Snow, Snow and More Snow!

Good Rivalry Week to ya everybody (more on that later). Well the snow has fallen and Dillon is covered in a blanket of white. Since Friday night we have had a consistant snow fall through Saturday night. It snowed about 8 inches in the valley and we have hit a low of -18 with the wind chill. Luckily for the most part I'm staying warm and we have been safe driving. The snow has sure made everything pretty. It's been fun to drive around town and see everything covered in a blanket of snow. We shoveled the church's sidewalks Saturday morning and by Saturday night they were all covered again. Hopefully it made it a little easier on those that shoveled Sunday morning.

This week went pretty good work wise. We were able to start teaching a part member couple named the C's. He is a member and has decided he wants to start coming back to church and he and his wife
told the bishop they'd like us to come over and teach them. The two lessons we had with them this week went really well. We were also able to catch the last min. of the Montana vs. Montana State game at the
C's. Unfortunetly U of M lost in the last min of the game. It was fun to see the end of the big rivalry game up here. We drove up to Butte for district meeting this week. This is before the weather got bad so we took the scenic route which is still the same mile wise. It was really pretty. It cuts across twin bridges and through a canyon. At d-meeting they introduced a mission wide assignment called Christ Centered Christmas. From now until Christmas 30 min. a day we are suppose to read the verses found on Christ in the topical guide and each day pick one we liked and write about it. I would encourage everyone to do a similar thing individually or as a family. I've only done it a few days so far but it's been really good and I know it's going to strengthen my testimony as will it yours. One funny thing that happened last night as it was 7 degrees outside was I spit and wanted to see how long it would take to freeze. Let's just say spit freezes pretty fast at 7 degrees. haha

Church was good this week. This was my first week with the Dillon wards. It was also my first time attending two wards in the same Sunday on my mission. It was good to finally get to meet some more members. Each ward is about 120 active members. Dillon 2 Ward had their primary program and the kids sped through it so fast Sacrament Meeting ended 20 min. early. haha Oh and we are speaking in 2 wards next week.

So  Thanksgiving should be good. We have one for sure set meal with a potential of 2 others. So Thursday will Definitely be a filling day full of food. The only thing we are not having that I am sad about is no Turkey Bowl :(

Well now my views on Rivalry Week! BYU vs. Utah. If BYU wins it will be in a close game. If Utah wins it could either be a blowout or a close game. I having seen neither team play can't really predict anything. I'm going to say it's a close game though and I hope Utah gets cocky and gets beat. So GO BYU!!! BEAT Utah!!!
Love you all. Talk to you later.
