This week we experienced our first snowfall! Well, the first snow that actually stuck. It was fun to tract in the snow--people were a lot more willing to listen! It was awesome! and really nice on our part because we have been able to talk to a lot more people. We have a mission challenge this week. It's called the Book of Mormon Blast! Basically, you talk to as many people as you can and give out as many copies of the Book of Mormon as possible. It sounds scary, but it is actually so much fun!It was a bit rough this week, but it totally turned around! It was fantastic! On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, most of our appointments cancelled. It was awful! I was so disappointed. Well, anyways. Obviously, we were sent where we needed to go.
On Wednesday, we had a wonderful time at the temple and our first appointment cancelled, which was a bummer, because it was with Maryanne. We just love Maryanne! Then our appointment with Randy cancelled! Then Joel cancelled our appointment that night. It was a rough day. (I can't remember if I have written about Joel. He's a less active returned missionary.) BUT. Amid all of this craziness, we said a prayer to know where to go and who to see. Well, during the prayer, we had the impression to go see a less active woman, named Sherri. Sherri is an amazing woman. I LOVE HER. Anyways, we talked to her about her concerns with coming to church. She mentioned that she was afraid people would ask her questions she wouldn't know how to answer and also, she didn't want to leave her family at home while she came to church. All Sister Holladay and I asked her to do was to pray to know what she should do about church. Well, turns out her visiting teachers, Lisa and Teresa, talked to her the next day. Lisa was messaging her on facebook about coming to church, while Teresa was on the phone talking to her about coming to church. Needless to say, she got the hint from God that she needed to come to church. It was a wonderful surprise to see her in the chapel on Sunday morning!
Here are a few pictures I took recently before my camera broke!1. Keep calm and go to the temple! Which we did this week!
