December 7, 2009

Feliz Navidad!

It’s been a full week since my last email, but it doesn't feel like it. I am starting to get to know things around our area. The members are really good to us and the ward functions well. We just got a new ward mission leader actually. The old one moved out on my first Saturday here, but the new one just got released from the stake presidency so he should be great.

Investigator wise, we are doing pretty well. When I first got here we had two preparing for baptism, but since then we found out Shantal is probably moving back to Leeds on Tuesday and Paola hasn't been to church since I came. Paola could still be baptized this Sunday, but it might be the next to give her another opportunity to attend. (The ward here has asked us to have baptisms on Sundays, after church. I'm not sure how long that will last because that means they have to wait until the next Sunday to be confirmed in a sacrament meeting.) Although they are struggling a bit we have seen some miracles with new families and other investigators. We have met two separate South African mothers that have a couple kids each. One of them has a son that is actually best friends with our bishop's son. We are excited for both families and for a guy named Courtney. He is actually Shantal's brother-in-law and just came to church for the first time. When any of them progress a little more I'll fill you in on what’s happening.

I have to get off the computer for a while, but I might be able to get back on later. I love you!

Sorry we have had a good, but busy P Day. I thought I would be able to get back on for longer, but we only got to just pop by the library. I met Elder Bang’s mother  this week. She came to bring him his Christmas package. She works for Scandinavian Airlines and could bring it over as luggage cheaper than sending it. Elder Greeley and I were on exchange when it happened so we were able to pick it up for him without him seeing his mum. She is really cool and it was cool to work with Elder Greeley for a whole day. He is a good Missionary. Oh and we (the four of us) have sang twice in the past week for different occasions. Once at Zone Conference for our Christmas Program and once at a baptism. I feel the spirit really strongly when I sing so I really enjoyed it.

I still love you!
