Okay okay okay I am SO SAD ABOUT THE OLYMPICS IT’S UNREAL. Ahhh. Okay. Enough of that. I can’t even get over it. 

 
So… Questions about if the power was out? No power was out. We have been totally powered and staying warm. No worries. 🙂
 
You’ll have to forgive me, everyone. This week I think my email is going to be a little bit shorter. My brain is all scattered but I’ll do my best. Bullet points are going to be the easiest way today. 🙂
 
—>Tuesday we got spent the night in Cranberry because our car was in the shop and we had District Meeting there the next day. We didn’t want to make anyone drive out twice in one day so we just stayed with the sisters there. It was a BLAST. Sister Gates and Sister Morphy are my favorites.
—>We had District Meeting but it SNOWED OVER A FOOT. That’s a big deal for PA, apparently. But we got STUCK. Our ride couldn’t come get us because of the roads so we had to stay one more night. Which was fun.
—>The Cranberry Sisters told us that we smell like smoke…. ALL THE TIME. I had no clue! I knew our apartment used to smell like smoke, but I thought that the Bath & Body Works Wallflowers I had put in everywhere had cleared it up. NOPE. And nobody told us! Oh my heck. So.. We called our landlord and apparently there’s a lady that is a huge chain smoker right below us. … We might be moving apartments if they have some vacancies. We’re waiting to hear back. I just HATE that smell when it’s on me and we’re supposed to be representatives of Jesus Christ. And we’re teaching about the Word of Wisdom and smelling like cigarettes? … Not okay. So we may move apartments within our complex. I’ll keep you updated if we do.
—>We taught Anthony again and it went REALLY WELL. But it’s kind of hard to be as excited about the lesson with him when he totally flaked last second on coming to church. So.. We’ll see about that one.
—>We taught this less active lady on Saturday night who has like 4 sons from different fathers and she takes care of all of them. They’re between the ages of 17 and 27 or so. Anyway, they had this friend over and I had no clue he wasn’t a son because I’d never met any of them. And I asked him what his name was. He said something that sound like “Sully” … Like the big furry monster from Monsters Inc. But when I didn’t hear him right he started unbuttoning his shirt and I kept thinking “Okay what the crap is this kid doing… Maybe he has his name tattooed across his chest or something…” Nope. Turns out he was trying to explain that his name is “Shouldaa” .. Double a is correct. So that was weird. Then it got even weirder when he went upstairs and sent the 17 year old son down to tell me that I was attractive and that even though I was off limits now that I should call him after I get home. HAHAHAHAHAHA…. No.
—>Apparently this is the worst winter that Pennsylvania has had in 20 years. It snows all the time and hasn’t been above 32 degrees Fahrenheit in as long as I can remember. Of course I come in the worst winter ever. Awesome.
 
Well everyone, I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true. The Gospel is SIMPLE. Not always easy at ALL, but it is simple. There is peace available to us as we continue to strive to keep the commandments and I’m grateful for the protection that they provide. 
 
I love you all! Have a great week!
 

Love,
