Winter's not dead! (Week 76)

It has snowed every weekend for the past 3 weeks! Its been insane. It just needs to be spring. Surprisingly church has not been cancelled once this whole winter, wind, snow, ice, or hail the work goes on!

John is doing awesome! Last Tuesday we took Bishop over to his house and arranged his baptismal program. John picked out the hymns, the members who he wanted to speak, and members to preform the baptism and confirmation. His father in law will be preforming the confirmation. This is going to strengthen his family 10 fold. We are so excited. We are going over tonight. He will be baptized on Saturday March 7th at 7:00 pm.

So for Karri... we dropped the word of wisdom and the law of chastity on her last week. Don't worry it wasn't in the same visit. I think her mind would have exploded. She still has a few things she struggles with so we are going to give her some more time to prepare. Her baptism date has been postponed for now. She has been coming to our Book of Mormon class and she loves it! It's so fun to watch her learn and grow. Pray for her!

We started teaching a new family this week! The B~ Family. They were referred to us by the Johnson family just before they moved. Christy is from Texas and Blake is from Louisiana (he is very Cajun, so awesome). They met with missionaries two years ago that gave them a Book of Mormon but they never came back. They had a lot of questions about the Book of Mormon that never got answered. Since the Johnson's moved the B~'s have volunteered to feed us every Sunday in place of the Johnson's. We had dinner in their home yesterday and had some of the greatest steak I've had in a long while. After dinner we shared the message of the restoration of the gospel. No doubt is was one of the best lessons of the transfer. The spirit was so strong. All four of their teenage boys were participating and answering questions. It is so hard to teach kids sometimes but it was perfect! They understood everything. At the end of the message we answered their questions and gave them their own copies of the Book of Mormon. They are excited to read and build their faith. At the end we asked, "when would be a good time for us to come back and share another message?" Their boy Arron said, "Tuesday" with a smile. Blake and Christi looked at each other and said, "the sooner the better, Tuesday works great." I love being a missionary.

Thank you for all of your support! This coming week should be good. Today we are driving to Enid for zone p-day. Pray for us there is still a little ice on the roads and the sisters are driving ;) HAHA. I
