Well, how is my most favorite people in the world? I can only imagine that everything is amazing for y'all. I am sure y'all are running around like a chicken with your head cut off. I am pretty excited to help y'all with the landscaping on the house. I am pretty good at service projects. lol What all has to be done on the landscaping? Well everything is pretty much going good here in Artisia. I am way excited for this Saturday. James is getting baptized. It has been a really long road for this guy. He has gone through a lot of missionaries. He told us a few weeks ago that he gives up. He has been trying to prove us wrong for so long but he hasn't been able to. He said since he has stopped trying to prove us wrong everything just seems right. He feels a lot better about what we teach, his doubts have gone away. He is really nervous but very excited . Elder Davis and I are too, lol. There is this other lady that we knocked into. Her name is Rayna, she is so solid. We taught her about Christ church being restored and how we are the only church that has the authority to baptize. We told her that this is the way she can come to know this is true by reading the Book of Mormon. The lesson went so smooth. It was probably one of the best lessons I have ever taught. The spirit was so strong and Rayna was really enjoying it. She kept wanting to know what was next . We went over to teach her tonight, we talked to her about baptism and the importance of it. How that is the first step to have an eternal family. We were able to set a date for her today for baptism on Feb. 4th. I hope it goes through. It is amazing what the Lord puts in your path as you are diligent. In D&C 75:3-5 it talks about the fact that if we go forth without idleness and lift up our voices and be faithful we will be laden with many sheaves upon our backs. I know this to be true. It happened with Rayna and many other times through out my mission. If you have faith, God will provide.
Wow! I can't believe it is 2012 already. I need to revisit a resolution that I had years ago when I was loosing weight. I decided to resolve not to eat candy or drink pop and I want to read all the way through the Bible and the Book of Mormon when I get home. Wish me luck. It sounds like things were a bit boring for New Years. That's ok I went to be at 10:30. So Kacie went to extreme bull riding on New Years. Didn't know that they had that in Tri-Cities. That is crazy what I am hearing about the whole basketball thing in Connell. Sure hope it all gets straightened out. Mom have you been able to get those vitamins for me? About Taylor's buddy. I have asked around to the other boarder patrol guards here in the branch and none of them know him. Does he go to church or has he left training already. We have a branch here but we will be a ward real soon. Well I had better get going. I hope everything is going great for y'all. Love y'all lots. See y'all soon.
Love Elder Eppich
