"Well, this week was great... we got moved on Tuesday, then Wednesday trough Saturday we were in trainings with the leaders all day from 8 to 5 each day.. it was really good we learned a ton .. we learned about the importance of the atonement and we now have to talk about the atonement in EACH lesson no matter what we are talking about... its actually really cool i can see the difference in my teaching... Saturday we worked really hard but still weren’t able to find too many people.. so Saturday night we prayed and told Heavenly Father that we had done all we could and we asked for a miracle... .. well we got it!!! We arrived at the church to an attendance of 148(we average about 80) and 10 new investigators in church.. even though not all of them live in our area, it was still awesome! so we are stoked for this week to start teaching some of them.. it was the primary program that brought so many people, so we were stoked... the Lord almost always gives us our righteous desires... and we need it cuz our area is seriously struggling right now... it has always been a tough area... actually it was closed to missionaries for like a year cuz it never baptized... but we are going to change that...

so its weird to think that its already Thanksgiving again... lol then before we know it, it will be Christmas again and I will be calling home... ha-ha the mission flies by... so yeah this week we are going to work our like crazy cuz the president is not happy with the efforts of the mission right now... the church has raised the bar again for new missionaries and also their expectations for us that are already here.... and they are sending missionaries home for practically nothing - the attitude of the church is now "work or go home" so yeah hopefully it will get us to work even harder... well that’s about it... just enjoying our new house, and trying to find people

That’s funny about your blizzard and snow - cuz its been unusually hot here... i miss snow a lot!! lol"
