The weather has been kind of crazy here with snow and rain and slush and then it got super windy and cold. Its kind of fun to step on the puddles that froze because the water under the surface is absorbed by the ground and it sounds like glass breaking. It makes walking in the cold a little more enjoyable and fun.
So this week was pretty good. We taught a decent amount of people and some of our investigators kept their commitments to read. Unfortunately no one kept their commitment to come to church so this week we are going to be focusing on helping people come to church and feel of the spirit that is there. We had a funny lesson with a couple that we are teaching about the word of wisdom. Both of them have something that they need to give up and both of them are willing however there are always those two or three excuses for throwing them away. Its amazing to see what a blessing it is to have learned about the word of wisdom as a young person so that I could be free of addictions.
Thanksgiving was pretty fun. We helped someone out cleaning up some stuff during the early afternoon. We knew it would be a hard day to find people home but doing service for a few hours worked out well. We had dinner with a member and then one with an investigator. When I woke up the next morning, I still wasn't hungry because there was so much good food. Unfortunately the lesson with the investigator that day didn't go like we thought it was going to and we are deciding to stop visiting that family as much. They just don't listen very well and they think they don't have to pray to receive answers. So we are just going to go by once a week for now instead of twice a week.
A couple of days ago I started to feel a little under the weather so right now I don't have much of a desire of writing but there is something that I need to share with you. The church has produced another video about keeping Christ in Christmas. Its a wonderful video that brings the spirit very powerfully and quickly. If you just click on the link, it will take you there. Please share this video with everyone. We need to spread the message so we always remember why we are coming together as families to remember the birth of our Savior. I know he live and loves us and wants us to be the best we can be so we can return to live with God again. I know the church is true and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that Joseph Smith was called to restore the church. Also I know by that same spirit that President Monson is a prophet of God and by following his council and the council of the twelve Apostles, we can reach exaltation!
Hope you all have a great week and that you see many miracles!
