I don't think that I'm going to write you a long email today, because then I won't have a lot to tell you on the phone. I don't know if I told you this last week, but we will be skyping at two from here, so that would be nine over there? I hope that that's okay.
I'm trying to teach myself Spanish...so far it's going okay. We have a lot of Spanish speaking members here in Brandon, and I would like to be able to talk to them when they invite us over for dinner.
So...today is freezing...it's minus 46 degrees. I walked outside without my gloves on and within about twenty seconds my hands were stiff. Sister MP doesn't like it when we go outside without our gloves on, because she's scared we're going to get frostbite. She's so nice and she really takes good care of us. It was so cold today that when we were sitting in the car our hands and faces were steaming. I have never ever seen that before. Also, when you walk outside here you can't breathe in through your mouth, because the cold air makes you cough. And when you breathe in through your nose everything freezes, which is the weirdest feeling ever.
We went to Zone Conference on Friday and stayed in Winnipeg until Saturday morning, but I'll tell you more about that on Skype.
It's official! C is getting baptised! I am soooooo incredibly happy for him. He is the sweetest! He wants to get baptised on the 14th of January, we'll see if we can prepare him on time. We've worked out this plan so it should be fine.
We went to a members house this week and she had a picture of her daughters dog on the fridge, and he looked like Otto!! Only smaller. I really miss Loki and Otto. Can you please send me pictures of them? I would love to see them and show the pictures to my companions.
We went to a bible study group yesterday and it was great. I'll tell you more about it tomorrow though.
People here really love Christmas and they looooooove decorating! Some of the houses look really crazy with all the lights and blow up snowmen etc.
Alrighty, that's enough for today, I'm really excited to see you on the 25th!
I love you lots and I love being a missionary! It is the hardest, but most rewarding work ever!
