Happy Birthday to the new District Leader!

Ever feel buried under past mistakes?

Through Christ's atonement we can all be reclaimed.

We've all made mistakes in the past. Even long after the fact we often have the temptation to go back and dig up old garbage. Through the atonement and mercy of Christ we can move beyond the person we were in the past to become the person God intends for us to be.

"...though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." -- Isaiah 1:18

My destroyed shoes, filled with hot glue, so they last a bit longer!

This week was a bit of a slower week, we had a lot of appointments cancel, and the backups we had were all knocking on doors, so we had a lot of knocking this week! We had some good success, but a lot of the week was enduring rather than enjoying, but it was still fun.

We found a nice young family last week, that we taught this week, and have an appointment for this upcoming week! They are really cool, and their cousin Nikita just got baptized Saturday, so they already know a bit, and are excited to learn about it for themselves!

Oh, and I don't know if you realize, but Squash over here is not a vegetable, but it is juice concentrate that you mix with water to make juice! And biscuits of course are cookies. So same name, but not even near the same thing! LOL

We have the family history center in our chapel here, so we actually get to use nicer computers this week! WOOOH!

Afton will be missed, I really enjoyed seeing her each week when we went over to give her the sacrament, she was a funny old lady. Send the Kaltschmidt's my love!

I am getting a new companion so I hope he will enjoy doing the video journals as much as Elder Smith! Elder Smith is moving, but we don't know where yet! We will find out later today. Elder Copper is leaving the district and I will be the District Leader here.

I love you guys, and thanks for the weird kitten card! (Elder Brown turns 20 on Tuesday)

 Filipino food!
