"How long have you been away from civilization??"

Hello everyone!!

Another beautiful week on Olympia! For starters, it has been SO cold
and I'm just loving it. People, we're in Florida get wearing coats and
tights. Yay.

Like I said last week we've been having meetings galore and this week
we had a worldwide missionary training which was pretty legit. Nothing
new is happening but it was good to get back to the basics of
missionary work.

Guess what! A Less Active we're working with, Linda Long, came to 
church yesterday!!!!!! holy cow it was awesome.

So we found a lot of new investigators this week! We had some really
cool experiences where we were definitely led by the spirit. One of
them is a former investigator who has family members who are members.
She opened the door and was so happy to see us! She said she's ready
to learn :)

Yesterday we had a super cool experience. We went to go see an
investigator we had picked up a few weeks ago and FINALLY got to meet
with him. His best friend just moved in last Monday as well. We taught
them both and the spirit was so strong. Ah we are so excited!

On Saturday we met this woman named Heather (I freaked out a little,
miss you Heather!!) and taught her. She came to church on Sunday! I
was slightly shocked when she walked in but it was so great. Prayers
for her please!

We're working with a part member/less active family. The dad served a
mission in New Zealand and we found out that it's the same mission my
dad served in!! Even cooler, they served in the same zone! So, dad, I
will be sending you a picture of his picture :)
Another less active family we're working with, the Jean-Gilles have 3
kids that just love when we come over. Last night we taught them and
then asked the kids to invite their friends to church. The oldest
(he's 13) kind of freaked out and said he wouldn't do it so we role
played with him and it was the funniest thing. We tried to act as his
friends and he kept saying "they'd never do that!" Until he asked how
long we had been away from civilization haha! Apparently I no longer
know the social norms haha.

I was reading in Mosiah 16-17 this morning about Abinadi. As I was
reading I realized how much chapter 16 outlined the atonement and then
17 is abinadi's final testimony. He is SO bold and courageous. He
exemplifies the Savior in his courage and I hope we can all be firm in
the faith.

I love you all! Thank you for all you do. Don't forget that God loves you :)

One more thing. Supposedly we're down to 75,000 missionaries in the world. 
Everyone needs to serve a mission!
