Merry Christmas everyone :)
It is freezing. I bought some sweet new 1980's ear-muff things, and they work great, i endorse them to all who get cold ears in the winter.
Albany is great. We had our branch christmas party this saturday, and elder grover and i played a "Christmas Medley" with elder grover on the saxophone and me on the piano. It was so much fun, we had a couple investigators there, and they loved it. everyone wanted an encore after we played it. it was a blast, we recorded a video of it, so i will try and get that emailed this month for christmas.
On my mission--- i have noticed a difference of peoples' personalities during the holidays. it seems like now that it's Christmas... everyone is holding doors for everyone, and they are more receptive to us. we still of course get the occasional people who seem to have a break down if we even mention the name Joseph Smith. it's hilarious... sometimes if we even say Joseph Smith- they just turn off and start twitching or even run away. it's hilarious.
anyways... during this month of our savior's birth, it's awesome because we get to carol! I am blessed to have a companion that can sing parts so it has been fun stopping random people in downtown albany and singing silent night. it's awesome.
The Gospel is TRUE.
Everyone read 3 Nephi 17 it's my favorite right now :)
i love you guys :)
