A European Mission

Hola mi familia y mis amigos,

Well...after 24 years of dread the day has finally arrived.  My parents are officially empty-nesters. Kevin started college last week.  Oh the tragedy.

Life is still fairly difficult here in Salt Lake but nothing that is getting us down.  We spend all day, everyday (except for 8 hours on Monday when we shop and clean and exercise for a bit) trying to find people to teach. Recently it has felt more like a European mission where the missionaries are lucky to find one people a week who will listen to them than a Utah one.

We still are teaching Sandra Vargas and her daughter, Natalia.  Tonight we have a lesson with them which we are super excited for.  They are reading the Book of Mormon right now and praying to find out if its true.  We found out that Natalia actually met with missionaries on her own just 6 months ago (she had parental permission).  Kind of incredible for a 13 year old.

Despite the obvious lack of success we've had here we are still keeping working hard and trying our best to work smart.  I know Jesus Christ lives.  I know Heavenly Father loves us.

Love ya'll,
-Elder Colton
