New address

Here is Colton's new address:

P.O. Box 523
Peterstown WV

Transfer to Peterstown WV

 Colton and Elder Erickson  (Peterstown WV)

 Colton's district in Lynchburg VA
Colton has been transferred to Peterstown WV, here is what he has to say about his new area: Peterstown is a pretty small town.  We cover all of Monroe county and part of the county next to us. We cover parts of WV and VA so it's pretty nice to bounce between the two states.  Our branch is small,we had 11 members show up last week.and our building is an old Baptist church (I think). With having such a small branch we only meet for 2 hours on Sunday's.  Sunday was our first time to speak in Sacrament, I imagine that is going to happen quite a bit!

New Year's/ transfer

E-mail dated 12/01/14

"Well, the news is in and I am staying in Sissonville.  Elder Varner is going to Roanoke and is going to be in the YSA ward.  My new companion is going to be Elder Quick.  He has been out for 6 months, I am excited for this transfer.  Well, Stephanie (the lady who is on date) wanted to move her baptism to February so that her family could come and see it.  She said that they are not members and she wants to be able to bear her testimony to them.  She said that when she visited a Baptism and heard the Testimony from the person being Baptized that it was one of the things that converted her,  so she hopes it will have an impact on her family.  It was kinda cool to hear and made me even more excited!  The Brown family had us over for New Year's and ordered some Chinese food and we just hung out for the evening.  Sure do miss and love everyone!"

"Well, this week has been a pretty good one.  We got snow on Thursday and it has stuck through today. They cancelled church on Sunday because there was so much snow.  We share a ward with another set of Elder's and currently their van is broke down, so we woke up early and drove into Charleston to pick them up.  It was Elder Varner's first time driving in the snow or icy conditions, I was lucky to make it out with my life!  I think I had a death grip on the door the whole time!  Since church was cancelled we stayed and shoveled snow with the Westside elder's for the day, we just walked around the neighborhood and shoveled members/ random peoples driveways.  It was pretty fun.  People were surprised when they found out we weren't asking for money.  I found out that Elder Udy's dads birthday was also on Sunday (he is the Elder in the picture) but he is turning 50 something so dad can still pretend like he is young.  Elder Udy is a pretty cool kid, I would love to serve with him if the opportunity came about.  After we finished shoveling snow President wanted to have a special Sacrament meeting for the Elders that were close to the mission office, at the expense of alot of miles we went and it was totally worth it!! President started teaching some pretty deep doctrine the whole time and we were there for like 2 hours. 
It is crazy to think this transfer is half over and Christmas is on the way.  The Brown's invited both sets of Elder's to their house to skype on Christmas day so that should be lots of fun.  I don't know how to do it but I am sure they will show us how. "
