Post-Christmas Week

Christmas week was great. There's not much to tell family because I told it all a couple of days ago over the phone. Elder Kerecman and I did a lot of finding and teaching this week. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day both were a blast, and we did a lot of walking and talking. One man even told us that he was non-dimensional when he was trying to say non-denominational. I wish I could tell about all of the funny tracting experiences I've had on my mission, but I'll save those for later.

Now to the spiritual stuff. We had an awesome experience yesterday tracting. A couple of lessons had fallen through, and we had planned as a backup to tract a certain area, so we went and started knocking on doors. While we were knocking on a door, after we had tracted quite a few doors already, a truck pulled up right in front of the door in the driveway where we were knocking. It's always a little awkward when the owner of the house pulls up when you're at their door, but then you know you get a chance to talk to them. An older lady, and a young couple got out of the truck, and we basically just followed them inside after the mom told us she was an active member and invited us in. Her daughter is a member, but not active at all, but the daughter's husband was not a member. We went inside and talked for a little bit, and then taught the first discussion. The husband had heard the lessons a few times already, and accepted the invitation to be baptized. We were very blessed to be there at the right time to run into them. We were also blessed that the active mom was there, or else we might not have been able to go in and teach. The work is going great here, and this week has been one of the best of my mission. Anyway, I need to get running so everyone have a great week!
