December is [almost] halfway over??

Man time seems to fly by on my mission. Or maybe it's just that I'm getting older and so time just goes by faster by itself. Or both.
But this week was awesome! We had a couple Christmas parties which were really good. Well, we really only went to one because we had too many appointments to be able to stay for the other ones. But the one in 2nd ward was totally successful. We had Danielle, her two daughters, the Aldamo family, Thomas (more on him later) and Joey! And a few other people we are working with. It was crazy trying to bounce back and forth talking to everyone! But that's how missionary work should be. By the time we got back to our food it was super cold haha. But hey it's worth it! We got appointments to meet with a lot of people from that party. And the ward saw how hard we were working which I hope in turn will make them get the missionary vibe going. :) 
Thomas! (Different than Tommy Watson) He's a guy we met while just going door to door, and he is a really humble guy. He's been through a tough life and wants something better. When we met with him he kept saying that he "needs something more". He said he's been to a bunch of churches but he feels like they're always missing something. That is EXACTLY what a missionary wants to hear!! haha. So we're going to stop by his place Thursday. 

Tommy Watson- He's someone that the missionaries had worked with in the past, but for work related problems didn't end up getting baptized. Since we've been meeting with him, he said a lot of his questions have been answered! That's always a nice thing to hear as a missionary too. He's really eager to learn about things and wants to get baptized really badly! :) He knows that what we're teaching him is true he said.

Thysen Watson (not related to Tommy) is a lady that the missionaries have been working with for YEARS and she finally agreed to a baptism date! So we'll be working with her closely to make sure she feels ready to be baptized. She has some obstacles that she feels she needs to get over, but we know she can. :) 

Heather Post- She's also on date to be baptized, and her two daughters can be too! Right now we're just focusing on her, but we're going to ask if they want to too. She is really excited to get baptized as well! When we asked her, she threw her hands in the air and was like "YES!!" hahahaha it was awesome. The Lord really does prepare people that are willing to hear the gospel! 

We got to go to the Salt Lake City Temple! And go through it! IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL! I've heard people say that it is, but I never knew it was until I actually went through it. We went through as a mission, but my mission president said that we couldn't bring our cameras. So sadly I don't have any pictures for you guys, I'm sorry! But know that it was awesome. ;)

Well as always I hope all is going well and know that I love you!!
