Hello everybody! This has truly been an amazing week! On Tuesday it was really snowing hard so we weren't allowed to drive. So we broke the snow shovels out and started shoveling some drive ways. We went to Maria and Atta's home( they are an older couple that we have been doing some service for) and we shoveled their drive ways as well. When we finished the clouds looked like they were parting and we would be able to go out and make it to all of our appointments! We went into their home and had some pizza with them and about 20 min later as we were leaving, it was a blizzard outside! All the drive ways we had shoveled were completely covered again!! So no one would ever know that someone had shoveled their drive ways for them... Oh well, it is the thought that counts right? On Saturday we had an awesome lesson with Julia! We had the Davis family come with us. They connected with Julia and her dad very well. Sister Davis invited Julia to choir and to the mutual activities. It was awesome to have members there who could testify on a more personal level to those we teach. I have gained such a strong testimony of the importance of having members help in the work. It has helped the people we are teaching so much. Julia is one of the most sincere, good hearted people I have met. I know she will keep progressing and I am excited to see it. Sunday was a miracle. We had Zach, April, Atta, and Julia at church!! It was awesome! They all had a great experience as well. We also had 3 LA members we are teaching come as well. It was definitely one of the best Sunday's of my mission. I am so grateful for Heavenly Father and his work and the love he has for all of his children. I know all of the great things that are happening are because of him and I am just grateful to be a part of it. This church is true and missions are the best! Have a great week!
