Hello one and all,
Oh man, I put this off to the end again, sorry! Even more snow has gathered on the ground since the last time I wrote you. My winter clothes from last year. I just need boots and I'll be set.
A few church members took us hiking to Pik Chekova, a famous mountain on Sakhalin. I for one reason or another did not bring enough warm clothes on the hike and everyone looked at me like I was crazy. One of the members was nice enough to lend me his scarf. It was pretty warm most of the hike considering there was snow all around us. The only part that was bad was when we got to the top and it felt like we were on Everest - the wind was blowing so fast. We didn't stay there too long fortunately, and I still have all my fingers and toes.
During Russian Practice S our teacher told us a little about the history of Russia. It sounded a whole lot like what happened in the Book of Mormon to me. A lot of people denying the throne but instead of judges, imposters took power.
There was a representative of the institute program who visited and we have a conference with him. Despite the meetings we played Floorball which is street hockey in a multi purpose room and we went bowling.
We had some more home teaching and had an awesome lesson with a member we went to last night. He has had many experiences of when it was obvious that God's hand was in his life. It really does seem that when people live righteous lives they end up having some really amazing things happen to them.
Good week! I am still loving it!!!
Love Elder Wilding
