Its Good to Be Back! :)

Well We are back in Minot! Transfers were great and I got to See my friends from the MTC while we were all being sent to new areas! Sister Clegg is home and and I got to see her and say bye! That was weird because it seems like she was my trainer last week! but now shes gone! Its crazy! 
Sister Jarvies and I are trying our best to find some new investigators and we are doing our best to get the ward excited for missionary work! They are a great ward and we are so excited to work with them! 

This last week we got to carve pumpkins for Pday, It was super fun! We all were so excited to have them out on our back porches and then we all got transferred so I hope that the new sisters in Mandan enjoyed the decoration:) 

I remember the day before I came back up to Minot we were at the Trunk or Treat down in Bismarck I decided that this whole being cold thing isn't really working out..haha It was so cold! Some of the ward members were asking Bishop about if we were doing it out in the parking lot and he got on the microphone and said " Welcome to North Dakota, the trunk or treat is outside" haha It was so cold! But it was fun! We also have learned that we need jackets that block the wind because the cold isnt actually that cold but...then the wind blows and brrrr.... 

The other night while waiting for our passes to get onto base we got to chat with a few different people and just get to know them, they were really nice and we got to tell them a little bit about what we do and about what we believe. It was great! It is crazy how somethings are blessings in disguise. the only reason we got to meet those people is because we were stuck waiting for our passes for 2 hours.  I am grateful for how God works in small ways. He protects us even when we don't know it:) 

Yesterday we were out tracting and the wind was blowing so hard that we could stand at a slant and it would hold us up:) This is going to be a great winter!:) Well I hope all is well at home and that you are all getting ready for the winter and the christmas season, because it will be here before we know it:) I love you all! I would love to hear about any missionary experiences you have!:)
