Hey everyone! 1/9/17
This week has been awesome! I'm still learning the new area but its gong really well. It snowed this week, not as much as back at home but it's probably just as cold as back at home. At least it feels super cold. The cold hits through everything so you really have to wear lots of layers.
The snow this week was just a kick off to an awesome blessing filled weekend. We had some really great times. It didn't start out that way though. In the beginning, we thought it was going to be a crazy weekend because a lot of people were cancelling their appointments. I really wanted to be sad and worried about what we were going to do but we just decided to laugh about it and find joy in the little things. Man did that change it all around! The weekend went awesome!
We put our awesome friend JR on date for baptism and he picked his own day. He wants to be ready by January 28th so put it on your calendar! He has been coming to church for weeks and he really loves it.
Then we met a lady named Pam who loves the church so much! We taught her and she said we could come back. She is also excited to get baptized on February 4th. Lots of blessing so hopefully it all goes well.
Some other cool things that happened this week: we got to teach people in not your typical places. We taught a guy working at the gas station. Usually the receipt prints out at the pump but it didn't and so as we were walking in we said, maybe there is someone who wants to learn more in here. As we left the guy with our card he said Mormons! What do Mormons believe? It was amazing!
We taught another lady as we were walking across the street to get to our appointment. My favorite one was when we were going to a member’s house to drop off a copy of the Book of Mormon. We were dropping it off at the front desk and as we were about to leave, I felt like we should talk to the front desk lady more and leave her with something to read. We talked to her for a bit and left her with a copy of the Book of Mormon. She agreed to meet with us again tomorrow.
I know the Lord is preparing people all around us and all we need to do is share what we know. There are so many blessings from it. I hope you all have a great week! I love the mission and I love you all!
