19 December 2016 - Week 60! Merry Christmas!!!

Good week! We opened our new Smithville branch building this week. The weather was terrible! Super cold and icy. And still 85 people showed up! The talks were awesome, the lessons were great and we had a huge potluck afterword -  a little kid even threw up and everything was just awesome! Great first week! This branch is awesome. We didn't have a single investigator come, which was super annoying!! But hopefully the weather will be better and some more people will come out. The Amory sisters are having there baptism coming up.. I'm super exited for what this week has in store. I'm exited to talk with the fam!!!!! Thank you to all who have sent me Christmas stuff!! You guys are the best!!!!! Your missionary -Elder John M. Gilbert

Merry Christmas Y'all - we love and thank you!!!

12 December 2016 - Week 59

Good week! So it was kind of a weird week. We did a lot of service this week. We hung Christmas lights for the cutest old couple ever! That took all day, because Elder Hastings and I had no idea what we were doing! lol! We found a few more investigators this week, so that's exciting! We went to the temple so that's always fun and it was also Alec's birthday so we went to Buffalo Wild Wings to celebrate. The Christmas Party is this week so we are excited for that! But yeah, all is well out here in the middle of nowhere. Thanks for all the birthday stuff!! Your missionary, -Elder John M. Gilbert

5 December 2016 - Week 58

So I'm back in the country! I'm now in Fulton Mississippi. Super small town, I had pics to upload but I forgot my go-pro in the apt so I'll try to post them sometime soon. The holidays are always crazy, even for a missionary! There was a Christmas parade in our little town last week and it was super cool. We have the temple and the mission Christmas party this week and a visit from a General Authority. So yeah :)  Thank y'all for all my birthday emails and boxes! I loved all of them! Thanks for all the support!
