Dear Family and Friends,
This week was good! Crazy busy though. I felt like we were always doing something, which is good just tiring!!
Tuesday: We woke up at 6:00 to go shovel some driveways. Cause wow it snowed here! Like 4-5 feet of snow. It was nuts!! Everyone in the entire mission got grounded from there cars because there was so much snow on the roads. Then we went with a recent convert named Taz to workout at a place called lifetime fitness. It was fun we went in the Sauna and played some basketball. Then I went on exchanges with the Spanish elder. Elder Richins. It was super fun! He is so cool! I really like him a lot and learned a lot from him. We had dinner with a family and the rule was we could only speak Spanish so that was fun. I could actually say a few things and understand quite a bit, all thanks to Coach Kunzler. Then we had a lesson with some guy I can't remember his name. But it was taught in Spanish obviously. I did not say anything, but I did for sure feel the spirit it was so cool.
Wednesday: We had district meeting. It was really good! We got a training on receiving revelation. I got a lot out of it. Then since we were out of miles, we were on out bikes for a few hours. It was so hard biking in 2 feet of snow. I fell like 3 times hahah, it was very frustrating. Then we had dinner with the Stallings family. They are super cool! There son just returned from Brazil on his mission and it was fun talking to him about his experiences. Then we played basketball at the church. Lots of non members came this week so it was really good to see that.
Thursday: We did some service at Prince of Peace for a few hours, that is always fun. Then we saw a few members, and shared some messages with them. Then we went to the Holmbergs and had dinner with them. They had the college football playoff on, so that was difficult hahah.
Friday: We had P day, which was really fun. We played Basketball, Soccer, Frisbee, Wiffle Ball, and Volleyball. Wow that was so much fun! I was really tired after it though. But so worth it. :) Then we had dinner with the Briggs family. They were cool! Then we went to the Richards family's home. One of my favorites in the ward. They are so cool!
Saturday: We had Basketball at 10:00- 12:00 and that was fun. Then from 12:00 - 2:00 we did some planning. Then from 2:00 - 4:00 we played volleyball. Playing all these sports are so fun. It is such a good way to get less actives, investigators and just anyone out. Our ward is very good at fellow shipping people. Much better than the ward in Thunder Bay.
Sunday: We had church which was really good. None of our investigators were there though, so that was a bummer.. Then ate at the Richards home again. They love us so they feed us a lot haha! Then we got a call from a member who had to go to the ER and he needed food. So we called a different member to ask if they could give us some food to take to him and they said yes. So we took that to him in Burnsville. Which is like 25 minutes away. So we got back to our apartment at 11:00 so that was rough. But we got permission. So don't worry we are being obedient :)
One of the messages I shared with members this week, was out of an article in the October 2014 Ensign called " The Jaedite Cabbage " I cannot remember if I already told you guys about it. But I really love it! I encourage all of you to go read it. Thanks for everything again. The weeks are just flying by, it is crazy. I love you all! Have the best week!!
