Week 43 11/14/2010

Subject: brrr... its cold in here....

Hello there everyone!! How was everyones week!?! Sounds like amys meet was pretty good! Too much rock for one hand baby! Right ames!! Whats everyone else been up to?come on...gimme somethin... lol.

Well its startin to cold here and I don’t like it!! Sister felix and I went tracting yesterday and it started raining little balls of ice. Not big enough to be considered full on hail more like baby hail. And I thought my toes were gonna freeze so then we went over to the cheneys and laid on the couch under a heating blanket… it was nice. And its gonna get soooooo much colder! Theres supposed to be at least a couple ice storms this winter! I just have to think warm thoughts…lake powell!!! I don’t like how dark it gets so early in the afternoon now it makes it a lot harder to tract. People get so grumpy when you know on their door and its dark outside like they were sound asleep or something at 4:30 in the afternoon. Lol.

This week was long! We didn’t tract very much this week but we had a lot of lessons. We had a very blunt but really good lesson with ted and had sister meyer there with us. Sister meyer used to be Methodist like ted so they got along really well. Ted loves everything we taught him and he knows its true but he’s being a stubborn old man and says that he knows what his answers going to be if he prays about it but as long he doesn’t pray then he doesn’t know it for sure so he claims he doesn’t have to do anything about it if he doesn’t know for sure. That’s just called procrastination and denial.

Tuesday the Onkens (family in our branch) took us to davenport for dinner at red robin…yumm!!! And their daughter brought her friend kara that we’ve seen a couple times. I love them, they’re awesome!! Brother Onken actually served in the sacramento mission and loomis was his first area! Small mormon world!

Friday afternoon sister jergensen came out with sister felix and I and went to a couple lessons with us. We had a lesson with the green family which we tracted into a couple weeks ago and had 2 lessons with them so far. They’re such a cool family. The parents are todd and tracy and they have a little girl named Mariah (8 yrs old). Todd takes such good care of his family. He works 12 hour shifts 5 days a week and takes care of Tracy who has epilepsy, and then their little girl Mariah they adopted. When she was 4 months old her birth father shook her and ruined all 4 parts of her brain so she’s pretty much a “vegetable” but she is the cutest thing! Oh my gosh I love her! She has the cutest smile when you make weird noises the she likes! Awesome family! So Friday afternoon when we were there we were in the middle of teaching the plan of salvation and tracy had a seizure so ended up leaving alittle bit after that so tracy could go to bed. But it was a really good lesson up to that point. And they’ve both been reading the book of mormon. After that we took sister jergensen to meet Arlene (the 98 yr old) and then after that we took sister jergensen to davenport meet president jergensen and we ended up going to the food court at the mall for dinner with pres and sister jergensen and our zone leaders. So that was a lot of fun with them! Oh and I meant to tell you that president jergensen went to the same mission that trevors goin to except it was a lot bigger back then. He served most of his one the Indian reservation and spoke Navajo near the 4 corners.

Well that was about it for last week but this week we have sisters conference on Thursday in Nauvoo with president and sister jergensen. We get to spend the whole day pretty much in Nauvoo. We’re gonna have the conference in the morning, doing I have no idea but then we get to go to do a session at the temple after lunch. Im excited!!! Since we have to meet the van in iowa city at 7 Thursday morning I talked to P.J and he said we could stay the night at a members house in iowa city so we’re gonna be staying at the elzingas that night and I get to see anna!! Im soo excited! I miss them so bad! But I love it here too! I love iowa!

Well that’s about it for me! What about you guys!? I love you all and I hope you have an awesome week! And I hope yours is warmer than mine will be!!

Till next time

Sister C
