I think this is his new companion.
Luckily that is the last time that I have to say that over email! haha
Osky is going really well right now, on Thursday we went to transfer meeting to pick up the new elder that will be serving with me. Elder Mattoon is his name, who is from Dallas, Texas. Which is super cool and way different that most people out here in the Iowa Des Moines mission. He also does sign language, so we might end up teaching some deaf people if we can find any, which is really cool. We are going to have a great time serving together for the 2 transfers that I have left:)
The last few days here in Osky have been so cold, it got down to like 9 degrees the other day, I was really hoping that this winter wasn’t going to be as bad, since I’ve already been in one before. But that is not the case! O well I am thankful for a truck! So what are the plans for Thanksgiving this year? We will most likely be at a member’s house, because we are supposed to bring a pumpkin pie. I don’t really know how to make a pumpkin pie, so I found one at Wal-Mart for like 3 bucks.. haha don’t tell anyone okay:) I'll just play like I made it..haha But this Thanksgiving should be really fun, other than a lot of people are going to be busy and out of town. We either will stay really busy or we will bored.
Conner looked like he had an awesome birthday! Just remember to tell him to be careful with the knife.. ! Bret made a tool box! nice job dude! So did Kahlen get his little note? and did grandma get her card? hopefully:) I also got the package that you sent, but I haven’t opened it just yet because we went straight to email, but I’m sure it’s awesome!
N..... is doing super well right now and moved out of his girlfriend’s place this past week.. yes!!! he’s really excited for his baptism coming up on Dec. 7th and he’s super ready for it. The other day we were teaching a friend of his and he testified to him about the Book of Mormon! I love it when investigators do that:) J.... is also on board for Dec. 7th, we just have to get him interviewed this Saturday and he should be ready. I just hope that we don’t have any surprises come up in the next two weeks!
Everyone else that we are teaching just has to live a few more commandments and learn a bit more, and hopefully that will be ready for baptism:) It’s all in the Lords hands and what better hands to leave them in.
I am so grateful for all of you and your support throughout my mission, it truly has lifted me and strengthened me when times are down! I could go on and on about how grateful I am for you guys and everything, but it would take more time than I have! THANK YOU!!!!!
LOVE ELDER KIRTON!!!
I will probably talk to you this week, if Nicole’s call gets here:)
