Hey Mom! Happy Thanksgiving!
Boy what a week! 3 exchanges! Thanksgiving! Transfer calls! (We're staying by the way), Alex Boye! Craziness!
We spent Thanksgiving at the Akin's! It was fun! Loads of food and good company! They have 4-5 kids who all have some sort of disability. A couple with Aspergers, another with a medical condition etc. Very interesting family dynamics but they are awesome! Their youngest boy wanted us to play Twister of all games RIGHT after eating... Elder Peterson and I decided to give it a shot and had a good time even though we were so full! haha

It's been snowing off and on this week. It's super cold! Went on Exchanges with Elder Burbank in his area and we biked for a good chunk of it. I can now officially say that I have biked on my mission!! In 21 degree winter cold to boot! Whoo!  It was great!


Elder Burbank and Elder Ranta are both getting transferred. I LOVE Elder Burbank to death so it's sad to see him go but he's only going to Sel…

My Life is so Crazy!!!

Hey Mom! 
This week I went on 3 exchanges and I'm looking at 3 more this week! My life is so crazy! I feel like my days are going so fast though! I definitely feel blessed through all I'm having to do! We found three new investigators after knocking on a door 5 minutes before dinner! We shared a 5 minute message with a sweet Hispanic family and they invited us back! We don't yet know how solid they will be but we are hoping they continue! We are also working with another little family. They are investigators we inherited when we got here. They are so golden but the thing holding them back is not being able to attend church. They also haven't felt a sure answer for themselves about the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon but they are amazing and read it a lot! They are some of the most spiritually in tune people I've met in awhile!

Had interviews with President and Sister Lewis! Always fun!
We are having Thanksgiving with the Akin family and we are so excited! Can'…

Hi Mom! It's been a good week! Everything is Ok!

I've been running around like mad because I have 8 Elders in my district and I have to exchange with each of them this transfer! I'm basically spending half my time out of the area, then in haha! It was so much easier with Sister missionaries because the Sister Training Leaders would do that for me and then report on how it went! Oh well, it's fun :)
We stopped in at the Mission office the day that you called and picked up something for E Peterson. They were telling me that they loved talking to you! haha I love the Calls and the Thompsons so much! 
For music can you send a copy of Kenny G Faith and perhaps see if there's any Disney Motab? haha! A tie would be cool if possible! I don't know... I seriously don't really want much. Just something easy :)
Yeah, I got an email from both grandma and Bishop Brown and they told me about the changes in the wards too! Sounds crazy! Hope things will make some …
