December 1 letters

Daniel's first paragraph was a response to the following question: I received the mission newsletter and saw that you had another baptism this week in your new area, which is a really fun start with your new companion.  I had a question, though.  The newsletter said that you and Elder Stubbs had one family and one person baptized.  I thought the couple got baptized?

One of the couple was already a member so that is why that was the way it was. It's just as good as both of them, though, because she was basically completely inactive and now they're doing great. The retention here in Mozambique really is unreal because of the family focus. 

The big meal we had on Thanksgiving was really awesome. We had a really good chicken, potato, and pork meal. We also made some good dessert so it was really nice. 

This week was really awesome. Last week we took a family to a family night at a richer person's house. Extremely poor to fairly wealthy. The kids of the extremely poor family just about had there minds blown by the food and cake and such. It was a really cool experience. 

This transfer is looking to be an insanely crazy transfer. We are having tons of success and we are just running around doing stuff all the time. It is absolutely insane and we are just super busy. It's really hard to fit it all in. We have so many lessons and things that we don't know what to do with them all. It's difficult but a really awesome challenge for us. This week was really awesome. We have many progressing families and lots of other good stuff going on. 

Also, Elder Dustin and I go really crazy on lunch. We make so many really good meals. We don't cut corners. This week we made some good burritos, fried chicken, stir fry, and a bunch of other good stuff with cooked dessert and the whole bit. Also I can make some killer rice so it is just really awesome. The cooking tools that we have available really suck but we make the best out of it. Also, beef is a lot harder to get for cheap up here in the north. Either way I really love our companionship. Things are going great and it is just an awesome time.

Soccer last week was really fun, and I'm excited to play again today.  We're going to that again right now. Thank you so much for all the good information and email. Love you so much.

To Colin: What an awesome week. It was like the best week I've ever had on my mission as well so just all around awesome.
