Service in Sweaters 11/10

So this week was pretty normal i guess. Normal in a relative missionary sense. Sorry if this letter is shorter. 
The temperatures are dropping and winter is coming. Not sure if I am excited or not.. still deciding . Monday though we had dinner with the Orotns a new family in the ward. It was so cute they have 3 little girls and a little boy and all they wanted to do was perform for us. Totally reminded me of all those time I am sure Sarah and I put on shows haha. We then went over to the Carrs a less active family in the ward and we were able to talk to sister Carr for a while and we just are trying to help her with the move and making sure she is doing okay. Tuesday we had district meeting and then we went to lunch at Daisy's probably the cutest place in the world its a little candy shop run by this older couple and they have a little diner attached to it. with soups and milkshakes. After that we went over to the older Thompsons in our ward and helped her rake up some leaves. Ya I learned to rake leave like a ton this week! We had dinner with Joan smith and her friend she took us to chilis for dinner YUM!! Had a lesson with David our new recent convert! We talked a lot about Family history work and he is really excited to take names to the temple soon. Wednesday We kind of had to run around in the morning to take care of some insurance stuff for sister Bly. We went with sister Christensen about ward missionary things and then we went and did service for these non-members. Anne and Van Petersen. Sister Manning in the ward told them we could help with some yard work. Van just had back surgery so he wasn't able to help so we cleaned out their gardens and raked.. again! we went back twice that week! Had dinner with the Perrons in the ward who they have 2 sons on a missions right now and then we went to contract a referral we have been trying to get a hold of forever. So we stopped by her mom opened the door, then she let us in and told us Kayla (the girl we were trying to contact) was sleeping but she asked if we wanted to sit down. We ended up talking to her for an hour and a half! She has so many people who are members of the church and she knows so much, in that short time she opened up about so much and I can honestly that it wasn't anything i said or did it was all the spirit. she invited us back and we are also going to help her paint! woot woot service! Thursday we had to run more errands.. :/ I had to pick up somethings from the hosptial and what not. We went over and helped sister manning finish painting her fence. had dinner at the Robinsons who we LOVE!! and weekly planned.. not so fun haha ;). Friday sister Bly had Physical therapy and then after we went and did more service!! helped sister Pertersen (different one than ann) who is a single sister in the ward we raked her leaves and then we mowed her lawn for her. Afterwards we sat and talked to her for a while. It amazes me how the members here are doing so much missionary work! She told us how she invited some people to do family history work so she was going to help them out! We had dinner that night at the Soloagas who is the less active family we have been helping. Oh My goodness I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!!! We had a blast over there and they are changing so much! since the first time we met them a month ago there has been such a change in there lives and there family. And they are ALL coming to church now! #BESTPARTOFMISSIONARYWORK! Saturday we Helped out Anne again and Mary Toft form another ward (she like JUST got home from her mission) Came and helped us, she was so much fun! We went over and helped out sister Adams, the primary president, get ready for the primary program. had Chinese dinner dropped off to us! GREAT!! and then we went to the elders baptism. After that we sat in the car for a while and sister Bly was struggling and so we talked and then we went and walked around the temple. It seriously is such a blessing to live so close to it! WOW! even though we cant go every week its still just a blessing being able to walk on the grounds it brought me so much peace and comfort that I cant even describe! Sunday we had church, we got to help sister Grimshaw in her lesson, had missionary meeting. Came home, lunch, weekly planned more since we didn't get to finish. Had dinner with the Spauldings who just moved in. He is our Gospel Essentials teacher and they are hilarious he reminds us so much of Caesar Flikerman from the hunger games!! Haha its there are seriously the sweetest people and we had such a good time with them! 
Well that's about all this week 2 new investigators and lots of service really cant complain Its great. Definitely bundling up here for winter its getting COLD! haha Love you all and hope the week is Warm :)
