23 December 2013 First Words from Nixa, Missouri

I am having a great time, everyone.  I love being able to serve the Lord at this time.  Lots of people "know more then we could ever teach them" which is a common attitude in these parts.But I love the times I have been able to help others.  We have been tracting, teaching, and all the fun stuff.

Note to self: Never, I repeat. NEVER fall asleep in church!  Especially as a Representative of Christ. Wow! that was severely embarrassing.  Good thing we have this amazing thing called the Atonement.  It is the most important thing to remember this Christmas Season, especially when you are giving and receiving gifts.   Christ gave the ultimate gift and that is the gift of ever lasting life or the Atonement.  That's why we give gifts at Christmas time. 

I love the work out here in Nixa, Missouri.  The members and non-members alike.  Well, I never was too good at this whole emailing thing, but I will say there are some nice trailer homes in this area.  It's amazing how beautiful they are.  Also, there are lots of people that work for the hospital and they have some crazy mansions.  

It always amazes me how much Beauty there can be in such a place with no mountains... wait they do have mountains sort of... if you can call them that!?!  haha  We would call them hills, but we live near the Ozark Mountains. 

I am being fed well, almost every night.  I am sure that will slow down after Christmas, but hey people are great here. My companion Elder Hughes is pretty much obsessed with Andre Buccelli.... or how ever you spell it. haha oh well.

 We found this awesome less active/inactive couple an old lady that is 86 and her husband is 63.  She collects cookie jars.  Kinda reminded me of my Grandma Caldwell and her porcelain doll collection. 

Thank you all for your support.  God loves you all.  See Luke 2:8-14

Well, I got to go.  Here is my address.  Mom, distribute information to whom ever you wish. Would you make sure Josh Dansie gets this info? And others as well.  

Thanks for the amazing support again. Hope to see you all in 2.  Letters go a lot faster to this new address than sending them to the mission home.  LOVE YOU ALL
