Alright, so this week we should have a baptism. I really hope this one doesn’t fall through.  I always hope they don’t fall through but especailly this one. She has made some really amazing progress and really made some amazing sacrifices to be where she is now.We are also working with some other people. The struggle still is to get them to church.

I will have 6 months on the mission this week, which is kind of scary because it is passing by so quickly. I am enjoying it but I still feel like I have a lot to acomplish in so little time, but I’m excited for the challenges and triumphs to come. 25% done and 75% percent more to go.

And a letter we received from his Mission President:

Dear families of missionaries,

We are sending a belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year note to you, along with some photos of the Christmas Conferences we had the week before Christmas.

We had missionary training, a scriptural Christmas program with amazing musical talent, a delicious lunch and other yummy treats, and a service project.  It was a joy to be with these delightful missionaries.  We always marvel at their great abilities, their many talents, their willingness and diligence in this work, and the goodness of their lives.

We love this sacred season when we remember the birth of our Savior.  Our hearts are filled with gratitude to be able to serve together with your sons and daughters, sharing our testimonies of Jesus Christ and the restoration of His gospel to the earth.

We hope you have had a special Christmas and that you will have a wonderful new year.  We pray constantly for our missionaries and for you, their families.

With love and gratitude,

President and Sister Tanner
