So after a downpour of about 8 inches of snow, followed by a wicked freeze, I only had to get out and push the car out of a snow drift four times.
In other news:
1. I finished Jesus the Christ. That should be required reading for all people everywhere.
2. Shout out to Hank and HB who fed us dinner and ordered me cheeseless pizza. It was unbelievably kind.
3. And corollary to that story. We had dinner with a family in our bishopric last night. They are so good at cooking, and so nice, and I want to be just like them when I grow up. But anyway, they made these appetizers that had some cheese in them, so I ate one, and as I’m chewing, their son looks at me and says “you’re not much of a cheese fan are you?” I don’t think I was making a face per se, but I think I was sort of staring at my plate with a determined look on my face while I tried to swallow it. So the cat’s out of the bag. We all had a good laugh about it though.
4. Our mission president challenged each companionship to have a baptism by the end of this transfer, which ends next week. So at the beginning of the transfer we did a mission fast and prayed for the members, the investigators, and the missionaries here in the CDSM. Well, next Saturday, the Grand Junction West Stake is having a baptism at 12:00, 1:00, 2:00, 3:00, 4:00, 5:00, 6:00, and 7:00. So. Miracles happen once in awhile.
And now, a note to the Galena Ward Young Men: (Will someone pass this on to them?)
