Looking Forward!

Hello Fellow Clothe-Stainers,

Can you believe my last email was last year? Neither can I. It has been a great week. We spent our New Year's Eve fondueing at an awesome member's house. Then we had to go home at 7:00pm. :( It was fun while it lasted!   I went to bed at 10:30pm like it was just another day. Elder Taylor woke up due to fireworks and bangs (gunshots?) and stuff, but I didn't. :)

We have two new investigators this week! Heather and Mason, who's husband/dad is a returning member. Hmm, this kind of sounds like Paul and Precious- let's hope it turns out the same way! They loved our mini lesson on the Plan of Salvation. For a while it was just "meh" because we changed our plans last minute, but eventually there were tears. In a good way. Go Spirit! We are excited to teach them. 
We also finally had a lesson with Nacho! Yes, that is his name. His wife is less-active, and had previously met with missionaries before. His desire to change and become a better person is what really has him. He showed good understanding, too, like how the priesthood is necessary in Christ's church and such. I don't think there were tears, but we could tell he liked it. We will see him when he gets back from Hawaii.
We had other lessons and such, but I think those were the best of the week. People came to church, the spirit was felt, all is well. :)
Lately we have been leaving members a lesson about Patience, and we have had a great response.  So, I encourage you, my fellow readers, to learn to be more patient in life. With God, with others, and with yourself. One of my new favorite scriptures is in Romans 5:3-5, because it is true. Sometimes it's hard to glory in tribulations, but with an eternal and enduring attitude, all can be made right. So be PATIENT! 
Everyone should be back from holiday vacations now, so we are expecting this week to be a big teaching week! Hoping for the best! And again, thanks to everyone that sent me Christmas gifts/cards. I love 'em!!!!!!!
Keep Calm and
Do Missionary Work!
 Elder Summerhays
Romans 3-5
And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience and patience, experience; and experience, hope:
And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hears by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us
