no excuses.

life is so. good.
like SO GOOD.
i've been reunited with so many people in Burley this week
ALL of the winmills.
rick and heather.
momma poulsen.
the stake presidency!
oh i LOVE these people.
mookie (winmill boy) gave his farewell talk in sacrament yesterday
so i got to go see him speak and he did SO good!
i'm so proud of that boy.
he's leaving on the 21st for his mission to Tallahassee, Florida!
so. we are back on bikes.
it's currently dumping snow.
and my bike tires keep going flat.
but i feel like God popped my tire the other day
aaaand gave us serious ice cream cravings.
because that's how we found a new investigator!
haha we were trying to find a road in my old area
but i could nooooot remember exactly where it was.
it was like 20 degrees and we were walking with our bikes (flat tire)
riiiight past dairy queen....
so naturally...
we rode through the drive through with our bikes and got us a mini blizzard
...cause that makes sense when you're already freezing?
the DQ girls gave us directions and we were on our way to contact a referral
wheeeeen we met two young men on bikes
i made a joke about them lookin' like one of us
proceeded to ask if they were LDS. one of them was, the other wasn't.
we asked if he went to a church and he said
"no one has ever invited me"
long story short we're meeting with them this week!
and he is living with rick and heather's sister. #doublewin
i love how God works.
we spent most of our time this week out meeting people in our ward.
LOTS of work to do to build up our area.
i'm excited though.
the people here are so good.
so happy to hear some of you are joining me on the BOM reading!!
I love love love the Book of Mormon.
soooooo much to learn.
today i was reading about how Nephi "delighteth in proving unto my people that save Christ should come all men must perish."
how grateful I am to know that he HAS COME. that we won't perish. that we have scriptures that testify of Him and His gospel and the key is to remembering Him, always, and sticking it out till the end. NO EXCUSES.
i love you guys.
we're in this together.
sister ramsey
