Week 60

Hello again!

Well, this week went pretty well!  We saw Travis and Mari and they are doing great as always.  I love getting to teach them, they make me feel so good!  We had a cool lesson with the Shurters this week! We were able to read the introduction to the Book of Mormon with them and explain a little after each paragraph. They really liked it and agreed with what it taught. We have both been studying recently about how important the Book of Mormon is in conversion, and it seemed to really sink for them. We then asked if we could come back in a week because he said we could come back in two....we compromised at a week and a half. He had been concerned that we wanted him to read a lot of the Book of Mormon by the next appointment, but we told him we wanted him to read at least 1 Nephi 1 by the next time we saw him, and he said he would do that. It's been fun teaching them, and next time we get to invite them to be baptized when we teach the Restoration! Also about their story, they were taught a couple of years ago and quit because the wife wanted to go back to the baptist church. But now we're teaching them and their hearts just seem softened. The Bishop who has fellowshipped them from the beginning even said that their countenance has seemed to change. So that was just really cool!   We feel really blessed because the area hasn't had new investigators for a long time!  On New Years we were able to get with the mountain zones, minus our missionaries in Payson who got snowed in, and play sports and watch "It's a Wonderful Life" for about 6 hours!  It was really fun!  Fun story on Saturday, we were trying to contact someone in a complex, and they answered finally but they were just house sitting for the people that live there.  So we heard a young family next door so we decided to just knock.  She answered and let us in, and it turns out that she is a member that we had been told about recently.  I don't think we ever got an apartment number, so it was really cool!  Miracles happen when you follow the spirit :).  I'm excited to have a "regular" week where we can go contact the people that we have been told about.  I'm excited for the new year!  I can't believe it's already 2015!  I love you all, have a wonderful week!

 Hey!  We found Jesus!! :)  We found this sign on the way back from Eager and had to take pictures!  We totally got stuck in the snow, but three of us pushed the car out and we survived! We were with our district leader and his companion because they didn't want us driving in the snow.
