Christmas Package Arrived

First things first---I got three packages from you guys this week. All at once. You guys are crazy! I haven't opened up two of them because there was no way I was going to be able to bike with them yesterday. The one I opened was the one with the Christmas tree, presents, and decorations. I'll send you a pic of me next to it. By the way, are we allowed to open up the presents yet? Haha I figured not but I wanted to ask just in case.With this week like I said it was kind of same old same old. We just got out and worked. We don't have too many investigators right now so we kinda spent the week doing more contacting. There are a couple of people that we want to follow up on but we're not sure how it'll turn out. I'll let you know though.
With "O" it's been going good. They are continuing to see us and are reading each day. What was cool is we ended up having an hour and a half long lesson with them on Saturday. They had asked us all kinds of questions and even had a notebook writing down the definitions of certain words and stuff. Super cool. "O" and her family will be awesome members when they get baptized. We still have to teach them a lot, but I look forward to when they will.
The other investigator is "S" and she is continuing to be awesome! She has a date to be baptized in January and she is still holding to it and keeping commitments. She is awesome to sit with and since we have taught her all of the lessons several times we actually go into a little more depth with her. Nothing crazy, just details, like about the Millenium and stuff.
This week wasn't actually bad it was just not much to write about type stuff. All of our investigators are doing great and we have a couple of people that show some potential so I will let you guys know.
Here is a funny story from this week for you guys though. So we wanted to follow up on a referral we received from a contact and went to the house. The lady we were looking for wasn't there but instead a guy came out and started to talk to us. This guy might have been high. He might have just been straight crazy, but he started going off about all kinds of things. He said he was looking for the silver souls. He said he knows there are gold souls and silver souls and if two silver souls have a kid, the kid is white. He started talking about how he saw one kid and suddenly the kid ran away from him and went and dived into a bucket. When he went to look in the bucket the kid was gone. This poor guy was all over the place talking about who knows what. He was just straight crazy. Your guess is as good as mine with what he was talking about. 
Anyways, thank you guys so much for the packages and the awesome emails! Dad I hope you start to feel better soon! I'm sorry there is not much. Next week hopefully will be awesome.
Love you guys!
Elder Cooper
