March 21, 2016

This has been a long week, especially since Nebraska decided it wasn't actually done with winter yet, so the temperature went back to the 20s and 30s and we had snow 2 days ago. But it should be getting warm again this week. (Everyone was saying, "This is what March weather should actually be like!" And I was by myself saying, "I thought 70s and 80s in March was normal . . . ") We're still struggling with finding investigators, but we found some awesome potentials and got some solid referrals from members so this week should be way better!
On Friday, we were showing the #hallelujah video to a member (we visited like literally half of the active members this week and showed them the video, it was great) and as we were leaving we asked if she knew anyone in the neighborhood that she thought could use this Easter message. (We ask this every time we leave a member's house, and usually they just tattle on the neighbors they aren't particularly fond of.) So she told us that the neighbors next door are hardcore Catholics and the other neighbors are cranky and she was like, "Sorry sisters, there's just nobody I know who -- wait . . . There is one person . . . don't mention my name, because I work with him, but he and his wife lost one of their children as a newborn and I think this might touch them. And they actually live just down the street around the corner." It was SO COOL to see the Spirit just stop her and remind her of her co-worker. We haven't been able to get in contact with them yet because they're never home when we try them, but we're really excited to meet them.
I just can't get over how awesome the new Easter video is. I know I shared it last week, but here's a link if you haven't seen it, and if you have seen it you should just watch it again.
Oh and TRANSFERS is this Wednesday. So we'll find out what's happening either tonight or tomorrow morning. I know that something is going to happen because Sister Munger and I know we won't stay together another transfer. We shall see.

"No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude, and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called the children of God . . . and it is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we came here to acquire and which will make us more like our Father and Mother in heaven." ~Spencer W. Kimball
