Hey everyone!

This week has been an incredible one! Lot's of great things happening in Greenfield!

We've had a couple of Red dot days this week...including today. We've been walking everywhere because we're not allowed to drive. The snow is INSANE! It's up to my knees...and I'm not that short!! But I love the snow! It's freezing and it slows us down...but it's so pretty!!

Yep, up to my knees.

We even had a snowball fight last P-day with our Zone which was really funny. Our Zone is so awesome!!

So we had Stake Conference this weekend, and it was incredible! President and Sister Packard came to speak at it, and they were just amazing as usual. Their talks blew everyone away. Especially President Packard's because he gets so passionate and animated when he speaks. They really pumped up the whole Stake to use the missionaries and work with us, and it was AMAZING to see that people took immediate action!

We had tons of people from the branch come up to us afterwards and invite us over to their homes to teach their friends! We have a ton of appointments this week with people who told their friends about us, and invited us over for dinner with their friends!! We also had a family in the branch (who are AWESOME) come up to us and tell us that they want to have us over with some of our investigators and have a lesson in their home! So that's happening this week too! We are SO excited! Amazing things are happening!

Another great thing that happened this week is that Jose set a baptismal date!! He's getting baptised on the 8th of March! He is still a little hesitant, but he knows it's the right thing to do. And he did set the date! We are excited for him. He has come a long way, and he's making big changes in his life, so that he can better follow Jesus Christ.

We had an amazing lesson this week with a less active member, Anne. We felt like we should share with her the importance of bearing testimony. We shared our own personal testimonies with her. We know she has a testimony of the gospel, but sometimes she just forgets about how good living the gospel makes her feel. And she doesn't act on the testimony that she does have. But we know ourselves how bearing our testimonies strengthens them, so after we bore or testimonies to her, we invited her to bear her own testimony in testimony meeting next week (it's next week because it was Stake Conference this week). She took on our challenge so we are really excited for this. We know that as she bears testimony of the restored gospel, she will feel it in her heart, and her testimony will grow.

Well everyone, I hope you all have an amazing week! :)


Stay strong and stay safe!

I love you all! :)
