I'm glad every one is starting the new year off with adventures. This last week was super great. The first day of the new year started out great! We found someone to teach! How it happened was there is this program that our ward is doing "called we can do this." It's a list of 50 different things that people can do to get more missionary minded. And one of the things on there is to introduce yourself to someone at church that you don't know. And one of the members in our ward picked that one to do, and she did it. She told us how it went. There was a less active member that came to church that day and that was the person she introduced her self to. She told us who he was. We didn't know him so we went by. When we did he was super nice and was trying to get active again. So we ask if we could come buy and teach the lessons to him and he agreed. But in this home there is this young lady that is not a member and is going to have a baby in 4 months her name is Gia she's Italian. when we went by to give the lesson part of the family sat in on the lesson and so did Gia. the lesson wasn't starting off as well as it could have but by the end the spirit was there and Gia agreed to keep taking the lessons! This all started because a member said hi to someone at church. I know that by small and simple thing are great things brought to pass.(Alma 37:6) This week we have been sharing the restoration with as many people as possible. Members, nonmembers, and less actives. I Know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I also know that he did see God the Father and The Son, the Book of Mormon is another testament of Christ. love you all!
till we wright again,

I also found out that this transfer will be a 7 week transfer. This will be fun! so our friend Rich our new member of the church his daughter was in town for the holydays and we got to meet her she is fun and I just love her we talked to her about what she believe and what see thought about her dad being a member. she is a sophomore in high school. she didn't know what to say really about the hole thing but she has seen the change for the better in her dad. That she liked! it was fun to see then together I think some day she will join but it is going to take some time.

This past week has gone by so fast. I just don't know where the days went. It feels every week goes faster and faster. We had a Christmas zone Conference that was super great. We got to watch the Christmas devotional and watch parts of the living Christ. It was super great and allowed me to have more of appreciation for our Savior. I love this time and season and how many hearts are softened. People tended to have more charity towards one another. Thanks to all the letters and cards I loved them lots. Lyle's fam, Layne's fam, the Davies, sorry it's short. I'll talk to you in two days!!! And I'll be calling you more around 12 your time. Lots lof love!
