Finally some Snow!

So this week was a really really good week! On Tuesday we got a good

amount of snow so that was fun it was kinda cold all week the

temperature has been crazy here one week it was sunny it hit 80 at one

point and this week it snowed and got to the teens haha. We were

supposed to have zone conference but cancelled it because if the snow.

Towards the end of the week it did start to warm up a little and it’s

spring break some places so a bunch of tourist this last week. We

moved on Wednesday that was exciting it’s kinda cool we can see the

top of the national basilica from outside my window so that’s kinda


We are still working a lot with G he’s a super cool dude that just has

a desire to help people he’s had a lot of second chances in his life

so really feels like it’s his turn to give back. On Saturday morning

and he came to that and was really excited to be there and hooked some

people with some info of programs and who to call we have a returning

member who is homeless and he took big steps in helping him out he’s

just a really awesome dude that loves Jesus and believes the best way

to serve him in by serving his fellow brothers.

The miracle of the week was Katherine on Saturday night we met

Katherine the most prepared person for the gospel I ever met she has a

incredible story how her life led her up to the church. Durning the

first lesson she asked if she had to keep praying to know if the Book

of Mormon was true if she already knew it was true. Also she’s a super

smart girl she has her masters for John Hopkins which is a pretty good

school. She lives in a way nice apartment in one of the most expensive

areas in town. But she’s just super awesome! super prepared! bad news

though is she wants to move to Utah in the beginning of April she

didn’t even know Utah was the Mormon Capitol haha. She grew up in

china has only lived in America for like 4 years. She applied to work

at BYU already haha But she really really wants to get baptized before

she leaves so we set the date of April 1st and she met with the bishop

on Sunday and he’s really excited for her as well. She just loved

church loved the spirt she felt and that she was able to learn so

much. I have never taught someone with such a ability to just take

information in and learn it and understand it. She took like 4 pages

of notes durning our lessons and then more notes during church and had

great questions. She’s super awesome!!

On Saturday I had the privilege of going to Alexis baptism in Brooklyn

Park. That was amazing, she was so excited and so many people came out

to support her it was just incredible. The gospel will really change

her life forever. We met her my first week in Brooklyn tracting.

Afterward she shared her testimony and thanked Elder Criddle and I

repeatedly it was one of the highlights of my whole mission is seeing

the way the gospel has changed her and brought so much happiness to

her. I’m so grateful Elder Criddle and I were able to go.

I love you all and am so grateful for your support and hope you all

can find some something to be grateful for this week! Have a great
