Dear Family and Friends, Monday, December 29, 2014 at 2:58 p.m. (EST)
Things are going so well here. I am loving serving in the Montpelier Ward. So many things are going on that I cant tell you about everything.
It was great to be able to skype home and see everybody. I enjoyed the presents everyone sent. I really appreciated them. So just to sum up what happened this week:
Monday: We got to take a part member family to the Joseph Smith Memorial. They loved it. We have an appointment set up to go over with Bishop on Tuesday. Bishop is super excited that we are getting some work going here.
Tuesday: We tracted in the dark in the rain at an apartment building and 5 people in a row said to come back and share a Christmas message; but then the last house was a drunk lady that thought we were cute.
Wednesday: We had Zone Meeting and got to watch Its a Wonderful Life, and eat pizza.
Thursday: We went tracting on Christmas day and were able to share Luke 2 twice on people's doorstep. No one got mad at us.
Friday: We were able to spend about 2 hours tracting Graniteville. We found a ton of potentials and got to teach a 4 minute Restoration lesson. I got to talk to a guy my age about trucks, we invited him after the conversation and he said that it would be great for his girlfriend and young daughter. Elder Stephenson bought me a sub sandwich.
Saturday: We tracted in Marshfield and Cabot. One man told us not to knock on his door because if we did "I will hunt you down with the power of sin."
Today we got to go on an awesome hike around the Barre Granite Quarries. These are the same quarries that the Joseph Smith Memorial came from, so pretty cool.
