Well to start off with weather was crazy this past week. It SNOWED four days out of the week. None of it stuck but still, SNOW! That was pretty cool but also really crazy. Another huge thing that happened was that our investigator, K, came to church for the first time! It was super cool to finally have someone come to church for the first time. She really enjoyed it. She was a bit nervous in the beginning but a sister in the ward took it upon herself to fellowship her and off they went! We didn't even have to say anything! It was awesome.
This week will be a bit hard to write about just for the fact it was a regular missionary week. We didn't have anything crazy go on, well I mean some crazy things happened while tracting but I can't really tell you about those haha. No events or anything this past week so it was just a normal week of contacting, tracting, and just being a missionary. Sharing the best message in the world, to the worldly, to save them from the world. But it is great to be a missionary and it may be super hard but it is all worth it even when someone just takes a pass along card. You feel like you've done something. But overall this past week was good, no crazy stories though...
Personal study was awesome this week. Yes I know it's a lot of scriptures but it's God's word so you can't get enough of it!

Also I read Elder Renlund's talk this week. Part of the Swedish Christmas carol he sand stood out to me:
Jesus, we need Thee,
Thou dear children's Friend.
I no longer wish to grieve Thee
With my sins again.
He also said, "Whatever our current direction or distance to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, we can choose to turn toward Them and draw closer to Them." We are never too far from the Savior and Heavenly Father to turn back. You are never too far gone for the Savior's love to reach you. They love you and They want you to come home to Them. I love you all and have a great week!
