The First Snow of the Season

So today when I woke up it was snowing and it is still snowing, probably the earliest it has ever snowed in my life.

So this past week we had the opportunity to go on exchanges and while I was in the other area, we were able to run into one of the less actives in the area and we helped her have a desire to attend church again.

As I was reading in the Book of Mormon this past week I was reading about how Nephi was able to read in the scriptures he had at the time and as he was reading he was able to receive revelation from god at the same time as he was reading and It was cool how after reading in Isaiah he had was able to also receive the 10 commandments in a way that was able to apply to him and his people. I just think it is awesome how you can read something and get one message out of it and when you go back to reread the same passage you get a different message from it that applies in a different way. I know that the Book of Mormon is a very strong and powerful tool that has the power to change everyone's lives and if we are able to read it everyday then we can be changed by it.

Also this past week it was my companions birthday and we were able to have a nice dinner and he even got a cake that the members had made for him. It was a fun time. and it looks like the temperature here is still cooling down. Just this morning it got down to -4 Celsius.

I love you all and I hope you have a good week.
