Stir Crazy

Well, it's been an interesting week...yes it has, yes it has. Actually we only really were able to work for 2 days this week. :(
We had a giant blizzard on Tuesday and our vehicles were grounded. There was another time about a month ago when the vehicles were grounded and we asked if that meant we were supposed to stay inside or walk and we were told to we did. Well, we asked the Zone Leaders what were supposed to do and they told us to walk again. Welllllllll, we did and our appointments were really far away and there was LOTS of snow coming down. This lady passed us and told us she was a member and wanted to give us a ride. She was really nice and she even had her scriptures in the car so we knew she was legit. We got to our appointment and they weren't home so we started walking to the next one. Next thing I know Sister Jergensen is calling us and asking us why we're out in the snow. She had just gotten a call from the woman's father that gave us a ride because she was really worried about us. Sister Jergensen told us that everyone was supposed to be indoors. It turns out that 3rd Ward Elders stole the Zone Leaders phone and they were the ones who told us to walk. I guess they didn't actually think we would do it but....I was just doing what I thought we were supposed to and Sister Jergensen wasn't very happy when she was talking to me. So the next day, Wednesday, they had us stay in all day as well.
In other news, we were able to work on Thursday. It was a pretty good day. We taught Jovita. She's a referral from Esmerelda (one of our members) She has LOTS of questions, which is good :)
Hermana Rials hurt her back when she was in the MTC and she reinjured it on Thursday so the next day we were stuck inside all of well as Saturday, we went to the doctor that day...and Hermana got some medication that made her VERY sleepy! She's in so much pain that we weren't even able to go to church. We were just inside all day! We've been going a little crazy. (We made a really funny tape yesterday :) ) I think I'm a little bit crazier than she is though because I've been awake the whole time and she's been sleeping a lot. I've read almost all of conference, there were so many talks I loved! "Receive the Holy Ghost" by Elder Bednar. I love it when he tells us that we need to invite the Holy Ghost. It says, that the Holy Ghost will "avoid us" if we don't properly invite him. I had the thought that the reason why he'll "avoid us" is becuase he's not comfortable there. It makes me so excited I just want to share it all with you, but I can't so just read it yourself :) I like how Pres. Monson says in "Till we meet again" he was comparing the words from Conferences with the sermon of King Benjamin "We could echo the words, found in the Book of Mormon, of those who heard the sermon of the great King Benjamin and cried with one voice, saying, Yea, we believe all the words which thou hast spoken unto us, and also, we know of their surety and truth, because of the Spirit of the Lord Omnipotent." He also tells us "take time to read the conference talks...they are deserving of our careful study." Awesome, I always wish for more time to study because it goes by so fast and now I've got it...lots and lots of time to study.
We went to the chiropracter today to see if he can heal my companion so she's no broken anymore. So that we can start working again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Pues. I love you all!
