Elder Mackey's February 6, 2012 E-mail

Hey Family,
Alright Valentine's Packages! Whoo-hoo!!! I am doing pretty well. Donna, our baptismal date set, is doing awesome! She has tried to put back to baptismal date to like April. She gave a good excuse because she wanted her son to baptize her but wasn't able to do it till April because he does MMA fighting for a living and will be done with his fights in April. But as we taught her with her sister she decided to keep the baptismal date because her mother has been coming to her in her dreams and her sister said that their ancestors are getting antsy and want their work done. So she is determine to keep her date and quit smoking. Please pray for Donna Takayama to quit smoking!
So yesterday I wanted to take a short cut to get home. It turned out to be a very long cut but was worth doing.  Elder Earley and I walked on water! Yes we walked across the lake to the other side. We actually rode our bikes some of the way until Elder Earley slipped and fell. It is very hard to walk on the ice with no traction on your shoes. It was a little scary because I don't know ice very well and there were a lot of cracks some places and I was thinking we were going to die. ha ha but Elder Earley said they were "deep" cracks, whatever that means, and so I just kept praying. They have Zamboni's that go over the lakes and smooth them out so people can go ice skating. I think yesterday the ice was at 14 feet.
Things are going great! Thank you for the Let....or wait havent received any yet ha ha. Thank you for your prayers! I love you all.
Elder David Mackey
