Greetings From the North Pole!

I have a story for you all. Once there were two missionaries, they were diligent little missionaries and wanted to be obedient. One night there was a scary blizzard that came and lasted for 3 days. That blizzard was so bad, and the drifts were really deep. Some of the locals were trapped inside until someone could shovel them out. The Mission President asked them not to drive their cars because of the danger on the roads. They were to go out on foot only. They put on their scarves, hats, thermals, boots, wool layers, coats, and gloves and set out to preach the Gospel. People thought these two missionaries were crazy for being outside in these conditions. Well, at their District Meeting that Friday, some of the other missionaries were talking about their "snow day". They soon learned of how the other missionaries stayed inside during the blizzard. Those two missionaries were Sister Johnson and Sister Hansen. 
The End. 

Well everyone, I hope you had a great week! We sure did, even though we were walking outside while it was snowing sideways. The cold temps are setting in this week, but that is good news because apparently some of the locals say that it doesn't snow terribly because it gets too cold. How is that possible you ask? I have no idea, but I am taking it from them. I think it snowed a good 2 feet, but don't quote me on that. 

We had a youth carnival planned for the youth to invite all their friends, and we were going to have all the people to teach, but then it got canceled due to the weather and that was a heart breaker. 

Don't forget that I love you! 

Seasons greetings from the Sisters 

Bishop Jacob's little girl Ju Ju got baptized this week

the Roskelleys gave us a little tree for our apartment!! 

So much love for this little one

The snow plows leave it in the middle of the cul-de-sac for the whole winter 

ZL's came to drop off a new car (has AWD so we are pumped) and those icicles had formed over night 

This lady named Marcell gave us candy canes at her door :)
