Jared was excited that they got some snow in Alabama. "YEA!!! we got snow!!!! I was so pumped. It snowed most of Friday and stayed till Saturday afternoon. We got about an inch and a half. That's a lot for Alabama. We had a huge snowball fight with the Ellis family. Elder Scheitinger and I totally dominated, it was hilarious. Then we made a snow man with them. It was a ghetto snow man, with the flat brimmed hat and all. haha. We also had a snowball fight with the Sanford's and made a snowman with them. It was a great day."
Jared didn't get transferred which was nice - maybe he will get to finish out in Bessemer. "YAY!!! I didn't want to go. I want to see the rest of the Ellis family join the church. Leon's baptism is this Saturday his mom decided he should go ahead and get baptized. He was waiting for her to quit smoking but she keeps relapsing. She is extremely addicted to cigarettes. I haven't had an investigator so addicted before. She is down to about 1 every 2-3 days. So she is improving. She just gets stressed out and gets one. It's super tough. She is going to quit though, I know it. Her baptismal date is for March 6th."
"At church on Sunday we had Barbara, Miss Wayne, and Santana come. It was awesome. Three new investigators YAY!! We have a huge teaching pool right now all we gotta do now is just seal the deal with our investigators, commit them to be baptized. We are going to have a lot of success this transfer. The bible study class is a great idea and I think it will attract a lot of people. The work just keeps getting more and more exciting and intense!!! I love it."
"This weekend is going to be sweet. All the young men from the stake are coming to Bessemer and for a couple of hours are going to do the survey in our area. I'm glad we are in the stake center's area. They are expecting around 50 young men. That adds up to about a weeks amount of tracting. whoo hooo!!! We should get a lot of referrals. So we are super excited."
I can't believe that it is almost time for us to fly out there and pick him up. It is so nice having a missionary out that I wish he could stay another year (well, maybe not).
Remember when I blogged? - Yeah, me neither. Lately every time I blog the subject matter is exactly the same: I used to blog and now I don't but I'm definitely going to restart. An...
