Ohh the weather outside is frightful....as long as we have places to go....Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! -Feb 7

Dear Fam and Friends,
Yes it is snowing! Last week it snowed over a 1 & 1/2 feet! And today it is at it again. Last week when it snowed, we couldn't drive. So we got on our gear and decided to walk to a "close" apartment complex. It took us like 2 hours to walk there because of the snow. We were super excited to do it. We were singing and everything. The wind was blowing straight on us lol. By the time we reached the apartment complex...my hair was frozen lol. We taught and then had to head back so it wouldn't be dark. Then we ate dinner and knocked in our apartment complex. Yay for snow!
The rest of the week was great. We took out this amazing member with us, her name is Hermana Serrano. She is amazing. She got baptized almost three years ago. She helped us so much this last week. The day she went with us her sister in Mexico died. Her sister just had twins that are two weeks old. We were so shocked that this happened. She told us two days later and we went to visit her. She was such an example to us. She just talked about all of the reasons that it was a blessing and because of the gospel she knows she will see her again. She is the only member in her family and I really think this is a blessing for her family to look towards her to know about the gospel. I just love her.
Then this last week we went to visit a less active member and his wife. We got there and got to know them. They were super chatty :) We then talked to them about prayer. She said that she doesn't feel like God listens and answers  her prayers. We ofcourse asked her why. She told us that her husband has a drug addiction and she feels like God has not heard her prayers. This brother will disappear for days and she will have no idea what is going on. She wants a divorce. We invited them to go to church and give it a try. This just showed me that we really have no idea what is going on in the lives of others, but God can help us help them. I fasted that they would come and they did. I really hope that we can help them change their lives.
We have so many great investigators right now. I am so excited for all the work. We have such great goals this week and I am really excited to see them come to pass. We are super busy! The best thing to be as a missionary. We have two weeks left in the transfer and I really think I might get transfered. We shall see. Tomorrow I am going on exchanges with Hermana Coughlen and I am really excited to be with her for one more day.
Well sorry its so short this week, didn't have a lot of time!
I love you all,
Hermana Spencer
P.S. The Book of Mormon is amazing!
