Church was a little quiet yesterday. Saturday night it snowed. Really really hard.
I think we got about 15 inches of snow. Maybe. Tons of fun.
But, because the snow was so bad and this is Vermont and most people live on little podunk dirt roads, very few people were at church yesterday. I counted about 35. Compared to the 135 we usually have.
So we had sacrament meeting, then the rest of church was cancelled!
It was actually really fun though. Having such a small group for church. It seemed so much more cozy. The Spirit just seemed so much stronger as well. It was awesome.
That's pretty much the most exciting story I have from this week. Nothing else is really going on. We're just slaving away in the freezing cold, trying to tell people about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and how wonderful it is. And no one wants to listen to us.
We did meet a couple people this week who have a lot of potential. No new investigators yet, but we're hoping they'll be interested again next time we go back. Stay tuned for next week and I'll let you know if anything happens!
I mean we've been spending most of our time lately trying to find people to teach. Something has got to come of it soon. Either that or Sister Burton and I are just terrible missionaries. But we're trying really hard. So we should find people eventually, right? That's what we keep telling ourselves. And we're praying really hard that we'll find people. So it'll come.
Meanwhile, Christmas is in just over a week! And what gets people in the spirit of Christmas more than watching Christmas videos? Watching Christmas videos on mormon.org! I watched this video earlier this week and thought it was pretty good. It's featuring the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and one of the stars of the Youtube sensation, Kid History! Watch it and enjoy.
Well, that's the update for this week. Not much else to report. Vermont is cold, missionary work is hard, but the church is true! So it's worth it.
Love you all!
