12/23/13 & 12/28/13

As it says in the scriptures, we are supposed to take upon ourselves the name of Christ at all times.
On p-day last week when we were done playing pool at the college we talked to one of the student staff members at the "rec area." We invited him to church and he said that he would be there. He did not show but the only reason he didnt come this week was because they changed his work schedule and ended up having to go in that Sunday. Just as we did, it is very simple for anyone (not just missionaries) to casually invite people to come to church or whatever it may be. You never know the response that you might get!


We got to talk to Elder Ashcroft Christmas Day. It was such a joy that family could be there to say HI. We are so proud of him. He has grown into a man in just 10 months. We couldn't ask for him to have a better experience. We asked if he was home sick and his response was, "no I don't have time to be, plus I have great ward families here." He got to spend Christmas with a few of these families and there kids. One of Andy's biggest loves is his little cousins and he feels like he has that in these families. His biggest struggle when he first went out was being homesick. It is such a blessing to here that isn't the case anymore. Thank you for all the love, prayers and support for our Elder.
