I am so excited that the holidays are finally over. I know some people would call me the Grinch. But everyone that wanted to hear more about the gospel all told us to come back in January. So this last week was wonderful!!! Everyone had time to talk to us and they still had the holiday spirit so no one was rude. I was in heaven!
So New years eve when everyone was getting crazy Sister Shelley and I spent the night inside eating Chinese food and drinking Martinellis. it was basically as crazy as missionaries can get. Well obedient missionaries ;) Then we went to bed at 10:30. Wow we are wild! Well at least I can bring out the wild side in Sister Shelley. She is a hoot! give her some martinellis and some bubblicious gum and its a party!
Then the next day it had snowed 2ft and the roads hadn't been plowed yet. So we got to stay inside and plan for a while and prepare for the week. By nighttime we decided to get adventurous and go out and see some of our investigators. But then it started to snow buckets of snow and we were soaked. We literally looked like snowmen walking around town. So as we went on our way back to our apartment we made some quick snow angels and went in for the night.
Later on in the week we got to go to my first Zone meeting. I learned so much about just learning to trust in the spirit and letting it guide you to people that want to learn more about the gospel. It was a 3 1/2hr drive into the meeting for 2hrs and then we drove back that night. But after that meeting we were amazed to see the difference in how if we let the spirit guide us to where we need to be we see the most amazing miracles!
I had the chance this week to invite someone to to be baptized, it was my first time asking someone ;). She is the most amazing person. We started teaching her when I got here and she is just zooming right through the book of Mormon and guess what... She accepted baptism!!!! She told us she has just been waiting for us to ask! We literally didnt know what to say when we left her house! Sister Shelley hasnt had anyone accept baptism since shes been here and shes been here for 6 months! Well miracles all over the place!
This gospel is seriously so amazing and it blesses peoples lives in so many ways.
I hope you all have a splendid week and remember God loves you!
