December 14, 2016

Well this week was a good week! It seemed to have gone pretty slow,
though, it was pretty cold here with a lot of wind haha and today we
got at least 5 or 6 inches! Which is fun, but driving is pretty crazy
here already so throwing snow in that mix makes it war.

So there is a family that we work with that has just come back to
activity, they are pretty new to the church even though they were
baptized years ago. They stopped going pretty quick after they were
baptized but now they want to come back, and they have a kid named
P--that we teach because she isn't baptized. It's been way fun
teaching a kid haha--she's 9 years old and is really smart, but I'm so
used to teaching older people that it's easy to forget how to teach
simply! So, it's been good for me. She loses focus pretty quick so
Eder Holt and I usually have to use her stuffed animals during the
lesson to keep her focused, or else we act out things. It's been
pretty funny during some lessons hahaha but we set a baptismal date
with her for January 7th. We have talked with the bishop to help
the Dad be able to baptize her-- it's still in the works but she will
be baptized either way and we are really excited. 

They are a funny family haha--it's fun to see people change as they 
grow closer to the
gospel, and they definitely have. The dad is reading the scriptures a
lot more, and P-- is now as well, the kids version of the Book of
Mormon. They try really hard to understand everything--it's fun
to see. So that was something that happened this week. We also met
with A-- and she's not doing very well, she just isn't keeping
commitments and it's been frustrating because she will come to all the
ward activities but not church.  It''s ok, she will come eventually, but
it has been slow progress.

So this week we still ran around like chickens with our heads cut off
trying to get this dang booth set up for the Light the World
initiative and we finally got permission from the city so we will be
doing it this weekend and next. It will be pretty cool, we have a lot
of stuff planned so next Monday I'll have pictures hopefully. Also we
are gift wrapping at Bass Pro Shops this week, too, and that will be
interesting because I am the absolute worst at wrapping (I know the
family can testify). But I'll figure it out as I go or else I'll be an
amazing supervisor and just try to talk to people too. It will be a
lot of fun.

Love you fam! Have a good week! It's finally looking like Christmas--
hopefully there is snow in Utah. I'll see you in a couple weeks!
