This week has been colder than most. The high each day has ranged between 11 degrees and 19 degrees. The low on two days was zero! The funny part of it is that it still doesn't feel as cold to me as my daily walks to the DC Metro to get to work. The humidity just does something to make all temperatures less bearable. Nonetheless, I am grateful that we're entering the cold part of the winter because that just means we're closer to my favorite time of year...when the weather is warmer!
This week we received a call from someone who had taken missionary discussions about a year ago. We had tried to meet her a few weeks ago, but she wasn't home. She called and asked us to come over so she could tell us that she had been reading the Book of Mormon for that year, studying the missionary lessons with a friend, and wanted to be baptized on January 12th! It is exciting to see how ready she is to jump into her single's ward and become involved. It will certainly be a great experience for the ward.
We also trained our eight ward mission leaders this weekend as part of a stake training. We were asked to do it since the high councilor was out of town for the weekend. It was a good opportunity and helped me realize all that goes into training people to do a volunteer role in a ward.
