We were doing our weekly planning the church on Thursday and..... 


 ....bam! It was white by noon!

 remember this same spot like 3 weeks ago....

i love the snow! um, not really.....
'ello!

Sooooooooooo, it has snowed! It was really cold early this week. Then on Wednesday it snowed a little bit, not enough to stick. Then we were weekly planning the church on Thursday and bam! It was white by noon! This is very unusual for Portland. Last time there was a snow storm was 2009. Portland and the surrounding cities only have like 3 snow plows. The whole city literally shut down Thursday. School was let out early, people were leaving work early. It was crazy. We went to a lesson Thursday afternoon and it took us like 40 minutes to drive the 2 miles home. So many cars and everyone was driving so slowly. It was also scary because our car started sliding on a turn. Needless to say we having been allowed to drive till now. All the roads, all the sidewalks, all the parking lots, are slush. Sunday it was so icy. We had rain the night before so it froze everything. Even church was canceled because the roads were so bad. Our parking area in our apartment complex was literally pure ice. I could have ice skated on it. We have been walking around some but a lot has just been staying inside. It has given me cabin fever to the max. We have been inputting our area book into our iPads. Speaking of which......

So we had our iPad meeting on Tuesday and we got 'em. Everything is now on it. We have to put our whole area book in there. It is long and tedious process. It gives me a headache after a while. We have no more planners either, because they are now on our iPads. It's taken some getting use to. I miss our planners. We have till transfers (the 24th...happy bday sam) to get it all transferred over. Sis. Newman and I can input different information and the sync them and everything I imputed gets put on hers and vice verse. When we get transferred to a new area we simply just download that area book on our iPads and wha-la. No more call in reports because Pres. Morby and Salt Lake can see all our lessons that we did or haven't done because its all stored on our iPads. It's kind of hard to explain without showing you. We are one out of 30 missions in the states that is doing this. There is still kinks to the system so they want us to report any changes that should be made or suggestions to make.

We had our lesson with the married couple from last week. Plan of Salvation. It went good. You could tell the wife was thinking about it. The husband is more set in his ways. They fed us dinner. That was nice. I sure hope they progress. The gospel can just help families so much! She is the one that got a blessing a few months ago cuz she is having major health problems. Her LDS friend ask her if she wanted one. (yay for refferals! they are seriously the only way to go)

The lesson with guy we tracted into got canceled. Rescheduled for tomorrow. I hope it goes well.

Well, sorry not much to report on for this week. The snow just kind of threw everything for a loop. We tried to make visits to less-actives near our house that we could walk to thinking that they would be home because  everyone was just kind of stuck inside anyway but no such luck. We shall see what this week shall bring!

Love you all! Thanks again for everybody emailing me! It's makes me happy to hear from my family and friends!

Love,

Sis. Mag
