ya so when we woke up this morning we checked the weather and it said it was 18 degrees outside and we looked in the parking lot and there was ice on all the cars. Haha it was freezing and its the coldest it has been all winter, the weather here is weird. so this week was pretty sweet on tuesday at our District meeting I read them all the part in your email last week dad where you talked about how far I am in my mission and how it feels to be out this long and afterward elder wilcock who is going home in a month said "thanks for reading that I really need it" I knew it was going to inspire our district and we needed some inspiration and we doubled the numbers we had this week in every catagory as a district combined, and I know it is because we have some experience and hard working elders in our district now and we had more faith and focused on hitting our goals, we had a goal for 9 people at church as a district and we got 7 which was way better then last week, even though me and elder north were the only ones to not have someone at church. Anyways we had a great week and elder law was so happy on the phone last night he was like "what did you do man? whatever it is keep doing it" ya it made me happy too. we also had a sweet lesson with a less active on wednesday after coordination and we brought our RM assistant ward mission leader went with us (he is also the stake presidents son and he is super cool, reminds me of dylan) and the less active invited his 2 friends over for the lesson cause they had questions about deep doctrine stuff mostly hahah it was fun, we all learned lots of stuff the one friend jason who had most of the questions and the other miriam who was agirl just kind of listened the whole time but Robert who is the less active started having epiphany's during the lesson and was teaching his friend haha it was so cool and Robert has been studyin and praying and has received answers to his prayers its really cool to see him progress, tonight we are teaching them all again tonight the restoration so that should be awesome since jason said that all his questions revolved around why there are so many church's on the earth haha we were like well we will tell you next time haha so ya it was really cool.
