Stay Positive...and Don't Let the Little Things Get You Down!

Hey there family and friends!

This week was super crazy busy - but totally worth it(:

To start it all off...IT SNOWED!! AH FINALLY! I was SUPER excited and was just running around haha. It totally felt like Christmas all over again(:

This week we didn't let any snow or gypsies or anything hold us back - we had a TON of lessons and just worked really with all we had. But was so good and cool about it was that we worked super super hard, but we also had a TON of fun(:

For example it was like a full out blizzard so we headed out with our scarves and gear and we make it like 30 feet out the door when my bag totally breaks. Past the point of no return haha and it was only just the start. So we headed back home and got another bag and tried to start out again - but we both ended up falling down the stairs haha ah it was rough - but we just picked ourselves back up and kept heading out(:

We ended up having an awesome lesson with a less active that went really well about the Savior - but as we got up to leave - and started to walk down the hill to the bus stop - we totally slipped and fell again right after the Jehovahs witness'  church at the bottom of that hill got out of their weekday service. It was brilliant hahaha and of course they TOTALLY knew who we were so that made it even more of a sweet experience haha(: They just kept shouting "Mormonii" and shaking their heads - but Sora Wyatt and I were just laughing our heads off haha - it was so fun(:

So our day just kept going like this - slipping and falling and drunk people and gypsies and it was a day that was just...rough and discouraging. But what was super cool is that even though we both knew that it was a rough day, we did our best to have fun and turn it around into a positive thing(:

And it was so worth it(: Later that night we had a lesson with one of our main progressing investigators named Corina. AH SHE IS A ROCKSTAR! She is 25 and seriously is such a tender mercy! She has had 3 lessons with us this week and has read 41 pages in the Book of Mormon! ITS SO COOL! We had a super powerful, Spirit-filled lesson about how God has a plan for each and every one of us - and how we can receive inspiration and power and guidance through the Book of Mormon. We are going to try and set a baptismal date with her this week so be sure to keep her in your prayers as well.

Anyways - after this lesson Sora Wyatt and I were talking about how amazing that lesson went - and how important it really is to just stay positive and not let the little things get you down. I really truly think that if we had let the snow and all the things that had happened that day take a tole on us - we really wouldn't have been as positive or as strong in the lesson that we had with Corina that night.

So don't worry - be happy!(:  I sure love you guys! Have a great week!
