Hey, thanks for keeping me up to date with Grandma. I was at the Chicago Temple the other night and I was praying for her in there. I'm so happy to hear that she was not only ably to get a new heart but is doing so well after the surgery. I'm also glad that she was able to get it before Christmas too.
Well I'm doing good here still and as I said, I was able to go to the Temple with my first companion because a member in Escanaba was going through before his mission and he wanted us to come to that. He was escorted by the previous mission president and I was able to meet him for the first time because he got released a couple days before I came out. I'm heard so much about him and now I know what a great guy he is. He is just full of inspiration. We really had such a blast there and now I just can't believe that it's almost Christmas! Time really does fly by so fast. I hit my six month mark last week which is really crazy because I still feel like I just got here. I really am doing great and am staying warm:) I'm so glad to hear that you guys are all doing well at home and are having a great Christmas so far! I'll talk to you on Saturday for Christmas and wish you a Merry Christams!
