Happy New Years everyone! This past week was pretty crazy. I guess one of the reasons why it was so crazy because it was Christmas. It is so crazy how Christmas has already come and gone. It was a great day and it was a blur! We started off the day by going to the McKinnley's home. They are a Senior Missionary couple that live in our apartment complex. They fed us breakfast and it was so nice of them! It was a good old time. Then we went up to the Visitor's Center and that was really awesome. While we were there we watched "How to Train Your Dragon 2" and it was really good. It was weird watching a movie again on the mission. It felt weird and good at the same time. Then we had a lunch at the Stake Center and that was fun as well. After the lunch we had a talent show and there was some really good shows. It was really funny. One of the acts that was really funny was the Chinese Elders. They did a skit with some authentic Chinese costumes that looked like lions and they had some dialogue that was quite witty. Another one of the acts that was good was The Temple Express. I had the opportunity to be apart of it and I enjoyed it a lot. The video turned out very well. Lastly, I got to Skype with my family! That was awesome. I have forgotten how crazy my family is... I love you all. Well, we had a couple of miracles that I was very grateful for. This past Tuesday we had one of the members of our Ward Bro. Green take us out to eat and then take us and our investigator Charles to the church for our Family Home Evening that we have as a Ward. Before the family home evening we met with Charles for a few minutes. He told us that he has been thinking a lot about baptism and he said that he was wanting to get baptized! He feels that it would been the right decision. It was so awesome! We are excited for him. We also were able to visit with Nichole Jones! She was one of the people that was baptized while I was in this area the first time that I was here. It was awesome. Well that's about it for this week! Happy New Years again!
Love, Elder Peterson
