Freezing cold. Iditarod. Sacrifice.

Friends and family!

It was another awesome and freezing week! It was super busy and seemed
to fly by.

To start our investigators are doing awesome! We had an awesome lesson
with Mathew and Andrew on Wednesday and invited them to be baptized
the 25th of March and they accepted! So we will be helping them work
towards that date now! Ryanne is doing great and still on track for
the 18th and we finished all the lessons yesterday! She super awesome
because whenever we teach something she immediately makes the changes.

We had zone meeting this week and it was really good. We talked a lot
of sacrifice. Bruce R McConkie has a really cool talk about it in the
April 1975 general conference. He says, "The law of sacrifice is that
we are willing to sacrifice all that we have for the truth’s sake--our
character and reputation; our honor and applause; our good name among
men; our houses, lands, and families: all things, even our very lives
if need be." And Joseph Smith said, “A religion that does not require
the sacrifice of all things never has power sufficient to produce the
faith necessary [to lead] unto life and salvation.” So without
sacrifice we are nothing. Even the small things make a big difference.

Saturday we had the Iditarod ceremonial start that we got to help out
at. If any of you remember this, I got to help out with this last year
and it was my first Saturday in the mission! It was cool because this
year I got a super cool spot where it wasn't as much Manual labor!
Haha but it was a good time and a lot of fun! And it was freezing the
whole time! I've never loved hand and feet warmers so much in my life!

And that was pretty much the coolest stuff that happened this week!
Thank you for all that you do for me!

Cool fact for the week: I hit 19 months on my birthday! Double whammy

Love, Elder Tyler John Fawson
