17 February 2014

Elder Quayle and I with our investigator, Max Manley, after his baptism, which was held on February 15th

Happy Belated Valentine's Day to y'all, too!

Well, this past week went by pretty fast and intense but really good.  Our investigator, Max Manley, got set for baptism, he was baptized and confirmed, and we are very happy.  The Lord has really moved upon him to get to this wonderful point in his life and I thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. ....Transfers are Thursday of this week; whatever happens, we'll go forward.  

The weather is being weird again; this weekend saw the highs in the upper 40s and then it snowed a lot last night.  It's in the 30s today but it's expected to warm up back into the 50s this week.  We shall see what happens.

That's pretty crazy about the wintry weather being scattered all over the country, but it looks like you're finally out of it in Houston.  Hopefully Buffalo can endure until warmer weather rolls around.  That's horrible about Jenny's kneecap (Elder Mcmurray's Aunt Jenny slipped on some ice and fractured her kneecap); I'll drop her a line and I'll send a birthday email to Grandma M. ...


I should be fine without the contact lenses for at least awhile; no rush.  I'm sending some pictures your way, so brace yourselves.

Me with Elder Searle.  I made up a song about him based on the tune of "Sail", by AWOLNATION: Searle! /He's just under 6'3/ He's Cortez's greenie/He was in the MTC with me/ Searle!

Me with Elder Riley, one of my Zone Leaders.  He's completing his mission this week.  This photo was taken at an all-you-can-eat Asian restaurant in Council Bluffs called Hu-Hot; we went there for lunch after Zone Training last week.  It's terrific!
