SNOW!!! It won't be long before we'll all be there!!
It's been quite a "Slick" week for us. The weather has been crazy! One day its nice and warm, then the next its dropped 20 degrees and we have freezing rain. Rain falls and freezes instantly when it hits the ground, and it has made walking more like ice skating.
But through the stormy weather, Nick was Baptized and is doing soo well :) He has grown soo much in this gospel, and loves the church. He has a lot of potential in this church.
The Christmas season has made the work slow here in Iowa. So theres really not much to tell, we're finding new people to teach and continue to trust in the Lord.
In the movie, Prophet of the Restoration, Joseph Smith says to man "Sometimes the Lord has to bring you low, before He can take you High" And That is something that has stuck with me. My companion says that that is probably my catch phrase :) That, or "Stumbling Blocks, or Stepping Stones" :)
All is well!!!!! :) I love you all. Merry Christmas and happy New Year.
