Jan 2 2017

What is up my friends! First off let's get this very important thing out of the way! Everyone make sure you wish my brother Ammon happy birthday on Saturday the 7th okay!

Alright well for this week the work was pretty slow because the university is still on break and 95% of the students are still gone,  it we make do and so let me share with you the highlights of this week.

Wednesday we had a fun experience. All 6 of us missionaries had a tea appointment at a members home in the afternoon. We got to the area a bit early, so we thought hey let's do a challenge to see who could knock on the most doors before we have our appointment. We all split up, I went with elder Stumpp, and we knocked on the first door, totally got let it! MIRACLE! B.... and S...... a sweet little 85 yr old couple, who also have been married for 60yrs people!!! Cutest little old people ever, anyways they let us in and immediately start showing off their family and all there achievements in life, as English people do. They even got a personal letter from the queen herself congratulating them on their 60yrs of marriage. X amount of time passes by and we are already late to our appointment because we can't get out of this house! Haha but it was a fun experience I think! Even though we "lost" the challenge for doors, I think we actually won for getting in on the first door!

Thursday we got to meet a fun lad named P........., he is a less active in our ward and hasn't been seen in a couple of months. So we finally got to meet him, we got in because we came bearing gifts of soda, candy, and doughnuts. Needless to say we totally got in! Talked to him for a bit and then he kicked us out. To say the least his house is very welcoming to arachnids. 

New Year's Eve, wasn't anything short of exciting, we had to be in early. So we came in at 6:30 and just ordered some food for us and played some silly games the four of us for the night but we were in bed early because it was a normal day for us the next day so we hit the sack and called it a year.

This year though has been an amazing one. Truly a one in a lifetime opportunity. This past year has been full of miracles, full of sorrows, growth spurts, cold days, rainy days, warm days and celestial days. This year has been so amazing, I have seen many amazing things. I've grown very close to my saviour and I am loving this gospel more and more, truly changing my testimony to true conversion. I can't wait to see what this next years brings for me!

Love you all, hope you made some good resolutions this year, the year of the chicken!  (gettin' my Chinese side in there!)
