November letters

November 22, 2010
Well today while playing football I colided with one of the other elders I live with and we whacked heads. I am perfectly ok but he needs stitches.  I feel bad, we were on the same team.

We recently got a new Branch President  and he is amazing!!! He moved over from the
spanish ward. He is a wonderful man.  We went from having 25 people at chuch to 52!!!!!! We doubled. We had three investigators there as well. It was A really really good week. We were able to find 5 new people to teach who all seem really interested. and I don't know if you remember we were teaching a girl name Chi-Chi and it really didn't progress. However, we recently started teaching her again and she has a baptismal date for December 12! She has completly changed since we taught her last. She is willing to do anything to get baptized its amazing!

We had a member referral from another ward and she turned out to be golden! Her name is Florence and she is from Gahna. We had our new Branch President with us when we taught her, it was a really spiritual lesson.  We are preparing to go to the temple on the first of December.  I was notified of my release date: August 17, 2011.  Can't believe it.

Things Are Great here!!!! Yesterday we Had Stake conference and Elder D. Todd Christofferson was there, he gave an amazing talk.  Elder Williams and I are working really hard and its stressful because we arent seeing a lot of success. We are being obedient and doing all that is asked of us. Its funny, the harder you work the harder it seems the work is,  Today we started practice for our Christmas fireside, all the missionaries are singing. It is going to be an wonderful experience.

Things have been really good here, we are working really hard. Elder williams and I have been seeing alot of success. We found 5 really amazing new investigators this week. The last two nights we had to be in early so we had some fun.  We quoted movies and decorated for Christmas, it was a fun two nights even though we were couped up in the house. We had a really good fast and testimony meeting yesterday. The spirit was really strong. I can't believe it is already November, time is flying buy so fast!! Before you know it it will be Christmas!  It is amazing to feel the change the atonement has in your life as you fully realize how to use it. There is such a powerful presence felt. It is amazing to feel the love of your Savior when you fully realize the true power of the sacrifice He made.
