Well not too much exciting happen this last week. There was a huge ice storm that came through and it shut the state completely down. There was about 2 inches of ice everywhere if I wanted I probably could’ve put ice skates on and skate anywhere because the ice covered everything.

well it kind of sucked because president told us not to go outside because it was "dangerous" it really was but everyone was so scared that no one left their homes so after we hit that point we got cabin fever pretty bad and couldn’t handle it much longer so we went and knocked a few doors since we knew that everyone was stuck in their houses so we used it to our advantage. While we were trapped in our apartment luckily because elder winter plays the guitar a member had let us borrow a guitar so we sat inside and wrote songs all week and pretty much we are going big. We might have to have a world tour or something because we’re going to make an album and its going worldwide.

 

While being bunkered down in our apartment all week the assistance called me and informed me that the lord has called me to train a new missionary. Yeah wasn’t expecting that at all. Kind of nervous for it. Yet I am so dang excited. I get to meet my new son on Wednesday. At first I was thinking that how could I do this and I am one that shouldn’t be doing this. But then president wolfert read I this quote and it said "whom the lord calls the lord qualifies" and it is so true that the lord does qualify everyone he calls. no matter what calling or whatever he has asked of us as we diligently follow him and do all we can to listen and obey him then he will be there for us to lift us up in times of need and make us strong enough to make it through situations we never thought we could handle. He truly is thee for each of us. He loves us. He loves you. He wants to see us succeed and wants to see us grow. He doesn’t give us anything we can’t handle but realistically if we have him on our side then we can handle anything. So grateful.

 

I am sad that elder winter will be leaving me now. I have had so much fun with him and I really am going to miss him.

 

Overall it has been a very different week. It has felt so weird. It’s all a crazy blur. But I am excited for this next upcoming week there are a lot of changes happening around me with so many missionaries being changed.

 

We’ve had some pretty awesome Pday nerf wars

 

I love you all. Be safe. And stay awesome.

Therefore it came to pass that elder winter and elder Ross did wax strong in the work of the lord. Yeah they did persist to do all they could for the souls of their brethren. For it did bring our souls to such great pain to even think of them to perish in unbelief. 

And lo as elder winter and elder Ross did abound in great works of god they did receive a referral from mormon.org. And it came to pass that this guy’s name was Caleb and the brother of Caleb was known as garfeny. They were men of sound understanding and thirsteth for truth in the gospel of Jesus Christ. And they did search for that cup in which would quench their thirst. Thus they were led to seek out representatives of the lord and savior Jesus Christ. As we were called to give those that drink and provide the means by which their thirst would end, we did thus ride our bikes and go to their place of slumber. As we did come upon their home they did welcome us in. thus we did converse and agree on doctrine. How great was our joy as they began to vocally explain that they believed in a restoration. Before we had even thus spoken our words of glad tidings. And again how great was our joy when they asketh about the priesthood and authority of god. And thus we can see that these men had been prepared of god and among those elect people that are chosen to receive the gospel at this time. At this moment in time the spirit did swell in our hearts and lo it did pierce the very depths of our soul and did cause our energy to be drained. But ye our excitement did overpower and drive us to be diligent in searching for more souls thirsting for the gospel. 

And thus the prophecies of the weather for the future days did foretell a great and marvelous snow storm. And lo it has put fear into all that have heard of its presence. And so it came to pass that our dear president wolfert has commanded all the servants of the lord to be very careful and we are only allowed to serve to lord on our feet. Thus no cars or bike will be used until three nights after tonight. 


and I Elder Ross do write this scriptural account of my dealings with the people of the Georgia Atlanta north mission for my family and friends that they may learn that I  do greatly send my love to all my family and friends and loved ones. And lo I pray for thee and do greatly love my lord. And do seek for many ways throughout the day to serve him in all my doings. And for this I write that all who may read may find ways to share and serve everyone they come amongst. That they may find ways to show that love that our savior Jesus Christ has shown for each one of us.

Holy cow this week was awesome. I felt like I was home. It snowed a whole whopping two inches. And you would've thought the world ended. It turned almost straight to ice and there were cars everywhere. No one knows how to drive in the snow and then add some ice and it was so dangerous to even be on the sidewalk. Traffic was completely stopped for almost 24 hours. People ended up getting sick of waiting around and some even ran out of gas or the battery died. So people were just leaving their cars parked on the side of the road or even in the middle of the road and just walking away. It was like the walking dead. Abandoned cars everywhere. And car accidents everywhere. We walked around and just helped push people up hills and help them to get unstuck.  It was quite and adventure.

It was nice because like the day after the storm everyone was too scared to leave their homes so we knew they would be there so we used the opportunity to do some good tracting. Everyone was home and we had they all trapped.

I got to get my good fix of snow therapy that I have been wanting for a while now. So that was nice. A good snowball fight and some legit sledding is always fun!!

A couple weeks ago we traced into this guy named Steve he was so nice to us and seemed really interested. And then this last week we went back to see him again and as we talked to him we came to find out that he truly was being prepared to hear our message. There is a single mother in the ward that lives down the street from him and he knows her and the ward actually had the cub scouts pinewood derby last week. And we had a heard about this guy that came to it and was asking questions and was really interested. Well come to find out Steve helped the son of this lady with his pinewood derby car and he was the guy that everyone was telling us about. I guess he came to see how the car was going to do. And being at the church sparked his interest even more. It was really awesome to see the many different ways the lord is working his magic.

Well I heard that the super bowl was a blow out. I was not expecting to hear that.  

Man I love all so much. Be safe. Have a blessed week.
