Hello, everyone. If you've been watching the news, you are probably aware of a momentous day coming up. It's huge. More than huge. It will shape the future of the United States of America in particular, but also in a very real way it will affect all of the free world in ways not yet imagined. That's right, you guessed it: my birthday is on its way. Buckle up!
Of course, there's no time to pay attention to that, because there is a new elder in town. Elder Haviland has arrived, and he's awesome. We're pretty similar, so that aids in just about every aspect of missionary work. He's on fire and ready to get some work done. Which is good, because there are doors to be knocked on, especially at Halloween time. Okay, we didn't really go tracting on Halloween night, we ate at a member's house and then went home to plan for the week.
Other than that, we've been knocking. And knocking. And knocking. And I've felt Heavenly Father support us as we've done so. He is real, He is doing His work, He is testing our faith, and He loves us.
Have an awesome week!

Here's a portion of his family email:
Happy Halloween. Well, kind of. I think I wished you one last time. But still. I am in a new library today, one that I can't send pictures in, but next week I will give you picture proof that I had a successful Halloween. Or maybe a successful week after Halloween, when candy is 80% off. Yea!
You are probably all very curious about Elder Haviland. He is awesome. We are pretty similar, we're getting along really well, and his Chinese is great, so that's all wonderful and dandy. The no investigators part is kind of a downer, but he has great spirits about it all, and we're confident that we'll find someone soon.
I would also like to address another serious matter. I heard from my zone leaders that Disney bought Star Wars!! Is that true?!? I'm sorry, but for me, in terms of importance that ranks up right there with the election. Okay, maybe the election isn't THAT important. Alright, just kidding. (I'm actually wearing a red tie today and tomorrow.)
