Tooele Week 2: Snow with a Side of Christmas


Dear Family and Friends,

Merry Christmas!! Christmas has come and gone again! This Christmas was amazing! We had a HUGE snow storm come in on Christmas Eve and dropped well over a foot of snow all over Tooele and we were walking in it, well up past our knees!! It's great though and it was defiantly a very white Christmas! A few missionaries gathered together at 6 to open our presents and such and it was awesome! I got a lot of cool winter gear and a ton of rad socks!! haha!! Thank you to everyone that sent me stuff for Christmas. It was awesome! I love you guys so much!

We went caroling with the youth in one of our wards (congregation) and went by a few families in need in the area and dropped off some goodies for them which was pretty cool to be a part of. It was just really cold!! Haha! We also had a lesson with someone new this week. It was a family that are less actives and they have an 11 year old daughter and 9 year old son that want to be baptized. So we got to know them and the dad said the daughter had to wait till she was 12. :/ But it's alright, we are gonna keep working with the family and see if we help them out and such. A lot of our investigators are out of town so we weren't able to do too much last week.

But, the best part of my week was being able to Skype home on Christmas after Church which was awesome!! It was so cool to see everyone and to talk about the last 6 months together!  And I didn't cry at all (just kidding haha) but it was great. The next time I get to call home will be on Mothers Day!

I love you all and I can't wait to hear how all y'all’s Christmases went!
