I really enjoyed the video chat as well! It was super cool to see all of your faces again!

Oh my heck that's so much work at the firehouse! It must've gotten cold really fast as well because wasn't the first week of December like 60 degrees? That's crazy. The social classes I've seen so far have been everything... I'm 100% sure though it hasn't been on the severity of how you've seen it. It always humbles me to see someone that has less than I have though which is good. Remembering what we have that others don't motivates us to help others.

It's great to hear that you all had a great Christmas and made goals for this new year! I hope to put down goals on paper some time today... I just have some concepts in my head at this current moment. I'll give you an update next week.

This week I don't know why but I've been thinking a lot about Garrett Jones. For some reason I think he would be an epic missionary. He is super hard working and is motivated very easily. I miss that guy quite a bit. Right now I'm pretty sure he is in the military but that's all I really know.
