That come and see activity is something the wards do out here! I wonder if that's were it came from? Is Sister Crookston still there? That'll be a great activity though. There are a lot of people that just need an invite and the come and see is a great opportunity to extend one.
That's fun Kristie and Kinzie got to spend the night. I couldn't believe how big Kinzie was at the Christmas call. She will be a full blown kid when I get home. But there will also be another baby so I can experience that one growing up. ;)
I didn't cash that check yet. I was going to send it home for you to put in my account. Can I cash it at any bank? or does it have to be one I have an account with.
That's great Tyler is enjoying his new class. I thought that would be more his speed. I'm sure he is a great teacher. And I still never got classroom pictures.
It wasn't that bad of a storm. It was pretty cold and slushy and They don't really have snow equipment like plows so the cars were shut down for a day but we were on bikes so it didn't affect us other than it was wet and cold and hurt my face a little riding. But all in a days work for a missionary.
I haven't really heard much about the panthers here. I'm sure I would if I were in north Carolina but here it's a lot of Stealers and red skins. That'll be fun to watch the game over at Shan's. Sad that they lost though. Dad said the game wasn't that great. Too many interceptions.
We started teaching a mom and her daughter this past week. It was pretty good. It started going pretty south because she doesn't believe one church is right so long as they are all teaching from the "word," the bible. So when we started to talk about the Book of Mormon she wasn't happy and we had to explain that it doesn't replace the bible but that it goes with it and then she was ok with it. I hope that she will be open to praying about the Book of Mormon and the church.
Elder Andrus is my new companion. He is so sweet! I think I will really like this next transfer. He is really dedicated to missionary work and has a lot of new Ideas that I think will really help our area.
I loved the missionary devotional. I can't remember the specific things that I wrote down to change but that's why I take notes and write them down in the first place. But the general message was to teach people to repent and to baptize converts. It really focused on the 8 sections in our 12 week training booklet. And I really loved Elder Bednar's part on the role of the holy ghost in conversion. It was great!
Well I love you guys! I hope you have a great week. Remember who you are and follow the promptings of the spirit. And if you don't feel like promptings are coming. Say a prayer ask "What lack I yet?" and then read from the Book of Mormon and I promise the Holy Ghost will let you know what you should do to improve.
Good luck, I know tax season will be coming up so keep it up and don't forget to Pray.
Love you Mom
