December 28,2015


Sooooo throwback to when WE TALKED IN REAL LYFE THE OTHER DAY. It seems so surreal. You all looked great. Took me about 30 minutes to realize that i was still on a mission haha. That was the highlight of the week for sure. Besides that...Christmas day we had a pretty awesome christmas dinner actually. All of us missionaries decided we were going to get together and have everyone bring a side. Sooo we brought sandwhich ham and made sweet potatoes (looked a little bit different than the marshmallowed ones you guys are probably used to) andthen other people brought other stuff, including rolls, pumpkin cheesecake, stuffing, costco chicken, pizza, fried chicken you name it. haha i ate well that night. Christmas day we were pretty much doing the same stuff that we normally do butt we got to open up packages in the morning from awesome family and friends! Then at night we went around caroling to the people we had been doing the 12 days of Christmas thing to and delivered a framed picture of Jesus with a little note. It was actually pretty fun. But yeah that was the highlight..I will be getting a new companion this thursday on new years eve so that will be interesting.

haha im glad you liked the D&C 93:24. Hopefully when i get back i can read it to you.

Hopefully all the sickos have a quick recovery..

Hows the chapter coming senor?

Is Donald Trump actually gonna win the candidacy? 

How was the HEB turkey?

thats good you guys got to go to the temple. I cant go when im down here in the big southern city.

Smeag killed it on the ACt! So sweet! you know of course im going to be campaigning for him to come up to BYU and room with me...i did make a lot of great friends living the dorms though.

In personal study this week i really liked Job 29:15 -16 "I was eyes to the blind and feet was I to the lame.I was a father to the poor and the cause which I knew not i searched out." One thing that ive been trying to ask myself a lot recently is whether i really am being "eyes to the blind" and "feet to the lame." There are people all around us just waiting to be lifted up and especially at this Christmas season Ive felt the need to reach out more, whether it be to my companion, district members, ward members or investigators.

Anyways, i love you guys! So good to see your faces after so long! Hope you have a great week and an awesome new year!!
