The Ice Cream Bet

Note from the editor ... I'll have to check with Brandon about the pictures that are not coming through.
Hola mi familia y mis amigos,

 This past week was great.  Most of the people I taught in the spanish program were adults who wanted to learn more about the Gospel.  But in English its about 50/50 adults vs. children.  Most of the children come from parents who were once actively living the Gospel but fell away.  We help them come back and at the same time, help their children be baptized.  The first picture is Hailey and Dave.  They are legit.  Dave was able to baptize his daughter Hailey this past Saturday. A very special day for them.  The other picture is Camden and Brooklyn.  They are as cool as they look.  Camden was baptized and Brooklyn will be one she turns 8.  Check out that bow tie. 
Halloween night we weren't able to go out and teach.  So we decided to use our time to make a little gift for one of our three Bishops.  We didn't know him too well, so this was out ice-breaker gift. 
We're hoping it will help him remember us.  We also made a deal with him that in 4 weeks, he could give us a test of 10 members in his ward and we could tell him the name and a little bit about those members.  (We cover three ward and about 800 members so it'll be challenge).  If we do it, he owes us ice-cream.  If not, then we owe him ice-cream.  We'll see how it goes.  
Love ya'll,
Elder Colton
