Jan. 2, 2012

Life is so great right now. Things are amazing. Yesterday, the M___ family (we eat dinner there every sunday evening) brought sister M___'s cousin to church. She isn't a member and Sister M___ has been trying to teach her ever since she converted to the church twenty years ago. Her cousin, Nellie, never showed much interest until about a week ago. We introduced ourselves to Nellie and then later, Sister M___ told us that they were up to 4:30 in the morning a few nights ago talking about the gospel. We went to the M___'s early last night and had a beautiful lesson. We started off with "Reflections of Christ" which brought the Spirit so strongly into the lesson and then we taught her the gospel. She is now preparing to be baptized on the fifth of February. It's great because she has such amazing support from the family. That's what one of the most difficult parts about teaching people and helping them get baptized; getting them the support from the ward/branch. Fortunately, she already has that support.

Elder Davis and I are loving every minute of every day. He is doing a great job at taking upon himself more and more responsibilty. Although, I still have a hard time convinving him to start the door and street contacts. He gets pretty nervous doing that. But then I think about my first few months and I was pretty terrified too. I was doing them in Spanish though! But he's improving a lot. It's fun to see the progress. It reminds me so much of the beginning of my mission. It feels so recent and so far away at the same time. It's hard to believe that I was serving in St. George at one point. I'm so grateful I was able to do that. I love being here in Texas though. It's exciting to be able to start off a new year.

I hope y'all had a wonderful new years day. Again, it was so great being able to talk to you all on the phone on Christmas. Thanks also for the gifts you sent. I'll send some more pictures soon.

You are all in my prayers. Just know that I am happy, healthy, and having the greatest time in the world.

Elder Brett
