Hola everybody!

Well, I've been on my mission for about six months.  I have served in one area (Woodstock New Brunswick). I've worked with three companions now and I have loved every bit of it.

Transfers are this week and I just found out that I will have the opportunity to continue my service right here in Woodstock! I took some time to just pondered my experience thus far in Woodstock. There has been lots of growth in all areas. The Houlton branch is increasing in size on a regular basis. It seems there is aways a chance of snow in these parts this time of year.  One thing that you can count on is any sort of weather and the people here stay home. It seems as though people are growing spiritually! It's really neat! Umm... well, that's all that comes to mind this morning:) 

Remember...Don't let the world create you, go create your world:)

Yes, we are experiencing cold weather. No worries, I'm staying warm!

A letter email sent to my folks from the Mission President...

Dear Brother and Sister Craig,

As you have probably heard there is a snow storm currently affecting most areas of our mission. It has just started but weather forecasters are predicting it will be a bad one with quite a bit of snow and high winds. At this point very little snow has fallen but in anticipation of the storm, schools have been cancelled, doctors offices closes and non essential travel restricted.

Our missionaries live in nice apartments, most have 4 wheel vehicles of some sort and are prepared for such weather conditions.

Of course as the storm develops we will ask them to stay at home and use the telephone to do their missionary work. We have a well developed means of communication through the Internet and telephones to keep in touch with them all.

It is important to note that the worst of the storm will be in the New York and Boston areas where snow falls are predicted to be in the 1-3 foot level with winds gusting up to 65 miles per hour. It is not anticipated that weather in Atlantic Canada will be as severe.

As the situation unfolds we will keep you posted of any developments. The safety and security of the missionaries is our highest priority.

It is of interest that this storm coincides with our transfer week and will undoubtedly affect the arrival of our new missionaries today. As these storms usually only last a day or two we are hopeful it will not impact those missionaries who will be travelling home this Friday.

Best regards,

President Brian D. Leavitt
