December 9, 2013 - Email Home

If you were thinking of sending a letter via snail mail or a package to Elder Armstrong send it this week.  Transfers are next week on the 19th.  He doesn't know if he will get transferred but if he does, we won't know his new address until Friday or Saturday which is cutting it close to Christmas time.

I loved the pictures in dropbox! haha I miss you guys! You guys seem to have had a lot of crazy fun this last week!
So yes, the weather was crazy yesterday! The snow started to fall at about 8:00AM, so we walked through it to Church! Lets just say Elder F was in heaven! He was in a daze trying to touch as much of the snow as he possibly could! I just laughed at him, and he ignored me! At each hour of Church, they would say, "We've checked on the weather, and it seems like we will continue. If it gets worse, we will dismiss you so you can get home safely". It really blew my mind that they would cancel church because of an inch or two of snow.... Haha!
We actually got a text yesterday from the Assistants to the President that told us to stay home as much as possible, and if we needed to go anywhere that we should get a ride from members! So yesterday we just chilled in our apartment with Elder R and Elder K.
Oh man! I bet Kellie did a great job with her missionary farewell talk! She is really amazing! I am proud of her and Mexico is going to be very blessed to receive her! Way to go Kel!
So we actually haven't seen S in a while. Sadly, the last two weeks have been crazy. This week we will try and visit her, but we would need a male adult if we actually wanted to teach her a lesson.
On Monday we met with the S Family. They are a Catholic Family that really loves LDS Members! They have a great opinion of our church. We taught them the Restoration as a practice lesson. What better way to practice than to practice with nonmembers? We extended a baptism invite at the end, and Mr. S said, "right now, I'm Catholic, and I don't feel I need to change, but if I ever feel otherwise, I'd love to be baptized!" That made us really happy!
Tuesday we had Zone Conference. President Riggs, Sister Riggs, and our Zone Leaders taught us about Repentance, Faith, and Commitments. I love President Riggs. He really is inspired of God. He is one of the smartest men that I have ever known! ( I Guess that's what happens when you become an attorney....)
Wednesday, I got a fever, but I still tried my best to do missionary work. After dinner, I came back and fell asleep. After about 3 hours I woke up, having broke the fever! So I wasn't sick for long!
Thursday we were excited to meet with Sarah, but things got canceled. So sadly went about finishing our day by talking to members.
Friday is always one of the busiest days of the week! We have weekly planning on Fridays, so we are pretty much busy until 5:00 PM planning for the next week, and going and doing our facebook and time. It was really cold and rainy! But my clothes kept me warm!
Saturday, we played soccer with some members and nonmembers again! It was muddy, and extremely fun! No progress with the nonmembers, but one of them offered us a ride from the field back to our apartments! So the seeds are starting to grow!
So, when Christmas comes around, I should be able to Skype with you! There are a lot of people with Skype who are willing to let us use them. But last resort would be calling you on a Phone!
Oh by the way, JS will be driving to Utah from here. He told me that if there was anything I wanted to be delivered to our house that he could drop it off near New Years! So hopefully I can get something together!
I love you all so much! This church is true. Our Father in Heaven knows us. He loves us more than we can ever comprehend. Jesus Christ is the Savior and our Lord. He died so that we could return to live with our Heavenly Father. I love Him, and I am so grateful for all that He has done for us.
Elder Dexton Armstrong
