Expanding District and Lessons to Learn

Ok for the business. So we have recently have been given a referral to go an stop by and start teaching some people. This made me happy because one of the people we are working with is going to be moving soon and another's mom wont let him get baptized. It is ok. We have a lesson tonight and after it the person wants to play basketball so we will be playing with him and some of the youth. (the lesson is with the kid whose mom wont let him get baptized but he said when he is 18 he is going to anyway) I was so happy to hear that he didn't care how long it took, he still wanted to. So the sisters in my district just had their area split and are no longer companions. They are now training 2 new visa waiters. This means my district just grew. I was so happy to hear this because our district was so small. This last Sunday I had to practice a little love and patience. When we were asked by a leader what the ward could do to help us I told him we would love a list of people who could give us rides on Tuesday because we are not allowed to drive till 6. He then replied "Use the bus. That's what I had to do on my mission." This was my biggest annoyance of my whole mission. I told him thanks and we would look into it and then moved on. It is hard when people ask if they can help but don't ever plan to do it. Oh well. I hope all is well with you. Things are picking up and I am happy. I am starting to like this area and hope I don't get transferred next week.I love you so much!Your Elder Felton

And... More Snow

They are expecting cold weather possibly into April. Unlike the weather people back home, they are pretty accurate here. I I'm not sure what to tell you. The area is kinda slow there is a 95% members here and 90% of the members are active. It is a little difficult finding others but we have 5 people we are working with. I hope you don't mind the short email. I feel bad not having much to talk about. Anyway I got your package and I love it. It was so cool to get Larry the Cable Guy food. I showed the landlords and they didn't get why I thought it was funny and cool. (Utah Mormons are so sheltered) Anyway they are great and nice to us.
I hope all is well. I love you so much. I love you bigger then the beginning of time even unto the pre-earth life! (ooh that sounded good. Am I a stud or what?!) But seriously I do love you more then you could ever know. I have faith that your week will be filled with joy so look for those moments because, faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of thing wherefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen but are TRUE! I know when your heart is open you can have great days!

One Year!

AHHHHHHHHHH NOOOOOOO! Its been a year? I just got here. LOL. OK for real that's kinda what it feels like and it stinks how everyone wants to know how long I have been out. I'm about to say "just got here" because in this area I have just gotten here. This past year has been amazing. I have met so many people that I will always remember. I think the thing that I have learned the most is patience. This is a trait that I think is a hard one to learn. There are a lot of things that I have to do as a DL (District Leader). I am hoping that the first training I have to give on Wed. goes well. I am excited to be close to Ogden again. I have missed it. Not much has happened yet. I'm mostly just getting to know the area. I hope to know more and have more to write about soon.
Much love,
Elder Felton
