Family History Connections!

Transfers happened! But nothing too big changed. We got a new Elder replacing Elder Ruth. His name is Elder Grifith. He's funny so that is good! And Sister Smith and Brimhall are still in the city so we can still see each other here and there! YAY!!!! It's finally snowing here in Winnipeg! I'm so excited!! It looks SOOO pretty!! Makes me so excited for Christmas!! The only thing that is a bummer is this transfer is only 5 weeks instead of 6 and next transfer is 7 weeks. they do that so the missionaries going home can be home for Christmas. But that means I could be transferred and in a new area a week before Christmas. I hope I stay! I love this ward. I've already been here for 6 months! I hit my half way mark in a couple days! AH!! It's crazy.

We have been very blessed this week and were able to find a few new investigators! One couple we found through family history! We were shopping a couple p-days ago and were in line to buy our groceries. The man in-front of us looks at our KD and bananas and laughs while stating that we must be living on our own haha. Perfect way to break the ice! So we chatted and turns out his grandfather was a member of the church and he told us about how he has been wanting to find information about his life and history on his mom. FAMILY HISTORY!!! So we told him to come on by the church and set up a time with the family history specialist in the ward. Then we were able to go to there house to deliver more information that was found by a wonderful member. They were thrilled and happily accepted the offer to learn more about the church! I love when people say yes. hahaha. Feels right. So we have started to teach them and it's great!!!

Our members here are so fantastic. We have been baking cookies, drinking hot cocoa, putting up lights, and feeling the Christmas spirit! Lets get the count down on already!!!

It's been a really great week.  So I was praying a lot to figure out how I can be more focused and then I felt prompted to study more! We have an hour for lunch and an hour for dinner.. but we don't normally eat lunch and dinner is a blur haha we just have so much to do!! But apparently it can do more harm then good to run faster then we have strength. No wonder we are feeling so down and drained!! So we are making sure we take the time to relax at lunch and dinner and study! I have been reading my scriptures and "Jesus The Christ" during those hours and wow what a difference!! I feel so much better!! Not only our we properly feeding our bodies but our spirits too! DUH!! haha I don't know why I didn't do this before haha. But anyhow.. its the best! I feel so light and filled with the spirit!!

I love you all so much!! Hope you enjoy the snow and drink some nice hot cocoa!!!
