Three months!

Hey guys! The three month mark has come already and time is flying by!
Thank you all for the happy Thanksgiving wishes it was a tough time to
be away from everyone but it was still a great time. And it was also
filled with a couple of cool experiences! I was on exchanges with our
zone leader the other day and we weren't having a ton of success and
it was a pretty boring day. But we both decided to change our moods,
and in between appointments decided that we were going to find someone
prepared to teach today! Our very next contact was an amazing lesson
on the restoration, definitely the best one i've taught so far, and he
received it very well, I have hopes that he turns into a promising
investigator, and I also discovered that attitude makes a huge
difference! Staying upbeat and positive is by far the best way to go.
Our transfer also ended and im staying another transfer with elder
Dom! I know that Christmas is just around the corner but it really
doesnt feel like it, but thats probably a good thing so I don't miss
anything too much. My dutch is continuing to grow and i learn new
things about the gospel everyday ive already read the book of mormon
twice and the doctrine and covenants again! :O hahah i'm extremely
grateful ive begun the habit of scripture study out here. I know it's
helped in every aspect of my mission so far. Right after this i have
an appointment to meet a potential investigator to play some
basketball this p day! hahah these people are terrible at everything
except soccer so i anticipate a good time xD And before the end of the
letter this week i'd like to wish my youngest sister Sydney happy
birthday!! I'm so excited for you and hope you have an awesome day
tomorrow Syd!
Love, Elder Carpenter
