Lancaster, PA - December 19, 2016

I can't believe Christmas is in 6 days. For Christmas we have a Christmas breakfast before church with a member and Grandma and grandpa are having the family over at 1:30 p.m.. We still drive during the snow here, but it depends how bad it is. This is the apartment in Lititz. I was on exchanges with a brand new missionary. It was super fun. I hope I train.

I will Skype you guys at 3 pm your time. Can't wait to see you! If I change my mind I'll just tell grandpa, so convenient right? Come to think of it I need to leave some stuff with them to give to you guys when you come so I don't need to mail it, like my ukulele. President came out with some rules the area presidency want us to follow more strictly and that means no more ukulele

When you make people feel uplifted around you they will uplift you too.

I have to tell you a story I just remembered. So I woke up to someone banging on our door this last week at 6:25 in the morning. We open the door and our neighbor and our other neighbor are freaking out. In the apartment across us there is a lady standing over a body on the ground. She was freaking out and saying no don't die! Then she said does anyone know CPR?! I have to say I earned my eagle scout award that day. I did the chest compressions and actually a couple breaths.... super gross, but I couldn't feel a pulse or hear him breathing at all. I did this for a couple of minutes and then the police and people got there. We later found out that he actually died from a drug overdose and was most likely already dead. Maybe I should be an EMT.

The hot chocolate thing was awesome. The ward donated too much. People really liked it and we got 13 potential people to see. We're doing it again on Wednesday. This lady came up and assaulted me haha it was super funny afterward though because the other elders were like what just happened. She grabbed my arm and hand and put some money in it and said keep it.... We went and bought fries at 5 guys with the money . Then I told the worker who was solo that night I thought it was 5 guys not 1 guy and he was like I know right.
