Where do I even start? This week we met a new investigator named Autumn. Me and my last companion met her out on the street a few weeks ago walking her dog! We hit if off and she asked us to come back in a few weeks after her wedding and "hang out". Haha so we did :) She was so excited to see us and invited us right in. Eventually the conversation turned to the gospel. We talked about God and how He is our loving Heavenly Father. She just started crying...we asked her what she was feeling and she just kept talking about how she felt a weight lifted off of her shoulders :) Everyone pray for Autumn.
We got in with a less active member from Liberia haha she made us try some of her ginger beer  and we both tried so hard to choke it down haha are throats were one fire. But she was SO nice.
Yesterday it snowed and snowed and then rained some ice. I was sliding all over the place ( walking not driving don't worry) we weren't allowed to drive the cars and church got canceled so we walked around and helped people shovel! It was tons of fun and we met a lot of new people. We were able to watch the christmas devotional last night and I got to hear from my favorite apostle Elder Russel M. Nelson.
But...I think my favorite thing that happened this week, happened many miles away from where I was. In the Bountiful temple on December 5th at 8 a.m. (10 a.m. my time) My paka and grandma were sealed in the temple! What a special day. I am so grateful for the knowledge we all have of the restored gospel and that families can be together forever. I am grateful for them and there sacrifice to be there. I am so grateful to my parents, that decided years ago that they wanted something more. That they didn't want to settle for anything less than forever.
I love you all!
