Happy New Year!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! This week has been a great week. It has been a lot different as far as missionary work goes, because of the Christmas season but it was a good different. We did a lot of caroling with the district here in SLO and that was a lot of fun. We also caroled with some missionaries up in Atascadero. We were also able to get in contact with a less-active, recent convert. He got baptized back in February and has strayed from the path since then. His name is Mason and we tried to contact him early on in the week, and when we talked with him he told us now wasn't a good time. We asked when would be a good time and he said Saturdays are better and shut the door. Turns out on Saturday he called us and asked if we were coming over today. We went over and had a great lesson with him. He suffers from severe anxiety and has really struggled, but wants the spirit back in his life. He is starting to make his way back :). We also taught a brief lesson to Rhianea who told us she has met with missionaries before. We invited her to church and she came! She found the 2 other YSA girls to make friends with right off the bat, so that was great, and I think she had a good time. We hope to start teaching her this week to see where she is at, and I think she will make for a great investigator. I am also looking forward to having a ward to go to since we have just gone to the family ward the last 2 weeks. I also got to talk to you, my family, so that is always a bonus. We opened our Christmas presents Christmas morning, and that is always fun. Thank you everyone who sent me something. Thank you Grandma spaulding for the apron I feel like and can cook so much better now. You all are great and you will hear from me again next year.
