Elder Bailey did a service project, and used some of the skills his dad taught him! Good job son!!

Hey fam! 
Yeah mom sorry haha I agree with bruce, leave christmas music alone until after thanksgiving. As for trey re-opening an area, just remember that you are there in that area because the Lord trusts you. don't get discouraged, there's a reason he put you in that area! Man more projects for us?? I'm convinced that ya'll just sit around all day and brainstorm about stuff you can send out here haha. Thank you for thinking of us missionaries. :) to answer your  question about thanksgiving, yes we have a place to go. The VanOrman family feeds us like once a week at least haha and they signed up to have us over on thanksgiving. They have a daughter out right now, so they want her to get blessings by feeding us. They are a great family and they take care of us very well. Thank you so much for switching the ipods, i'm really sorry to make it a hassle for you!

So story time! This week our investigator dawn, we were teaching her and her husband shane the message of the restoration. We get to the part of reciting the first vision, we say "I saw a pillar of light exactly over my head, above the brightness of the sun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me. When the light rested upon me I saw two personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other, this is my beloved son. Hear Him." We held up a picture of joseph in the grove. And as we finished, a steady stream of tears and emotion flooded her being. It seemed as if the darkened room had been suddenly illuminated with the very light of Christ. She then told a story of a time that she had a vision of this very scene, where she looked up and found herself in a grove of trees, and looked up and beheld a bright light. The Left side of the light being distinctly different from the right. And she knew that it was the father and the son. She then told us that she knew without doubt that what we told her was true. It was magnificent. My dear family, I love you so much and miss you so much, but i am uncertain if there is anything in this world that brings more satisfaction than being a missionary within the midst of that scene on tuesday night. To feel the pure love of God, and then watch it work it's miracle in the lives of others is what the gospel itself is said to be - Miraculous. :) I hope you all have a great week and take strength in the knowledge of the restored gospel. What a beautiful gift it is! I love you!
Love, Elder Bailey Brimhall :) :)

I guess this is what missionaries do when they're bored!! ;)
