Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow ...Week 25 in Monroe

     Preparation day was great. It was Elder Clement and Elder Gittens last one. We played lots of hacky sack and then went to a members to play games. That evening we saw out investigator (M) and we also took possession of the north Elders Ford Escape because we are taking over all of Monroe. It was a very crazy day!
     Tuesday was even more crazy. All morning and in to the early afternoon we moved our stuff into the north apartment, all in the car. It was also raining and it took a while. Then after that we spent the time reorganising the apartment and setting it up for us so we could at least focus in the apartment. Later that evening we took our couch from the old apt to a recent converts home because we were not in need of it anymore.

     Wednesday we travelled  to Riverview, about a 19 miles car ride or 30 km for the people who dont know miles. After that we hurried back to have a lesson with our investigator (K) who is on date for baptism this coming Saturday. It will be an even crazier week now.

     Thursday was bell ringing day (going door to door) It was a cold one, it was like 24ºF (-5ºC) outside but with wind it was chilly,  but we had lots of fun. We had dinner then our appointments fell through so we contacted instead.

     Friday was more bell ringing in the afternoon. Later we stopped by someone who we have had trouble getting a visit with, we had a great visit and read a chapter from the Book Of Mormon with her it was great. Then that evening we went to our ward mission leaders home for correlation. So, in general a constant busy day, it was great. Still NO snow! 

     Saturday we went down south in the area and went into Kroger and I think everyone in the town was there all shopping for the "Storm" That night they were calling for 7-9 Inches. In the afternoon we contacted and that evening we saw our recent convert.

     Sunday we woke up to like 2 inches but it was still coming down so we prepared for church and we called a member to see if he could bring someone to church for us and he said he and his wife are not happy with the amount of snow so they are going to stay home... so I guess ... Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow. When we left for church we got on to the main road and wow ...and there was no snow... just like little bit of slush! After sacrament and all like 60 who showed up, the bishop cancelled the rest due to lack of people. I guess maybe 3 inches of snow and clear roads is a big deal, its a lot different here then home. This evening we had close to 6 inches but still the roads were not to bad. 

Have a great week all!
Lots of Love
Elder Rodgers
