November 26, 2012

Dear Mommy,
                Well, we had a good trip down to St. Moritz. There wasn`t much to do there since all the summer stuff is closed and none of the winter stuff was open, but it was still really, really beautiful. Let’s see.... my Thanksgiving was rather unexciting. We didn`t really celebrate at all, so it was just another day. But it sounds like you had a lot of fun for thanksgiving. That is good :) 
                I really am having a hard time remembering what we did this week. The time flew past. We had a finding day in Zurich. That was pretty good. I enjoyed it a lot, and we had a lot of fun. We tried to do some Christmas caroling but it wasn`t so successful. But we did find a really cool young man from Brazil who was really excited to learn more. He was the first person I talked to during our finding day. You know it is going to be a good day when the first person has interest. 
                Other than that we have just been focusing on our investigators. Yuri says thank you so much and that he loves you and that you are the best! (for the bengay) He is doing good. We were able to have a pretty good serious talk with him, and it helped me realize more clearly what his challenges are and how we can help him. He pretty much just needs a social conversion and he will be baptized. So that is what we are working on. We are trying to get him invited to family home evenings and such so that he can have the support necessary to make the changes in his life. 
                Kurt is doing good as well. We talked a lot with our branch president and he thinks Kurt can be baptized before the end of the year! So that is awesome news. We will see how it goes this week. We are teaching the word of wisdom tomorrow :) it will be good.
                We also met with a cool young guy named Iqbal. We had given him a Book of Mormon a while ago, and he had googled it and had watched a lot of anti-Mormon stuff, like "hi, my name is .... and I am a ex Mormon" I guess that that is like the anti site. It was interesting how people would twist and turn truths, and how partial truths are really lies. anyways, moral of the story, we were able to straighten out a few misunderstandings, and Iqbal committed to reading in the Book of Mormon and meeting at least one more time, although he is busy with school and couldn’t say exactly when. But it went really well. We have a lot of really cool potential investigators who we just need to meet with :) and we are prepping for Christmas time. We are going to go caroling a lot. 
                Anyways, time flies, I can`t believe it is almost December again, sorry this email sounds really boring as I read it, but oh well, I guess it will help you increase in patience and love. Don`t forget that I love you! You`re the best!
