Hey everybody!! Sorry I haven't emailed in like 2 weeks I'm not sure how that happened but it's all good! Here we are
Alright so December was pretty good. The holidays made me a little homesick but it's cold here now so it feels more like home! Today the high is 38 and everyone is freaking out, we had a "cold weather notice" taped to our door haha it's funny.
We have been doing a lot of finding recently because we have nobody to teach. And we have 2 people now who we are pretty confident about but they didn't come to church so that blows.
We taught 3rd hour for this 5th Sunday which was kind of nerve racking but it went well. Oh man we went to Kelly's Country Cooking after district meeting and my companion ate a whole 16 oz hamburger and fries. And i ate the biggest baked potato youve ever seen. It was ridiculously good. And then the best part is when the waitress brought us the bill someone had paid for it and said "God bless you Elders." People are the best. :)
Thank you for all of the Christmas presents and the letters and stuff! I have a ton of candy to eat and I'm gonna get nice and fat.
I've got a new scripture I really like for a couple reasons but it's in 2 Nephi 33:3 "But I, Nephi, have written what I have written, and I esteem it as of great worth, and especially unto my people. For I pray continually for them by day, and mine eyes water my pillow by night, because of them; and I cry unto my God in faith, and I know that he will hear my cry"
That hit me for a couple reasons, the first is that Nephi had a pillow, I mean they were treking through the desert and they have to carry everything they own with them and he brought a pillow. Me and Nephi would get along.
And then the more important part that hit me was he cared so much about his lost brethren that he literally cried himself to sleep every night praying for them. So I ask you all if you care enough for those around us who have fallen away, do you love them so much that you are praying for them every night?
I love you all and am excited for 2018 it's going to be a good year!
