HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh man was it good to hear all your voices! It was a fun phone call. I'm so glad it was great Christmas for all of you! It really is such a great time of year. I do know an Elder Martin!! He was in my first zone and i just saw him at the Christmas Devotional! Ha ha that is awesome. He is a great elder!!
So this week was great! It was pretty busy. With Christmas and everything we were running around everywhere. On sunday we started out at church, then to the Hess' for lunch, then to the Bains to call, then to a white elephant gift party at the Benson's, then to the Weavers, then to the Ridge's, THEN to Carson Loder's. Ha ha. It was great. Oh, Speaking of Carson, this is for her:
Anyway, it was an AWESOME Christmas!
As i told you all on the phone, i did do some caroling as tracting. We went to a dinner appointment and they weren't home, we knew we were there for a reason and needed to do something. SO we went tracting with our ukulele! We knocked on doors and if they didn't answer we started singing with our just excellent angel-like voices. It didn't work haa but it was a lot of fun. We did find 4 people to come back and teach though! One of which is that Windy lady i told you all about. I love how the Lord but us in the right places at the right time. He does His work His way, we just have to listen to the promptings so we can accomplish the things He asks.
Last week i messed up my right shoulder and it was hurting so bad i couldn't use my arm! Which made a lot of things pretty difficult to do. I was pretty worried i would have to go see someone about it, but on Sunday during sacrament i prayed that it would heal so i could actually do things and serve. By the end of the meeting i had full use of my arm! I love when things like that happen.
This week is going to be so great. We have a lot going on in preparing for the upcoming year! We as a zone are doing a "standard week" next week. We are all going to put in the extra effort to hit the standard of excellence, meaning 20+ lessons, 100% morning schedule, and 3+ new investigators. We are PUMPED! I know we can do it. I will let you all know how it goes!
Well, i best be off. Sorry it's a short letter, i don't know what else to say really since i just talked to you all on Sunday ha ha. But that's alright. I love you all so much! Thank you everyone for the love and support you give me! You are all such great blessings in my life. Thank you for everything!!! Have a great week!! Talk to you in 2012!!!!!!!!!
