Oh my goodness everyone!!! IT SNOWED!!!!!! For like 3 hours and you can’t see any evidence of it, but nevertheless IT SNOWED!!!!!! It has gotten to quite the bitter cold over here in the windy Vienna haha It sort of reminds me of winter in Sachse, TX haha You can deal with the cold, but then you add the intense winds that cut the cold straight to the bone xD That’s when it gets to you xD Do you want to know what else is pretty awesome from this week?? Our lessons with Masoud and Milad!!!!! They are totally brothers and they are both investigating the church! They both are on different levels, for example, Milad totally knows who God is and has a great relationship with him, and Masoud is still working out on finding who God is. It is so incredible to have seen them both grow over the course of just this week! Masoud asked us how to pray the other day and We were just so excited to tell him and it was just so much happiness all at once! He wasn’t just saying that he doesn’t know who God is, but he is wanting to create that relationship with God and find out for himself who God is! Then in another lesson, we asked Milad how he was doing in his reading the Book of Mormon, and he had read 1 and 2 Nephi! He had stuff highlighted and he was telling us that he will most likely be baptized earlier than January 22!!! That was just so great!!! These guys are so great!! We are thinking that Milad is going to get baptized soon and then he will baptize Masoud 🙂 That would be so special!!! They also both came to church and they were just so lit up and happy! They could not stop smiling!!! It has been a very special week 🙂 OH WAIT!!!! I totally just realized that I haven’t said anything about my new companion xD Sister Jones is absolutely amazing!! She is from South Weber, Utah! She is absolutely so great!!! It is funny because with her I don’t feel like I am training a brand new Golden from the MTC… I feel like I am greenie busting again xD She is so great 🙂 We have been working really hard at becoming Masters of the Message this week! We have gotten like everything memorized except for the scriptures for the lesson points, but that is our focus next week! We literally quiz each other every chance we get! We have been working so hard at helping Sister Jones to get up the courage to say just one or two sentences to someone on the train:) It reminds me of when I was fresh on the mission! I was absolutely TERRIFIED out of my mind!!! But I’ve noticed that the more I do it, the less terrified I am! Face your fears! Satan only puts them there in front of your face in order to try to stop you doing what you have been called to do! But yea, this week was a really really great week 🙂 I hope you all had a really great week as well!! Also, I updated some stuff on my blog! Go and check the “About” section on my blog! I added some stuff on there for any ideas if some one you are wanting to send me packages but are having a difficult time trying to figure out what to send me haha 🙂 Have a blessed week!
Always and Forever,
