Missions are Great!

Shalom Everyone!
I don't have a lot of time today so I'll just say this week was great (well duh) and cold (well duh) and i've been frozen and thawed more times than you could imagine.
This week ALL of our plans fell through, like maybe 2 appointments worked out the entire week. But 3 people told me that my Russian was really good (aw) and then I gave a talk in church and they all took it back. Just kidding! They all told me I was doing great haha. It was way bad. My branch president was laughing most of the time and told me that he "learned a couple new Russian words" because I just had the hardest time. I still struggle with the language but I mean its Russian! I am so grateful for the gift of tongues though. Its so real! Sorry this is so short but i guess this week I was just so grateful for the little things. When were wandering around and looking for a house of a less active member, we ran into these cute puppies and then another time we were stuck on this miserable bus that was loud and smelly and so squished and then someone dropped their pin and sister Melton picked it up and it said "USA" and we laughed and laughed. God is looking out for us! Even in the hardest times he helps our lives be joyful!
LOVE YOU ALL!!!
Sister Wilcox
