Good morning everyone. Holy cow, it’s December already. Yes, the subject was a reference to a Taylor Swift song. I think it was one. but, has this year just flown by or what? It has for me. To think a year ago I was in La Crosse with Elder Yang and now a year later I’m in Eau Claire with Elder Yang again! God works in mysterious ways! Well this week has been quite the week. Let’s get right into it!
Yes, it’s time to hear from me again, so soon, right? Thursday wasn’t even a week ago, but in the time that I have emailed, there have been a lot miracles. I think we should get right into it!
First things first, the Church has put out its new Christmas initiative! #LightTheWorld. Light the world through service in December. There is a new video that you can check out on Mormon.org. Starting December 1st, there will be a new video released to encourage and inspire everyone to do service in small ways around you everyday leading up to Christmas. I encourage you all to check it out and do those acts of service everyday! It will make your Christmas better! 🙂

You can clearly see what’s on my mind for Thanksgiving. FOOD! Yum!! So I know you all have been dying to hear from me, it’s alright, hold the applause, I’m here. The mission has decided to have us email on Thursday instead of Monday. So that is my leave of absence for the past three days. You’ll hear from me again in like…three more days? So next week’s email will be shorter. Just like your soon-to-be-Thanksgiving dinners, this email will be big and delicious! I’ve got a lot of good stories to tell and a lot of time too. So here we go! 🙂
Hello, my fellow everyones! This week has been so crazy and so fast! I can’t wait to tell you all about it!! Before starting, I just want to say how fast this transfer has gone by. It’s been another six weeks that have literally just flown by. I can’t even comprehend how fast it’s going. Serious, Elder Cummings, Sister Peterson, we only have 18 weeks left. CRAZY! Sister Turner…you only have six weeks left. So time flies! Cherish all the memories and time you have left! 🙂 Elder Thao, in two days you’ll be sitting in your house not knowing what to do, so email me. 😛
Drumroll please…ELDER YANG AND I ARE STAYING IN EAU CLAIRE!!!! Woot! I’m so excited to work here in Eau Claire and party it up for Thanksgiving and Christmas!

This week kind of just slipped by all too quickly. I mean it was Halloween, then all of a sudden it’s November, and now we had to turn our clocks back. Time is moving waaaaaay too quickly. I only have a certain amount of time to be a missionary and I need to cherish it. Well, onto how this week went shall we? 🙂
Hello everyone! Man, this week has just flown by, it’s gone so fast! And, it’s Halloween! So Happy Halloween! Or for my league playing friends, happy harrowing! Crazy. I hope you all have plenty of fun activities planned for today, one of which includes reading the rest of this email! So I’ll get started with my week! 🙂
Hello everyone! It’s been another week! Too fast at this point… It’s already Monday. So many things happened this past week, so I’ll get right to it!
On last Monday, we went with the sisters to visit one of their investigators and had lunch with them. It was fun, we also planned out our costumes for Halloween, stay tuned I’m still debating if I want to attach a sneak peek below. It was pretty fun.
