Getting ready for Christmas

We've really enjoyed the 12 days of Christmas! And don't worry, Elder Andersen has put your sticky notes to great use. Personally, the pop tarts have been my favorite so far. We've had fun taking turns reading the stories out loud too.

Fun stuff is happening in Danville! On Monday one of our investigators quit smoking, and hasn't smoked since. He used the stop smoking program we have, so I now I know for a fact it works. Next month he'll be baptized with his wife and they want to be sealed in the temple a year later. We've got another investigator named Jonny getting baptized on Saturday.  He'll be going to the temple soon to do baptisms for the dead for his father who recently passed away, and we have another investigator who really wants to be baptized. She just struggles with Word of Wisdom addictions. So yeah, missionary work is going pretty good!

Elder Everett pretty much cooks all of our food now, which I don't complain at all about.  He's sort of teaching me how to cook. We've been baking a lot of goodies and taking them out to less actives and investigators. The three of us are having a lot of fun together, always someone to pick on.

Can you thank everyone for all the packages? Let Grandma know she'll be getting a great picture of me in the sweater she sent me. I've been so incredibly busy lately, even on P-day.  I wish I could write everyone, but I just don't have time.

Oh yeah, Elder Everett has been teaching me how to sing Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer in Inupiat. He's pretty fluent in it so it's been fun.

Welp, I'll tell you more details about me life on Friday! (Christmas day is one of the two days during the year we get to talk to Sam.  We'll have a Facebook video call from him.) I don't take pictures very often so here are some old ones I don't think I've sent yet.
