Hello from the Snow!

As of right now it is snowing...

I hate snow....it's cold, dirty, slushy, and just sounds gross when you step on it. Anyways, enough about that… :-)

My week so far has been a really good one. Our youth lessons are a lot of fun, and more and more kids are starting to come. This week we taught the 1st lesson to them, and the Spirit was really strong when we talked about the experience Joseph Smith had with the First Vision...

I love teaching the youth, they are just so much fun, I love it. So that's why I’ve decided after my Mission I want to go work at the EFY (note - the “Especially for Youth” program is sponsored by Brigham Young University and is a summer program for youth ages 14-18) in Arizona.

I can't wait, it'll be so much fun!!

So, on Thursday we taught the Seminary class. Here in Utah the school system is weird. They have K-6 as elementary, 7-9 as middle school, then 10-12 as high school. ??? Doesn't make sense. So we were at the Middle School teaching the freshmen. It was awesome! We taught about Ammon from Alma 17-19...

It was really cool. We had some role-plays and all that fun stuff. I really enjoyed it.

But the best thing of this week was.........KRISTI WAS BAPTIZED!!! That was the best baptism I have gone too. The Spirit was more than strong, it was almost over-powering! There were like 40-45 people there. It was amazing. I was in tears when I went up and bore my testimony. I don't think I have ever cried harder in my life. It was pure awesomeness! Anyways, that was pretty much the highlight of my week.

Sorry this is so short, that's really all I have to report.
