It is so cold here in Ohio! It has been snowing and it's been in the 20-30's during the day! Crazy! I have pulled out all my winter clothes and I have been layering up! I have my boots, leggings, gloves, etc...It's been staying pretty warmish. This week was a pretty weird one. Ha-ha... We taught a lot of our Recent Convert and Less Actives this week because some of our investigators are being lame and are sick! That is what isn't fun about this season everyone is sick and it is hard to get a hold of people. But they are still awesome!
We have had some amazing miracles this week though! We had a member referral named Ronnie and he is this way chill black guy. Well we tried going to see him and he set up a return appointment but then he wasn't there when we went back. Usually that means they just ditched us. Well we called him and he didn't want to set up another appt. but he wanted the church address. So I gave it to him not really thinking more about it. Well Sunday he just shows up to church! It was sweet! He loved church so much that he wants to learn more now to! It's awesome!
And not to mention we walk into the library today and this guy is like, are they Mormons. We just kept walking because he said it weirdly and to his friends. Well after we sit down he comes up to us and wants to set up an appointment to learn more! Just tiny little miracles here and there! We have so much potential in this area still I hope that I get to stay for Christmas! I would love that! But in the attitude of Transfers you say... I will go where you want me to go dear Lord!
I started popping my knuckles again:( It's lame! The guy I was doing it with called it off and all my motivation was gone! I am still kind of trying but it's not working so well.
That's fun that Lance came over for dinner and was able to play games with you! Do you like him enough for him to be your son in law? ha-ha... and of course I want him there for Christmas! I did get another electric blanket.. It's a really pretty blue and it's so warm! It makes it hard to get out of bed. I did get the package you sent last week! Thanks for the triples and the ensign! The scripture case is also perfect because it's Abby's birthday next week and we are having a little party for her and I really wanted to get her something! So that's perfect! Thanks! Transfer calls are on Wednesday and so if I get transferred maybe I will have Sister Rickard send you a text of something. But we will see.. I hope I don't go! I would love to be here with the members I know and my recent converts! It's always so hard leaving an area because you have really come to love the people! I am excited to call home for Christmas! But I don't know what time I will be calling. It depends what area I am in and who's house we call from.
I didn't get an appointment to have my eyes checked. I forgot to tell you the truth I will call Sister Jensen today. I did get a chance to watch the Christmas Devotional last night. We went to the Titensors and watched it in their theater room with homemade popped popcorn! It was a fun evening! Their family reminds me a lot of ours. They have 2 sons Ben and Sam and they remind me a lot of Zack and Brigham! I don't know what companion I will be with for Christmas. Sister Loosli's family asked what they could get me today also. I thought that was funny. But probably just a little stocking, something generic depending on who I have. I will be able to tell you this week maybe through a member emailing or texting you.
Well... Crazy but time is already up! I love you very very much and I hope that you have an amazing day and week!
Love, Sister Madison Whitney
