Bow Now Brown Cow

Hello everyone!

I hope you all are enjoying your holiday season! It's been warming up a bit here-- as high as 45! I never thought I would consider 32 as nice, warm weather, but a dip into the -15 range will change your mind really quick, I guess.

So I'm getting transferred-- don't know where to yet-- I'll find that out on Thursday morning at the transfer meeting. I knew I would get transferred from the start of this transfer because starting to love your area and the people in it is the first sign that you'll be transferred. I've really come to love the people in the Crestmoor Ward, and I hope to see them again. It hurts to leave them-- there are some really nice families, and I really don't want to give up our two solid investigators.

But, as far as transfers go, I'm hoping for Grand Junction since I know so many ward members from there. Gotta learn this Colorado geography!

We had a great Christmas devotional last Thursday-- I really love our President and his wife-- they really do care for us-- they and the Assistants and Office Staff spent a long time knitting over 200 dark wool beanies by hand for every single missionary! It was touching to see all the work they put in for us!

I have been reading Jefferey R. Holland's talk "Safety for the Soul" from last General Conference a lot. His testimony is really powerful. We showed it to an investigator recently, and we're including it as lots of our discussions about the Book of Mormon.

I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and that this Church is true. I love it with all my heart, and I can't wait to tell people about it in a new area.

May God bless you all and have a wonderful Christmas!

--Elder Watkins
