Good times

Elder SnowI’m having a lot of fun this transfer… its mostly because of Elder McGrath… he is great. He has been a real support.

[The following is a report we received from Elder McGrath–Aaron didn’t tell us much this week]:

“Elder Snow and I just found out that we’re going to be together for another change, so I guess it’ll be a “gringo” (as they say to North Americans here) Christmas! We’re really excited. We already bought a big lighted tree and have made the necessary changes to adjust to the holiday season. All Christmas music. We’ve been working on many ideas we have for the ward and work here that we are just starting to put into practice. It was really special the other day because Elder Snow got to witness one of his converts from one of his previous areas (I’m sure he’s told you that we share chapels with Patzite) give his very first priesthood blessing to his wife, whom he also baptized. It was awesome because first he got to teach him how to do it and then he got to witness it. I’m sure that they are going to get sealed next year! What an incredible mission experience and I’m glad I was able to share it with him! I was also able to accompany him on his first temple trip. Due to unfortunate transfers at just the wrong time, he hadn’t been able to go yet! It was only my second time so we both were really happy. The trip to Subway topped it all off! I hope you and the family that’s left there in Henderson enjoy this season of preparing for the holidays! I’m sure my family feels as you do with two kids away from home seeing as my brother left on his mission to Montana about 3 weeks ago. Don’t worry we’re going to come home and fill our respective spaces in just a small matter of time!”

[Thank you Elder McGrath–we love you and we haven’t even met you!–I think Aaron is feeling a bit overwhelmed these days–we’re grateful you took the time to help give us a good report!]

We went to the temple this week! It was amazing! What a beautiful temple... easily one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. The inside is much better than the outside.

We had a surprise baptism. A little boy's dad gave him permission to get baptized, and so his member mom called us up to teach him and baptize real quick. It went well... Check out the huge family show up... all of these guys are in just one family last name. So that is pretty cool.
