It's Snowing Blessings! 12/5/2016

Today we woke up to it snowing!! It didn't snow too much, but covered the ground for a little while. It has since melted... not quite like Utah snow haha. Anyway this week was great and snowed not only literally but also spiritually as we witnessed many miracles:

Yesterday was definitely the highlight of the week!! My companions and I made it a goal to get 5 people at church that we have been working with, which is a pretty high goal for this area. Throughout the week we focused on committing everyone we could to coming to church, and then we kept in contact throughout the week so that we could make sure that they were coming. Then on Sunday we fasted to hit our goal and have 5 people at church. Well church came and blessings just fell right out of the sky... 5 people came to church!! And in some cases the people that came were totally a surprise! We hit our goal! For those who are returned missionaries you will understand our excitement. Anyway, the highlight of the week was in the second ward during Sacrament meeting. We have been working with C over the past couple of weeks. On this past Tuesday, Elder Lund and Elder Killian went over to give C and her family a turkey and some canned food for the holidays. While they were there they met with Z, C's mother that lives with them. She was so excited to meet them and heard such great things that she accepted the food and a Book of Mormon. Fast forward to Sunday, Elder Sanchez and I are sitting in the very back of the meeting when we see C and her mom walk in, we were so excited to see them we almost jumped out of our seats! Then they joined us in Sunday school and loved it. At the end Z asked us this question: "How do you become a Mormon?" Elder Lund and I were with her at the time and had to refrain from jumping too hysterically but managed to calmly tell her all about baptism and asked her if she would like to be baptized. She told us that she had been thinking about it and wants to learn more. We are going over Tuesday and can't wait to teach them the Gospel of Jesus Christ and teach them more about baptism.

Well that's all for this week, hope that you all have a great week!
Love you all.

P.S. Our district is going caroling tonight so that should be super fun!! haha
