6 months!

Well can you believe it? 6 months already! I guess time flies when you're having fun! 
   Well it has been another wonderful week in Vanderhoof. Ted our miracle man we found last week. Remember that found a Book of Mormon in the 1970's? yes, well we went and had another wonderful lesson with him this week. We taught him the restoration and he was just beaming the whole time. We kept asking if he had any questions and he had some but mostly he just said "Well the book of Mormon is true, so then Joseph Smith has to be true, right?" we were like YES! It was a miracle lesson. he had already read to Alma in the first week. Then we invited him to church and he came. So after sacrament meeting they needed Sister Smith to play the piano in primary for the day.So we left him with his member friends. By the end of church we just had everyone in the ward asking us who this miracle man was. We were so confused? Eventually we found out he stood up in gospel principles and priesthood and bore his testimony on the Book of Mormon and the truthfulness of it! People miracles do happen!!! Even in Vanderhoof :)
   Teaching has been going wonderfully. We have a big group of people really progressing in the gospel. It might be not on Sister Neuberts time table. But they are coming closer to Christ! 
   Funny story of the week. Sister Smith and I were out finding this week and some storm clouds started to roll in. We didn't think anything of it, we were just going to keep knocking on doors out in the boonies. So we started to get farther away from the truck and it started to sprinkle a little bit of rain. But we wanted to be hard core missionaries and keep going. So by this time we were pretty far from our car. All the sudden BOOM massive hail storm! The hail was the size of probably my pinky finger nail. But it was dumping and falling fast, like little bb gun pellets. So we start running like crazy people back to the car, I have my scarf over my head now so I just look like a bubushka and Sister Smith being slightly blonde for a moment decided to look up and bam she got some right in the eye. So just picture a Russian grandma running down a dirt road with a girl covering her eyes yelling "I have a black eye". Basically we were a sight for sore eyes (no pun intended) Oh the joys of being a missionary!
Well I hope everyone has a wonderful week this week!
