William's December 18th Letter

2012 December 18
We had a great week. We met with several investigators, started teaching a family who is interested in the gospel had good discussion with fellow elders about the many things we can do to help our investigators out this time of year, our investigators have almost all shown progression, except a few whose current circumstance leaves them unable to attended meetings. But it’s so nice to see the spirit of the season in the homes we visit.
I won't stay at the Montgomery’s for Christmas, we both are getting transferred and I am going to Willard Bay which is just south of Brigham City. So back North for a spell, it will be fun. I think I will see who I can go to for Christmas, a lot of the people I know up there have missionaries out so they may be busy talking to them. I need to see what the plan is though because I am transferred I don't know the area very well. But we cans still let you know what is going to happen since I don't have a time or anything yet.
But I love you guys’ lots!

William's December 11 Letter

2012 December 11
Our week was fantastic.
 We have reserved a lot of referrals, most of which are self-referred others have strong fellowships. We have been working on contacting them. We have had a lot of referrals, our investigators our doing well. They have been getting the assistance they need from the Lord. It is good to see it the spirit of the season is spreading and everyone is cheerful. We had a mission conference the other day and find very good skills and new principles to apply to the work and we have seen them assist, small things that have made a huge difference in the work. It’s so nice to know that Lord is in the middle of the work. I enjoy it.  I love you lots.

William's December 4 Letter

This week was, very good, we haven't had baptism but a lot of lessons. We are having trouble getting some people committed and a lot of other people aren't able too. But most are excited about the gospel. We have been working really hard. We have been helping a lot with the wards visiting and teaching them. Funny enough not reserved to the Relief Society.
They all seem to enjoy it. We get a lot of referrals thought. Visiting those who are potentially interested, and it’s so much fun helping them. I got to talk to Tyson Sunday; his wife's grand parents live in my area! So that was fun. We got a Christmas tree up!  Full size one that we decorated ourselves! It took a long time because we had to put the bows on one by one and I was super intelligent and did top to  bottom...... this is said in a sarcastic tone. We deliver Christmas messages a lot and have been encouraged to be familiar with the church's Christmas special on Mormon dot org. I miss you all lots!

William's November 27 Letter

Thanksgiving was good..... I can't eat as much as I use too. I was full on the first plate and I haven't been able to eat very much since. But it was good we spent most of the day with the Montgomery’s and that was a good time. We had opportunity and talked with their family. The past week has been good, although our investigators haven't come to church we have many many referrals and just need to get out and visit and we will have a plethora of work. We had the experiences of teaching ward councils and the young men; we have seen a lot of good success from this. The wards are refocusing on the work, both stake presidents our very good about missionary work. We have had good talks from general authorities giving encouragement and motivation, and both gave talks on the overwhelming importance of the work and gave it to the stake to prepare to serve a mission young and old and gave them the charge, the best way to prepare is to help now. I found that exciting. We received many referrals since, very good week.

My favorite part of the week though was exchanges back to West Ogden , I was with Elder Green and we had a great time together teaching and I even got a chance to say hi to a lot of my friends; they are doing well and a lot of old investigators our doing well.... although some still won't quit smoking
