More Snow!

Hi.
Highlights:
- We moved into another members house this last week. And he just got an eight week old  lab puppy.
- We had a really awesome lesson with Kim and had some really awesome members there. Kim is now on for Mar 17th baptism. Pray that it sticks.
- We got an awesome winter storm yesterday and last night. Probably 6 inches of snow. I could barely see getting home last night. It was awesome.
- Had a great lesson with Tant. Taught him the restoration and he said he'd like to know if it's true. Pray for his wife though, she's having surgery tomorrow on her knee and we won't be able to meet him for a couple weeks.



“God has given us this mortal experience and the temporal challenges that attend it as a laboratory where we can grow into the beings Heavenly Father wants us to become.”                                                                                             - President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Not today Satan!

Hey.


Highlights:
- Zone Conference was great. 
- Sister Savage says "Not today Satan!"
- We had another "Why I Believe" mission fireside. It was really great. We sang "This is the Christ" as a mission choir again and it was amazing. 
- I saw a bunch of my missionary buds at the above mentioned fireside.
- We met with a bunch of investigators this past week. Kim, Tant, Sam, Richard. Most of them are doing well. Kim said she prayed about the Book Mormon and says she knows it's true. She'l be baptized by the end of march. 
- The lady that we're living with made cinnamon rolls (there famously good!).
- We didn't get in a car accident in all the winter weather that happened. 👍

- We were finally able to teach Aditya and Purnima who are now investigators, and they are awesome.
- We've been working with the youth in the ward a lot this past week and will be over the next couple of weeks.
- Got a little older... 
- We've been texting a lady named Kisha uplifting scriptures from the Book of Mormon and she loves them. She is just too busy at the moment to meet.

Snow on snow on snow

We got a pretty big storm yesterday, and we ended up with quite a bit of snow. It'll all be gone in the next couple days though. We met with Kim this week and she is still really cool. We are getting lots of fellowship from the ward so that is awesome. 
My new companion is Elder Hales. He is from Mesa Arizona. He's been out for about 5 months.

"What would your life be like without the Book of Mormon?"

Hello! It has been a good week. We got to bike around all week due to having to put our car in the shop. We've got it back now, thank goodness. It's been cold here. 
Highlights:
- Taught Kim. She is still doing great, but she's out of town a lot.
- Went to Flat Irons Community church. It was basically a Rock concert (even with smoke machines)
- Started teaching the girlfriend of a missionary out from this ward.
- Had Interviews with President Savage.
- A pair of my pants got melted by a lava hot iron. I then got some new pants.
- I ran 17 mph.
- Got a new President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. 

Good day to you all today. It is a great time to be alive in these the last days. We have Prophet after Prophet reveal the word of God to us to help us live our lives in these times. We have the wonderful church and it's organization that guides and keeps us on the path to Eternal Life. And we have both the Book of Mormon and the Bible to bring God's guidance, peace, spirit, knowledge, and Son to us. 

Let these be a witness and testimony to you. Have a wonderful week.
