Decisions, decisions

So this week was pretty hard because Kathy, our top investigator, needs to go to the ward she lives in and get baptized there as per church rules, so we reluctantly handed her over to her home missionaries. But the missionaries over there are being super uncooperative.  For example, we set an appointment for them to go see her and they told us "we are busy that night"- ?????- You’re kidding me right? We are basically handing you a baptism and all you can say is "we are busy." I was about to tell them that they need to move some things around because they apparently don't understand the point of missionary work. Ugh, sometimes other missionaries can be the greatest hindrance to missionary work.

Anywho, I'm really tired of winter.  It's gotten cold again: "the teens to twenties about" and I'm just counting down the days until spring. I love winter, I love snow, but biking in it isn't my cup of hot chocolate.

Anywho enough of that. This week we had a bit of manna fall from heaven. We got a referral for this lady named Natasha. She is a nonmember married to a less active who referred HERSELF on They recently got married and had a lot of missionary discussions in the past. They just moved in here from Oregon to stay. She expressed a desire to be baptized and they both want to quit smoking and return to church. Yay!

In other news, I'm not sure if I told anyone but this transfer is going to be shorter than the others. This transfer will end on Feb 26 instead of March 5.

Also, after church yesterday I started playing the piano in the primary room and one lady from the ward came up to me and asked if I wanted to perform a piano solo in sacrament meeting. I thought about it and agreed. So I guess I am doing a piano solo in sacrament meeting next week. So I get to perform for the first time my own music. (I'm planning on writing a piano arrangement for "Our Savior's Love" or "Be Still My Soul") So I'm pretty excited. Well that's all the news I have for today. Hope everything is working out all right!
