Well, this crazy kid has officially  been out one year!! He absolutely loves Texas and loves his mission so much!! He has grown so much this past year! I am excited to see what this year will bring for him! Here is a little something he sent with his email this last Monday...

The only way for anyone to truly have testimony of the
Savior, a testimony of God, one must take the invitation from the Lord
and read the Book of Mormon. It is the strongest force in conversion,
and it is the only thing in the world that will help compel and
persuade people to change. Nothing will change ones soul, faith and
life more than the Book of Mormon. It is absolutely foolish for
someone to not take that invitation, because you have nothing to lose
by doing so, but everything to gain if you do. You can and will gain
peace in this life and eternal salvation in the world to come! What
better gift than that! We can gain a testimony of the Savior and know
that because of his Atonement there is hope in the world!

Love this Kid!!

Maybe Harry will take up farming in Texas??? 

What an animal!! hahaha

New Years and Missionary Tag Picture...Finally!!

And really though for the new year we didn't do anything, we
were just out doing the work! We tracted for a bit, and then we were
out inviting as many people as we can to get to church. Because
President Mortensen has started a new thing where from 5-9 on Saturday
nights we just focus on getting people to church! It's called
operation church and rescue! Haha but ya so that's what we did, then
we drank some sparkling cider and went to bed by 10:30! Because I a,
way to tired all the time to be able to stay up until 12!

This week was pretty good! We have been working with a lot of less
actives, and such, as well as working with the two people we have
baptismal dates with. Our investigator Christopher is getting baptized
this Saturday and we are so excited! It's been a long time coming for
sure! And then we are working with a 17 year old who's baptism is on
January 28th! So that's the main stuff we are doing as far as the work
is going.

I have been bugging him for a tag picture and this was also considered my Christmas gift because that is wanted most from him so he showed me the picture when we skyped with him and that also made my Christmas!!


As far as what we are doing for Christmas we have a few families we
are going to on Christmas Day as well as Christmas Eve!  A member had us  had us go out to the car and she gave us like fifty boxes of presents they bought us! They were awesome and they had just moved from Utah! But ya she was a sweet lady and we haven't met
the husband yet because he works a ton and is always out of town, so
she is basically taking care of her their 3 kids herself! But yet she
still got us a billion gifts! Love the people here in Brenham!

Getting to Skype with Harrison was the best Christmas present ever!! He sent me and his dad gifts from Texas! Which was really sweet!! His tiny Christmas tree he had on his table that he was pretty proud of and we kept trying to get him to smile and in true Harry fashion he doesn't give it up to easy! So we have a ton of him doing his crazy smile but I got him in the end and we caught his smile!! hahaha
