Well, this week was pretty good! It SNOWED this week! It was awesome! It made my entire day! It was so great! Especially since you don't see snow much here! It was some thick stuff! Sadly, it didn't stick around, but no bother! It was awesome nonetheless!
But this week we may have found some people to teach! One of our member's has a nonmember family living with them that are seriously thinking about investigating the church! And if they do, that would be so awesome! They are really prepared.
Also, one of our former investigators called us over last night so we could comfort one of his friends who was grieving the recent loss of his girlfriend. We went over and found out that his friend had met with missionaries before, and that he and I had had off and on texting conversations for pretty much the entire time that I have been here. So it was great to finally meet him. We taught a tad bit of the plan of salvation, and also gave him a blessing. He said he felt really good afterwards. He said he would like to come to church and get baptized! So that was really good to hear! We are going to try and see him this week. So hopefully that goes over well.
But this week has been good. It had its ups and downs, but it was all good in the end! Time keeps passing quicker and quicker. The weeks feel like days, and I feel a sense of urgency. This is truly a hastening work. I know it, and I love it!!
Me with my mini snowman, Elder Snow! He held up a mormon.org card for us and people would take pictures of him and everything. He was a star! Sadly, he didn't survive the night. When we returned the next day, poor Elder Snow had lost a good fight with the raging arctic wind. But he was a good man. He fulfilled his purpose!
Till the Work is Done
