Transfers, Trees, and Trindad Scorpions

Hey, all!

Yeah, that's crazy about the spicy food (I made a dry rub using Trinidad Scorpion peppers as the base.  We used it on a smoked brisket; it was like eating the Sun). I don't think it's a good idea to eat super spicy food, whether or not you can handle it.  However, I keep hearing people talk about ghost peppers; maybe Noah (who likes the spicy stuff) should try one. 

Another great week of fellowshipping less-actives and investigators.  We're very grateful for all of the things going on.  Transfers are this week; several people are finishing their missions in our Zone so it's gonna be interesting to see what happens.  Here are some more pics:

Hey, all!

What a week; challenges come and go and triumphs with them.  We had an amazingly miraculous week.  Three new investigators and 15 returning less-actives!  We're deeply humbled and grateful and we're looking forward to another great week!  Sorry, can't talk for long, but here are some long-awaited pics coming your way!

Mom,it's great to hear that everyone's doing well!  I'm sorry I can't chat for long, but things are going great.  Christmas music season is upon us and the ward choir is moving forward.  I'm already in a quartet for, "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing!"  Wonderful stuff!

Love and prayers for all,

Elder McMurray

New Investigators and Reactivations...But No Photos

Hey, Mom!

Thank you for filling me in on the details from back home and I appreciate your words of wisdom and counsel regarding last week.  I apologize for cutting things short last week; we had a borderline fiasco with car shares (don't ask) and we had to cut emails short.  It was quite a good week, though.  Tons of less-actives came back to Church, which is surprising considering we had Stake and General Conferences the past two weeks, and we got two new investigators!

Post-mission plans?  I think I'll look into both BYU and BYUI.  

To answer your question about what age is the best age to serve a mission,  age is more of a number than anything else.  Experience, dedication, and maturity are the key factors in success. 

I hope y'all enjoy your holiday and I love and pray for you all.

P.S.  I apologize, I know I promised pictures, but for some reason, the USB port on the computer that I'm using isn't working.  Hopefully you'll see 'em next week!
