(Excerpts from Elder's email: December 9th, 2013)
So happy. The work has been good this week. The Lord works in mysterious ways. I bought more gloves because this week my finger were freezing. They were really sore!!!! I love you guys, but I'm starting not to miss home. I'm starting to really settle and love my home here in Rapids. The people here are truly my second family. I love them so much and it's going to break my heart when I have to transfer somewhere else.
I'm losing my color by the second. I am starting to look pale. We have been told not to worry about the different religions of the people in Wisconsin, but just to give them a Book of Mormon. I'm loving my missionary life so much. I LOVE TO TRACT!!! We were put down by a pastor this week but after talking to him for 10 minutes or so he accepted a Book of Mormon.
I feel like I haven't seen anything green in a while because everything is white and after awhile outside it starts to hurt your eyes. We are hitting the negative degrees every day weather wise. It is colder when the wind blows. I love and miss you all so much, but I'm just having the time of my life right now.
