-14° F AT LAST

Now that the Official Weather of Canada has begun, masochistic parents can relax — and then un-relax and pray that the lad remembers his layers and layers of costly apparel and fine-twined linens (they’d better be pretty danged fine-twined, I’ll tell you what...).
Hello friends!

I’m glad you’re reading this! If you are, it probably means you care a little bit about me, which is nice. I guess you could be an enemy doing some fact-finding in an attempt to find the best way to destroy me, in which case I applaud you for being so thorough.

This week was good! The temperature continues to plummet. So far, the coldest I’ve seen has been -25 degrees Celsius [-14° F]. And it really only gets worse. People say that January is the coldest, and we've still got a while before we hit that.

The work is going well. We’ve been meeting with a former investigator named Andrea, and she’s progressing fabulously. She’s from Jamaica, and she has three kids. We had a fantastic lesson with her this week, and she’s now on date to be baptized! We’re looking forward to it and hoping that she stays committed.

It would appear that my time in Peace River is drawing to a close. Average time in an area is four transfers (roughly six months) and I’m coming to the end of my fourth here. Obviously, I’ll be where the Lord wants me to be, and if that means I stay in Peace River for another transfer, that’s where I’ll gladly stay. That being said, I’ll also gladly go. Really, whatever happens I’ll be happy with. Elder Murray and I get along great, so I’ll be sad to leave him. (We should be finishing up our antler knives today, so you could say I’m pretty excited.)

This week was a blur. We’re still able to do some service, even though it’s negative freezing outside. Elder Murray and I lament daily the fact that A) missionaries can’t grow beards, and B) he and I can’t physically grow beards. It’d be such an effective combatant against the cold. Alas.

Well, thank you all for reading (even if you are an enemy), and go ahead and write if you feel so inclined!

Keep the faith,
Elder Webb
Yep, that’s our boy.
