Actually scratch the quilt. I want the usual stocking stuff, yea know Wheat Thins, easy cheese and chocolate fruit orange or lime. I know I said no candy but tradition is more important. And I need a sweater vest because it blows hard and my chest gets cold fast. And I want pictures of Christmas! Oh and we have to decide when to call so me and Dustin can call and talk to each other too. I was also thinking if we had all our friends on missions call at the same time in the same place! But if not I'll call with Dustin.
My investigators are fine, well mostly. One girl’s guardians are so screwed in priority I am astonished. She is ready for baptism but they just don't plan on it. They ground her from church! She does need to do her homework but still she needs baptism more. Course they’re less active. Any way the family we are teaching is progressing slowly but surely. We picked one up this week, he just needs time to feel ready and harry just needs to quit smoking! He’s more active than half the stake, and would have been baptized years ago if the missionaries had been smart! Oh well they learned from it so I guess it wasn't a waste. Hopefully we will be here to ensure his baptism. Well, Edna, she is ready she just needs to go to church three times and she can be baptized, she is older than grandpa and has done everything; she's a nurse and could be a doctor if she didn’t think that was superfluous at her age. She knew several of the presidents, sang for lots of them, was acquainted with Elvis and has connections all over the places. She is an amazing woman. And Alyssa we are going to have dinner with her and her father and step mom and make sure she’s been going to church, and hopefully commit her to baptism.
It seems that we need to work harder, I fell back into my green ways because , well Zachreson was my second companion so it was just habit, but we our working with improvements and are making excellent progress. Merry Christmas!
