Elliot's December 27 email

Here's the latest email from Elliot.


It was awesome to talk to you all on Christmas too. It was nice to hear all of your voices and to know you all are doing good. I hope you have a great New Years too!

This past week was a bit slower work-wise with having a cold and Christmas and everything, but it was still great. Yesterday especially was awesome. We taught like 5 lessons and really had a great time at church and everything. We have investigators (who can't get baptized yet because of issues of getting married) that go to church every Sunday who are just really solid and will definitely be great members of the branch when they get everything straight. In Gospel Principles class Yolanda (the wife) was sitting there studying super hard the Gospel Principles book, reading and writing down every scripture and asking questions. She reads the Book of Mormon very often and writes down questions about anything she comes across that she has questions about so she can ask us when we come over. Then during the Priesthood meeting Jose (the son) walks in and says "We need someone to come to Primary." The person conducting says "Okay, I'll be there in a minute," to which he says, "no, now." Everyone laughed and joked around about how he's a future bishop. So me and Elder Whipple went to the Primary and talked about why missions are important and we stayed for a minute to just listen in. Our investigators' children were answering all of the questions and participating and it was great. Jose told me after church that he can't wait to get baptized. I can't wait either. They're so awesome and mean so much to me.

Anyway, I'm feeling just about 100% better after being sick and am gonna go play basketball again soon, but I love you all and miss you and appreciate everything you do for me!
