HAPPY HOLIDAYS !!!!!!!!!!!! I had a great Thanksgiving but I did miss the fam!

We got to watch a movie that day so we watched "The Christmas Carol" (the one with Jim Carrey). I ate way too much and was miserable the rest of the night. HAHAHHA ! But it was worth it!

Elder Chaput and I got football cleats at Ross when we were down for a meeting in Pueblo earlier that week. It was fun getting some cleats again. They were only 20 bucks (originally 85).

So Thanksgiving morning we were set and ready to play some football. WOO WEE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was awesome ! My left knee was kind of bothering me from wrestling with some other missionaries a few days earlier but Elder Chaput taped it up for me and I was good.

It was a good turn out and we had two games going on. I played quarterback just about the entire time, and I must say ... I had some sweet passes (and on the run too ! There should have been some NFL scouts there) HAHAHHAAA !!! Ricky came too and had a great time. He is moving back to the Springs but he is excited about being in a "singles branch."

We are having trouble "finding" in our district and we needed some motivation. So what better to do then to have Elder Matt Foley 'Motivational Speaker" come and talk to our district ! HAHAHA !!! I told our district that we have someone special here to talk to us today about baptism and that he is used to a bigger crowd, so make him feel welcome. I proceeded to go out of the room and I lowered my glasses and put on this tiny suit jacket and came back in as "Elder Matt Foley." He has been on his mission for 14 years, so he has experience. HAHHAHAHAHAHAHAA !!! It was great !

I got my contacts Maa !!! Thank you so much ! And I got the big ol' package from the Larsens and Tolleys !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is so AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A present for each day from Thanksgiving until Christmas !!! And each one has a scripture on it and after reading it we try to guess what it is !!!! I LOVE IT !!!! Happy to hear everyone had a great Thanksgiving !!!! Thank you for your prayers and support!

I love you all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh I almost forgot !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We get to go hear Elder Richard G. Scott talk to us on the 10th of December !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOO WEE !!!!!!!!!!!!! BOOMSHOT !!!!!!!!

Hello everyone !!!!!!!!!!!!! It was a great week !

Yesterday we had two young men who are getting ready to leave for there missions come out with us and we split up and went knocking doors. I took a young man with me who just came home early from the MTC, I really wanted him to commit to get back out and his mom said she is very grateful for our efforts. All together we taught 5 lessons !!!!!!!!!! The one young man and I committed this guy to baptism and he accepted. It was really cool cause the young man said coming out with me made him very motivated !!! HA-LLE-LU-JAH !!!!!!!!!!!!!! hahaha he is going to the San Jose CA (spanish) mission. The other is going to the San Fransisco/Oakland mission. A whole new world for this kid. HAHAHA !!!

Things are great, thank you all for your support and prayers !
LOVE YOU ALL !!!!!!!!

HAHAHA !!! I can just hear the Bubbas saying all those things! I am glad to hear little Bkua is all better.

We have been invited to a families house for Thanksgiving. The Newitt family. They are a great family with like 9 kids (all girls and 1 boy). Brother Newitt is a really funny guy so we are happy to be there that day.

It's been a tough week but we keep on trucking! Elder Chaput and I are committed to start working out consistently so that we feel better and are healthy. Don't have a lot to say this week, I love and miss you all !!!!

I need contacts ASAP ! And that electric razor doesn't work very well but it might need new blades... not sure.

Thank you for everything Maa, love you so much. By the way I got the letters from the Mia maids and they were so cute. Little Jordie really touched my heart, she really loves you a lot Maa. Tell her how grateful I was for her letter and that I love her.

Ty and Elder Chaput

Ricky Prince's Baptism


Things are going great !!! Elder Scott Chaput (Shap-you) is an awesome companion !!! He has that "greenie fire!" It is amazing ! He is 25 yrs old, he actually served in this mission a few transfers a couple years back. But he had to leave for health reasons but now he's back. He is a very cocky guy, but he is also very funny and we get along great ! He fought MMA professionally for the past 5 yrs or so which is really great ! He is from Sedro-Whooley Washington. He is 6 ft 5 inches and 240 lbs. HAHA He's a big guy and he loves this area. I look forward to the miracles we will see together.

Ricky was confirmed yesterday and received the gift of the Holy Ghost. I had the honor of doing so. Being DL (district leader) is a great opportunity to serve others, we have a great district and I am grateful.

We are getting snow off and on. It is pretty cool. Some kind of bad news is that Johnaley is not coming back from North Carolina ! But she still knows the church is true and wants us to send her some missionaries where she is so she can be baptized ! So that is AWESOME !!!!

I love the ward here so much and it is going to be really, really tough to have to leave someday. But I don't need to think about that now.

I love you all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

p.s. Hey Elder Lawrence ! I heard its your birthday on Saturday ? ... HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROTHER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love you !!!!!!!!! Finish strong my man !!!!!!! HERMANOS EN BRACOS !!!! :]
