Well Happy DEC. and break out the Christmas Music!!!!
Well thanksgiving was good, we had rice and beans, but we will make up for it today, because we got some sword fish from some guy on the street!! Man it will be good! Glad your thanksgiving was good and such.
A new horse! What the Sam hill is going on there! Ha-ha I bet it was a surprise for her (Nakiah). Gosh, ha-ha That’s cool!
So we had a good week this week. We got Aritdson baptized, so that was the highlight of the week. I will send some pics afterwards, but he is such a boss! Gosh, he is great! So we baptized him and after the baptism, he went teaching with us for the next 3 hours!! He will for sure be a leader here in the church one day ha-ha I feel so privileged to have been able to baptize him. I’m so happy for him ha-ha, it’s cool. I love baptisms, they just help you remember yours so much more.
And we started teaching some other guys yesterday, that’s a funny story. So we are walking and they are like ‘hey teach us’, so we go to their house and start teaching and they stop us in the middle of the lesson and say "Can we still be taught, if we are gang members?" Man, they are members of a pretty big gang here and it was so funny, because we are like ‘Well yaw that’s what we do is teach’ and they are like ‘Yelp, we are going to get along just fine’ :) and then they promptly told of that if anyone tries to rob us, just tell them and they will get all the stuff back for us. Ha-ha, so cool :) and then one of them told all the other gang members to keep an eye out for us and if we need help to help us. Ha-ha Man it was cool, but I think we will baptize them in 3 weeks :) I’m happy, but that’s life for us right now :)
Have a great week and I love you all!!
Love Elder Stratton, from the best mission on earth!!!
