Happy New Year everyone! 
I know its a little late but I gotta tell you all the crazy stuff we did new years eve! We partied hard all night from 9:30 until 10:14 (one min before quite time) then shut her down. 
We also had a chance to hear a talk from David Archuletta!!! Boy is that guy a dream boat. I didn't know we were allowed to squeal at devotionals but when he walked in I swear one of the sisters passed out she was so excited. This place is so weird haha. He actually did an amazing job though. Has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard. 
My Russian is still terrible but its coming. We are always teaching lessons so it very hard not to use every other waking min. trying to study the language so you can teach better so you have more time to study the language so you.... its kinda a cycle. 
We got to go to the temple for the first time today. Its been closed for repairs and they finally opened up, so that was very cool. Its nice to just take a break and not think for a few hours. I would bear my testimony in Russian but I am to lazy to switch this computer over to Cyrillic so I'm not going to haha.
Porkchop is leaving soon so that's sad, but I know Jake is going to be in here soon so i'm excited for that. I also saw Jason Duffin which was cool. I love hearing from you all, keep me updated on what is happening in the world. We really don't hear anything (although somehow it got through that both Alabama and Florida st lost so the its Oregon and Ohio st in the championship which is awesome!)
I love you all and miss you a ton.  Talk to you next week!

7 We can't listen to music or talk at the MTC. Which is the worst rule ever. This is the definition of temptation.
