Merry Christmas family! I hope y'all are doing great!!!! I am excited to talk to you on Christmas. I should be able to Skype and I will try to do it around 9 or 10 in the morning. I will probably call thurs morning and let y'all know. I have been doing well. We had a slower week but it all ended well. A few people came out to church so it was awesome to see them there! So a few stories from this week:
We did some tracting and we left a He is the Gift pass along card at a members house (we knew it was a member and just wanted to leave one) he texted us later that day and said, "I discovered the gift. Can I be baptized?" haha it was pretty funny. Last transfer we texted him asking to set up an appointment with their family to share a message and he texted back and said," Sorry my family has already been baptized." haha there are some awesome members down here.
A member gave us a Christmas tree so we have lights hanging up and a 6ft tree all decorated and we put all out presents under it.
Elder Healey emailed me and told me he met John Call in his mission! Haha it is pretty awesome. He didn't know him before but they started mentioning some people they knew. Well I hope yall are doing well. Thanks for everything you have done for me. It means a lot to me. I am excited to talk to y'all on Christmas! I hope you have a fantastic week.
Love, Elder Scott Krstyen

Happy birthdaymom!!!!! I hope it is a great day for you!! I love you and appreciate you!
This week went pretty well. We had an awesome zone training(we have awesome zone leaders, Elder Means and Elder Young) and after that we had the Christmas party over at the Apache building and that went really well as well. We also had our Ward Christmas party and a lot of people came out to it. I hope they felt the Spirit of Christmas there. We have some good appointments set up for this week, so I can't complain. For Pday today we are just planning on going to some shops here in Kirtland and then probably going to the church. It is a great time of year and I hope y'all are enjoying it and avoiding the stresses of the Christmas season. I finished the Book of Mormon again today and that was a special experience. I have been reading in Jesus the Christ about the birth of Christ and it is a really good book. Though it has some big words so I have been constantly pulling out the dictionary and finding the meaning of certain words. I just want yall to know that I love you and hope you are doing well. I am excited to talk to you this next week on Christmas! Mom, I hope you have a great birthday!!!! I love you guys and will talk to you next week!!
Love, Elder Scott Krstyen
