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.

From Elder Ellis (email dated 11/28/2016):

Good Morning everyone!

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 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! 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!

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! 🙂

It’s Fall! Yeah!

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. 😛
