Photos from the MTC- And More……
So this week was rather eventful.
On Tuesday we did some tracting and got our first NEW INVESTIGATOR!! We taught the restoration right at the doorstep and invited her to be baptized and she accepted! WOOT! WOOT! PRAYERS ARE ANSWERED! THE CHURCH IS TRUE!
On Wednesday we did some contacting for former investigators and tracting. No results there 😦
On Thursday we did service. One of our investigators is taking a huge test to become a teacher and she is trumped at the art history section….. And I told her, have no fear! Art history geek is here! So she is a lot more confident now for that 🙂 I also gave her some study tips and helped her look at pieces for composition exercises. It was awesome! I love art history! After that we went over to the Lang’s house for service and then dinner, we helped Brother Lang with cleaning up his garden for the winter. They said that we did more than the elders have ever done in the past. Hehehe, sisters are awesome. After dinner we had splits, not much success. We went to every house that was highlighted because no one knew them. And not a single person was home in any of the eight houses we went to! In the end it was pretty funny.
On Friday we had District meeting, set some new goals and are totally excited to blow them out of the water!
On Saturday I woke up with headache, took some painkillers and then felt very dizzy and lightheaded all day. Sister Noyce even said that I looked really sick. So we canceled our appointment with the ward mission leader that night and turned in early. I just went right to sleep and curled up in all my blankets and slept until morning.
Yesterday I woke up and felt like a million bucks! It was awesome at church, we had a “Linger Longer” which is a dinner that the last ward puts together in the cultural hall. After last hour we all head in there and have a feast! We had ham, which made me miss my Grandpa’s BBQ sauce that would have gone so perfectly with that ham, After that we went over to the other sister’s place to get some more pamphlets. We were in the other room when we heard screaming, Sister Laming had fallen on her elbow and was in intense pain. We took her to the ER, after four hours we were told that they couldn’t tell if anything was broken, but she will have a follow up appointment in a few days. Sister Laming however said that it hurts way worse than when she had broken a bone before. And then she’s been getting sick from all the pain 😦 keep Sister Laming in your prayers, she needs the support!
On a lighter note we had a huge snow storm, so there is snow in the valley! Yay for me! But no knows how to drive in it. So there have been several accidents since last night. And I’m pretty sure school got canceled for the local kids. So snow day for them!
Anyway, I love the snow and hate the cold!
