Dear Family and Friends,                   Monday, January 06, 2014 at 11:55 (EST)

This last week was really good.

I got to do some things that were a lot of fun.
- I replaced a members car battery in 2*F. It took a little while to do and my hands got cold pretty quick.
-I finally got to get on the Matco tool Truck. I got a promo flyer and a pen and a little promo screwdriver. I might buy some gloves from him sometime.
On Monday we taught a family home evening lesson. It went really well. We even brought some cookies that some members gave us as refreshments.

On Tuesday we exchanged with the Zone Leaders. I got to go down to Laconia with Elder Crane. We had a pretty good day. We did some service for some people. We brought in a bunch of wood from outside and put it next to their stove. The funnest part was going to dinner at a members house. The mother is an active member and the son is a less active member. The son told us a bunch of his hunting stories. He is also really into dirtbiking. He showed us his CRF450X. It was a pretty sweet bike. We talked a little bit about dirtbiking. That was a lot of fun.

On Wednesday we had District Meeting. It was really fun. We just shared object lessons with each other the whole time. That is our goal this week is to teach an object lesson in every lesson. Wednesday evening we had dinner with a family. It was good as always. We also had a really good lesson about the Book of Mormon.

On Thursday Manchester got pounded with snow. Some parts got 18 inches to 2 feet. Here in Berlin we got 4 and in Colebrook they got nothing. Because of the amount of snow in Manchester our mission president asked us not to drive. That was a bummer because we had service on the farm scheduled. The day turned out alright and we taught a family with children. We are teaching them about the Articles of Faith.

On Friday we read the Children's Book of Mormon with a child. Then we went to a families house. We also taught a man and his two kids.

On Saturday we taught a lesson with Sister and her friend. The lessons are going a lot better there. After that we went to a family's house for dinner. They invited one of our investigators to come. That was a lot of fun.

On Sunday we went to church. After church Brother Hall took us to give a blessing to an older lady in the branch. After that we taught a family with children about Articles of Faith 2,3,and 4. Then we taught a man and his girlfriend, and his daughter. We had a fun magic trick for that one.

Well we will see if I am leaving next week. Hopefully not.
