Hey MOM.

Hows it going, hows the weather in utah, it was 70 degrees for two days in a row last week, but not i hear that on tuesday the high is going to be 7 degrees and the low is 20 below. So yeah that is going to be absolutely miserable and I will definately be rocking the thermal G's. SO LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MY CRAZY WEEK. So this last week was incredibly tough not gonna lie. So let me just tell you what happened. ok. well I will actually start with the semi good news so it doesn't sound all bad. So we taught a former investigator and he has been struggling with a wife that has left him and now they are getting a divorce. But from that experience it really made him turn to his Heavenly Father. We have helped him a lot, and we've been sharing scriptures with him and the plan of salvation. he has also been reading Jesus the Christ which he loves. So we had a lesson with him and we were just talking about all this stuff, and he says yeah i know that this stuff is definately true and inspired. and so we were asking him if he knows the bom is true and if Joseph Smith was a true prophet and he said yes to all of them. So we were on exchanges that day. And our district leader, asked the guy to get baptized, and he said not yet, i dont know enough, that will be in the future if it happens. So that was kind of a bummer, but we will continue to pray and hope that he sees the importance of it. Also about Brandy and that, we changed the date to the 12th of February, but now we don't even know if that is going to work. So her husband met with the bishop and everything went good and fine, and the bishop told us that there is no reason that he should be able to receive the priesthood, and we were like yes, sweet!. But he also said that when he stopped going to church his last ward didn't make a note of Aaron ever receiving the priesthood. But aaron remembers passing the sacrament a couple of times before they stopped going to church. So now Aaron has to look all around for a certificate that he got that says if he even has the preisthood or not. So if he can't find it then he will have to get the priesthood first and then become a priest which the bishop said might take until march. Which would be terrible because transfers are on February 14th, so we don't even know if we will be here or not. So yeah that was my pretty crappy week. But there are also good things that come out of it. Anyways, I gotta get going, don't be worried about me I'm still doing great, I still love the mission, and still love this gospel. And I love you and the fam, have a great week! LOVE ELDER GNEHM
