So it has been another busy week here in Juneau Alaska. We have been working hard to prepare for transfers. Things are going great in the work here is going really well. This Christmas in the Alaska Anchorage mission we are trying to have every companionship have a baptism for the month of December so we have been working hard to try and do that. The weather here has been awesome it’s been really warm ranging from about 40 to 50°
So obviously the big news for this week is that we got our transfer calls on Friday. I found out that I will be headed to Fairbanks for this winter. And it will most likely be my last area. I am super excited to head up north because I have never been up there. I feel blessed because in my mission I’ve been able to see lots of cool areas and to serve and do some unique things. Up in Fairbanks I will be able to see the northern lights quite often and the weather there I have heard that it reaches below -50°
Where I will be living will be in a small town called North Pole just outside of Fairbanks I’m super excited because it is like the Christmas capital of the world. The whole town is themed after Christmas the light poles look like candy canes and Santa has a workshop up there and they even have reindeer. So Christmas this year should be exciting. I have heard lots of awesome things about Fairbanks and super excited to be going up there my next companion will be Elder birth and I have only heard good things about him I have never met him but I’m excited too.
Things have been really awesome for me lately and I am excited for the work and to finish my mission Strong I have 4 1/2 months left and that blows my mind.
So last week we had MLC. It was an awesome meeting we were introduced to the new smart phone so that we will be having and they have been a blessing is awesome because now we have Internet wherever we go and we can help people and share the gospel whenever we need to not just when we’re at the churches. We also learned a lot of new things on how the mission is trying to change the culture and how we are trying to improve on how we can better find teach and baptize. It was an awesome meeting but I was super tired because we flew down there we’re there for the meeting for eight hours and then we turned around and flew back by the time we got back to Juneau we were pooped.
Well that is all I have for this week I hope that you all have an amazing week and remember the true meaning of Christmas and focus on how you can share the light of the world with others.
