hi dad,
I have been doing great here and I am sad to say but I think I will be getting transferred next week, and I don't want to leave the people I have met and found here. It is a great area so we will see. Also how is work going? hopefully you are still finding it and are not having huge problems. I am as busy as a bee. So no worries there. Also this morning I started the Book of Mormon to try and finish it before the end of the year and want to challenge the whole family to do so. So i hope you will make time in your busy day to read a few pages every day. Also 2 funny stories. At the baptism, Alfonso, my 73 year old man didn't think I baptized him deep enough so he yelled out, That was it!?!? DUNK ME DEEPER!! he didn't think i had quite washed all his sins away. It was pretty funny. It also made me quite happy and all the people laugh in the baptism. And the second is my companion has been causing me a lot of grief this past week about small stupid things, so i have been just turning the other cheek and being patient, and today we played soccer, his passion, that is all he thinks about and well my team smoked his team, it was kinda my way of saying I'm not to be walked all over. and I didn't gloat or say anything just left it all on the field and he had plenty of excuses which elder Wagstaff and I laughed about over lunch. We beat him by 6. So yeah it was nice. But yeah i am doing great thanks for all your love and support. i liked the picture of you skiing. Also i am glad you are my dad, and for all the opportunities you gave me. hope you're well and will take the BOM challenge with me. with love your son nathan
