Hey Mom and Dad, life is good here. I got to stay in Redditch this transfer but I've got a new companion, his name is Elder Christiansen from Salt Lake. He seems like a really cool guy we get along well already so that's really good. Sharon is still preparing really well for her baptism so that's all going awesome. So ya it's all good. Sister Isherwood said she facebooked you the other day as well. The Isherwoods are the bomb they take good care of us as well. We have alot of fun with them. They have us over every Thursday so that's really fun. Oh ya and Gerry's last name is Marsden.
Bear Lake sounds like fun. It's too bad the water is so choppy there but at least you had a getaway huh. I would agree though I would prefer to ski in places where the water is a bit more calm so I can't blame you for that one. At least the boat was holding up for those swells. I miss wakeboarding really bad. We have to do that as soon as I get home before it gets too cold.
It sounds like stuff is pretty busy at the shop lately huh. Better busy than not though right? I liked the cartoon haha that stuff was funny. That was Grandpa Max all over the place. It sounds like most stories we hear other than when he finally decides which one he thinks it is he sticks to his guns lol. Like Chicken Point for example. I also really like that quote you gave me for the life lesson. It's so true though. Especially in missionary work. People hardly ever remember what you teach them the first time but what they can remember is the feelings it brought. In a talk Elder Bednar gave once he talked about how they speak to converts sometimes and most of the time when they ask what it was like to be taught by the missionaries they say that the lessons were the most discombobulated group of scriptures and stories that they had ever heard in their lives, due to missionary faults I'm sure, but the thing they remember is the feeling they had while they heard it so that made them want to learn more. Amazing how that works isn't it.
Tell Devon I'm proud of him for not supporting BYU in the football game. Stay Red. It's the only way to go. That's really cool of Kally to send a t-shirt up for Devon. To be honest I got a bit choked up myself when I saw Blake's initials on the sleeve. I've had a few rough days the last little while but I'm making it through ok. It's all fine. I hope you guys are still going down to have a coke with him on a regular basis.
I didn't know Grace had gone to 8 man ball this year. Is Dr. Steve still coaching? If he is and you see him tell him hi for me ok. I bet those afternoon games are different than usual haha that's weird. That would throw me off that's for sure. Well anyways I better get going now. I love you both. Thank you for everything. Talk to you later. Love, Elder Brice Anderson
