Dear Family and Friends,

I had a truly amazing week. I am going to Fairbanks this Wednsday morning. We are flying there. I am still a district leader. I am not excited about it because I have two sets of sisters in my district and the dang zone leaders. I do not know what the heck president was thinking. Ugh ha-ha but o well.

So on Saturday I was blessed to go to the temple with the Flowerdew family. (The Flowerdew's are the first family that Ammon baptized when he got to Alaska). Wow what an experience that was. I was there when they got their endowments and I was there to see them be sealed as a family. I can't tell you all that happened but I was asked to be the witness of the sealing by Brother Flowerdew. Mom and Dad, I have never been so touched by the Spirit in my whole life as I was seeing that family who a year ago got baptized and now they were in the Temple of God being sealed for time and all eternity. I cried like a baby and I will just have to tell you about it over the phone at Christmas. The man who sealed the Flowerdew's was the temple president and he also spoke in the Wasilla stake conference yesterday. He told everyone about me and the Flowerdew's. He used my name and he said he was touched by how he felt the love that I had for the Flowerdew's and the love they had for me. I was not able to be at the stake conference but the mission president told me about it. I can't tell you how I felt because I am still trying to figure it out. But I can tell you that was the best feeling I have ever had in my whole life. If that was just a taste of what heaven is like then I can't wait, I want to go now. That was the best experience of my life so far. I wish I could call you and tell you all about it but could you do me a favor. Mom, can you maybe send them a congratulations gift from you guys to them. That would be so cool. I believe they are friends with me on Facebook and you should be able to get their address if not call the office and you can get it. Thanks.
           Well that was like everything I had to say. So yes I am going to Fairbanks. It is like -30 degrees there right now. That kind of sucks but o well. Lol. So about Grandpa’s money, you can just put it in my account now. It's fine. I have to send some stuff home anyways. I don't have time to email them now so I will tell them now. Grandpa and Jan, thank you so much. I love you both. You are such a huge support for me. Thank you for all you do and continue to do. Merry Christmas.
          Oh, Dad there is a guy up here in Anchorage that knows you and that worked with you. He has requested that I teach him. He is friends with some guy up here. We got a referral from some guy up here yesterday that is a member that knows this guy that knows you. So if you know anything about this let me know. I will be meeting him on Tuesday before I fly out. Keep up the good work.
 Have a good week ya’all. Be safe and remember who you are.
