Happy New Years!!!

Hey Everybody,

This week has just flown by for me, but I’ve been able to reflect a lot on the past year (as I’m sure many of you have) and the past 6 months I’ve gotten to spend out here on my mission, and I wish I could share everything I have learned! This year has been a really impactful year for me, and I dare say I’ve grown a lot this year, but feel free to correct me if I’m wrong haha. I can positively say that I am by far the most humble person I know. HAHA. I’m just kidding. Really though, I have noticed that a lot of things about me have changed, but what I think has changed the most has been the way that I see those around me. Serving out here I have learned that you have to love everyone you meet, because often times they’ll suprise you. I’ve noticed that I’ve become much less judgemental, and I want to further that in the coming year.

This week we had many great experiences, and I wish I could share them all with you, but I want to keep my email from getting too long, so I will have to just share the highlights. So far on my mission I have had a car full-time so I really havnt had a reason to use my bike, but on Saturday night my companion and I decided to bust out the bikes and cruze around to our evening appointments since they were all fairly close to our appartment, despite the fact that it was about 30 degrees outside haha. We had a good time.

I encourage all of you to take a moment and look back at the year prior, really ponder on the things that happened, but also focus on the areas that you grew the most, and think about ways that you can continue to improve over the coming year! Dont forget to share your goals with someone else so you can keep each other accountable and help each other along the way!

I also really wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone that thought of me this Holiday season, especially those that took the time to write to me and especially those who went above and beyond and sent me gifts!

I love you all!
Until next time,
Elder Klingler

Hope y’all enjoy the photos from our Holidays!
