Only a few more of these letters left.
This past was interesting. Shocker of the world: Layton and Salt Lake are about as different as two places can possible be in the same state. In Layton, the area was like Johns Creek (middle class America). But here it is so different and I love it. The diversity is incredible. During a ward Christmas party this past week I met dozens of people from around the world. And many of the people in these wards struggle financially but are so happy. The Bishop had arranged with another ward to donate hundreds of coats and when the ward saw them, they were overjoyed.
Most of our days are filled with visiting people and sharing a Christmas message with them about Christ and His birth. One of my favorite parts of the message is this video: http://www.mormonchannel.org/bible-videos?v=2893093383001
One of the highlights from this past week: meeting a hispanic guy named Bob Diaz. He was such a happy person and I loved him, but it just cracked me up that his name was Bob Diaz.
