"Coffee is the lifeblood that drives the dreams of CHAMPIONS! Everybody drinks coffee even little kids in mexico DRINK COFFEE!" - Kicking & Screaming

Some other things we learned from Elder Peters Letters this week:

I really haven't been sick yet, I am doing my best to stay healthy, but to be honest I think that I am just not built for cold weather. This may be the first winter in 4 years that I have not gotten a sinus infection that brings on other problems like bronchitis and strep.

A typical meal day for him is: "fried rice for lunch, bread and egg for breakfast, and a pineapple and papaya (popo) for dinner."

"Whats the password? OPEN THIS DOOR! Not even close!" -Tangled

Just as an FYI to all of you.  We were saddened to hear last night that Sister Hill, Brandon's Mission Presidents wife, passed away last night quite unexpectedly.  Brandon found out today while they were playing soccer for P-day. It's a sad day for the Ghana Accra West Mission. Keep President Hill and his family in your thoughts and prayers. Here is a link to a Desert News article about her:

"Cuz they keep comin' from wall to wall!" - Chris Brown

Dear Family and Friends, 

This week was good. We got referrals and baptisms coming up that will fill our church building from wall to wall. Literally, last week Elders Paddon and Varo went to this area that has a school house where a few members meet because the church building is really far. They are opening a group there for them to take the sacrament. Quickly it will be a branch and then we will need two more missionaries in our district to cover their area. For now though, two of us will go there every week until we get two more missionaries. I think next week Varo and I will go.
