Settling in, Snow and Science

Hey there!! Guess what?!? It snowed last night!

Yup. Real snow! It's so cold! But it's melting slowly and supposed to "warm up" again this week. We'll seen! It's been a wild week for us! I don't have a ton of time because we have correlation in an hour and it takes half an hour to get there!  Anyway! My week!

We won't talk about what happened on Tuesday...

Wednesday we had district meeting and our district tried to single-handedly fix our was a nice thought haha! We went to lunch and then to a Less Active's house, RaeAnn. We tried our darnedest to help her out but I don't think she thought she needed help. We then went over to Mary's house and taught her and her grand-daughter, Kim. Kim wasn't super engaged so we might not be teaching her directly. She is only 16 so it might take some time. Afterwards we had dinner at the Rambo's. It was a tad awkward until after dinner. Dad, I hope you are sitting down (; We went down into the "Man Cave" and there were guns on every single wall. And not just guns, but old ones with a lot of history. One was used by the Indian Police. Brother Rambo got it when he went hunting in the Dakotas. Two Indian Prospectors came up to him and "bargained" with him. The gun for the remaining of his provisions (he was going home the next day). He agreed because his provisions was 5 gallons of water, 5 gallons of gasoline, and some Spam. The gun is worth over $3,000. I think he won. Haha! But the rest of his guns were super cool, if you are in to that sort of thing haha! We left and went to our Ward mission leader's house for a FHE night but we were kinda late because of our dinner appointment. It was a crazy day.

Thursday, we had to get our oil changed and that took 2 hours! Goodness gracious. We then went to teach Vicki. When she asked us what we would be talking about, she didn't want to talk about the Restoration. So I basically had to pick a random scripture to please her. She ended up liking what we shared. Which was a plus haha! We then visited Lorraine, another less active. She talked and talked and talked. People from Pennsylvania like to chit chat a lot haha! Her grandson, Julian, isn't a member so we may start teaching him. He's 8 and really sweet and smart. We had dinner at the Green's. They are a SUPER cool family!! Their 2nd oldest is deaf and she is so smart! We had a great time with them. After dinner we went to an active members house and tried to get to know her a little bit.

Friday was weekly planning. For some reason it takes EONS here! Goodness gracious. We did go and visit Char to kinda break it up. She is amazing! She has an awesome dog, Sheba. She is part Pitt bull. I'm not a huge dog person, but Sheba is cool haha! We talked with her about tithes and offering and it went super well. Friday night we had another dinner appointment and then had to run home for exchanges. (turns out..I don't like brussel sprouts haha!)

Saturday was a CRAZY day for us! The Green's invited us to come play Ultimate Frisbee with them and some non-member friends to build a foundation. It was SO much fun! It's been a really long time and I'm still super sore haha! After that, Sister Walborn (a sister Training Leader) and I went and tried some Less Actives. We met a guy named Steve. He told us that he was actually in Pitt 2nd ward and they had offended him about 4 years ago. He had decided to leave the church and only believe in science. But as he did that he said, "Science will never disprove God. Only confirm Him". Everywhere he turned, it pointed him back to the church. We are going to meet with him this Saturday and hopefully get him back to church! After we tracted for a little bit, we went to the Biernesser's for dinner and then to the Adult Session of Stake Conference (again). It was pretty good, but I still don't know anyone.

Sunday was Stake Conference. We ended up sitting next to one of the counselors in the Mission Presidency, President Nobbs. It was kinda weird haha! I've never met him before d: After the conference, we studied then tried some less actives then headed to our dinner appointment. The Elders were there too and the family made us feel super uncomfortable because Sister Larsen had to sit by the Elders...not ok haha! We had perrogies again! SUPER DELICIOUS!!!!! (: basically pasta, mashed potatoes and onions and cheese. SO GOOD. We then got to meet with another active member Lisa. She is a sweet heart and says she wants to have us over for dinner so we can watch the "Living Scriptures" cartoons. Remember those?? haha! SO excited.

So that was our week! Pretty mundane and average but it was good! We are already in week 4 and I can hardly believe it! I hope you all are doing well!! Stay strong PLEASE!!! Trust God. He knows what He is doing. Better than any of us! Until next week! (:
