Lots of Snow in DC...and a Baptism Date!

On the bus....not moving!

We got like a Book of Mormon of snow! haha, oh man, I hope you think that's as funny as I do!
Notice there are only a few car lights on the left. Our bldg was the only one with lights - we got lucky!

All of our wet stuff out to dry

Sorry I couldn't email you guys yesterday, things were crazy here in D.C.!!! Like I said, I think we got about 8 inches or so of snow, and we were down by the Capitol when it started to come down! So we had to take the bus back to our appartment, we got on the bus just after 6:30, well by 8:30 we were still about 10 blocks away from our appartment, and the road was more of a parking lot than anything else, so we decided that we would just get off and walk home. While we were on our way back, we noticed that a lot of people were having trouble getting their cars moving with all the snow (because NO ONE has 4 wheel drive out here haha) so we thought we would try to help people get their cars going. It was pretty funny actually, because we were jogging most of the way, only stopping to help people get their cars unstuck, I bet people who saw us were like "Who are these guys?!" haha. And then as soon as we got back home, I didn't have enough time to email, so that is the story of yesterday.

Other than that though, things are continuing to go well, we were able to go to the Visitor's Center with our cute member and his sister this past Thursday, and it went really well. She was so happy just to get out of the house with her brother, she said that since he came home from the hospital that they haven't been able to do that. Now she has a baptismal date for Feb. 6th (I believe something else is happening on that date right? ;) ) [Steve's b-day] and she is really excited for it! They were also able to come to church!! And there were so many people that wanted to sit next to them that there wasn't room for either Elder Krugman or me, so she is pretty much already a part of the ward, now she just needs to get baptized!

We also had the opportunity to go to the Visitor's Center with another one of our investigators, who we have had a hard time finding what is holding her back, but the sisters at the VC were able to, at least a little bit, find out what is was, now it is up to us to keep working on that.

Well, it sound like you guys are doing great! Thanks for the package by the way!!! I was dying when I read the little letter inside! haha you guys are the best! And thanks for the updates! Keep them coming! I love you guys, and I will talk to you again next week!
