! im just going through them chronologically, so lots of flipping pages and looking at footnotes and stuff, but its been cool comparing the different accounts of Christs life.
(i started doing this study because I made it to Alma in the BoM and didnt want to keep going cause Alma is so dang long lol)
everyone should check out these videos http://lds.org/bible-videos?lang=eng They are Awesome!
I'm not really looking forward to christmas without all of you. It wont be full of it's usual excitement. but im sure we'll have a good time here! we've got a couple little christmas parties coming up this week that should help us get the Christmas cheer :) and everyone is a little nicer to us now that its almost Christmas, so thats always good as well.
idk what else to write y'all :/
I love you :) and all of you are always in my prayers!
Here's a scripture to keep in mind:
"I will also ease the burdens which are put upon your shoulders, that even you cannot feel them upon your backs, ...and this will I do that ye may stand as witnesses for me hereafter, and that ye may know of a surety that I, the Lord God, do visit my people in their afflictions."
Sorry this email was lame. i'll try to do better next week. i'll send some pictures to make up for it.

oh, okay, heres a story! we didnt have a car for a couple days, and i didnt have a bike helmet one morning, so we had to walk. not a big deal, except that we needed to go somewhere that was 8 miles away. so here's what we did: we went on a "faith walk" (i coined the term :) ). we said a prayer and said "we're gonna start walkin. if we could please get a ride that'd be awesome! if not, we're gonna be walkin for a long time. hopefully we'll meet someone along the way." and we set off! we walked for about 40 mins and then someone picked us up :) the end.
