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!

It snowed!

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! For the record, this form of the word titanic refers to the awesomeness of us, not the ship that was sunk by an iceberg. 😉 On a brighter note, it’s Monday again! Which means you get to hear from me again! So great. I know, hold the applause. 🙂

From Elder Ellis:

Hello everyone! This week has been awesome! So much has happened and I just can’t formulate words to tell you all the miracles. But I’ll try! 🙂 Let’s get started.

Last Monday we partied it up at the Hicken’s home with some other missionaries. We played basketball, frisbee in the rain, spaz, and volleyball! It was a lot of fun. Elder Anderson and I went on exchanges afterwards and we were able to visit some less active members that we normally don’t get to see.
