anywho. Had a really good week this week.
We had our first snow-fall of the year! so of course my companion and I had to play in it for a while. We were waiting for our dinner to come pick us up and she drove up and we were in the middle of a snowball fight.. it was really embarrassing. I'll send some pictures.
We had an i n t e r e s t i n g visit with an investigator who had some visitors. We stopped in to see how she was doing and her husband had some buddies over for a few beers. Well half way through our conversation in the kitchen (the guys were in the living room) one of them comes into the kitchen and decides to join our conversation (with beer in hand of course). Long story short, he's talked to missionaries before "but never to such beautiful ones"--HIS WORDS, not mine... so while that continued for a while and we felt incredibly awkward our investigator was finding out from this guy that we don't smoke or drink or have coffee... and that was a wonderful mess to try and clean up. oh the joys of being a sister missionary.
Something I learned this week was that temptations can hit anyone at any time. Watching investigators struggle and trying to find ways to help them we found out that satan is working just as hard with us. Both of us are so close to being done and the more consecrated we try to be the harder satan hits. It's been amazing to see how what we study and teach isn't just for our investigators, it's for us too. Though the temptations may be different, the distance it takes us from heaven is the same. We all have struggles, we all have weaknesses, but all these can be turned in to strengths if we use heaven's help to overcome.
I Love you all. I hope you look for ways to over come temptations with the simple but powerful tool of the gospel.
Have a wonderful week!
