What a week!
This week has been pretty good... it has been freezing cold but good! We have made a huge push this week to visit a whole bunch of less actives, and we ended up having 4 less active lessons and then we had 3 recent convert lessons. It was so good to go out and meet a whole bunch of people and really start working and teaching them all. We have some really great less active people here... I think it will be challenging to get them to come to church, but we will try! We also had a lesson with Kendra this week... it was a pretty intense lesson. We got there and started to talk and then within the first 5 minutes she started talking about temple sealings... I guess a member told her that he was going to be sealed in the temple and was really excited, but Kendra got curious and looked up temple sealing on the internet... the INTERNET! Needless to say she pretty much got all the details about the temple and she was pretty freaked out, so that was crazy I had never dealt with that before, it was hard cause you can't talk about that stuff, but some how we calmed her down and worked it out. After that we taught her the plan of salvation and she really accepted that. She is still on track to be baptized, but now we just have to really work with her on understanding the temple.
Other than that this has been a pretty normal week, we helped a person move on Saturday and had a whole bunch of great dinner appointments this week. On Friday we actually stopped and helped this lady, she almost hit a deer and then ended up sliding into a ditch, so we stopped and helped her and waited with her until someone came to pull her out. Its so funny how many people end up in the ditches here... I have been in it once when Elder Burnett was driving, but I keep praying that while I'm driving I stay out of them!
Anyways I hope you all have a great week and enjoy the warmth... it got down to -46 this week!!! brrrrrr!
Love you all have a great week!
Love Elder Farnsworth
