Running in the cold means you don't get sweaty

Pros of running in the negatives: you don't get hot and sweaty.
Cons of running in the negatives: you get ice on your face and can't feel your fingers.

The work is fabulous! People are coming to church and preparing themselves for baptism. 
The commandments make people better people, that's why God gives them to us. Guys 
sing us love songs and then we teach them about the Gospel and tell them to date girls from the YSA branch. If I dream about the apocalypse, I'm now safe in those dreams because I have lots of friends in the army to save me.

There was a kid in church on Sunday who bore his testimony and shared the really cool 
story of how he got to church that day: his friend on a mission messaged him on Facebook and rebuked him for not going to church. He responded that he had just moved to Fairbanks and too bad, there's no Mormons up here... But she left him with 1 Nephi 3:7 - the Lord will provide a way. So he agrees that if there's a way, he'll get there. Lo and behold, the next 
day someone randomly walks into his barracks room and mentions something about 
Mormons and the YSA branch, so he asks more questions and ends up getting a ride to 
church! He's got a lot to work on, but he also has a lot of faith and is definitely being led by God.

Repent! Everybody needs to repent. And don't worry, that just means to change to become 
like God. This work I'm working on repenting of pride.  Do it.
