January's heat and ice

January 27, 2013

Hey there! Sorry I can't send a huge email this week! It is a public holiday today and the library is closed :( so I am emailing at the shopping center and I only have about 25 minutes to get everything done and today is zone leader council and they are starting an hour earlier than usual so that means we only have about 2-3 hours of preparation day today which is lame!

We did have a baptism though, it was on my one year mark! :) her name is Miriam and she is the one from Sierre Leone. She has an awesome story and I think her batptism, even though she wanted it short and simple, was probably my most favorite one so far!

That ice rain stuff sounds crazy! It is just really rainy here lately. Their Australia day got rained out completely.. that really stinks for them. I have written some letters, just need to send them now and I looked ALL over my area for some Kangaroo scrotums to send but they don't have any around here as this area is definitely not a touristy area.

Good job on reading the scriptures! I love those student manuels, that is the best way to study. I am going throught the old testament right now with one and it is really awesome to learn all that stuff from it. Keep it up! :)

I am sooooooooo jealous of you getting to go to Tucano's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We always talk about Tucanos in the flat and how good it is :)

So we have a flash drive that we listen to music and stuff in the car and last week I downloaded every single talk given by Jeffrey R. Holland in general conference since he was called as an apostle. There are 37 talks. I call it the Best of Jeff, haha! anyway.. I gotta get going! sorry! Time is short though :( I'll send letters and a big long email next week I promise!

Love, Elder Thompson
