|Me with Sis Wahlen on a beautiful sunny day|
Sounds like you had a busy week! I am doing well, all recovered from the flu and able to walk and
|Recovery from bike accident last week!|
bike and do all I need to do. The weather was extremely bipolar this week. It was beautiful and sunny early on and then on Friday they canceled school because of ice. It is supposed to snow tomorrow...I hate snow!!!!! Bur I will survive. We are going to go by hand warmers today and I am going to shove them in the toes of my boots since I can't fit enough socks on my feet and still get them in my boots. Those gloves you sent are amazing. I love them.

see the ice hanging on the sign?

This week was pretty great. We were able to see most of our investigators and two of them are reading the Book of Mormon which is amazing. The Book of Mormon is the key to conversion. If it is true then Joseph Smith was a prophet and he restored the Church of Jesus Christ to the earth today. If anyone is having doubts about the Church or having a difficult time, I exhort them to read the Book of Mormon and to gain or reaffirm their testimony of it. I have been able to gain such a testimony of the Book of Mormon on my mission. I have grown to love it so much. In my personal study I have been marking the different attributes of Christ found in Preach My Gospel in different colors and it has helped focus and direct my study. I have been able to pick out different attributes and examples of how people have exhibited them and it has been a great blessing. You can do it with anything, Young Women's values, the doctrine of Christ, or any other attributes you wish to develop. I highly recommend it. I know that if you go into your study of the scriptures with faith and with a focus you will be able to better receive the revelation the Lord wants to give to you.
Sheri Dew came and spoke to the greater Houston area on Saturday and we were able to attend the broadcast of her talk at the stake center. On the way there we saw this dog on the side of the road by our house. We all looked at each other and realized that it was one of the dogs that has been on the lost dogs signs around the neighborhood. So we turned around and pulled over. Sister Wahlen then immediately runs after it, so of course I have to follow her. She is calling the dog but it keeps running farther away so we give up. Sister Wahlen then proceed to lose her shoes in the mud she was running in and had to go back for them, so she was a bit muddy when we got to the broadcast. Sheri Dew was an amazing speaker and I am glad that we had the opportunity to hear from her.
Sister Wahlen and I are getting along great. We have been together for just about four months now so we know each other pretty well. Our last companionship inventory was pretty funny. It was about 9:45 at night because we wanted to get all of our weekly planning session done before the next day. So it was late and we were kind of tired and loopy so we made some really funny comments and faces and just laughed. I hope we didn't wake Sister Canfield up. I am so glad that she is my companion, she helps me to be better and to see where I can improve. I am lucky to have her and hopefully she doesn't mind having me for a companion.
We saw one of our investigators this week and her daughter is in Girl Scouts. We actually saw her as we were trying to see someone else because she was out doing door to door sales. It brought back a lot of memories of my own girl scout days! Also made me want girl scout cookies. I saw that new cookie and it looks pretty goood and non-perishable..*hint hint* Good luck with all the cookie sales though! Sorry I won't be there to help out!
