Hey! So this year is the best year yet! Can ya feel it?! Today is the
best day ever! And you are living for it! There is always a brighter
tomorrow in the Atonement of Jesus Christ! There's so much opportunity
to become the best we can be! If you couldn't before then guess what!
The Lord is telling you that you can do it now!(yay E Uchtdorf!) You
can change and this day will make a difference in your week, your
month, year, or your Eternity if you let it! All it takes is a lil bit
of trust in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and accountability to it!
Hello! This was a really interesting week this week. We did a lot of
office running around preparing for next week that should be a little
crazy... Week six of a transfer is always crazy. Well anyways we went
to the Brooklyn bridge last week Monday and that was a blast but cold.
First time I walked on it! Then we got some delicious pizza from a
nice lil classy place called grimaldis. I guess it's brooklyn famous.

I got pulled over twice this week kinda... Today an undercover cop got
on me for double parking and gave me attitude. And then last week in
Brooklyn we got pulled over for turning left from the hours of 4-7...
I didn't see the sign... But he was saying that he was looking to see
if I was a cop and then he pulled me over. And then I told him that we
were missionaries for our church and he was like "do you have
documentation of this?" And I showed him my name tag and he was like
"that's good enough" and gave me back my license! It's super great
being a missionary. :)

Then another day were dropping off things in Brooklyn after an ikea
trip(!) and we had a nice scare... There was this guy in a giant tow
truck that stopped right in front of our car on his right turn and he
turned back out of the window yelling at this one girl! I don't
exactly know what happened but he then got out of the car and full on
sprinted after her! It was crazy! She pulled out a gun! Double handing
it at him! He was trying to dodge back and forth and then she sprayed
him!(turned out to be pepper spray) he got pepper sprayed bad... Nuts.
So now I've seen someone get pepper sprayed right in front of me!

So missionary work has gone alright! We met with the m family
and they are doing really well! Our district is doing really well. I
love them so much. They are the greatest! but I love you guys too!

Elder Clark!

Well we were busy this week! Guess what?!?! I'm in a trio!!!!!! I'm with a stud missionary named Elder T! I came into the mission field with him and he is from tonga! We're helping him to learn English really well so that he can pass his test to go to BYU :) he takes it soon. But it's so fun to have him. He doesn't have a bad bone in his body so it's really fun to have that strength of just pure love! Go Polys :) Elder D is still awesome too :) we are the only missionaries in the office now though so we are probably going to be kept pretty busy! As we have been...

We have moved a lot of people this week. Busy busy busy :) it's really fun though. I love the interaction with so many great missionaries.

We had a really awesome activity with the ward (you might have seen on Facebook...) haha it was really well put together and it went awesome!

We had more than 100 packages come in today... That's craziness... They are bulging off of all the shelves.... Oh the Christmas season.

That's pretty much the latest with us. We are excited to start finding more people to teach!!
