Now it's cold. sort of

   Life here in good old Cody Wyoming is Awesome!! This past week the temperature dropped from the 60's to -10!!! With that came about 6-8 inches of snow and ice! After a few days in the negatives it has finally warmed up to about 20 or 30, just warm enough to not wear a coat over my suit coat! Also this week was transfers! Elder Brechter was transferred to Powell and I am now with Elder Horsley! Elder Horsley is from the wonderful place known as American Fork Utah! He is an awesome companion and we have been seeing some great success just in the past few days! Also this week we finally got settled into our Kottage and it is still amazing! Yes it is a Kottage not a cottage, at least that's what the sign says.
  Since we had a baptism last week we spent a lot of our time this week finding new people to teach! It was amazing to see the blessings that come from diligently trying our best to work even when the weather is -10! It has been amazing to see that as we have been doing our best to contact people even in bad weather that we are blessed with people to teach! We spent much of our time going back through some names of former investigators. As we have done that we were able to find a few people that want to start meeting with us again! I love finding new people to talk to about the Gospel!
 I know that truth has been restored and I know that the Book of Mormon is indeed another testament of Jesus Christ! I love being out on a mission and being able to share those truths with others!
This is My Joy Alma 29:9

Here is the picture of my cabin

Well it snowed...again.....kinda....

So last night it rained, than got super cold and snowed a little bit. So now the ground is covered in ice with a thin layer of snow on it! It’s a little difficult to walk in! Also the current temperature here is 10 degrees Fahrenheit or just to sound like its colder, -12 degrees Celsius. The cold just makes walking that much more fun!!!

Also this week has been really crazy! On Monday my companion hurt his knee and had to go to the doctor! As it turns out he has defiantly damaged his MCL and might have to get surgery! Never play soccer on Carpet!! With that fiasco and with it being transfer week. One of the elders in the other companionship here in Cody just finished his mission and is now home! Which means us elders here in Cody are in a trio for a few days until our new companions get here! My companion is being transferred up to Billings and I will be getting a new companion! Despite all the craziness it was still an awesome week! On Saturday we had a Baptism which was awesome! The spirit is always so strong at baptisms! On Sunday was her confirmation which was one of the most powerful experiences I had ever experienced! As I said the blessing for her confirmation I was able to feel that spirit stronger than I ever have! It was a testimony building experience for me! I truly cannot deny the spirit that was present! I know that this is the Gospel of Jesus Christ and that this is his true Church on earth today!
I know that each of us can gain our own personal testimony through reading, studying, and praying about the Book of Mormon! I love you All and I leave this Challenge with all who read this letter to read the Book of Mormon and to pray about it! Than Listen for an answer to that Prayer! If you sincerely do this I know that you will indeed receive an answer! Go ahead test it!!! I love all of you....yes I Love all those who read my letters, and those who do not.

This week was kinda crazy and awesome! So we are now living in a cottage. It is a rather nice arrangement. It has a full kitchen and a really nice heater! The weather is still pretty good, but snow is apparently coming any day! On our bike ride in to town today I felt just the perfect temperature, when we got in to town one of the signs said that it was 46 degrees. I think I'm getting used to the cooler weather. I'm not sure about the cold yet just because it hasn't really come.
So this week was a little crazy especially with Halloween. So on Halloween we had to be home by 6 pm which was weird because I’m used to getting home around 9 pm now. When we got home we decided to make a fire in our firepit outside our cottage. It was awesome! Also as we were sitting around our fire our new landlords came out with some Halloween candy for us and we spent the time just talking with them. It was a nice little relaxation. Also this week another one of our investigators had her baptismal interview and will be getting baptized next week!!! It will be awesome!!! I love teaching people! The spirit is always so strong when we teach. It is amazing to see the effect the spirit can have on people to change their lives for the better!! The spirit always testifies of truth!
