19 December, 2011

"So what did you do for your hump day?" well it is mission tradition to burn a shirt so that's what I did it was an old on with no pocket and most of the buttons were broken so I felt no remorse.

"How are your families doing that you are teaching?" They are doing really well and as they do progressing at their own pace some times I feel like "what's wrong you know it's true and the font only takes an
hour to fill!!!!"

so they are doing? great.

"How is the weather there?" I refer you to the attached photo!!!! it aint nothing like that!!!

"How are you and Elder Smith doing?" we are doing great we are working every day so that we can have a laugh and share the Gospel it is a lot of fun.

"Are you looking forward to Christmas?" yes I am. and the members here are as well. Elder smith and I are in the choir and we will be singing on Christmas day, and every member without fail has come up to
us and asked if we will be having diner that night and we do, but I
still think that it's so cool to see the love that a ward can have for
the missionaries.

"Are you going to be calling or skypeing?" I will be calling president Tilleman has said that is what we will be doing. and I have
derided that I will not be fighting with the lords servants.

well any way things are going really well for us here. I still look
forward to the time I become what the lord has planed for me but I
guess that I am a long term project. any way I see that Thomas was born
with a full head of hair that must have been funny! so what color is
his hair and his eyes?

I think that Diana... sorry Hermana Ziegler will come to see the
blessings that will come to her if she will look to this time with
great hope always looking to learn whatever she can. it will be a
great tool for her I know it. plus she will be in the MTC for
Christmas how cool is that I was there a year ago!!!!! tell here to
try out for the talent show she would be great I know she could think
of something fun to do!!

I love you all and I pray that all is well. Love Elder Ziegler Nos Vemos!!!!

12 December 2011

Hello well I am doing well and YES MOTHER I AM!!!!!!!!!! ( I asked him if he was keeping his apartment clean and other motherly questions)

I still can't believe how fast the time has gone I mean I was looking at the calender at the 1st of Dec. and I was thinking wow November flew and in only a few days till half way I don't want it to end.

well this week has been great we have had so many people actually speak with us
and not yell at us it was wonderful.

The ward is amazing they are so excited to do missionary work and are giving us ideas for finding people. I love it. (hey daddy & mommy) I would like to get a copy of your conversion story. I would like to be able to actually know how you felt as you learned the gospel and how it changed your life.

Well Elder Smith and I have a tree up and for decorations we have pass-along cards it is a true missionary tree. One of the members gave us a whole bunch of presents and they gave us scripture references as a clue to what they are so we are looking them up and putting on our thinking caps.

ESL is not going as of yet because we don't have any one to teach.

so far the work here is doing well we have some investigators that are progressing and seeking for the truth, it is so cool to see how their live have changed so far.

I have been studying about the life of Captain Moroni, seeing how it was and why he was the way he was and so far it has been very interesting because I am trying to see in my mind everything I read.

I have to go now but I want to let you know I love you and pray for you every day.
if there is any one you think I should write send me the address and I will write them asap.

5 December 2011

well Life here has been awesome rather cold the coldest it got as far
as I can remember is about -4 but I had my scarf to keep me warm.

I know it has flown by and tomorrow we will be looking back and thinking
were did 2012 go?

well any way I have been well and I might add I don't mind if I don't get a Christmas package I will be happy with simple cards and maybe some pictures and you can send them to the office and they will get them to me were ever I am.

It is rather weird to think that Diana might be there for longer I think it would be both good for her and a little saddening for her as well but as long as she keeps a
good attitude she will only ever get blessings. She told me about her hiccups it's funny that the elder can imitate them I also think it will be good for her to find out the cause. WE WILL FINALLY FIND THE ANSWER TO THE WESTERGREN HICCUP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

any way right now things are awesome here I am Loving it I am really growing and
learning. I feel that Tomas is around me when ever I need a bit of a kick you could say!

I did get the journal and now I think that I have enough to last my whole mission I now have the one I bought which is very big the one Diana sent me and now aunt lee's. so I don't think I will need a new one for a long time.

Elder Smith and I are out talking to a lot of people and seeing the Lord work in several peoples lives and it is so wonderful.

The members here are awesome they are always giving to the missionaries, one of the
sisters took us shopping for food today. Then we helped a family move
some things after zone conference and we could see the gratitude in
their eyes. That is a wonderful feeling.

Well I have more to write
