When All Else Fails, Sing Hymns With Them

My favorite sign this week!
It's been a good week!  I finally got the chance to meet a lady that the missionaries have met with quite a bit in the past here.  She lives in Chloride, and told us that she used to live out in the middle of nowhere, but her sister convinced her to move to town so she would be safer.  The irony is that she considers Chloride town, and the entirety of Chloride is made up of about 5 streets. Her name is Pat and she's the definition of an ornery old woman.  I love her so much!  She's mostly blind, so we come by and read the Book of Mormon to her and teach her every once in a while. 

We had kind of a weird experience, but it was really cool!  We knocked on this door, and we were invited in very warmly!  It turned out that there was sort of a party going on.  There were four or five people from a few different churches drinking, smoking, and worshiping.  They invited us to join them for some worship, and we really couldn't decline politely, so we hung out and sung a few hymns while one of them played the guitar.  Definitely a different experience than what I'm used to, but it was kind of cool!

hanks for all of your support everyone!  I love you all!

Q&A - 1/18/16

1.) Did your weather warm up this week?  -- A bit. It's usually about 10 degrees colder in Dolan than in Las Vegas, but it's not too bad right now.

2.)  You mentioned that you got to go to Vegas for the baptism. Was your trip there specifically for that reason or did you get lucky with timing of a meeting of some sort and getting to attend the baptism was a big bonus? -- I went up just for the baptism! 

3.)  What are you looking forward to about the week ahead? -- This next week is going to be really crazy! We have to drive to Kingman 5 different times between exchanges and district councils and other meetings, so it's going to be interesting! should be fun though!

4.) Do you know how much you are loved? -- Always!
