Working on my skills.
 We had an activity today where all of the missionaries in the mission met at the mission offices to play soccer and eat hot dogs.  It was a lot of fun but we did have to wake up at 5:30 today so that part not so much.  We are also going to be doing a lot more activities with the ward to try and get the members animated to work and to help the youth start coming to more activities.  The majority of the ward are over 50 so they sometimes forget that the activities have to be fun for the younger members as well.

E***a is fine but a little hard to get a hold of these last two weeks with the holidays.  She should be baptized this month so that will be nice.  We are helping her understand right now how the gospel helps increase the unity in the family.

I am fine, a little tired but fine. I am going to start exercising again.  I have put on weight since October in my last area and I want to get rid of it.  I also may or may not feel really sluggish all day and want to get rid of that also, maybe...

Ice cream.  Great treat!

Well, the Christmas dinner was really good.  A lot of missionaries came over.  For Christmas we had the ham, which I glazed with butter, syrup, and honey. yum!  We also had scalloped potatoes, stuffing balls, tuna pasta, rice krispies, and a triple chocolate cheesecake.  So it was delicious and very unhealthy, perfect for the Navidad. 

Many are so stuck in their ways that it is an uphill battle at times to help them see why they aren't happy.  It is odd when you can see how much their own disobedience is hurting them but they cannot seem to see it.    We have received a few references and we will be going back to see some of them tomorrow.  Pray for opportunities to help others and also pray so that I can find people to help.  Thanks for all of your prayers. 


  1. Pray for Elder Bandy that he can find those that are struggling and need God's hand.

  2. Keep up the good work Elder Bandy! I am a fellow student with your mom (Tammy). We are all proud and supportive of your williness to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. I will be adding you to my prays. The Lord will place people in your mission who want to hear what you have to say.
