December 17, 2012


This week has been very different.  We spent a lot of time splitting wood. As we split wood at the part-member less-active family's home the mom asked us if we wanted chicken and we said yes.  She told us to take the grey rooster.  She tossed it in a cage and put it in the bed of the truck!  And we drove off with a live chicken in the back!  Elder Chavez had a lot of fun butchering and cleaning it.  But now we have a bunch of chicken in the freezer.

Elder Chavez also made a bunch of Peruvian food called lomo sartado which was very good but different than I normally like.  It was way good!

We have been working hard and trying really hard to not just teach and convert investigators but to teach and convert members as well. With some it is really working and it will be something I think most elders on the rez will doing from here on in.  It is such a blessing and a step forward.

We are getting a senior couple sometime which will truly help.  They do so much good and are such a blessing to the work and the elders.

We had a bunch of snow this week and it has been pretty cold.  I actually started wearing my over coat.  The good thing about the snow is that its not so dusty any more but some of the bad things are that we get mud all over us and our truck. A lot of it!

It has been a good week with much in work and service for the people.  Its crazy to think I will have been out for six months on Thursday.  Time passes differently when you are anxiously engaged in a good cause   And this is the best cause any of us can be a part of.

Merry Christmas.

Elder Alex Huff
