We got snow again this week! It was awesome but then the weather decided to melt it away. Honestly Utah can never decide on whether it’s winter or early fall. Sometimes its 18º F and sometimes its like 55º F but it’s finally snowball season.
On Thanksgiving we played 4 hours of football in the snow and then pigged out at one of our Bishop’s houses. He is awesome. Than evening we got all together with the zone and had a huge Nerf battle (we all are children at heart).
With Thanksgiving this week it made it slightly difficult to meet with people but it was still a great week. We are teaching a less active by the name of Jill. When we started teaching her she had some pretty negative opinions about the church but now she has done a complete 180º. Our most recent lesson with her was about the importance of the Sacrament and worshiping on the Sabbath. It was amazing. She committed herself to be at church this Sunday. The Atonement truly does help us change.
We taught Brother Vincent this week who is struggling with some of the commandments even though he has been a member his whole life and gone to the temple. We invited everyone at the lesson to read from the Book of Mormon and pray to know if Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I was able to do that this week and had an amazing experience receiving a confirming witness that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith was the prophet of the Restoration.
You guys are all awesome!
Love, Elder Jared Blatter
