on monday night we watched the joseph smith movie with the s fam which was good but we watched it via youtube and put on the subtitles and they were literally crazy and not correct at all so it was hard for me to be serious. but they said it helped them understand more about him!
on tuesday we had a district lunche at chipotle annnnd at night we had a lesson with c. His wife was baptized like a couple months ago and the missionaries have been teaching him for a while. but on tuesday we invited a member to come, and asked him to bring the mormon message “earthly father, heavenly father”. he ended up just recording it on his phone and he brought speakers and it was funny but woah was it good. me and hermana clanton talked with him and we talked about how this will totally bless his family and i dont really remember what else was said. but we watched the mormon message and it was super powerful. even though it was on such a small screen. he totally felt the spirit. a couple weeks ago we had asked him to pray about being baptized on feb 22 or mar 1st. so after the video, victor bore his testimony and i asked if he had prayed about a date. i was expecting him to say no. but then he was like tengo una sopressa. he picked feb 22nd!!!!! his wife was so happy and she like teared up and we were just like ahhh . good thing the table was there or else i might have tried to hug him hahha just kidding. but it was an awesome moment. c was super happy and so is everyone! the member we brought was baptized last year and he was able to relate to c. members are the best.
then on wednesday we went tracting like good lil missionaries and we knocked into a cool lady. it was so frigid and windy outside and she let us in and we taught some restoration and she invited us to someones birthday party, like either her son or grandson. and we invited her to the branch celebration….both of which were cancelled due to the snow. but we are going back tommroow to teach her more!!
yea so then on thursday morning we finally went running and loved it and then it started snowing during the day, apparently we werent supposed to drive, but no one told us. we tried to knock doors but it was bien frigid so we hit up a mexican tienda and just talked to people there and bought some giant cookies. by the time we were going home it had snowed a lot on our hill we live on so we had to take a detour and we barely made it up that! and then it just kept getting snowier. like on friday we couldnt really do anything execpt walk to the lounge and get hot chocolate.
saturday was the same but then at night we decided to try to walk down the hill. even though all our apartment neighbors were like nooo its too dangerous. it wasnt even bad but literally everything was covered in snow and then ice. like there was an inch of ice on everything! including the cars and the trees and our windows and the railing and then my coat.
yesterday church was cancelled hahhaha it was the weirdest. we went on a walk to see the s. fam and somehow i lost my tag 😦 and we walked to a members house to eat some dinner. but neither of us have like snowboots so it was super gross and wet. and like icicles were falling from all the trees. one hit my hand hahhaa when i took a picture and it bled. life is so good.
sorrry for so much snow talk. it was overwhelming and took up a majority of the week hahha but everything is getting better and i made some smoothies!
we played bananagrams and the english sisters words included: qween and avacodo. i wish i had started paying attention to her words sooner.
anyways during the snow days i didnt really feel like a missionary. it was the weirdest time ever. thanks for the invitation to evans eagle scout thing. it looks awesome.
r is probably getting baptized on saturday but we have to teach him a bunch of things like today and tomorrow cause we havent been able to see him in forever cause the snow. yayyy
i love you people. thanks for being such cool friends/family. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRISTAN ❤
