The Montana Messenger

Good afternoon!

This week was absolutely Fantastic! Not only was skyping home amazing, but we also got a new Investigator!
So first, skyping home! I am so thankful for the opportunity that I had to talk to and to see my family! It truly was amazing!  I loved seeing you all! 

I had an absolutely wonderful Christmas! Dinner was actually pretty amazing, we got to eat at two houses, one a less active, part member family. Sister Luckinbill's and then we ate at a active families house, the Roths. Sister Roth is actually really funny, she looks just like Shelly, and even has a lot of the same personality. Just completely Mormon. Totally hilarious. 

Next we got a new investigator! Her name is Andrea and she is the most awesome person ever! We met her, funny enough, knocking on the wrong door! She answered, Invited us in, then let us show her the Christmas video and talked to her about Jesus Christ. The coolest part however was that she asked us to come back and set a date/time with us! It truly was an answer to our prayers!

Another miracle that happened this week was that at church we had a les active couple show up who told us that they wanted to get back In the church! It's really cool because apparently a ton of their family is In the Ward and this is really an answer to their prayers. :)

So something really awesome this week is that we had the great opportunity to walk all day the other Day! It was so cool! We got the chance to walk almost all over town, from the flats, all the way to Walkerville. (Walkerville is the part of town on the hill that they have a hard time driving to when there's snow on the ground, so they have to walk - hence "Walkerville". ) It was so amazing! While I totally felt like that kid from the Christmas story, it was quite a cool experience to walk all over town yesterday. :) Also, it's now snowing! It's been snowing for a few days now and there is snow everywhere! Our backyard probably has a few feet honestly.

Honestly, apart from the amazing Christmas Day, it's been pretty slow, however things are totally looking up! We finally have a few investigators and the one on date is totally going to be baptized. :)

I am so thankful for this gospel, for our loving Heavenly Father, and for his son, Jesus Christ. :) I love this gospel, my family, and my friends. Thank you all for all of your support. Have a most Fantastic week!

 A picture I took with the wonderful Bro. Jennison  who gives us free lunches at the Leopard Cafe.

On Christmas Nick told us of the morning he woke up to a bright orangish glow coming from his kitchen window, and he assumed it was going to be another glorious Montana sunrise.  Unfortunately that was not the case as their neighbor's home had caught on fire.  Fortunately he thinks the whole family was away for the Holidays so nobody was hurt, but unfortunately he heard that they lost everything in that fire. 

Never give up, Never Surrender!
