  Well! Christmas was a blast! Thanks for all the stuff y'all sent me! How was all of your's? I had about 4 meals that day. I didn't eat as much food, even during rugby season, as I have on my mission, I just never seem to be full! More meals the merrier! How has your week been? What have y'all got planned for the rest of the year?
Here's a nice question: What is your gift to the Savior going to be this coming year? 

My adventures this week consisted of tracting.
  A few days ago, around 430, mind you it gets dark by 445 most days, we were walking up a driveway and I looked up to see a black and white pit bull standing on the door step. My companion, Elder Harper, didn't see the dog, and kept walking. I told Elder Harper, "Hold on! Stop!" He looked at me confused and then turned around and kept walking forward, until he saw the dog. Then he was like, "Oh!" We started backing away, and then the dog started barking and sprinting at us! We kept backing up and it got real close to getting to Elder Harper. So naturally Elder Harper started yelling at it. It slipped on some ice and looked very confused/surprised that someone had said something back to him. We walked off down the street and every time we turned around he was still standing at the end of the driveway just looking confused. We've gotten a pretty good laugh out of that!
Anyways, hope y'all have a good week! 
Love ya and thanks for the Support!

  Merry Christmas everyone! What do y'all have going on? What's your plans? Plenty of gifts and such?
  How's everyone been? Have you had a good week? I really don't have much to say, this week started out kinda rough, but it's flown by. Holy cow. My new companion is Elder Harper, he's pretty cool. We get along really well. Always great when that happens.

  What are y'all hoping for this coming Christmas? Specific toys? Possibly new electronics? Who knows? 
Have yourselves a merry little Christmas! 
Love y'all!

  Well. Last week was very rough. We got snowed in. I was on exchange for 3 days. Roads were more slippery than a greased fish. Power was out for several days. (Now if they power is out up here, nothing works. No heat, no water, nothing). Feels like this transfer is going to be interesting.
  Now, I can tell you one thing for certain, Jesus Christ knows you. Heavenly Father knows you. He knows what you are going through and understands how you feel. I felt like I was very near the breaking point earlier this week. Going through things that I had never experienced. I prayed fervently for help, and understanding. I felt like Heavenly Father really, and truly, listened to that prayer. He has indeed helped me. He has blessed my life so much. I can't express how thankful I am to my Heavenly Father for all that He has done for me.

  We are in a continuous process of Heavenly Father's design. Only if we are being Obedient as he asked do things happen as he has said. Our Agency leads to other experiences that we go through. Heavenly Father in each of those helps us to learn why we should or should not make that choice. Which will help and which will hinder.

  I testify to you, that we having a Loving Heavenly Father. He is more concerned for you than anyone could ever be. He cares for you so much. Yet, He also knows that you need to learn and experience for yourself.
I love you all and I am so thankful for the support and the emails.

  Who can believe that it has almost been 3 months since I stepped foot in the New England area. That is crazy.

  This week has been a blast. How has your weeks been? Not many adventure stories, but plenty of things happened this week. Way, way, way cold! Like in the teens cold. Like, this morning at 4:00 am, it was 4 degrees! At 10:00 it was barely 15! And it's only going to get colder! Wow. People live in this guys! They live here their whole lives! 

  Anyways, how has everything been? Anything awesome happen? How's the weather? Any interesting stories? Any questions? I really don't have much to talk about, I just go off of what I'm asked, so if you want to know something specific, ask it! 

Love y'all!

Alright! Holy Cow, 10 weeks already! That is ridiculous. How's everybody doing? Anything fun and exciting? Did I miss anything amazingly important? 

 Honestly, not much to tell y'all. We had three Thanksgiving dinners so that was crazy. Saw some really big dogs this week. One was a Rottweiler the size of a small bear then there was a Newfoundland dog which was also the size of a small bear. Both were crazy nice though so that was awesome. Rottweiler was just licking and licking and licking my church pants, and the Newfoundland dog just kinda rubbed up against me then went back inside. 

 Sorry, for the Short email, but we didn't have much to talk about this week! 

Here is a picture of the memorial that is all lit up for Christmas now! Hope you have a good week!

Love ya!
