No Snow But Cold Days ....Week 29 in Monroe

     Last Monday was great! We went with some members to the Calder Dairy. It is a farm when they make the best products, expensive though. We fed some goats and then saw some animals and wow did it ever smell nasty! The members where so kind as to buy  some chocolate milk for me and some eggnog for my companion and some ice cream also! Then we went to their home to play some games. It was the best preparation day we have had in a while, then on the 16th he is taking us to the auto show in Detroit! It will be sweet. Later that evening we saw our recent convert. 

     Today we emailed home this morning and after we had lots of time to find so we did. That evening we went and dropped off cookies to a less active family who had a 9 year old daughter who is not baptized and they want to start to come back and have her baptized so that really cool.

     Wednesday morning it was freezing like,  9ºF (-13ºC) with some wind which was so cold. We travelled to district meeting and that went great. Later that afternoon we were walking downtown and asked this couple if we could help them carry their grocery's, we did and that night we went back and had a great lesson with him about the restoration. It was super cool, he felt the spirit and it was awesome. That evening we had dinner at a members home, KFC with some mac and cheese! It was great, they are a great family. 

     Thursday we did lots of former's, we went through our book and took out the ones who we believe need to be visited again so that was good. We found a little bit of success so far. Then some finding time that afternoon. 

     Friday we had three appointments set up and we had three appointments fall through but one reschedule for  Sunday. Then some talking to people outside. It's still freezing while we are outside talking to people the humidity is like always 70-80%  so that is like the wind chill at home, it feels much colder the it really is! We had dinner tonight with a member and then drove to correlation that evening. 

     Saturday there was no snow but it was a cold day. We stopped by someone but figured out they were most likely locked up, and then our lesson that afternoon rescheduled for next week. We had a lesson with a less active and that went well. He told us that he had decided that he needs to actually start reading the book of Mormon. We did some finding after our dinner. 

     Church was great. Our recent convert (F) got up to bear his testimony. It was short and very powerful. After we had to drive half an hour to dinner where we had Mexican... upon our request. It was great! Then we had a lesson with a new investigator (T) and that went great and then another lesson with an investigator (J). We took our recent convert with us and he was able to help our investigator with some of the word of wisdom questions he had. 

It was a great week,  just cold,  but the weather this week is forecasting it to be above 32ºF with a high of 50ºF (0-10ºC) so lets pray that's true!

I love you all happy new year!
