Merry Christmas!!! Christmas Morning we went over to the Rices and we
had a sour doe pancake eating contest and the Record is 30! Elder
Casia got 15, Elder O Brien got 14, and I got 20! I felt like I was
going to Explode! Then went to our ward mission leaders house and
Skyped my Family! Pretty sweet to see everyone! Everyone is getting so
big, Its crazy! After we Skyped we went and saw a few people and then
went to the Filipino Christmas party! That was Crazy! They know how to
have fun and have parties! There was a ton of non members there and we
were able to get there info and we should be stopping by in the

We went and saw a potential Investigator that was at the Filipino
Christmas Party, Her name is Early and she is Filipino! We went over
with the Roy Family and Early was definitely prepared to receive the
Restored Gospel! Everything made sense to her and when we invited her
to be baptized she said "Yes, Because its Christs Church"! She will be
getting baptized on the 17th of January 2015!

We had church and after church right when bishop was leaving he heard
the phone ring in the church and he went in and answered the phone and
it was a lady who lives in California and her niece lives in Kodiak.
She told Bishop that she has been fasting for 2 days for her Niece in
Kodiak to have a chance to receive the missionaries into her home
because the Niece does not like the Mormon church especially the
missionaries! But she told bishop that her nieces daughter that is 20
months old just had 2 seizures yesterday and they just got out of the
ER and are willing to do anything! So the lady that lives in
California called her and asked if she would like the missionaries to
give a blessing to her 20 month old Daughter and she said yes! So
bishop came to us and told us and gave us the Information and we
called her and went over and gave her 20 month old Daughter a blessing
and after the blessing she told us that we can stop by any time and
that she feels a lot better now!

Well that was my awesome week! I hope you all had an awesome
Christmas! Have a happy new year!
