Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes

Frosted Hair
So we've been without a car all week since they're putting a new bumper on it. Which means we walk. And walk. And walk. And walk. The other night it was -30 windchill. It's good exercise though haha Sister Hill's eyelashes and eyebrows had frozen water droplets on them and the ends of my hair were frosted. It's a good time haha

Roni is FANTASTIC. We had a lesson with her on Thursday and another Saturday and she's "Sharpied" (Roni-code for officially agreed to and finalized) January 16th for her baptism! She's seriously already asking the people she wants to speak and the likes! We're way pumped. One of us won't be here for it though. We have transfers on the 30th which means one of us will be leaving Tofield. We don't find out until the 28th who it will be, but it will probably be Sister Hill since she's been here for 6 months already.

Exchanges were this Friday and Saturday, so Sister Hill went in to the city and I stayed here in Tofield with Sister Platter. She was impressed that I knew my way around Tofield so well, but it's so small there's not much to know haha She was here with the -30 windchill so she was thankful to get back in her nice warm car on Saturday.

Snow Angel
It was a good Sunday! We had 2 new investigators come (plus Roni because she comes literally every week haha) and a less-active we've been trying to get to come for a long time. We taught the lesson in Gospel Principles and talked about all the scriptures in the Book of Mormon that prophesy of Christ coming. It turned into a great discussion about the importance of the Book of Mormon. It was cool to hear so many people bear testimony of the Book of Mormon and how important it is. It strengthened my own.

Weirdly enough, we went over to those investigators house yesterday to talk to them about church and how they liked it and they ended up dropping us. They talked about how they felt good at church, and loved the organization, and the people, and felt like the lessons were exactly what they needed to hear, but they didn't want to join our church. What?? Why on earth not?? They also said that when they prayed about the Book of Mormon, they picked it up and then dropped it so they decided it was a sign from God that it wasn't true. What?? They still love our guts though and said that we're like family to them now and to come over any time. Sometimes it takes people years to join the church. Iss ok. Someday they'll read the Book of Mormon and realize that it's so good.

Well I'll end with MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY. 3 days left to do last minute shopping and wrapping, but make sure you take a minute to think about why we do all the things we do at Christmas. Also make sure to take a minute to serve people this Christmas. For some people it's the most wonderful time of the year, but for lots of other people it's the most miserable. Do something nice for somebody. If you see a missionary on the street, give a handshake and a Merry Christmas: it's sad to not be with out families, but we know what we're doing is the GREATEST. Sometimes we just need a little lovin'.

I love you!

God loves you more.

Peace and blessings ✌🏻️

P.S. A member in our branch has this weird water that he shoots with electrodes or something and it's supposed to kill all bacteria. Or something. It's literally just water in a spray bottle. We can't even remember what it's really called and don't think it really does anything, but we use it for EVERYTHANG. Have a zit? Spray some magic water. Have a stomach ache? Swig some magic water. Teeth need whitening? Swish some magic water. Toe hurts? Dip it in magic water. #magicwatertakescanada

P.P.S. Surprise!
