December 9th, 2013

Hey family,

This year we decorated the apartment a little bit for Christmas, we have some lights we put in the front of the balcony and we just leave them on. Elder Averett got a small Christmas tree and put it on our eating table. It's a small Christmas tree though, it's like 1/2 a foot, but it does the job.  Unfortunatly there's no choir this year in our ward.  Music is just not as good here in Calgary as it is in Montreal, but there was a stake choir thing the past week at the stake center which was nice. We also had our ward christmas party this past week and there was a lot of members bringing their  friends which was nice because we got to meet a lot of people. The ward has improved quite a bit with their member misionary work.   Oh and we picked up a new investigator this week, his name is Kelsey and we found him through a less active member. He told us that whenever we visit he feels something so we invited him to learn about the gospel and he accepted and came to church and he loved it. We'll probably invite him to be baptised the next lesson because he's so prepared. Right now it looks like transfers are the 1st of January and it looks like my time in the Bow Valley ward is coming to an end. It's been fun though and seeing the people that I've met grow in the gospel.  What's really been fun is seeing the ward's faith in missionary work grow as well because there are so many people that the members are working with.  We're probably going to pick up a couple new investigators this week.  One of them is Amier and he came to church once but the Spanish Sisters in the north stake have been teaching him and he doesn't even speak Spanish.  When we followed up with them it had been about 1 month later and he hadn't been to church since.  So then I was a tad frustrated because they've been teaching him for a month and never came to church.  We'll probably start teaching him this week and get him to church the coming Sunday.  Seems like the work is really starting to pick up again and I'll probably be leaving when everything happens but oh well!  Oh and for the Skype call I'll probably call you a couple days before and set it up for Christmas Day. It will probably be a skype call because that will be a lot better and President doesn't give time limits on skype calls because they cost nothing.
Well that's about it that happened for this week.

Love you guys,
Elder Gagnon
