Hey everybody!

It feels like I just sent out an email just a few days ago! It is probably because it was only a few days ago since I have sent one out! Not too much has happened within the last couple of days. I will get into telling you about my week a little bit!

After we got done emailing on Wednesday, we had to get back out to work. We had some older women call and ask for our help shoveling them out so we were able to go and help them out, even though it was a pretty far drive just to shovel out two people. But it was worth it! Service is always worth it! I will tell you what though, I (Along with every single person I have talked to in Maine) is looking forward to and ready for some warmer weather! After the storm this past week the temperatures have been dropping between like 5-25 degrees, so it has been nice and cold too! We might be getting another snow storm this week as well, so we might have to wait a little longer for the warmer weather!

On Thursday afternoon, after we had taken care of some planning, I felt like we should go and visit one of the investigators that we had met in the snow on Tuesday, Jack. So we went out walking in that direction and while we were walking we looked down into a parking lot and saw Joe and his kids. Joe and Jennifer were some investigators that we have been trying to get ahold of to teach them again, but haven't been able to. So we went over and talked to them. I am pretty sure I have told you guys about them before, but they have three kids who are like the cutest and coolest. Joe was outside shoveling some ice, so we decided to help him out. After a while of shoveling and only a little small talk (Joe isn't that talkative) he finally asked, "How long did it take for you to finish the Book of Mormon?" That was a really relieving question because that means that they have been reading!! We told him that we didn't expect him to finish it anytime soon, but he just needed to read and pray about it. We set up a return appointment and then headed out. We didn't actually get to go and see Jack like we intended, but it is amazing how God works. Because even though we thought we were going to be there to see Jack, He knew that we were there to see Joe! That was a really big blessing to be able to see Joe and his family! Unfortunately this story doesn't have a happy ending at the moment, because they messaged us the next day and said that they didn't want to meet with us anymore. That is really tough because I have grown to love them, even in the short amount of time that I get to know them. I hope that they can keep reading the Book of Mormon and want to meet again sometime!

Another eventful thing that happened this past week was on Saturday. We did a St. Patrick's day booth with the sisters in the ward. We got two new sisters in our ward as well this week because of transfers. We put up a little stand that says "What are you lucky for?" And then had people write what they were lucky for and then talked to them about that as well as the gospel! And we handed out cookies which made it even better!

Well I think that is about it for me this week! I know that even in the hard times (whether missionary work or just life), we need keep following God's path that he has for you! As we strive to become more Christ-like and align our will with His, then we will be able to have joy! I love you all and I hope that you have a fantastic week!
