  Well it is starting to get a little cold.  In the lower 30's in the morning and at night then higher 30's during the day.  But we haven't had any precipitation for the past several days.  I guess that makes it colder because the clouds hold the heat in opposed to when there is no clouds the heat escapes.  I thought that was pretty cool to learn. 
  But this week was great.  We found some new investigators.  And we put two people on date; one for december 24th, and the other for January 14th.  The guy for jan. 14th actually lives in the Long's neighborhood, he is renting a house.  His whole dads side of the family is Mormon. And he went to church as a kid a couple of times but all he remembers is the sacrament.  So we had a good lesson with him on friday.  The young women who is on date for december 24th is part of a part member family.  And she has been coming to church the past several weeks and participating in young womens. We think she is pretty solid for her date.  This sunday because of the big nativity event we went to church at a different building and ward.  We went to the Redondo ward.  It was cool to see some of the marshalese people that we use to bumb into when I was in federal way at church.  I also learned that Libby and Bobby who we worked with my first transfer are planning to get married and baptised.  I still remember when I asked her if she wanted to get baptised the first time I met with her and she kind of looked at me like I was dumb, because both Elder Bunton and Elder Park knew of her situation of not being married and they forgot to fill me in on that.  But that was some really good news I got Sunday. 
  While were on the subject of Elder Bunton. I actually saw him twice this past week.  It was a little surprising and weird.  We were hosting at the nativity event and I saw the Cahans who are part of the Federal Way ward and I hadnt seen them in a while so I said hi.  And sister Cahan told me to look at the door and that she had brought a surprise and sure enough elder Bunton walks in. Its pretty weird to see one of your companions not as a missionary.  It was good to see him and talk with him for a few minutes. 
   That is really sad about Ashton.  I had the opportunity to work with him when I helped out with the basketball camps.  He was in my group one year, I think his eighth grade year.  He was always smiling.  I also knew his sister as well. 
   That is good that West won, sounds pretty exciting! ! I think we are going to play basketball today.  We were planning on playing last week, but I took a three hour nap. Oops. But I am pretty refreshed today so I want to play.  Oh and Brother Long let me know that the singer I was thinking of was Jewel.  He is kind of OCD so he cant stop until he can remember the person or get the answer.  Its kind of funny sometimes.  His birthday is actually today.  Everything is going good, the days are long but the weeks fly by somehow.  Dont worry about the CD's right now.  Drew sent me like 15, which my companion and I are very thankful.  But even though I am on my mission things haven't changed, he sent the package to "Elder Brayden Judy Esmeralda Clark," that got some laughs.  I have helped set up more lights this christmas than I have my whole life.  So far we have helped three people (one of them being the Longs) set up Christmas lights.  It was pretty fun. I hope everyone has a good week! I love you!
