Another miracle happened! It snowed! My companion is from Long Beach, California, and absolutely loves snow, as do I. We were in a lesson, and it started snowing, and since that moment, we have both been very content. I also finally got to have one of my LIFE LONG dreams fulfilled. I have ALWAYS wanted to ride my bike in the snow, so guess what we did?: WE RODE OUR BIKES IN THE SNOW! That was possibly one of the best moments of my life so far. We didn't even fall over....well almost. We were doing so good, and we got to our garage and everything, but then my companion fell over while he was dismounting from his bike. I felt kinda bad, but it was pretty hilarious.
Lately it seems like we can't do anything wrong. Everything we do has been leading to awesome things happening. We decided to ride our bikes around in the snow just because we wanted to, and then the next day at church, we had a LOT of people come up to us and tell us what an inspiration we were to them because we were riding around even in the snow, and they're starting to really get excited about the missionary work. This work is honestly incredible!
So yesterday I had an interesting realization. We were at an investigator's house, and the mom of the family commented on how I am always super happy and smiling all the time. I thought about it, realized it was true, and then on later thought, I realized that I am probably the happiest that I have ever been in my entire life. We're having some CRAZY awesome experiences here, and I'm really starting to realize how much I'm going to miss the mission when it's all over. I've still got about 9 months left, but that's starting to feel extremely short. I wish this could just go on forever.
Yesterday we got to see the prayer of an 18 year old girl answered right in front of our eyes. Her family is getting baptized, and she wasn't sure if she wanted to or not. We took her off to the side and talked to her individually, shared some stuff from the Book of Mormon, and she started to cry. She now says that she wants to get baptized, and not only that but she wants to serve a mission, and do everything she can to follow Christ. You can't imagine how incredible I feel right now. It's indescribable.
The church is true. Of that there is no doubt!
