Dearest family and friends,
Snow is on the ground! And that means that we are just that much closer until it is covering the cars. We talked to a woman today that said you can go to sleep with not much snow out and then wake up and open your front door and only see white. And then she proceeded to do swimming motions showing how see gets to work when it's that bad.
Transfers came and went without any changes on our end. Me and the King are together another six. I was nothing but glad. I don't really have any desire to leave this place and am hoping to spend as much time here as possible. The sisters stayed as well.
We took a hike on Monday in a thick fog. We didn't have much of a view when we reached the top. You could say we were in the clouds. I wish I would have had a jar on me to catch a cloud in. I've always wanted to do that ever since I was a little kid. We climbed to see an old crashed USSR airplane which everyone had heard about but no one had seen. That remains the same to this day. We couldn't find the thing. It was a shame but alas, we had a good time.
In the coming week we may be participating in an English club at our local library. We'll see where that goes, we might have to make some kind of power point. I don't know. Anyways, my sisters that where in the MTC with me go home at the end of this transfer. Talk about time flying.
A large part of our week was spent working on less active work and making lists and seeing who we can go visit and whose info is correct and whose isn't and so forth. We got into 2 houses with positive people inside. We are hoping to bring them back to the fold and I think we have a really good chance with one of them. The work of this next week will be largely spent on going out to more people.
I taught priesthood in church. We had a home teaching appointment. We made a huge batch of chum chum that lasted us more than half the week. President has us send him every night a miracle we saw that day. We are truly blessed. I would invite you do do the same. Expect and record the miracles you see. If you don't expect them they won't happen consistently.
Life is good! I love the members and love it here.
