On Tuesday we had interviews with President Anderson. It was great getting to see him and his wife again. On Wednesday we had District Meeting which is always fun. Then we met up with our zone and watched the World Wide Missionary Broadcast! That was awesome!! It's always awesome when Apostles speak to you! Especially about missionary work!
Some of our appointments fell through again this week, but we found a new investigator! His name is R! He had met with missionaries before but lost contact. We taught him about the Restoration and he believes that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet. He has a baptismal date set for March 5 and we are so stoked!
We also got to finally have a lesson with B! He told us that he always feels the spirit so strongly when he reads the Book of Mormon. We bore testimony that it was because the spirit testifies of truth. He knows he should get baptized but also knows that he has a lot of changing to do. He was planning on coming to church but CHURCH WAS CANCELLED! I can't believe it!
A huge winter storm hit us and buried us in snow on Saturday. 2 1/2 feet! It was crazy! So, our Sunday was spent digging ourselves out. We shoveled snow ALL DAY. But we were able to help quite a few people and talk to some of them about the temple that's being built in Philadelphia!
Another reason that it was such a bummer that church was cancelled was because Brother H was supposed to get the priesthood! We had a lesson with him earlier in the week and it was so funny! We called the Bishop who told him that he would be getting sustained and ordained on Sunday. Brother H's face was priceless! We are so so happy for him!
This week while tracting, we went to the weirdest place. It was a street full of row homes, and because the houses were so close together they were numbered in halves. So, 728, 728 1/2, 730, 730.5...... You get the picture. It was dead silent and empty except for this kid up the street playing a recorder. I felt like I was in some crazy dream!
Well, that's all for now! I love you all! Stay warm!
