Doctrine and Covenants 133: 26  And they who are in the north countries shall come in remembrance before the Lord; and their prophets shall hear his voice, and shall no longer stay themselves; and they shall smite the rocks, and the ice shall flow down at their presence
Hello hello! That verse just pumps me up every time I read it! So cool!
SOOOO...I have a new companion. His name is Elder Zenger. He is from...hmm...probably Utah...I think.  It's just safe to assume he's from there.  Wait - he just told me he's from Layton, Utah.  Okay yeah awesome haha!  He is so funny!  We get along really well.  I'm really gonna enjoy serving with him.  He is so goofy - I love it!  This morning he woke up, went over to my bed and farted on it.  Then went back to bed...I was half asleep so I didn't know if i was still dreaming or not...I should probably ask him why he did that.  Actually probably not!  hahahahaa
We baptized Tracey on Saturday and it went so well.  And yesterday he was confirmed a member of the church and was interviewed to receive the Aaronic priesthood next Sunday. HOLY COW!  It is so great to see a family that was so far away from happiness come unto Christ and actually be happy.  The Trimms are so great!
Well I need to make this email short - we have a busy P Day ahead of us.  I love all of you and enjoy your emails and support.  Love Ya!

"You have to make your plans and plan your makes...I don't know what that means but ya gotta do it!" - President Wirthlin

Hello hello

"Sister Musser...why do you need to hold the priesthood when you can hold HIM every night?"
President Wirthlin just makes this mission so awesome.  This week was so great! We had a couple baptisms and found a lot of new potential! I will start with Wednesday.
Wednesday. We had district meeting down in Potsdam and our district leader Elder Child and his companion wanted to exchange afterwords. So I went to Malone with Elder Adam. He has been out about six months and the past 4 weeks he has had to stay inside due to his huge headaches. BUT they have the best apartment in the whole mission. They have a huge 60 inch flat screen in their living room with a nice fireplace, washer/dryer, keyboard, another TV in their bedroom, basketball hoop, etc.... So spoiled. So we had to stay in the whole exchange..(not complaining) haha. And while we were their Elder Adam got the word from President Wirthlin that he is going home on crazy day.
Thursday. I woke up with a dang cold. So that whole day we stayed inside in Massena. Not too bad.
Friday. I don't even remember. Still sick.
Saturday. Day of Debbie's baptism:) Wake up and NOT SICK THANK GANDHI!  Haha probably cause I drank a glass full of  cough syrup before I went to bed.  BUT so the day goes on and around 5:00 we head to Potsdam and get ready for the baptism. So I am baptizing Mary Beth...and let me tell ya, she is not the smallest girl in Massena.  She is the other Elder's investigator but she wanted me to baptize her.  So I dunk her and I am so happy that she didn't faint like she said she would.  Because I would've died.  No joke...Tender mercies.  And Debbie is scared of water too and Elder Jepsen baptized her and said her last name wrong so he had to do it again haha.  I think she's even more terrified of water now.  No, but he did a great job.  It was such a good day.  So I had the blessing of confirming her the next day.  I felt the spirit so strong it almost put me to tears.  I can't really describe the way I felt.

I can't wait to see the rest of the Trimms get baptized later this month. They are so ready. I love them so much!
Well that was my hectic week! Thank you all for the support. I love you all:)))
Love, Elder Hunter Neus
