November 18

Sorry I wasn't here yesterday. We had our have mission training with Elder Nash. Except he couldn't come, he had an emergency call, & had to be somewhere else. So instead we heard from President Jacobsen, his wife, the assistants, & a couple mission leaders.
At the end, President Jacobsen shared one of his pet-peeves, he said we should never refer to Christmas as xmas. Satan is trying to take Christ out of Christmas, so we should not forget who's Holiday this is for. Also we'll be getting some Christmas pass-along cards, with a link to a video.

We had to drop off the car to finally get it repaired, from when we hit a deer. After we got hit by it, we didn't get the car back until a month later & it still wasn't repaired. So that meant we had to take care of it. And now the other car that's being rotated got put in the shop, so now no one has a car. Which is fine, because now we get to contact people we see on the streets.

I bought some toll house cookie dough to smooth things over with a family that got just a little upset, but I accidentally burned the cookies, which I was sad about. But they're not bad when you take a steak knife to them & sand off the bottom.

We helped one of the members' son set up his second barbershop in town. It looks absolutely amazing & classy. I have to send you some pictures if I get the chance.

Elder Peterson & I get to teach our top investigator again this week. When we walked in he was playing Destiny, & he's telling us about how much he liked it. So of course I had to tell him. Now he want's me to tell you that you did a great job on the game.
Anyway. We taught the Restoration, & he really liked it. He's such a great listener, and he understands & agrees with everything we teach. He already told us he knows the Book of Mormon is true, from reading on verse.

We got him to church Sunday, & he loved it. We had a high counselman say a few things that were pretty deep in gospel principles, but he had no problem with it. It was great the high counselman was there, he had other great things to say.

Just got the conference Ensign. I love the quote from Henry B. Eyring "Human judgment and logical thinking will not be enough to get answers to the questions that matter most in life. We need revelation from God." There's a people we come across that don't get that, it makes so much sense though.

It's been a great week.
Fri morning we saw snow outside (sticking) It melted later that day, but we're getting more, and it's saying on the ground. Looks like winter's here.

Glad to hear from all of you, enjoy the cooler season.
