It's freezing here!

Howdy Ya’ll!

How’s the weather?  It’s freezing here.  Like, literally.  It’s 32 degrees outside today.  One night this week it got down to FOUR flippin’ degrees.  This weekend I hear it’s supposed to get down to -2.  Brrr! That’s Idaho for ya.  I think I’m getting acclimated because 32 degrees doesn’t sound or feel very cold to me anymore…Haha!

Because this week was transfers it was a bit crazy & adventurous.

Last Monday our zone participated in the Burley Light Parade!  We just sang Christmas songs & advertised #LIGHTtheWORLD.  It was like 19 degrees outside.  We could see the air coming out of our nostrils.

The rest of the week with Sis. Leach consisted of making visits to investigators, less-actives & members.  We had some awesome lessons.

One morning we walked down to the Snake River (right around the corner from our house) and discovered it was frozen over solid! That was crazy!

Thursday was transfer day and we had to drive to Twin Falls.  It was snowing a lil’ bit on the drive there.  While we were waiting it started snowing a lot more…By the time we left there was probably about 2 or 3 inches of snow that had fallen.  Here’s the scary part—I had to drive back to Burley (45 minute drive) in that snow storm!!  I ain’t never driven in snow, let alone on a highway during a snow storm!! But, we made it back safely.:-)  I’m kinda proud of myself for how well I am doing on the snowy, icy roads.

The rest of the weekend was fun, as Sis. Fitt is getting to know the people and area.  We had a wonderful lesson with Jackie & Brittnie—taught the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  They are so ready and excited to be baptized.  Brittnie says nothing is going to stop her—especially Satan! Haha

I still think it’s crazy that I hit my year mark.  I haven’t seen any of ya’ll friends or family for over a year now.  Like, woah! Life has been the best adventure this past year, though!

Ponderize: Alma 38:9
And now, my son, I have told you this that ye may learn wisdom, that ye may learn of me that there is no other way or means whereby man can be saved, only in and through Christ. Behold, he is the life and the light of the world. Behold, he is the word of truth and righteousness.

Anything—ALL things—are possible because of Jesus Christ.  Repentance is the way to access that salvation through Him. It is real. He is real. Let’s be real and use the Atonement of Jesus Christ!

From Idaho to you,
