February 8 , 2016 #hardwork

Well, we had Transfers. Sister Gardner and I are together for my final
transfer!! And oh boy have we had some wild experiences and crazy
miracles already!

Last p day we had a zone hike to a Russian Temple Prayer building. The
hike was actually a 15 min walk. It's a very small prayer place. But
it was fun to see how other people worship.

Earlier in the week Eagle River Valley had a relief society activity.
Brother Killpack is a therapist for the military. He came and spoke to
everyone. We had two nonmembers come! Sherri & Jackie. It was
amazing. Brother Killpack did a wonderful job :)

First off Katie, who Sister Price and I had been trying to meet for
forever, has been coming to church pretty regularly. We weren't sure
if she was a member or not. And turns out she isn't. She asked Bishop
Parks if she could be baptized!!! Right now we're just waiting on her
to get her parents permission. MIRACLE!! Another is The Betz's friend
Matt asked if he to could take the lessons! He might live in Meadow
Creek's boundaries so we're figuring all that out.... Miracles are
happening in Eagle River!

On transfer day, we went to visit people in one of my old areas, Jewel
Lake. So that was fun! Talked to Sister Pettijohn and Sister Bagley.
One is the relief society president and the other is a sweet old lady
we used to visit weekly. Oh, I have missed that area!

We had a declared ice day this week. We were headed to hang at the
church till our correlation. (Ice days you must go in unless you have
a set lesson. But the next lesson was only 45 mins till and we didn't
want to get to our house and just drive back.) as we were on our way
to the church we rounded a corner and found a truck stuck- blocking
the road. It was too slick for us to get out and push. And since we
have a rule where your companion must back you we just sent some
prayers up since we were basically useless. Then another car comes
around the bend (opposite direction than us) and out jumps Brother
Stewart (ward mission leader for Eagle River Valley Ward). He starts
trying to help and the neighbor comes out with salt. We hop out and
volunteer to be weight in the bed of the truck. So there we are, in
skirts, sitting in a soaked truck bed while it's raining. And that's
how Sister Gardner met Brother Stewart. (The correlation was actually
at his house! HAHA). The truck did eventually move and all was well.

I hit 17 months this week! WAHOO!

I hope you all have had a wonderful week!
