The week of the ice age is over! Oh my it was crazy here in TN! It was an unreal week. No cars because there was an inch or more ice on the ground! It was unreal! No one really left their houses all week! We had to walk all week and weren't suppose to go to far from home, but we saw lots of miracles. It was pretty cool. We had a miracle everyday! On Monday we went over and taught a Hispanic name Juan. The sister's found him a few weeks ago. He works a ton, but he is home usually on Mondays. He doesn't speak any English, and my Spanish is weak. I can somewhat testify but that's it. The spirit was super strong in the lesson, and he had just finished reading some of the Book of Mormon when we showed up. We read 2nd Nephi 31 with him, and ha made a commitment to be baptized! It was sweet! He said he will ask to get off work on Sunday's for a few hours so he can come! Then on Tuesday (My Birthday) we braved the ice and walked to an set appointment we had with Mr. McDowell, and we talk to him about plan of salvation! He had some awesome insides about the fall, and the spirit was super strong. He is reading the Book of Mormon and seems to really enjoy that! Great lesson! Also the Ward is awesome here and spoiled me in my birthday! Took me out to lunch, and brought me a cake! We have a great Ward! Wednesday we woke up to a blizzard of snow! It was pretty cool! Wednesday our miracle came via FACEBOOK! I actually had someone message me back which is a miracle in itself, but we shared the whole restoration via FaceBook, and answered lots of questions! On Thursday we knocked a lot of doors and we met a couple of new investigators! Friday we still were on foot, but we found a less active member! We were knocking doors, and he let us in and we thought he was interested in hearing the message so we started sharing the restoration. Than he told us he was a member, and how he use to be a high priest group leader! He just moved here last month. He has stomach cancer, and he doesn't think he's going to live. It was sad, but great to meet him. Saturday it rained a lot, but strange enough it didn't melt the ice or anything, it just flooded.. The miracle for Saturday was that we could drive the car! The last miracle was the best, and it came yesterday Sunday. We didn't have church because of the weather. Which was lame. We texted all our investigators and told them no church, but we decided to go up to the building at one o'clock just to make sure, and sure enough there came Don! He didn't see our text. We talked for a while! It was great! We showed him the font, and went over the baptismal question! He then read a paragraph from his niece saying that she can come on the 14th of March she would love to come! So we set a solid date! He's the man. Kerry was snowed in all week but we are meeting with him Thursday. It was a great week last week even with the weather so bad, and I do have to say it was super cool looking all the ice. Even with the weather, the lords work will keep going.

Life is good here in Tennessee, little cold but good. Love ya'll!
