Major events of the week:
- It snowed. A lot. Winter storm warning and everything. And then
everything froze over night and we barely made it out of our parking
spot. (Literally the worst parking spot in the world). There are two
dumpsters about a yard behind our car and we are blocked in by the
wall of another apartment complex and a big suburban. In the ice, it
was almost impossible to back out to go to church. But #Miracles.
It was also my first time driving in the snow! I drove home the night
of the big snow storm and could hardly see anything, but it was a lot
of fun. And we made it home safely. We couldn't pull into our parking
spot though so we had to get out and shovel for about an hour.
- The elders and us went and played volleyball with the youth during
mutual. It was a ton of fun! I accidentally hit someone in the face
when I was serving. That sucked.
- "A" came to church again this Sunday. He really likes the Gospel
principles class. We are slowly working with him and just trying to
let him know that we love him!
- Last night I came down with a nasty cold. So that's been fun. But in
the middle of the night the thought came to mind that I should text
sister "F" and ask for tips for home remedies (she's a miracle
worker and knows so many tips and tricks) - the thought came back to
my mind this morning when I woke up. She texted me some tips and then
drove over and brought us a big box full of cocoa, oranges, lemons,
honey, left-overs, candy, etc. It was the sweetest thing and I was so
touched! She gave me a big hug and told me that she loved me and
wanted me to feel better. 😢😭
Talk about tender mercies.
I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving. I'm grateful for my family
and the opportunity God has given me to serve a mission. I am
especially grateful for my Heavenly Father and Savior, Jesus Christ. I
know they love us.
