Here we go everyone! This is gonna be great! I'm still here in South Royalton VT!

How is everyone? How has your day been? Week? 
I heard y'all got some snow over the week? How was that? We have a big snow storm, named 'Juno' coming in. That should be fun, basically the entire mission is grounded. Nobody can drive their cars, too big of a risk. Should be fun! Lots of snow shoveling! We heard we'll get anywhere from 12" to 18" of snow! That'll be crazy! 

We didn't really have much of anything happen this week. We tracted a lot. Knocking a lot of doors, but no one is ever interested. Our car is in the shop so we've been walking for about a week now.

 Hope everything is going well! Great to hear from all of you! Hope you all have a fantastic day! What are you're plans for this week? Can y'all believe it is almost February 2015? Wow! Time flies! Oh, and some pictures, I was admonished by one of you, who shall remain nameless (Elder Tulmau, cough, cough). Anyways that is all I have! Love y'all! Have a wonderful day!

Alright, alright, alright! Everybody here we go!

A whole week that just flew by! Wow! How is everyone doing? Y'all being obedient and doing what you're told? haha! Well, this week we set up more appointments with members than planned for tracting hours. So, holy cow. That worked really well. Everything here is starting to move forward! We've gotten in contact with most of the promising Investigators that we are now working with! Hopefully we can help them with their progression! 

What have y'all been up to? Anything amazingly awesome? Noteworthy achievements? Possibly, new sand storms? Wind blowing as usual? Y'all should see the wind up here, it blows quite viciously through the trees and everything sways, it'd be gorgeous if I weren't scared that the tree was going to fall on me! 

Anyways, I don't have much to tell you! This week has flown by and I guess I just don't remember most of it! Have a good day everyone!

Love you!

Wow has the time flown! There is no way it has been 4 months!

How have y'all been? How was your week? It got down to -20 degrees here one day earlier this week and now it is snowing! Woo! Going to be a fun time this coming week! It is supposed to drop down into the negative degrees for several days! Sheesh!

Other than the weather forecast, we've been able to find some people who were investigating the church that stopped, mostly because we couldn't contact them! It's great to have found them though! We have one baptism coming up, (hopefully) on the 24th and possibly another one. We just have to have a time to sit down with the guy and discuss a date and time and all that jazz!

My week totally flew by! Don't remember half of it! My companion is French speaking, so we have an hour of language study for him to keep learning French. He is trying to teach me, and I understand a little, I can kinda have a very brief conversation with him, if he talks very slowly and gives me time to translate out loud! It is pretty fun though! We're having a blast!

I want to tell all of you, that you never need be alone. I've discovered that on my mission so far. Sometimes when we feel we need to be strong and carry on by ourselves are the moments when Jesus Christ is right there to catch us as we break down. I testify to you that it is okay to ask for help. Never feel like you are alone or that no one cares about your problems, or that no one understands or thinks they are important enough. There is one who always will, and always does. "The Son of Man hath descended below them all." D&C 122:8. I testify that he did that, so that you and I, and everyone in the entire world can see that, there is one who is there for you. Don't deny him his calling. He has descended so far, so that he can lift us up!

Love y'all!

Oh, and a nice little sunset in Misty Vermont!

Here is a new week, in the new year! My blackout year! (Where a missionary is on a mission from January 1 to December 31). This is going to be great!

How is everyone doing? How was your New Years? It is wicked cold up here, but also wicked fun! What have y'all got planned for this week? Anything amazing? Or just the same old, same old?

I don't really have any amazing adventures for this week. I can't remember much of the week it kinda just flew by. The most interesting things were on Sunday. Church was postponed due to Snow storm. Therefore, in the morning we went and shoveled several drive ways and the walk ways for our apartment complex. The guys that came to do that later, Got out, looked around confused, and then just smiled. They were so happy! It was ridiculous! One of them ran around with this huge smile on his face and went and shoveled the snow around the garbage cans, because that was really all that was left to do! He was super happy!

Never realize how service affects people until you see their reactions towards it. It was way cool!

I love y'all! Keep on moving forward!
